Dark Cloud at Sun Valley
If you're thinking of buying property near this legendary ski and summer resort, better read the Wall Street Journal's thumbs-down review of its hotel properties first. "With bland, institutional decor, little atmosphere and few amenities, the hotel appears to have more in common with the naval-convalescence hospital it served as during World War II than the famed destination of its heyday. Its once-original ersatz Tyrolean village theme is tired, and what passes for service is provided by young foreign staffers with an often-shaky command of the English language, who, while polite, seem to have little training or professional supervision." Writer: Laura Landro, a thorough and picky staffer who has criticized other deluxe place in the past.
