Knob Hill Inn readies for reopening

Luxury hotel set to resume business Dec. 15

Express Staff Writer

Ketchum's Knob Hill Inn is prepping to host guests next month, following a sale to new owners last summer and a $750,000 renovation.

"The extensive remodel has brought the celebrated Sun Valley hotel back to the forefront of Ketchum's ski-lodge properties," states information provided by the hotel.

Upgrades have been made to the lobby, guestrooms, in-room amenities and fireplace room and banquet area in anticipation of a Dec. 15 reopening.

Columbia Hospitality, a hospitality management and consulting firm specializing in luxury hotel and resort management, will manage and operate the hotel.

The property was bought at auction on July 26 by a group of investors that includes Fred Crosetto, CEO of Ammex Corp. in Kent, Wash.; Eric Bensussen, president and co-founder of BDA Inc. in Woodinville, Wash.; Robert Cimino, CEO of Plaza Provision Co. in San Juan, Puerto Rico; and John Oppenheimer, CEO and founder of Columbia Hospitality.
