The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado

With a storied past, famous guests, and a beautiful landscape by which it is all surrounded, The Stanley Hotel is truly a piece of American history. Perhaps most well known for its part in Stephen King's notorious novel, "The Shining," The Stanley hotel is widely recognized as one of the country's most haunted hotels. In the small town of Estes Park, Colorado - the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park - this mysterious and magical retreat first opened its doors just after the turn of the 20th century. Today, it stands as a cultural novelty, complete with luxury accommodations, fine dining, and access to glorious wilderness and mountain adventure. Guest rooms are housed in either the main building, The Lodge at The Stanley, or Overlook Condos, and every space includes flat-panel television, pillow-top mattress, and complimentary wireless Internet access. Whether your room features scenic views, whirlpool tub, or even a haunted past, you are assured to be comfortable and well entertained at every moment.

Fully embrace your destination and take one of the hotel's professionally guided property tours, including the night tour, a glimpse into Concert Hall and Stanley Steamers, and a five-hour ghost hunt. With your appetite fully stimulated from such activity, The Stanley's three restaurants provide perfect respite. Fine dining at Cascades Restaurant includes classic American cuisine with a flair for steaks and a focus on locally sourced ingredients, and an award-winning selection of wines. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this magnificent dining venue is not to miss. Additionally, The Whiskey Bar & Lounge at Cascades serves lunch and dinner daily, plus a thoroughly impressive array of whiskeys and single malt scotches. Then for fresh pastries, sandwiches, and gelato, take a casual afternoon break at Steamer's Cafe. Set out to explore Estes Park, starting with Cascades Garden's beautiful butterfly encounter, where guests are invited to help release recently hatched butterflies. Local artists are featured in Stanley Sculpture Garden, and The Parlour Spa offers a way for you to unwind and indulge in some pampering. The majestic Colorado landscape is just the beginning, and at The Stanley you will have an unforgettable time inside as well in the great outdoors.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

My stay here was horrible, plain and simple. The only good thing was the Aiden Sinclair show. If we had to do it all over again we'd stay somewhere else (cheaper and better quality) and just see the hotel for what it is - a tourist attraction. Our bedding was covered in dog hair and we experienced several other issues. I brought these up during checkout and was given a $100 refund, which barely takes a dent out of the $500+ spent here. I was asked to send the operation's manager, Greg Shaw, an e-mail with more details about our issues we experienced. After waiting nearly two weeks for his response (none) I've decided to copy and paste the contents of that e-mail I sent here in lieu of re-writing it for a review, along with the pictures we took. "Sir, The wonderful young lady at the front desk of the Lodge told me that you wanted me to send a couple pictures to you. My wife and I stayed on the evening of 2 December in 1102 of The Lodge. Upon checking into our room, nothing seemed off initially - until she sat on the bed. Her black leggings were covered in dog hair, and after we checked the sheets they were actually covered in the hair. I called the operator who had the sheets changed immediately and we left the room shortly after to eat in the Cascade. We had originally tried to get a reservation with Chef Dakota, but when we called the number we were told it was booked, but the girl would check and call us back - she didn't. The Cascade was alright, and our waitress Melanie was wonderful, funny, and different - however, the food was just alright my my wife's meatloaf was served luke warm. There was also a woman who had her dog in the bar. It didn't have a service dog vest or any noticeable service dog tags, and the dog kept getting up and walking in circles, obviously anxious from the crowd. On our way back to our room to grab jackets we were informed that Chef Dakota's dinner was not fully booked - but we had already eaten and it was too late. After that we went to see Aiden Sinclair and he was awesome - very gifted gentleman. While waiting for his show to start we grabbed a couple drinks from the bar and your new bartender (can't remember his name, he's from Vegas) was very friendly, professional, and fast despite the crowd. We went on the 9:30 Ghost Tour after that and we spent 50% of the time just trying to understand our guide (Kate). She was speaking entirely too quickly and it was difficult to keep up with her. A couple other couples on that tour said the same thing - too quick. I'm a communications officer for the Air Force at [removed for privacy reasons] and she was even speaking too quickly for me! Anyway, we were going to let it all go and just go to bed but when we finally settled into our room we realized the dog hair must've been on the floor, or in the air or something because my wife's allergies went crazy. Even I ended up with a stuffy nose. She spent the entire night awake, her face red and puffy from allergies, We were going to ask to be moved but decided just to tough it out because it was almost midnight. I've attached a couple pictures for your reference. All in all this was a disappointment - as an avid Stephen King fan myself and a couple that loves history and traveling, we just felt that other than Mr. Sinclair our expectations weren't met whatsoever. The continental breakfast was good and Olivia (we met her in The Lodge) bakes excellent Gingerbread Cookies! Not all was bad but it definitely wasn't worth anywhere near the price. Thank you very much."

The Stanley Hotel is an old hotel. We booked 2 nights. 12/8 and 12/9/17 We were given room 110 A classic king room and we were very disappointed. 1st is we had to walk outside then go back inside to get to our room. Then the room had a quarter of a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. The room was cold and they had a space heater in the room that was missing a wheel so had to use a book to keep it somewhat stable. It didn't put out much heat. The tub was a jetted tub overlay yet when we took showers it creaked every time we moved in the shower. Thought it was going to break or crack . We felt we given the servants quarters for $220 a night. So we used the glasses in the room for drinks and set them on the dresser when we left the next morning. When we got back to the room the dirty glasses were still on dresser with what we had to drink the night before. Extremely disappointed in the stay. At least they had restocked the toilet paper. The food is expensive. Not much to see. The bed was so so. . The carpet in the halls is very worn. Lights in hallway out. Christmas tree in hallway blocking path to walk. The building needs painted. We did the ghost tour and it was good. Wont go back to stay.

We took our family from out of town to see the beautiful Stanley Hotel. We took the tour of the Stanley Hotel and that was very fun filled with information and we also ate where the food was very delicious.

It was a fun experience staying at the historic Stanley hotel! The hotel staff was very nice and helpful! Rooms were nice and clean with comfy beds! The views from the hotel were awesome and it’s a short drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel for a fun experience!

Saw big bad voodoo daddy and danced the night away. They had messons beforehand. Wonderful romantic wvening to dress up like its 1949 and dance away. Beautiful historic hotel. Sat on the veranda and saw the sunrise on the mountains...walked the grounds in the evening. Bed mattress was a little worn...not the best but ok.
