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.

Traveled from the Midwest for 20th anniversary. Booked three nights at the main hotel. Expensive, $350 plus per night, and don't expect amenities in your small, king deluxe room - no fridge, no microwave, no full length mirror, and whirlpool tub for one, is an iron but no ironing board. The view was nice though. Eat in town at Claire's. It's within walking distance and very good and reasonably priced. We paid $50 for breakfast the first morning at the hotel, poor service and food was cold. Cool for one night, cool hotel to explore. Not super quiet, but go expecting a creaky old hotel with some mystery in the air. Outbuildings are new and up to date. Don't plan to return, but still glad we had the experience. Seriously, one night is enough.

We scheduled our trip to coincide with my husband's 65th birthday. Due to scheduling conflicts with our work, we weren't able to stay any longer than three nights, but it was wonderful, nonetheless. We stayed in one of the "haunted" rooms in early spring and have absolutely no complaints about the room, it's location in the hotel, or the service. I will say, though, that since it was on the 4th floor, I wouldn't necessarily want to spend a lot of time in the room during the day in the warmer seasons. Were it not for the oscillating, standing fan that was provided with the room, there would have been several times during our three-day stay that it would have been stuffy and uncomfortable. The evenings were perfect, though, with the windows open. That being said, we had a wonderful time at the Stanley. The hotel itself is stunning and the love and care that has gone into its restoration and upkeep were obvious to us. One thing that I loved as much as sitting in front of one of the gorgeous large, heavy wooden mantled fireplaces in the lobby was the sense of history and past lives that enveloped us any time we were even near the buildings, not to mention strolling the hallways and other guest accessible areas inside. A wealth of framed period photos, antique furniture pieces, and artifacts from the Stanley's past added much appreciated visualizations of this grand hotel from "back in the day." Despite all the history and "old stuff" that absolutely saturates the hotel, the old lady continues to maintain a sense of fun and adventure for anyone willing to suspend their normal everyday concerns and allow themselves to be caught up in the past of this beautiful and serene retreat. And yes, echoes of the past manifest themselves in a surprising variety of ways that help to make this place as popular and mysterious as it is. The staff, service, and meals offered at the Cascades restaurant were top-notch and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Not being drinkers ourselves, we each still had a birthday whiskey shot that was carefully selected for us by one of the sweetest bar tenders we've met. It was a first for me, and yes, my eyes watered...a lot. We won't soon forget the warmth and laughter we shared with our funny and gracious hosts.

I've always wanted to see this place ever since I saw the movie. It's as beautiful as I imagined it would be. Unfortunately, I did not stay at the hotel but still enjoyed my visit. The grounds are well kept and the inside is grand! I'm glad I finally got to see it. I was not disappointed..

Staying for a week in Estes Park, we were delighted to discover that the Stanley Hotel was the hotel from the book/movie "The Shining", so we planned to see it. It was a beautiful hotel with a grand staircase and huge rooms. I had read the book and had seen the movie many years before, so I was visualizing everything that went on. We walked around as much as we could, enjoyed the antique cars that were on display, and went into the gift shop. We took many pictures inside as well as outside, and it was a great visit! I'm not sure if I would want to stay there because I would be too scared.
