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.

Stayed in their new condo location called Aspire for a couple of nights. The location is perfect, very close to Estes Park shopping and the Rocky Mountain National Park gates. Easy walking distance to the Safeway and other shops. We stayed in their two bedroom condo unit, which was very much like you see in the pictures on their website. Although the rooms could be booked separately by different people, when together, they make a nice two bedroom condo with a beautiful, wrap around porch. There were lots of nice touches in the rooms -- 3 big flatscreen TVs on DirecTV. The kitchen was very nice, although very small, having a refrigerator, stove, full sink and dishwasher, along with a Nespresso coffee maker. The 206 unit had a bedroom with a queen bed, bath, living room kitchen and porch. The 207 unit had a king bed and bath (including tub). Together they are a two bedroom condo on the second floor. Outside on the porch, there was a table for dining and a comfy outdoor couch and chairs, situated to look at the mountains! Now for the odd things -- the beds had huge box springs -- they were at least 40 inches off the ground! You needed a stepladder to get in to bed, which is very difficult for the elderly. Fortunately they took the box spring away so we could use the bed. Another odd thing is that there are no closets in the place or the bedrooms. Not even hooks to hang your coat, only wardrobes. You couldn't hang a dress in the room. The showers are not good for the elderly, since they don't have handles to hold onto. However, the baths were really nice, great tile combinations and frameless showers. Water pressure was low or it might have been the shower head. There is an elevator and a nice meeting room downstairs. The service at the Stanley was very uneven. They didn't have any information in the room about checkin/checkout/room service/parking, no information at all. So ask at the front desk, it's possible that they might have someone on duty who knows an answer. ;-) Also, although I booked a bed-n-breakfast package, no one could figure out where breakfast was to be served. Finally they sent us to the Lodge for the continental breakfast, which was nice and certainly adequate. However, the woman in charge of the Lodge breakfast said that they were wrong, we shouldn't be there... but it was okay. Still it was a bit embarassing, so we ate quick and left. I figure they will have things worked out by the summer.

My wife and I live in Denver and have talked about staying at the Stanley for quite some time. The photos accompanying our booking through Trip Advisor indicated we would be staying in the historic portion of the Stanley, so we were surprised at check-in to be assigned to Aspire....the condo-looking, new addition to the Stanley hotel family. Although new, it was devoid of historic, western charm and full of rowdy, mass-tourism style of guests. To their credit, the staff switched us to the Lodge and we had a wonderful stay.

My husband and I have visited the Stanley a few times, and finally spent a couple of nights for my birthday this year. It's a beautiful hotel - built in 1909, they have kept the decor updated, but with a nod to the past. We saw the staff working on repairs of some sort every day. I can't imagine the upkeep! The hotel was clean and comfortable; the staff very accommodating and friendly. If you want to do the evening ghost tour, make sure to book early - especially on the weekend. The bar was quite expensive, but had great service. We didn't see or hear anything unusual, but had a very odd experience with the water temperature in the shower - hot/cold every few seconds every time I took a shower. My husband had no issues whatsoever. He says it's the lamest ghost story every, but it's all I've got.

I was expecting ghost hunting and a fright, but instead I got much more. We had a nice room on the 4th floor and it was so nice. I love the grounds and the surrounding area. It had snowed the day before so we spent more time at the hotel than expected and were glad. The bar is fun, and all over entertainment. Loved the whole experience. Very historical, but no ghosts...

We went in to the Whiskey Bar for a drink after a long day of hiking, and were amazed at both the wonderful cocktails, and truly one of the most comprehensive Scotch menus i have ever seen. The drinks were perfectly served, and we ended up trying several things, and then staying for dinner, as the bar food was quite good. The Stanley is a beautiful place to wander around and see, but the experience was so much more rewarding with truly outstanding and unique beverages to end the evening.
