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.

I went to Stanley Hotel for a Historical Tour, and spent the whole day in the hotel. The hotel is so charming and beautiful, with a Victorian decoration. I didn't have the change to know better the bedrooms, but I could see some of them inside (including the classic 217), they seem very cozy and they have a beautiful view of the mountains. Consider making the tours, which are very interesting with a nice discount for guests. Also, the hotel has some events and one of the most interesting in my opinion is the Culinary Journey - a chef is invited, and it is possible to have the different courses and pairing the chef prepares for the event. Also, the hotel is only 5 miles from the Rocky Mountains National Park, which is a beautiful place to visit as well. I'm looking forward to stay in the hotel at least a weekend!

breathtaking views and location, but the rooms are not well cleaned and service was not provided daily. i would suggest having water bottles offered at check in or in the rooms. i would also suggest golf carts be provided to ride the guests over to the other hotels that are not nearby. the walk up the hill is tough.

Arrived Sunday for a 4 night stay. The main hotel is undergoing installation of new siding (have to do it sometime) so they ask that you use the side entrance off the parking lot to enter. The front porch was open when we were there. We are staying in The Lodge building next door. Lovely place and the bedrooms and bed are comfortable. They do not offer food and beverage service at this building beyond a continental breakfast so be forewarned if you are staying there. The bar was great about giving us wine glasses and a bucket to use and return. The front desk is attentive but mildly overwhelmed it seems. Happy to help but a little forgetful when you ask for something. The Cascade restaurant on site has great service and the food was very good. Would suggest making dinner reservations if you want to eat before 7:30 Some tips: there is parking behind the bldgs which is not mentioned when you drive up or by the front desk when you check in The little shops inside the hotel, including the gift shop, sre separate entities and accept cash or charge only. No room charge available There are steps leading up to the entrances of the hotel and the lodge so you will need to carry yoyr bags up them before you get to an elevator. There is no bell hop service that I saw.

We stayed one night at the Stanley, mainly because I've always wanted to stay there and do a ghost tour. Our room was spacious and clean (313) and was a corner room so we had two windows for a cross-breeze since it was a warm evening. The ghost tour was fun (even though we didn't have any paranormal experiences) and the tour guide was very informative about the hotel. The inside of the hotel is beautiful and the staff is helpful. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but the prices are on the higher side. The lobby and public areas were very busy when we checked in around 3 pm, I think due to the number of people who visit the hotel just for it's tours. It quieted down around 8-9 pm.
