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 stayed one night for the Shining Ball. First, let me say, the hotel is a lovely historic place with great views. Bedding comfy. Stayed in a Deluxe King room which was nice but really nothing special. For the price, I think there should be more in-room amenities...bottled water would be nice, maybe less chintzy decor? I just felt like I could have been in a $100 room at another hotel for what was offered. As for the Shining Ball, I was really looking forward to it but for the money spent, again, nothing special. Food average. Drinks expensive. Costume contest and group photo very disorganized. Emcee not great. Nothing resembling The Shining for decor. In fact, decor seemed an afterthought. Band was very good but I think a pop cover band would have better suited. Not same sound all night. Also, maybe some scary booths or other events instead of just standing around? As I said, I wanted The Shining! More haunted vibe would have been better. Pricey standing. Overall trip a bit of a let down...especially for what is charged. Make me feel welcome, special, spooked or pampered. Something!

This is the third Halloween venue I have attended at the Stanley. The quality of judges and appetizers were so poor this year that I don't think I will ever attend or recommend this event again! The band was live but not the best choice for this event. Went to the lounge during the event and got the same poor service! Very disappointed because we live so close, Please upgrade your Shining Ball or just eliminate!

Driving up to the hotel I was amazed! In awe of how beautiful the crisp white hotel and how it stood out against the clear blue skies! The gardens (flowers, trees, plants, maze, waterfall and sculptures) are just gorgeous, I could sit out there all day and just take in the surrounding wonders of nature (Estes park and the Rockies). It looks like a fab place for a wedding. The hotel itself, although I didn't stay overnight, was very busy with the various tours going on and the hustle & bustle of tourists visiting (fans of The Shining etc). There's a lovely bar, terrace and gift shop, plus there's a fortune teller. Didn't use the restaurant- went for picnics in the Rocky Mountain national park instead. Fun to visit but doubt I'd want to stay overnight.

What a great experience! The Stanley is rich in history and ruggedly grand! The staff is exceptional. Sophie both checked us in and out and was so very friendly and accommodating. We arrived early. Sophie took our telephone number and called us as soon as our room had been cleaned and was ready. I highly recommend a visit to this historical and fun hotel!

room was beautiful as was the view- room was hot... but well ventilated with massive ceiling fan . front desk staff were very pleasant and sweet (remembered me next morning - name and all!lol) i was in the room next to the ice machine and it was STILL QUIET! very pleasant stay :-) only thing i would change is the price point - rooms could use some upkeep and refreshing if they want to charge 300+ a night
