“Good time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012 via mobile

The staff was a little stuffy and its a little pricy but overall a great experience. Very vintage and sometimes enjoyably creepy. The shining plays 24/7 which awesome. I've been there twice.

Stayed May 2011

This historic hotel is a must see for anyone visiting Estes Park, Colorado - the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. There is even an old Stanley Steamer car in the lobby! Definitely sign up for the ghost tour - it is well worth it! Dinner in their restaurant after the tour was very delicious and it is nice to see elk on the hotel's property! You will spend several delightful hours doing something unique by your visit. Definitely turn on your Ghost Radar app while visiting - you may encounter some strange experiences! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Did not stay at the hotel - but took the ghost tour and ate lunch in the restaurant - both excellent...

My husband and I visited the Stanley Hotel during the weekend of April 13th-16th, 2012. We were there for a large event and the hotel was full. We ended up staying in the Manor House which is just steps from the main hotel. Our room, 1309, was a small suite. The living room area was nice with a sofa, chair and large flat screen tv. The bedroom had a king sized bed and another large flat screen tv. The bedroom was on the smaller side but the extra space in the living room made up for it. My only real issue was with the bathroom. It was very small which didn't bother me but the lighting was completley inadequate. A small desk or vanity with a mirror added to the living room would make a big difference.

Most of the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The only excetion were the young women working in Steamers Cafe who on two separate occasions seemed to be bothered that they had to wait on us. We also overheard them making comments regarding the event and some of the guests and speakers which probably should have been saved until they were in private.

We didn't eat at the hotel because the menu didn't appeal to us and the prices seemed a but high but it was nice to have th option if we chose to stay in. The bar is well stocked and a nice place to relax with a drink.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the beautiful and historic Stanley Hotel and the ghost stories made it all the more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend staying there a least once for the experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains. If you're more adventurous, request a haunted room...

We had a great getaway weekend, enjoyed a ghost tour and learned a lot of history about the 100 year old hotel. In spite of a wedding happening as we checked in, our registration went smoothly, and the festivities did not interfere with our experience. Our hotel room was clean and well cared for. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was helpful and courteous. I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a quality experience.

Room Tip: Haunted rooms 212, 428, 401 and 407 may or may not produce chilling experiences.

We did not stay at the Stanley Hotel, but rather spent a great deal of time there on the tours and enjoying dinner (at Cascades). The tour staff are wonderful and knowledgeable about the history of the hotel and the surrounding areas. We may or may not have seen a ghost, but felt like we were doing something strange and unusual which made our trip fun.

The views from the hotel, especially the restaurant, are top notch. The interiors are beautiful and full of history. Great location close to everything you need. We will definitely return and hopefully stay over in some of the more haunted rooms, like 217 or 414 (?).

Room Tip: For haunted spaces, the second floor room 217 is famous; you can hear the rumblings of children runn...
