This is a wonderful hotel and the museum tour is a must do. It takes you thru the basement and to the rooms of the shining. The Stanley steamer and sever versions are part of the tour it was fun and definitely worth it

As a history buff and movie buff, I've wanted to go to the Stanley for years. It didn't disappoint. Other reviewers are saying they were charged $5 for parking. However, my wife and I stopped by there twice and we weren't charged at all on either visit. Either way, we would have gladly paid for the $5. It's an awesome... More

My husband and I went on the 9:30pm ghost tour at The Stanley Hotel. Needless to say, we were there for 3 hours because we were the last tour! We had some amazing experiences, but I don't want to give anything away. This is totally worth checking out!

Yes we were surprised about the parking fee, but since we decided to spend the day here, eat,take the history tour, and view the museum, the fee went toward our purposes. We did almost walk away from the dining room when asked if we had a reservation. (the room was empty.) The hostess seated us anyway. In fact, everyone was... More

we were just there on a family vacation. We thought it would be nice to go into the Stanley Hotel for a cocktail and get the kids some ice cream. The guy at the gate charges five bucks for parking. some people may call me cheap. But I have principles. I'm not going to pay $5 for parking when im... More

We were interested in checking out the lobby of the Stanley Hotel, and perhaps acquiring a souvenir, but were surprised that the hotel is charging $ to park in their lot. So, they lost potential customers, and we settled for a photo from the road. They are really milking their "fame" for all it's worth!

I had fun visiting the museum. I wish there was more of a flow on where to look at things, but overall it was a great experience. It would be more for pre-teen to adults than little ones.

Had a blast with our seventeen year old. He wants to find and restore an old steamer like they have in the hotel lobby. Even if you do not stay at the hotel, it is a great place to go to.

What can you say other than it's The Stanley! Everything about this place is first class. If you skip this while in Estes you have made a HUGE mistake! By far the best place to visit, other than the outdoors that Estes provides.
