It is really just one car. The hotel is swamped with tourists who are just visiting and they charged $10 for parking. The bar was pretty with a stamped copper ceiling and a unique railing but the service was awful. It might be worth it in the off season, though.

The Stanley Steam Car Museum is not actually a museum. You can go on a tour of The Stanley Hotel and see a Stanley Steamer in the front lobby and the guides are very knowledgeable in the history of F. O. Stanley, the building of The Stanley Hotel, events held at the hotel and, of course, the tour would not... More

My son an I were impressed with the history on the Stanley Steamer. We had an excellent and knowledgeable guide that made the tour interesting. Would recommend to anyone interested in the history and workings of the steam automobile.

What a building! Back on Long Island, there are many examples from this time period on the North Shore. Anyone who loves traditional hardwood designs and ornate moldings will be in heaven. Oh, the steam car was very interesting to my husband...

We took a tour with Jeremy. It was just the two of us and him. It was fabulous, very informative...and we had some "local" visitors give us a little spook.

We took the historic tour of the hotel. There was a lot of history on he family that built the hotel and some background information but we did not really see much that we could not have seen on our own. That said, the hotel itself was beautiful and some of the artifacts inside (especially the Stanley Steamer) were very... More

We've been here several times. Always enjoy coming back. It's a wonderful place to visit. The museum and the ghost tour are lots of fun It's a must to go to the bar & sample one of the superb whiskey offerings. They have one of the best stock bars in Colorado

This was a big disappointment to the 8 of us that went. The tour takes you in store rooms and then we sat in a room waiting for a door to shut...just nonsense. We did go see the OUTSIDE of room 237. HOWEVER that is wrong ... Steven King used room 217 in his series. We also saw the faucet... More

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
