We did the Stanley tour with Scary Mary. The tour was very informative and we also had a great time. Highly recommend doing this if you're in the Estes Park area. Also, if you love "The Shining" or "Dumb and Dumber" you will recognize the place.

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

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!
