Great hotel to see back through time. I highly recommend the 90 minute historic tour, lots of great information. Be prepared as the floors are creaky and walls are thin so you can hear more than you would in a modern hotel, just expect that is part of the stay.

We went in November of 2011 for my birthday to go ghost hunt with the pros Ghost Adventures! We had a blast meeting the celebrities and communicating with the spirits there, but I won't go too much into that. The day and night before we arrived it snowed so my fiance and I were excited about that since we've never... More

Here is a letter that I wrote about our stay at The "Historic" Stanley Hotel; Everything was a success! You and your staff were so accommodating and nice. The food was sooooooo yummy (I am on a weight loss program and your chef made it very hard to be “a good girl”!) My personal favs were the trout, the chocolate... More

My daughter and I recently attended Amy Bruni's Strange Escapes weekend event at the Stanley Hotel. Everything about the event and the Hotel was better than I expected. The Hotel is charming and meticulously kept. All of the staff was super friendly. The food, the bar, the locale - all beyond compare. If you ever find yourself in the Denver... More

My husband and I were looking for a new experience. Neither of us were drawn to the hotel due to the many stories surrounding paranorm experiences. The Stanley is a beautiful and stately hotel that connects one to the past. We chose to participate in the community dinner Saturday Night at the Lodge. Twenty guests sat at one table and... More

Can't say enough about the wonderful staff and lodging while we were there. We rented one of the condos; loved having the kitchen amenities and extra space. Can't wait until they do another music event like this one.

We were really impressed with the hotel. Our room was on the top floor, so our ceiling was slanted with the roofline. The bathroom was nice and had a jetted tub...nice surprise! The lobby was beautiful and historically accurate. We got a kick out of the old car parked in the lobby. We would definitely stay here again.

Per a groupon advertisement, I decided to check out the historic landmark that is practically in my backyard. Only 3 hours away from my house, I decided on a birthday splurge of hiking and writing, and where better to stay than the Stanley Hotel? The property is well maintained, and boosts a ton of ambience with their large, ornate staircases,... More

This hotel is definitely worth the trip. We chose the Ghost Package with a room on the spooky 4th floor - so much fun! The hotel's history is unique and it's fun to peek around. Our room was nice and warm in April, there's no air conditioning so just leave the window open/cracked if it's too warm. Cozy and clean... More

This hotel is a must on a Colorado - Estes Park stop. Our family of 4 booked 2 rooms (famous 217 and 411). For the room where Stephen King stayed and was inspired to write the Shining - room 217 - we called and specifically requested this. 3 weeks prior to the stay it was available. Room is gorgeous with... More
