This stop was a spur of the moment idea on our trip to Boulder. This hotel sits next to the Rocky Mountains and it really doesn't get better than that. This place does cost money, except to walk inside the lobby and gift shop. There are tours galore at this place, but be prepared to pay - I didn't. There... More

This is an awesome historic hotel. My wide and I wife stopped by on our road trip and loved it. We couldn't get on a tour because they were all full but Daniel at the front desk gave us a quick history lesson that was great. It's pretty busy in the summer so reservations are definitely recommended for pretty much... More

During the day they do tours of the hotel. Looks like there is a tour every 15 to 20 min all day. I was expecting something a little more towards the upper end of the spectrum and instead is felt like a tourist attraction instead of an hotel. Not a lot of amenities and if you want dinner in the... More

First off, Estes Park is a summer town, there is no such thing as quiet or sparsely populated areas during the summer months. We have stayed at the Stanley in summer, winter, and fall and there is a huge difference from season to season. The rooms are historical, which adds to the stay. The lobby is beautiful, and there is... More

We had a room on 3rd floor in the lodge. Elevator was not working, so we had to lig our bags up the stairs ourselves..no bellhop either. Sofa bed was not made up, no ac, and floor fan sounded like a jet engine. Room had no cross breeze. Bathroom was very well done, and very attractive. We had prepaid the... More

Well I always wanted to stay at the hotel as a student in college in Colorado but never could afford it. Forty years later I planned our national park tour with a three night stay at the Stanley which we looked forward to very much. The hotel was a little expensive so I thought it would sort out the folks... More

My best bit of advice for anyone looking to stay at the Stanley is NOT TO STAY IN THE SUMMER! As other people have written, there is no air conditioning. The windows open, but we happened to be on a side of the hotel that got no breeze or air circulation whatsoever. The thermostat for the heater was over 90... More

First, yes, there is no A/C but hardly a cause for the amount of wailing in some reviews as temps are in low 80s (at most) with no humidity during the day and low 60s or high 50s at night. Being from the South, it was very pleasant. We had good service (even checked in early) by both hotel and... More

I stay at historic hotels frequently and don't mind the quirks (e.g., in the Stanley's case: no A/C, bathroom doors that don't close properly, among others). But the service at the Stanley is absolutely horrendous, which was particularly frustrating during our stay given the expensive rates for peak season. Some examples: (1) We arrived at 3:45 for 4:00 check-in, but... More

My husband and I stayed at the Stanley Hotel in July, using a gift certificate given to us by friends. At check in, the gift certificate was taken from us. At check out, the gift certificate was no where to be found, and the clerk charged us the full price of the room. The clerk did correct this mistake (without... More
