We had a wonderful getaway for the night from Denver on the 6th. easy drive and great weather. Checked in and we ended up being in 219 right next door to where Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining. We had a great dinner at the Whiskey Bar and snuggled in for the night watching The Shining. Next day... More

A wonderful and historic hotel with beautiful views. The hotel was decorated for Christmas and very busy with a wedding and company party. The food and service were excellent by both the company party buffet and the next morning at the restaurant for breakfast. Laurel and Patrick were very attentive to our food sensitivities and did their best to get... More

You will appreciate your small standard room after you take the hotel history tour. Much of the decor is attributed to Stephen King as he had the place appointed in time period wall paper and furnishings after he began his work on The Shining in room 217. The rooms could use a little updating but it might take away from... More

We stayed in The Lodge where the innkeeper accommodated all our needs. Convenient complimentary breakfast was perfect. The restaurant in the hotel had delicious dishes, and helpful waitresses. Sara at the Amethyst spa was fantastic. It's a short walk down the hill to a grocery/liquor store, fast food, and quaint shops of Estes Park. The shuttle buses come right to... More

Small rooms, not air conditioning, tours constantly going through the main hotel. the Lodge at the Stanley needs a tremendous amount of work to live up to it's publications. It really needs to update and replace the elevator that is always out.

We planned a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park after Thanksgiving and at the last minute decided to spend the night in Estes Park. We booked a room at the Stanley Hotel and are happy we did so. Our experience from check in to check out could not have been better. We were there for the annual Christmas parade, which... More

Was nice but old and no air conditioning in main building. I realize its the Rockies but it gets warm in the summer. There are nicer options with working air. The food was expensive and the staff was not helpful with luggage.

We recently spent several nights at the condos at Stanley Hotel, right before Halloween. Lots of costume parties, The Shining has a link here and there is a story of a ghost still wondering about. Great accommodations, great location (we had elk walk through the front yard). Staff was real good. We ate at the hotel. Everything was just wonderful.... More

I would totally recommend a stay at the Stanley Hotel. The staff is very willing to help and the place is gorgeous with amazing views. They allow one dog under 50 lbs, which is really helpful for those of us who like to travel with our pets at times. It's close to town, so walking to dining and shopping is... More
