I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel and doing the ghost tour. I had no idea the 2 bedroom condo we stayed in was a condo not owned by the hotel, but, owned by private owners and the hotel rents them. The hotel rents them however, they don't pay attention to whether or not the phones work,... More

My wife and I were staying at another hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. We visited the historic Stanley Hotel. Even though we were not guests at the hotel, we were treated as if we were frequent guests. We decided to eat dinner in the bar area. Our server was named Alexa. My wife, for health reasons, must watch what she... More

First, we really really wanted to like this property, close to Denver we hoped it could be our frequent goto place, sadly disappointed. Booked a last minute special over the phone, never received an email confirmation, phoned back and received a confirm #. Arrived at hotel about 2:30 pm, no record of reserve. Staff took quite awhile to find us... More

Worth the stay. Enjoyed the night tour. Food was very good! Was little warm, but not going to complain to much about that. Rooms are small however what else do you do in them bit sleep? Experience I will never forget.

The Stanley Hotel rides on the laurels of F.O. & Flora Stanley, founders of the hotel. The reputation of this hotel is larger-than-life, but definitely not worth the room rate or hype to stay here. Housekeeping was deplorable. Moldy caulking around the tub, (didn't use the shower-yuck) dirty tile grout, paper and other debris under the bed. (Normally I don't... More

My wife and I were booked at the Stanley Hotel by a couple whom hired us as photographers for their wedding in Estes Park. We stayed at the Stanley for two nights. We travel a lot and - unfortunately - this was a very poor experience for us. The staff was friendly and there is no denying that this hotel... More

We had the second half of our vacation unspoken for and wanted to make it special, so we splurged and booked the Stanley. After all we had heard and read, we figured this would be something special and memorable. Well, it was both of those things, but not at all in the ways we had hoped. Thinking of going there?...

When in Denver, make the trip to Estes Park to see this hotel even if you are not staying there. It's gorgeous with lots of history. I always wanted to see this place and now I get to scratch it off my bucket list. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The night tour was fun and informative. I may come... More

I booked a standard room, which upon arrival turned out to be smaller than expected. Being small is one thing, but it also had a sloping ceiling, which I was painfully reminded off when I tried to get out of bed at night and hit my head. Staff at reception could be more welcoming and friendly. They gave the impression... More

Great location and we had high hopes of this historic hotel. The room was certainly good but the very many visitors took away most if not all of the ambience. The dining room was only ok to be honest despite its claims. The bar was nice though. A very different place the next morning when it was sunny and quiet.... More
