My family and I stayed at the Stanley Hotel over Thanksgiving break. The historic character of the century-old hotel was wonderful, yet our room was nicely updated with new furnishings and bathroom. Minor note- why have a large flat-screen tv but not have it in HD? Oh well- we didn't watch it except for some of the Shining. However, while... More

My wife and I stayed for a night and had dinner. The view from our room, particularly the sunrise was beautiful and the "ghost" tour we took was fun and full of history

While the stanley is charming on the outside, it has a lot of short comings. Clearly the focus is on the history and the "hauntings", not so much on customer satisfaction. We paid(months in advance) and requested the main hotel but we were but in the Manor house off to the side with very poor accommodations. We heard every sound... More

We have stayed at the Stanley several times, and we love it. Of course, it is the hotel that inspired Stephen King's "The Shining", but its' history is more complex than that alone. Mr. Stanley was a very bright guy that invented several things, including the Stanley Steamer and the predecessor to Kodak film. Make sure and take both the... More

What a Grand Hotel.. You must do the Ghost History Tour since this is a Haunted Hotel and has so much history and star quality. The renovation of this hotel really shows well , our room was small but cozy with creaky floors and all.. Our next favorite experience was Jimmy(from Baltimore) as our Bartender. For being so young he... More

We just went for one night on November 22, 2011. The hotel and room was excellent and very clean. We stayed in room 208 with two queen beds. The room played the original Shining movie 24/7 with Jack Nicholson. Dinner was amazing but very expensive. Service was a bit slow. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The ghost tour... More

We purposely reserved at the Stanley for Thanksgiving. They provide an extensive buffet with everything from salads, main courses (turkey,prime rib,seafood,beef tenderloin), sides and desserts. The smell of the food cooking the day before and morning of took me back to my childhood days of smelling the turkey cook before I got out of bed. We met up with friends... More

While I worked an assignment in Colorado my best friend came out for a visit. I took her to the Stanley Hotel for her birthday. What a delightful old hotel! The staff was always helpful and friendly.

The staff was excellent and very helpful but the hotel is old and our room was very small andd very hot ( even though it was snowing). The stay was pleasant but be aware of what you are getting for your money.
