This is truly a beautiful hotel in a stunning location. It's historic architecture and lobby are a genuine pleasure. The bar is worth a visit alone. However, the room we were originally assigned was a shoebox and into this we were expected to fit a fold up bed for our 11 year old son. This made the room totally unfeasible... More

Hello and thank you for your email. As you pointed out, our Classic Rooms are some of the smaller rooms in the main building and ideal for 1-2 people. However, we do feature larger rooms that can accommodate additional people for the next time you stay in Estes Park. We are truly sorry for your experience with the pool and... More

As a kid in the 80s I visited the Stanley several times, including for a Christmas party in one of the front ballrooms. Later my wife and I were engaged at the Stanley. Moving forward about 15 years, and after spending a week camping and driving Jeep trails, I decide we'd spend our last night in the Rockies at the... More

Stayed for two nights in the Lodge. Nicer rooms, good breakfast and afternoon tea incl. Tips:: ask for a corner room, better airflow to cool the room. Ask for the loung menu and have dinner on the veranda. Stay away from first floor rooms, they are too close to parking. Only negatives: the pool is ice cold and the rooms... More

There is NO air conditioning and the price of the room and dinner were WAY TOO MUCH to spend on what you get. I was so excited to stay here - with all the ghost stories and such. The look of the hotel fits the bill and the view off the porch really is great. Here are my biggest complaints... More

We just stayed at the Stanley hotel and it was wonderful. Based on previous reviews we were aware of the lack of a/c (which is also mentioned on their website) but even though it was August it was very cool each night. The second night we even closed the windows because it was cold in the room. We had anamazing... More

We stayed in a "haunted" room. Absolutely nothing "haunted" occurred, but there was plenty of annoyances from the morons standing outside our room all night going "I have a recorder. If you want to communicate speak into this. Make this light flash red to show your presence". I don't know if the nimrods got any ghosts but they probably got... More

We were very excited to visit the Stanley Hotel and go on a ghost tour. We bought tickets for the "Ghost and History Tour" for 15 dollars a ticket. They really should not advertise this tour as a "ghost" tour. It was 90 minutes of mostly historical information. Most of which was as boring as the change in paint colors... More

We travel to Estes Park every summer to retrieve our daughter from summer camp. We have driven by The Stanley many times and decided to give it a try this summer for 3 nights. Disappointments: No water or complimentary coffee in the rooms - even budget hotels offer this. No a/c - only ceiling fans and operating windows, though it... More

Stayed 2 nights in July at the Stanley in the Manor. The rooms were newly renovated, so were clean and fresh, a little on the small side and no refrigerators, or ac, so it can be hot in the summer since there was not a breeze on the side out room (314) was on.
