My husband and I had been talking about staying here for along time but were unable to do so until his vacation right before Christmas 2012. We made our reservations two days before our stay and we did not think the price was an issue taking into consideration what we heard and read about hotel. When we arrived at the... More

We stayed at the Stanley this past weekend and I was really looking forward to it. The obvious Hollywood and Historic nostalgia were attracting and they maintained that image very well. The hotel is in great shape (the entry floors were curing during our stay so the lobby was empty but that is understandable), but it's an old hotel, so... More

We had a great time. Everyone was super friendly. We ordered room service and the food was quick and exceptional! :) Exploring it was a lot of. And they give you a lot of freedom to explore. Banquet rooms are left open. You can peek behind the stage and see all kinds of props. We ran into a lot of... More

I have stayed at the Stanley three times, in recent years. In reading the reviews and expectations, I wanted to clear some things up. This hotel is not about the food *although I did love the fajitas served in the bar), amenities (nice fire is usually going in the lobby), accommodations (the rooms can be small but quirky and fun)...

Great Hotel, great service, great views, amazing amenities. A fabulous place to stay and a wonderful place to be. The most excellent "continental" breakfast I've ever had, complete with all sorts of delicious fancy foods and coffee (regular and decaf) cranberry and orange juices, and a HUGE selection of Two Leaves tea :) All around excellent hotel. Also, a sculpture... More

Thank you for your recent vist, I couldn't agree more with you regarding Midge's breakfast in the Lodge! Also, the first sculpture from the garden was sold this week by the artist, and $800 was donated to the humane society (that is the artist's choice). It was very exciting for us! We hope to see you again soon! More

We stayed here during a recent visit to Estes Park (wife's birthday). We've seen it several times while visiting Rocky Mountain National Park and decided to make a visit. The property is a nice old Hotel, but nothing was exceptional. The TV would not go into closed caption (I am deaf) and we complained the next morning. They did fix... More

Thank you for your visit and your feedback. I am glad your time here was enjoyable and you were able to visit the beautiful park. Although we would love to play the mini-series, it is very difficult as it is a three disc set and not able to loop. (I actually prefer the mini-series) Hopefully, we will be fortunate to... More

The Stanley Hotel is a wonderful, 100+ year old hotel located centrally in Estes Park and a 15 minute drive from Rocky Mountain National Park. The Stanley was designed as a more refined destination in an area dotted with many rustic lodges and inns. The Stanley is a beautiful property. The lobbies of both the main hotel and the lodge...

Our checkin was easy with no problems, we were even allowed to check in early. January is extremely slow in Estes Park so there was nearly no one there. It was fine with me, I didn't go there to be around crowds of people anyway. We stayed 2 nights in The Lodge, which is the building next to the main... More

This place has so much potential that it does not live up to. A few suggestions: 1) the lobby is beautiful, rustic, dim and freezing cold. Why on earth is there not a big fire burning in the lobby? I've never been to a hotel that under capitalizes on its ambiance more than The Stanley. 2) no room service and... More

The Hotel is beautiful, the surrounding areas are breathtaking. The service at the Hotel is very good and the Christmas dinner they serve is fantastic. My family and I had the entire presidential suite for Christmas and the staff went out of their way to make this a very memorable Christmas
