I purchased a Groupon to stay at the Stanley Hotel. I'm not sure how reduced our price was compared to the regular price, but we paid $100 for a one night stay that included a $15 voucher for the Steamers Cafe. Our room was lovely and comfortable with an incredible view of the mountains. I was impressed with how warm... More

You're better off just coming to see the hotel, take some pictures and then stay somewhere else. The front desk staff seemed very unprepared (may be a seasonal thing). The front desk blondie rolled her eyes when I asked if it's possible to check in early. The rooms are small (which I knew already). You'll see random tourists wondering the... More

We stayed in The Lodge of The Stanley Hotel. The Lodge is a newly renovated building which was formerly known as The Manor, where the bachelors stayed during the early days of The Stanley. To me, it had similar charm to that of the main Hotel. Our room was decorated nicely with some unique pieces of furniture, old photos and... More

Thank you for your recent visit to our hotel, I am happy that you had an overall enjoyable visit, but disappointed to hear the housekeeping issues. I have shared your comments appropriately with our staff so that we improve our service and product. We are still doing the $3 specials this weekend if you'd like to return! Thank you again. More

My husband and I stayed one night during an early spring week on a Living Social deal. It's a grand hotel from a bygone era and a signature of Estes Park, gateway to stunning Rocky Mt National Park. It's a lovely building, with a stately first floor and a perfect place to find a magic nook for early-morning insomniac reading.... More

As a local Estes Park resident and a member of BACers, (the local booster club for our middle school and high school sports), I am often surprised by the support we get from our local merchants. The Stanley Hotel was no exception to this rule and also went way above and beyond. The professional staff, the beautiful McGregor room, the... More

First let me say that I enjoyed my stay at The Stanley and would return. That said, for such a beautiful property, it needs a bit more attention to detail to live up to its potential. Towels are thin and, if it says on the reservation that 4 people are staying, then have 4 towels. There are 4 coffee pouches... More

Amazing food. One of the best meals I have ever had. Had the flash fried chilli's as an app. And whiskey for our drink. The bar tender appeared knowledgable. Gave good info on the wine we ordered. The main course was amazing. Had the chicken and it was so good. Sounds like next time we will need to stay here.... More

Love being surrounded by history! The room had a historical feel and great pictures in the rooms. Took a ghost/historical tour and got to go in rooms and buildings usually off limits. The staff all very friendly and helpful. It was an amazing experience, will for sure go again!
