We had a brief stay at the stately Stanley Hotel, a large historic hotel overlooking the town of Estes Park. The interior features a lot of dark wood and period effects that transport you to old Colorado. We received attentive service at the front desk but were less than thrilled with the dining service. One night at the bar we... More

From the Drive through the Mountain pass, the tour on the hotel's historic property, to the hike up the 14er in their backyard, Stanley is absolutely one of the best easily accessible, affordable, and entertaining authentic historical and geological experiences Colorado can offer which accommodates all levels of physical abilities and age groups without discrimination.

Great tour, I wish I stayed overnight though. Ryan was goofy yet incredibly entertaining. Your very factual yet a twist of spookiness. Takes you to all the hotspots ghost busters. Really neat grounds too (watch out for the elk)

Ryan- quirky- yes...but fantastic! He is a very personable gentleman and certainly provides an entertaining tour. We are so pleased to have him apart of our team- his passion and genuine care for all of our guests is amazing. You are correct about the elk- be careful! Thank you for your business! More

We stayed at the Lodge at The Stanley for a long weekend, and were very happy with our room. The Lodge rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable and the common areas were cozy. Breakfast, as well as the afternoon tea and cookies, was delicious, and a great preparation for a long day of hiking. Staying at the Lodge... More

The Lodge is definitely a gem, and Midge our innkeeper is fantastic! You are correct that the Lodge is more exclusive and does not have any of the foot traffic that the hotel supports. I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback and hope that we can play your host again in the near future! More

Janette Aragon deserves recognition for her excellent customer service / prompt response and follow up of our initially negative experience on 9/24/12. We received no info, nor return call from repeated phone messgaes to the Tour Desk. We arrived at the hotel just as a preferred 11:00 (filled) tour started. Upon hearing of our issues, Jeanette reimbursed our parking, bought... More

Janette is a fantastic employee and we are very fortunate to have her on our staff. While disappointed to hear of our initial shortcomings, I am more pleased that she was able to turn the situation into a positive and memorable one! Thank you for visiting! More

My husband and I are paranormal investigators and chose The Stanley Hotel for our honeymoon. We stayed in a standard room for three nights and a “haunted” or “active” room (401) one night (the “active” rooms are more expensive than standard rooms). This is a beautiful hotel, with beautiful views. The hotel offers tours, covering the haunted areas of the... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Stanley. Typical of these old hotels, the room was very small, the bath room was a tight fit, no TV and no AC. In addition to being very small, our room had dormer windows and an extremely slanted ceiling. Thankfully, my wife is 5'3" tall and I'm only 5'8" tall. Any... More

Thank you for your recent stay- we really appreciate your business. Judging your comments, you were staying on the fourth floor, and due to the construction of the building are a little smaller with slanted ceilings. I am pleased that you had an enjoyable experienc in our restaurant and that our staff was accomodating. Thank you for your feedback. More

We stayed for five weeknights at the end of September for our honeymoon and were delighted. The check-in process was a little dicey (the time our room was supposed to be ready kept changing) but that was a very minor issue really. We stayed in room 413 (a deluxe king mountain view room) and i can't recommend that room enough... More

We've been to Estes Park several times, as a day trip. For our first stay there, there was no other place to choose but The Stanley. It lived up to every expectation. Such a beautiful property, truly breathtaking. The outside is very well-maintained, with gardens, sculptures and fountains. There is no other word for the views except stunning. Inside is... More
