I had only seen the Stanley on television and read about online and in the paper. Those articles do not do it justice. I arrived and it was amazing. Sitting atop a hill with amazing views of the Rockies was breathtaking. Seeing elk roam the grounds and other wildlife was incredible. I was there as part of the Darkness Radio... More

The history surrounding this hotel is incredibly interesting and the ghost tour is an absolute must. Ask for "Scary Mary" and you will have a great time. The stories of people having paranormal experiences including Stephen King "The Shining" and Jim Carey "Dumb and dumber" are great. Step back in time to see the workmanship and thought process of the... More

If you like a B&B experience, try the Lodge at the Stanley Hotel. It's a perfect overnight getaway - the Lodge is the old manor house for the hotel, newly restored. Beautiful, comfortable, quiet, with incredible homemade goodies from the innkeeper for breakfast.

Thank you for spending the weekend with us! Our Lodge does have great ambience, and Midge, our innkeeper does a fabulous job! She provides a healthy, yet tasty spread! We certainly appreciate your business, thank you! More

Well I must start by saying the Stanley Hotel is a must even though I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. The Hotel grounds are so beautiful and the step back in time to a luxury hotel of the early 1900's is fun. The scary edge that it has about being possibly haunted is fun as well. The rooms... More

Really fun hotel. Great atmosphere, especially if you are interesting in the ghostly tales of the hotel. Creates a great vibe of comraderie among the guests. And there are few places as pretty as Estes Park.

When making reservations ask for Janette Aragon. Janette helped us arrange reservations for a large party and simply did a super job! In arranging this event, I had to deal with several people at the Stanley, Janette was simply the best of all the individuals and most professional. She simply shined!

Janette is a great pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond when it comes to guest service! She actually won our internal Cirque du Soleil contest for delivering exceptional guest service! I have shared your very kind words with her! Thank you! More

We paid over $300 for a deluxe king room on the second floor at the main hotel and while the hotel is beautiful from the outside, the room was disappointing. We booked a room with a "jacuzzi" for an extra $80 only to find out that it was a regular tub with jacuzzi jets. (When I complained the woman at... More

We stayed in a classic queen room on the 4th floor of the main hotel, room was quite small with no coffee making facilities or fridge but did have a nice outlook to the side. Parking is either at the front or back of the hotel and can be a bit of a trudge if you have a lot of... More

The Lodge at the Stanley hotel is the place to stay if you are planning a trip to Estes Park. It has been completely redone.

The Stanley was highly recommended to me, and I frankly had no idea what to expect. I knew it was beautiful, supposedly haunted, but that's all I knew going in. Walking up the stairs into the lobby takes your breath away. It is wonderful that this is an historically preserved building, as it is typical of construction that is not... More
