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 Event so I did have a group discount, but I was put in a King Suite which I find amazing.
I ate at the bar every night and there were two people, Grace and Jimmy, who were absolutely amazing. They were super nice, helpful and had amazing customer service skills. They listened to me when I explained how getting here was scary because of rental car issues, and how it was awesome to go on two different ghost investigations and get evidence.
My room was amazing, I loved how antique it was while still having nice amenities like a flat screen, wifi and a jacuzzi tub. My only complaint is the water wasn't warm enough to use the jacuzzi tub. I don't know if that was just with my room or not, but that can be annoying.
Also, watch out for the elevator buttons on the third floor. It will give you a mean shock every single time. I don't know if it's wiring or static electricity, but I finally just started taking the stairs to avoid it.
But seriously, go. You will have a blast and it's a memory that will last for ages. It's been a week for me and I'm still amazed and talking about it.
