We have been to the Stanley many times for ghost tours...etc. But this was our first time staying there. It was amazing. We booked a double queen room and when we arrived they upgraded us to a two room suite. There were two queen beds in one room and a sofa and chairs in the other room. The view was of the courtyard and the mountains. The room was gorgeous. There were nice ceiling fans. The bathroom was large...but did lack counter space.
All of the staff was amazing. Breakfast was great. We also went on another ghost tour.
The only negative was the heat. But I knew the Stanley was not air conditioned..and we picked a night when there was an unusual heat wave. SO we were really hot... There were also a few bugs...but I attribute that to having the windows open and the screens not totally fitting. There was a fan in the closet...but we did not see it until morning.
We had room 301. IT was right under 401...which is one of the supposedly more haunted rooms. At around 1:30a.m. we heard what sounded like a basketball being bounced. My daughter asked me...what was that? I said...oh...just some kid playing basketball. Then in the morning I thought about it....who was playing basketball at that time? AND oh....there also is no basketball court there. SO that was really weird. Plus we came back to the room one time and my daughter's phone had been moved.
LOVED staying here and hope to stay here again.
