Austin is amazing 🤩 he helped me plan my husband's surprise birthday ❤️ thank you Austin! I've always been afraid to watch the Shinning then took the tour and loved to so much I came home and watched the movie! 🥰 The coffee shop downstairs has great lattes and ice cream. The new wine bar is beautiful and relaxing. We really enjoy Brunch and Co. My parents still talk about the view and the food. The bar has a great selection of scotch and whiskey. It's good times hanging out with stars above with a glass of scotch.

I took my mother for a girls trip to stay at the Stanley. It was a trip 20 years in the making. I would like to start by saying the staff was amazing; super friendly and accommodating. The Stanley is a beautiful hotel and I understand it is on the Historic Registry. That being said we requested an ADA room and were quite disappointed in it. The handrail to get off the toilet was behind the toilet and if you sat on the bench in the shower you couldn't reach the shampoo/conditioner/soap on the unit attached to the wall without standing. Also, while we were wandering around the hotel we looked in other rooms where the doors had been left open. All of the other rooms, not just suites, were much bigger and nicer than the ADA room and included a sofa to relax on. The ADA room had a chair in the corner. We still paid a very good amount for the room but I feel like it was lacking. That all being said, we took two of the tours and Viince was a great guide. He had fun stories and it was just the right amount of creepy.

For a truly classical old time experience, splurge and stay at the Stanley. Pricey but charming, renovated rooms with antique furniture, new bathrooms. We stayed in the Lodge building directly next door to the main hotel which is a 1/3 scale building but the rooms are the same. Didn’t try the dining room/bar but seemed very busy at night. Breakfast is in the Lodge building. We did enjoy the outside wine bar on the front porch one night watching the sunset against Longs Peak to the south. Not really suitable for hikers as no breakfast served until 8am so had to go to Egg of Estes 2 blocks away for an outstanding breakfast to reach the Rocky Mountain Park entrance queue before 8. We did enjoy a good breakfast at the hotel the last day before driving over Trail Ridge road. Note the HVAC is outdated as our room was too hot and thermostats for hot water heating are controlled centrally. Window AC struggled to overcome the heat generated. Beautiful grounds to stroll around and take some great pictures of the mountains and the hotel.

Tammi helped me book 25+ rooms, with EASE! She was SO easy to work with, so accommodating, so so friendly, AND she answered her phone and email whenever i had a question - no matter the importance. Tammi deserves a raise!!

When you pay the rates required at this “luxury” accommodation ($329 to $449 per night) you have certain expectations. 1. The room will be clean and you will have daily housekeeping service 2. The room will not have splotches of dried paint all over the carpet 3. Wood trims will be extended the full length of the wall 4. When you turn on the hot water faucet you will get hot water in less than four minutes 5. There will be somewhere to hang your clothes 6. There will not be holes in the ceiling or old wall anchors in the wall 7. The window in your room will not have gaps that let insects into your room 8. There will be an emergency escape route clearly outlined in your room and directional exit signs in the building Our fourth floor room lacked all of these amenities despite being one of the recently renovated rooms. Yes, the building is full of history, and there is supposed to be a lot of paranormal activity, but you have to get the basics right. Save your money; there are plenty of wonderful accommodations in Estes Park to choose from.

Had a great dinner ($400) with my Mom, wife and I. Tipped out the server $100 even tho he didn’t really deserve it. We took our drinks for a stroll around the hotel. Came back 10 minutes later trying to get to the fire pit out back. We got cut off by a rude server. Older blonde woman… not nice. Told us the fire pits were closed to dining. Told her we were just there and she couldn’t have been nastier. Stanley Hotel… woof bro

Very disappointed to find this gorgeous, historic hotel severely short staffed. Staff was friendly, efficient, and very helpful but housekeeping cleaned rooms only when you checked out. Request for fresh towels promptly filled. Hotel was very crowded with lots of children and young people. Parking lot completely filled. Only one restaurant with very limited menu. Brunch venue so understaffed it took us over an hour to get our food. There was a private event taking place at the same time and they were served while we waited and waited. We paid $700/night for a room in the historic part of the hotel complex. This is a hotel you should definitely visit sometime. But not now.

I'm a huge fan of the BIG, grand, old hotels - the Greenbrier, Homestead, the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY, the Princess hotels across Canada - and was looking forward to returning to the Stanley after 20 years. Unfortunately the Stanley has not aged as well as the other hotels have. The problems started at the front desk - and they were MASSIVE and continued throughout our short stay. There was a long line to check in and the line grew even longer while we waited (minimum of 20 minutes) For some reason there were four people behind the front desk when we checked in, but only two of them were working. One just stood in the back and "observed" which was a problem another employee who was actually attempting to check in guests was doing so on their first day of employment and without any obvious training on their computer system, which required constant interruption of the one employee who seemed to actually know what they were doing. It was an unseasonably warm day for late September in Colorado - over 80 degrees - yet the management decided to have a roaring fire in the lobby which is NOT air-conditioned. We stood - and sweated - waiting to get to the head of the line where we got the employee who was "working" their first day. I felt incredibly sorry for the one employee who knew how to operate their system as they had to try to do three check ins at one. Their machine to create the key cards was not cooperating so each of them had to leave the room to create the keys. And they are charging almost $400 a night for this massive screw-up. Once we had finally been assigned a room we were left to our own devices on finding the room as well as finding a way to get our luggage in without having to haul our large suitcase and my photographic gear up the front staircase. A hotel employee I asked for directions could not tell me if there was a ramp anywhere for that building, nor did anyone at the desk think to warn us of the staircase when we finally got our keys. Hot, sweaty, tired and irritated is not the best way to start a weekend away. All I wanted to do by then was get to the room and cool down. SURPRISE!! no - AC in the rooms!! They clearly think a ceiling fan and the low temp of 75 degrees is good enough for the chumps who stay here. Breakfast the next day didn't go any better. The service was worse than slow and a young man interviewing to be a server at the hotel was seated at the table next to us and received far more attention - and a visit from the chef - than we did. The food, when it finally came out, was good but the experience put even more of a sour taste in our mouths. Two bright points: a young man named Thiago at the desk in the lodge did manage to find us a room with a portable air conditioner which was very much appreciated. And a gentleman named Lamar who worked at the parking kiosk taking money from the legions of chumps who come to the hotel for the tour or to eat at least seemed to possess a sense of humor and awareness that the hotel could do better to please their paying guests. And yes, we did attempt to contact management while we were there. My husband left a voicemail for Jeanine Levasseur. It was not a surprise that she did not bother to return the call to learn about the reasons for our call let alone attempt to correct them! Our experience at this point was so annoying that we ate every other meal off the premises and left early on our last day to find at least something that would salvage this 30th anniversary trip from being a total disaster. This review is way too long, I know that, but I want to save other people the same fate. Save your money from the Stanley - stay somewhere else!!

Very disappointed with this place that seems to be trading on its past rather than catering to their clients. We stayed in a back room in the Lodge for $349/night. Room was small, bath had dirty bath towel and no hair conditioner. The hotel no longer services your room - apparently in cost saving measure. Had cocktails from the bar (also very expensive) in the main reception in front of the fireplace with a side table so sticky and stained obviously having not been wiped clean in ages. The bar toilet was most disgusting I've ever seen with feces all around toilet rim and no toilet paper. General cleanliness and upkeep around public areas was poor. At checkout I was not asked how my stay was nor thanked. Unbelievable. I would never stay here again.
