“Good Hotel”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

My sister and I stayed there becuase Hollywood effect the hotel has. We went on the Tour and found it very interesting! The guide was new but did a great job. Had she not mentioned to me that she was new I would not have known. The front desk was professional and gave us an upgrade. The room was small but the bathroom was very nice. The showerhead was large and the tub had jets. The night auditor, Kristen, was AMAZING! She answered all our questions and helped us with everything. Great employee!!!!

we actually stayed in october of 2009,but the date wouldn't go back that far!

we stayed in the same room jason hawes on ghost hunters stayed in,rm #401,and had a lot of activity from the playful spirits there. the closet door opened and closed several times,the t.v. turned itself off and on,the covers were pulled off of us in the night and there was audible whispering in the room.

so if you are looking for a good paranormal experience,the stanlty is the way to go!

Room Tip: request rm#217 or 401 well in advance!

We loved our stay at The Stanley. it is steeped in history and has such elegant charm. We had a suite room which was huge. The rooms and hotel are very old fashioned but that's part of the point of going there, in my opinion. The Cascades restaurant makes great drinks (with throwbacks to the Shining like "red rum punch") and the food is pretty good too. It was snowing when we went which was a nice touch to the weekend, and the views of the mountains are spectacular.
We also took the ghost tour and it was fascinating to me, as I have always been a huge Stephen King fan. We will definitely be back and do recommend it.

Room Tip: The hotel is creaky-maybe a higher floor

My husband and I booked our rooms at a substantial discount during the free National Park Week promotion. We were upgraded to a nicer suite and the service we received was amazing. To stay at the Stanley was on my bucket list and it was well worth the dream I had.The ghost tour was a hoot. Those who fail to enjoy it just need to do it again with a new perspective and enjoy it for what it is....a RIOT! We had a great time. Loved Rocky Mountain National Park, the beautiful city, the elk roaming around everywhere. I'd go again tomorrow....and yes, during the middle of the night my husband's computer bag went flying across the room. Haunted? Maybe!

Room Tip: Go during a special event time in the area.

My girlfriend and I had a delightful "girls" retreat while our respective husbands were out of state. I had always wanted to stay at The Stanley and it was NOT a disappointment! Would do it again in a heartbeat and have already told my husband we need to go there for our anniversary. The historic charm and ambience create a fabulously relaxing atmosphere and we particularly enjoyed lounging in the oversize chairs that evening by one of the fireplaces in the lobby. I highly recommend the ghost tour as well. That was very informative and fun. If possible, request "Scary Mary" for your tour guide. Nothing scary about her. She is lovely, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor!

Room Tip: Request a corner suite on fourth floor!

We recently spent one night at the Stanley and had a great time! We stayed in the Manor House and had a great room with amazing views of the mountains. The property was well kept, and beautifully restored. We had room service breakfast which was great! We felt like everything was a little pricey, the room, drinks at the bar and breakfast, but it was worth it for a special occassion. I look forward to going back to the Stanley in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for mountain view.
