We decided to visit Estes Park and the Stanley Hotel after the completion of a conference in Denver. Are we glad we did. I too agonized over staying at a hotel with such mixed reviews. However my spirit of adventure could not be denied. I talked with Lindsay in reservations who could not have been more helpful in selecting a room. We finally chose a haunted room on the 4th floor room 428. The day we arrived at the Stanley we came early and sat in the comfortable chairs in front of the warm and welcoming fireplace. I picked up our tickets for the History and Ghost Tour and by the time I returned to the lobby my husband had checked us in. The room was large and spacious at the top of the 4th floor stairs. We had a set of windows in the front that overlooked the mountains and windows on the side. We had a lot of light and ventilation. The bed was huge and we couldn't wait to jump onto the bed. The linens were crisp and soft and very comfortable. The bath needed to be remodeled but hopefully in the future. We ate in the bar and the service and food was excellent. The next morning we ate at Cascades for breakfast and we highly recommend the blueberry pancakes with Devonshire clotted cream. The best breakfast I have had anywhere. After breakfast my husband and I enjoyed the gift shop and sadly it was time to check out. We are already planning a longer return visit to the Stanley. It has it all, romance, mystery, ghosts and history..
