My husband and I checked in to spend a night "away" in Estes and wanted to stay at the Stanley after seeing the front of it in The Shining. Finding the lobby was a challenge after making a couple of wrong turns - but once we found it the hotel is old, antiqued, and charming. The hotel was not packed with people, and the lobby had cheery fires burning where people were sitting in big overstuffed chairs relaxing. We signed up for the Hotel Tour (or Ghost Tour) that evening. We staid in Room 224 - a nicely updated room. My husband was happy it had a stand fan in the room to block out noise. One problem i saw early on was that I could see a slot in the hallway from where the bottom of our door wasn't meeting up with the frame. I'm a bit paranoid so we put a pillow in front of the door all night.
The ghost tour was fun and it was interesting getting to see some different rooms in the hotel, and hear some fun ghost stories. There were plenty of opportunities to take pictures! The next morning we had a quick breakfast downstairs in the cafe. We both had hot chai teas, he had a breakfast bagel and I had a spinach and cheese croissant. It was all delicious, but rang in at $18. Our room was $214 - a little high priced, but we willingly paid it for our night together. We both agreed we would stay here again!
