First off, in case there are misconceptions- The Stanely Hotel influenced the writing of the Shining, but was not the set for the Kubrick Movie. It apparently was the setting for the 1990's The Shining mini-series. Either way, I was hoping it was much more remote and not surrounded by ski lodges and a five minute walk to a Safeway....

Great showmanship! Stories are fasinating,interesting and intriguing. Aiden's art is crazy ,fun and mysterious! He is very personable with a genuine warmth and artistry as an illusionist! We will definintly come back to The Stanley to see him perform again! The price is very reasonable.

I have been to The Stanley twice now, each time in January to see a band my fiancée and I love (Murder By Death; the show has a "The Shining" element to it...lots of fun). The scenery is breathtaking! Last year we stayed at The Lodge, this year we stayed in one of the condos. The whole area is absolutely...

The hotel is beautiful, the staff friendly and accommodating and historically speaking, it can't be beat. The only draw back is the crowds but fortunately they are not allowed on the upper floors unless they are on a tour.

We went in December, it was a very busy time of year and busy weekend. Yet the staff took such incredibly good care of us. Especially the concierge Chad Franke. He made us feel very welcome and made a large hotel seem very small and friendly.

The Stanley Hotel is an important historical building for Estes Park, and for Colorado overall. This is why it is so sad that it is not being maintained and staffed at the level it should be. To be clear, some staff were friendly and helpful. When you pay hundreds of dollars a night for a hotel room, however, you expect...

Dear 1975Panda, Thank you for your visit and feedback. We are sorry that your stay coincided with some of the heaviest snow that we have seen in Estes Park in quite some time. We do have staff working 24/7 to clear the snow and ice. We apologize if you felt that we didn’t keep up. Given the historic nature of...

The Stanley Hotel is one of Estes Park's must-see locations. However, if you plan on staying there, know what you are asking for. The hotel has a rich history, some beautiful buildings and views, and of course a connection with the book/movie The Shining. Unfortunately, there are several downsides to staying there. The building is old, so there are noises,...

This hotel is not in great shape. There are several places where carpets are threadbare, guest room doors do not close securely / well. I realize it's old, but one would think given the cost of the stay, that it would be preserved a little more efficiently / more well taken care of! Customer service also very poor. When we...

The Stanley Hotel was a great place to visit, but not a great place to stay. For a hotel with such historic recognition and notoriety you would think that their service would be outstanding. There was absolutely no service to speak of. NONE! If nothing you should visit this hotel for a few pictures, a drink with a themed cocktail...

I booked a surprise gift of an overnight stay and ghost tour for my daughter. I found the reservations agent super nice and accommodating. My daughter thought the ghost tour, the room (4th floor) and the staff were excellent. She did say that she thought something pulled at her blanket in the middle of the night so I'm not sure...
