So we booked a room in the lodge and it was charming. We saw other reviews that there isnt air conditioning and was glad we had a corner room because the cross breeze was perfect. The room was smaller than the norm nowadays, but it had a ton of character and was cozy for us. We also requested a fridge...

The setting of this iconic hotel could hardly be bettered. What views over the snow-capped Rockies in May. Only, we were to find that the 'room with a view', booked, at an extra cost of $57 / night - had not been booked. We were confronted by one particularly aggressive male receptionist "to show proof of the email that confirmed...

We have heard about this hotel for years since The Shining even though the movie wasn't filmed here, only the made for tv movie. The drive up appeal is nice, and the latest owner is really making an effort to bring it back to its former glory. Our room was nice, and we had a great view over the maze...

How can you go to Estes Park and not stay at the Stanley at least once? The ambiance of the hotel and lobby is spectacular, especially with the surrounding mountains. We didn't opt for any of the special haunted rooms and our room was large and comfortable. A couple of minor repairs needed, but what the heck, it is over...

We opted for a fourth floor historic room. Nice view to the back patio and surrounding hills. Nice room, clean and well-appointed. We came to the Stanley through a LivingSocial.com offer, but we had always admired the hotel and wished to stay there. Had a scrumptious breakfast at the restaurant, nicely prepared and presented. The only negative is the quality...

We stayed at The Stanley Hotel's "Lodge" and it was an elegant, classic European-type experience. Went hiking everyday ; 2 days in the snow , then 3 days of 45-55 F crystal clear skies up to Dream Lake. - Additional to all this beauty was the Lodge's gourmet, 6 course dinners on Fridays and Saturdays with pairings of a wine...

We spent one night recently at the Stanley with our two teenagers. The grounds are beautiful and it was fun to take a step back in time. However, I would never recommend this hotel if you are looking for a relaxing or comfortable stay. We were unfortunate enough to get a room on the second floor, right above the bar....

Dear Marci M, I apologize that you found your experience with us below your expectation. We do try to comfortably accommodate our guests in the balance between our historic high end style and the popular haunted mystique. We have many rooming options for all preferences.

This is a nice historic property in the heart of Estes Park. Nice, comfortable, modern rooms. Very tasty complimentary breakfast and very accommodating staff and service. I would come back and recommend it. The Whiskey Bar was fantastic. Inventive cocktails, delicious food and the bar staff (Charlie and Jimmy) were fantastic.
