Overpriced! My wife and I love to stay in historic hotels. We reserved a historic queen which was nice but incredibly small. Whiskey bar was very expensive as was the room. Were we glad we stayed? "yes", but I wouldn't do it again, you can get a much better room for less.

I will admit that this was on my bucket list because of its haunted reputation and it's connection to Stephen King's The Shining. I did enjoy that aspect of it, including the ghost tour that I took (although it was more of a ghost hunt), and the fact that the Jack Nicholson movie played 24/7 on one of the TV...

The Stanley - built by the inventor of the Stanley Steamer - is a marvelous hotel restored to its Edwardian Grandeur. Some scenes from "The Shining" (TV version) were shot here, and Stephen King was a long-term resident here while writing his novels. The hotel is world-renowned, has hosted the rich & famous, and is everything the most demanding guest...

Hello TravelTellers! Thank you for taking the time to give us a glowing review! We adore our heritage and hosting our fellow history buffs, what you say is true, they don't make architecture with the same detail anymore.

We stayed here one night with friends. It was a destination on our trip to Colorado. We wanted the thrill of staying where Stephen King got his inspiration for his book, The Shining. It did not disappoint even if it was a bit "touristy". We loved the building's history and the architecture. Would have loved an all inclusive breakfast.

We stayed at the hotel for one night a couple of weeks ago. We realized upon arrival that we should have booked our hotel tour in advance because they limit the number of people on the tour.

We stayed at the Stanley last Saturday night with our two daughters ages 12 and 8. The room in the Lodge which was a suite was beautiful, with an enormous bathroom and very comfortable king size bed, but the "fold out couch" was a twin bed, which couldn't accommodate both of our girls, so we ended up with the 8...

My wife and I like to stay here for weekend, we have been for a few years now and always love to stay at the Stanley. It's a wonderful charming old hotel and the bar has the largest selection of whiskey and single malt scotch in Colorado. If you like whiskey, this is the place for you.
