My mother and I stayed here for 2 nights on Thanksgiving 2010, one for the get away for the holiday and two, I'm a paranormal investigator with Southern Colorado Paranormal Researchers (SCPR). You have to realize and accept that this is a 101 year old hotel with history beyond belief. It is not only history of Stephen Kings "The Shining", but moreso the history of a man that built this home and helped Estes Park become what it is today. The hotel cannot make a lot of changes that affect the the looks of the exterior of the hotel due to it being on the historic registry. That is part of the history of a historical structure. Therefore, windows cannot be changed and winterized. Yes our room was cold the first night as it was during our first major cold storm that came through. Being the holiday we did not want to complain and make the staff run ragged that first night as there were many people checking in and new they would be busy. The next morning, Thanksgiving Day, I did mention it in passing at the front desk. Next thing I knew, maintenance was in our room and they were fixing the heat and providing us a space heater to help warm us up. When we checked in and checked out, one of the employees noticed we needed assistance and helped us with our luggage, without our even asking for help. These little things are what make this hotel a warm and loving place. Enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner. Enjoyed drinks by one of the fireplaces in the lobby. Enjoyed the staff allowing me to set up a private paranormal investigation.
