The Stanley Hotel is impressive and beautiful from the outside. It offers incredible views of the mountains and of Estes Park. It is a historic hotel and offers a lot of history, but the rooms reflect how old a property this is. Considering the fact that we had previously stayed in luxury hotels in Denver, Breckenridge, Aspen, and Vail on this same vacation and that this was the most expensive of all of these cities, I was a bit disappointed with our experience. The woman who checked me in was friendly, but not especially helpful. She just gave me my key and that was it, no offer to help with luggage, no information about what else the hotel had to offer, no nothing. Our room was supposed to be one of the newly renovated rooms, which I guess it was, but it still wasn't very impressive. The attention to detail just wasn't there - I understand it is historic, but the fact that the picture over the bed was way over to one side instead of centered just gave us a sense of no pride. That was just a sense of our experience. There is no a/c in this hotel - it does cool down at night but we were still incredibly hot while there. I did see fans in windows of other rooms as we left, but we didn't have one in our room and weren't offered one at check in. We also had requested a crib at check in and there wasn't one in the room. I asked again and they sent one up. It was so disgusting that my husband put it right back in the hall. It looked so old (it was a pack and play) and had black moldy looking stains all over the part that the child lies on. Even though we would have a sheet over top of it, I wasn't taking any chances. For the price we paid, they need to invest in some new cribs. To summarize, I liked the historic aspect of the hotel and it's a beautiful property but it doesn't live up to the price paid - we were disappointed.
