We stayed here during out visit to Estes - it was an amazing location with beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife that entertained the kids. The hotel itself is a national treasure - it has been remodeled and "Hollywood-ified" since the Shining and mini-series was filmed...the wallpaper and painting in the MacGreggor room is not original to the building - and neither is the exterior. However, it is amazing to see how far this hotel has come since it was built so long ago, and it amazing to hear about the Stanley family and how far advanced they were for their time - the staff are very proud and honored to work there, and it shows with their level of service they shower on their guests..
It is a bit expensive, so plan to go during a special event such as the film "festival" in May or during October's Shining Ball - if you get a chance to go on a tour - DO IT! It is fun, and great to see all the sites that are normally off limits unless you work there. Nothing scary happened during our trip, as they tout that many of the "spirits" are friendly and not in any way malicious or evil in nature....
I would stay again!!
