“Grand old hotel with lots of historic charm.”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Grand first class historic hotel with beautifully maintained bar, parlor, and beautiful music room/ballroom. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and have entertained many famous guests. Enjoy strolling the beautiful grounds on your own or take one of the haunted ghost tours. There are several rooms guaranteed to question your belief in the paranormal. Highly recommend visiting this spectacular historic site in a picturesque mountain setting!

After visiting Rocky mountain national park, we saw this big white building on the top of the hill and drove up to investigate. We had found The Stanley.. and did not realize what we had stumbled upon. We had a truly wonderful night's stay. Comfortable room, bed and pillows and an entertaining walk around the halls and lobby. EXCELLENT customer service. Felt like royalty. Absolutely loved it.

I took my husband to The Stanley Hotel for his birthday. He had always wanted to go but I wouldn't because of the hotel being haunted. But I finally gave in and was interested to see what went on up there! First, the hotel is gorgeous and the views are amazing. The service by all staff was excellent. The room we stayed in was small but very clean and had an awesome view of the lake and the mountains. Very peaceful. We did go on the Ghost Tour and it was the highlight of our trip. We encountered many ghosts and were blown away by all the activity and things that they did to show us they were there! It's a don't miss especially with "Scary Mary" as your tour guide. She was awesome! We highly recommend this hotel if you are into the paranormal.

Room Tip: You should know...the kid ghosts like to play on the 4th floor where our room was and they kept us u...

My husband and I stayed at The Stanley in November 2013 while spending a week driving through the state. After learning about it's history, we decided that we really wanted to stay there for a night. We were able to upgrade our room to a larger one with a jacuzzi tub for an additional $5. The room itself was great, although the television didn't work. This wasn't a big issue though because we weren't in the room a whole lot. The whiskey bar had great drinks and the view from our room was great! The hotel was very clean and the staff were polite and helpful.

We encountered Miss Jenny Rodin during our breakfast in the morning we were leaving the Stanley.She is BY far the most informative, pleasant helpful employee we encountered at your hotel. She should be in a management position....What a delight.

We stayed at The Stanley in September 2013. This hotel is beautiful and grand and has a fantastic history, as well as a few resident ghosts! Very close to the town, and not too far from the National park (Although we didnt get to go due to the government strike).Would higly reccomend the ghost tour. The Food in the resturant is great, best meatloaf ever! It also has a fantastic bar. The setting is idylliac, lots of wild elk, and deer.

Having said this, we did have some problems! The first rooms we were checked into were not great. Our room was covered in dog hair, even on the bed which presumably had been changed. My in laws, were given the keys to a room that was actually being refurbished and covered in dust sheets and paint. So as you can imagine, we were not super happy! They did however move us into one of the lodges (which lovely as it was, wasnt very clean), and credited our account for spending in the resturant. So all was resolved!

All in all, the location, building, and history makes for an amazing stay, but I do feel that housekeeping could be improved. Nether the less I would highly reccomend.

Always wanted to stay here, so my wife had a Sales meeting in Denver, so I booked the Hotel at a Super price, and we drove up on Friday night and even the short stay was wonderful Hotel is Historic, old and interesting. The bathtub was a little dated, but everything worked so it just added to the charm and character of the room. The restaurant was great for breakfast, but reservations are recommended. The Hotel also has a Cafe/pastry shop downstairs which is excellent for a quick picker upper. We enjoyed our short stay and will be back. The Hotel Staff is excellent and friendly. Yes, they say it's haunted, but we slept well and had a great time....
