Beware if you opt for the ghost package when you make your reservation. Having never stayed at the Stanley I guess I was a little naive in thinking the ghost tour was part of the ghost package ... it's not. The frustrating part for me was, we called several times in the few days before our stay to find out when our ghost tour was scheduled. Since the tours are not associated with the Stanley, and no one ever seemed to be in the tours office, no one could give me any information. I was not told in any of these calls to the Stanley that we likely did not have reservations for the tour, though I explained each time that we had purchased the ghost package.
The ghost package does guarantee a room on the 4th floor, supposedly the floor with the most paranormal activity. So, imagine my surprise when I checked in and was told very cheerfully we had been "upgraded" to a room on the 3rd floor! After getting a supervisor involved and her doing a lot of talking to herself, they finally "found" a room on the 4th floor for us.
The hotel is a lovely historic hotel and maybe it was just the unusual heat for that region that soured the experience, but we won't be planning any more stays at the Stanley for several years.
