Famous for its old world charm, The Stanley Hotel boasts spectacular views in every direction and is less than six miles away from Rocky Mountain National Park. Multiple renovations have restored this 140-guest room hotel to its original grandeur. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America, The Stanley offers over 16,000 square feet of unique meeting and event space equipped with modern day amenities. Only an hour away from Denver, it is the ideal destination for your Colorado getaway.

The Stanley Hotel, known for its architecture, magnificent setting and famous visitors, may possibly be best known today for its inspirational role in Stephen King's novel, "The Shining".

This 140-room neo-Georgian hotel was the real-life inspiration for Stephen King’s The Shining (the hotel plays the uncut version of Kubrick’s horror film on continuous loop on channel 42 for guests). Beware room 217 as it’s been the site of paranormal activity since the 1950s. In fact, guests have reported odd occurrences in every room of this hotel, including having items mysteriously moved around, lights turning off and on, and children heard laughing in the fourth floor hallway.

The hotel has been featured as one of America's most haunted hotels and with the numerous stories from visitors and staff, The Stanley Hotel continues to "shine" today, as it did in 1909 when first opened.

Recently the hotel announced it would be moving its pet cemetery to make room for a new wedding and corporate retreat pavilion. More on that story here: http://roadtrippers.kinja.com/real-hotel-from-the-shining-is-digging-up-its-pet-cemet-1452618677

The tours are great, the night ghost tour is more than a little bit freaky. If you actually stay there book the Ghost Adventure package and you get an EMF detector. Though if you do stay there the hotel restaurant is pretty pricey so be prepared for that.
