Attractive hotel with an interesting history

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Cool building and lobby. We were on the 4th floor and there was no AC so it was hot at night. The staff were exceptional

Comfortable, convenient and very relaxing.

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: It's historic preservation
Location: Enjoyed the shopping!
Our purpose for the trip was to take the ghost tour which was awesome. We also learned a lot about the history of hotel. My only regret was staying one night. I wish we would have stayed another night. Can't wait to go back again!

Beautiful Hotel, Great Location, and Wonderful Sta

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Our trip was quick but incredibly enjoyable. The hotel is located close the downtown Estes Park and an entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The Stanley sits on a hill where you get spectacular views of the valley and the mountains (including Long's Peak). The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. There is so much to explore and lots of details inside the hotel and around the property.

Impressive looking place but disappointing

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Its exterior
Cons: Accomodations
We rented a so-called 'Heritage Suite' that lacked a dresser, any shelf at all in the bathroom and a night table and lamp on one side of the king-size bed. The electronic key cards to the room kept failing during our four night stay, and food service on the front porch was less than successful. The staff was polite but couldn't satisfy any of our requests and repeated banal cliches regarding service.

Historic and a bit eerie....

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Location: Ride the Aerial Tram to the top of the mountain! Visit the Estes Park Brewery and try the RedRum Ale! Shop downtown! Just hang out The Stanley
Loved the beautiful, historic hotel. Although, we didn't have a ghost encounter, the hotel had an eerie feeling all on it's own..... The room itself was a bit too warm for me at night. There is no air conditioning. We were able to open the windows and at time had a cool mountain breeze. But, during our stay at The Stanley, in the middle of August, Estes Park was in the upper 80's. They do provide each room with a fan to use, if needed. Loved the hotel restaurant & bar (The Cascades)! The food is delicious! The drinks were refreshing and plentiful! If you are interested in a ghost tour, make sure you call ahead to reserve a spot on the tour!

Everything was perfect but no A/C

Posted Aug 15, 2014
This would have been the greatest stay of my life, but the 4th floor of a hotel with no A/C when it was 86 degrees in Estes today. We had a ceiling fan and a small fan by the window but until 1AM it was almost unbearable. Perhaps a big enough box fan by the window would have helped.

Anniversary Stay

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Beautiful location and wonderful history. Landscaping, new and old, was breathtaking.
Cons: Remodel rooms, add a sitting chair where possible.
Location: Estes Park and Rocky Mountain Park is right at the Stanley doorstep. There is everything a visitor could want. Beautiful flowers everywhere.
We have enjoyed staying at the hotel many previous times. This time we were disappointed with the size and condition of the room. The room was run down and need of refurbishing. It seemed minimal and very neglected.

Older hotel not well kept up

Pros: Loads of character
Cons: a little paint and updating
Location: Lots of great place to see
Got there in the pm and they had room ready, so we got into it. It was quite hot as no ac and we were on the fourth floor facing the setting sun.

Staff was friendly. Room was nice. Bathroom had a rainfall shower head. Whole hotel had a really cool old luxury feel.
