What We Love

  • Original architectural elements — like glass doorknobs and elaborate crown moldings — were preserved when the guestrooms were renovated in 2011
  • Huge windows open to let in the crisp, clean mountain air
  • Free WiFi
  • A herd of elk often grazes on the golf course–size front lawn
  • Just minutes from the east entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park

What To Know

  • This is a historic hotel, so the floors creak and each room is unique
  • Rooms on the third and fourth floors have the best mountain views
  • There’s no air conditioning, but the nights are cool and most rooms have ceiling fans
  • Estes Park's elevation is 7,522; drink lots of water and wear sunscreen (even in winter)

Gotta Say You've Been Therre Once!

Interesting! Beautiful decor, history, visits from the stars, displays, stories to be told. Lots of crowds though too that want to see it. Get there early, view the grounds & the interior, & read the whole story.

Beautiful historic hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for a seminar. Beautiful! Old wood work and nicely kept rooms. The room was large and comfortable. They have stand alone air conditioners which worked really well and kept the room nice and cool. The grounds are pretty and the staff was helpful. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch. The number of tourists during the day is a bit overwhelming, but for the most part didn't effect our stay. I'd love to stay there again.

NEVER AGAIN! Total Disappointment and no response from hotel after numerous attempts

What kind of luxury hotel has no bottled water or refrigerators in the room? At this elevation, why would water not be available (even for purchase) 24/7? Ice yes, but you have to wait for it to melt to drink it. What do we do with medication or baby milk that needs to be refrigerated? NO ROOM SERVICE? What kind of luxury hotel has no room service. The waiters were also rude - after we ate at Cascades, we went out on patio to enjoy our $10 drinks and were told we needed to be EATING at the tables and not drinking. Waiter would not take our drink order and there were zero people on the patio! Again, no reply from hotel. I may even dispute this charge because we were set up for a Classic King room which said included "Kitchen" and I don't think coffee maker, 2 plastic cups and an empty ice bucket atop of the dresser, equals a "kitchen". The gift store and the cafe on lower level both close at 6, so you're out of luck if you want a bottle of water or anything else for that matter. No spa either which I could live without. WATER I cannot live without. EXTREMELY disappointed and this was our 15 year anniversary gift to ourselves. Even Twin Owls Motor Lodge down the street has refrigerators in rooms!

Birthday Party of 15 in the restaurant and over to the bar afterwards.

After paying over $100 just to park ($10 each) and then dropping over $1,500 on dinner, drinks, and a tip, security stopped us twice from simply browsing around the inside of the hotel. My family and friends will "NEVER" stay in the hotel, eat another meal, or buy another drink again.

NOT a luxury hotel!!

What a complete waste of $450/night! If you are thinking that for luxury hotel prices you are going to get a luxury hotel you will NOT! Loved Estes Park but completely disappointed with The Stanley. Dirty sheets. Floor mounted air conditioner was LOUD. Could not watch tv unless tv volume was cranked. No closet (or armoire) in room - need to hang some clothes? Too bad you picked the wrong hotel! Ironing board simply propped up against wall as you enter. Tiny little toilet. No shelving of any type in shower so good luck putting all your essentials on the floor or precariously balanced on top of the door. Overcooked shrimp in 'first class' restaurant. French fries that will chip a tooth. And on and on and on and on.....
