The Stanley Hotel is a 420-room Colonial Revival hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Approximately five miles from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the Stanley offers panoramic views of Lake Estes, the Rockies and especially Long's Peak. It was built by Freelan Oscar Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and opened on July 4, 1909, catering to the American upper class at the turn of the century. The hotel and its surrounding structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Stanley Hotel also hosted the horror novelist Stephen King, serving as inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in his 1977 bestseller The Shining and location for the 1997 miniseries.

The Stanley Hotel, Athens Reviews - Write a Review
Rooms are not only old furnished and not renovated but also dirty. We had issues with noise in a room facing inner court. From AC and and kitchen air vents. Blinds were too short so it would not darken the room. Hair drier (ancient type) did not work so a technician changed it at 10 pm. Smoking is allowed and encouraged by the presence of ash trays.. So the first room smelled bad. We could not open the door due to food smell . So we asked for another room. Same old and dirty style. Total disapointment.
The newly renovated rooms surpassed my expectations, the rooms were clean and spacious, you are given complimentary mini fridge which is refilled daily. The rooftop pool is okay, the pool itself is clean and maintained.The service staff are polite and check on you consistently. The views form both our room and the rooftop restaurant/pool areas were exceptional. You can see the acropolis and make out the surrounding area very easily. I would recommend this for couples or groups of people rather than young families.
DOV:26-31August2016 Fabulous hotel located just above the metro station. Rooms are too spacious and good. Breakfast is awesome. Highly Recommended!!!
Disadvantages: Room is small with a cold marble floor. The balcony looks out over the acropolis if you look on the right, but you mostly see, hear, and smell (really smell) the many cars at the huge roundabout in front of the hotel. Bathroom is outdated and really tiny, when showering either my back stood at an angle or the whole bathroom became wet. Curtains are not blinding so the room becomes quite light. Advantages: well located right next to a metro station, only a few stops until the city centre. Very nice rooftop terrace with pool to do some relaxation, which is often difficult when visiting a city. The pool is very cold but if you are brave enough to hold on it is nice to swim a number of lanes. The gym really suprised me; it is very clean and has modern machines, attributes, TVs, and clean towels. The minifridge in the room is filled with free water bottles each day. Conclusion: Unpleasantly surprised with the room, in my opinion not worthy of 4 stars. Very pleasantly surprised by the rooftop terrace and gym, which made my stay in the end pleasant. I would consider going here again but would most likely choose a different hotel.
All around great place. Renovated rooms are spacious and modern. Worth paying the extra fee for buffet breakfast in the Livingston restaurant. Roof has pool, bar and excellent restaurant with views of the Acropolis and the entire city, with very good service. Metro subway station 100 feet from main entrance. Will definitely stay here again.
