  • Not Good Value

    by Edward P on 2018-09-23 04:42 am

    This property IS an old stately hotel with panache. However it is a dubious value. Our suite lacked basic amenities such as towel bars, hair dryers, clock alarms and the bath is very small circa 1970 with a stained shower curtain.. Furniture was mismatched pieces worn uncleaned sofa fabric and water damaged table tops. Carpet was raveled at the seams. And retail is in the mid $400 per range.
    The most objectionable condition was the continous presence of oftentimes sweatpant tshirt clad large groups of meandering tourists in the lobby and hallways with ghost tours launching something like every 15 minutes from midmorning till late night. Staff is seasonal and not on the ball

  • Really cool! A highlight of our trip!

    We stayed at the Stanley as part of a hiking tour through Estes. We had no idea of the history of the hotel. What fun! A haunted hotel! The views are fabulous. The food is great. What not to love? We stayed in the lodge which I understand is quieter than the main hotel.

  • We did not stay, but offer this information

    I cannot attest to the experience of staying there, because we did not. We did peak at the rooms and they are gorgeous. We just came to check the place out, while camping nearby. We parked the RV there, because we had to leave our dog in it. That cost us $10, but we got a coin worth $5 at the bar/restaurant. The guys used the coin to buy a beer ($7). What I found annoying is we were due some change ($.38) from the bar-tender who shorted us saying he had no change. Uhm, OK, so we don't have the full amount for your tip either.

    The grounds here are lovely. If you don't want to pay for parking, park down the hill and walk up.

  • Great reception

    First of all you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and Eileen nailed it!! She is awesome with her attentiveness and attention to details. What a great person to have to represent your company!!

    We received tips on local establishments to visit. Our stay was fantastic. It was our first visit to Estes park and not our last. Loved everything about it.

    Thank you Eileen for your assistance, keep up the great hospitality!!!

  • We cannot wait to return

    I cannot say enough about the staff and accommodations at The Stanley. Everyone was super polite and helpful. Every employee we passed in the hall would smile and greet us. Random questions about the area were always met with enthusiasm and a helpful answer. They really know how to stress customer service with their employees.

    The tours are very entertaining, even if you are not into the spooky stuff, take the hunted tour as well as the historic tour. We enjoyed both and couldn't really decide which one to take if we could only do one.

    With the onsite Cascades Restaurant and attached bar, you really don't need to go anywhere else. Prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality in a "tourist" area. Having a drink at the bar the bartenders were very engaging and we always found ourselves chatting it up with fellow travelers.

    There were a couple of weddings our second night which made the main floor very busy. Even then, service was prompt and on the same level as the quieter days.

    What can you say about the view? The location is spectacular. Every morning walking down the grand staircase to the front doors wide open overlooking the mountains, great way to start the day!!

    The only complaint is the bathroom in our suite. The mirror is so low, at 6' 1" it topped out at my chin. For some reason this is a common issue I have when traveling, so not a unique issue with The Stanley.

    My wife and I will be back.
