Known for its old-world charm and breathtaking mountain views, Stanley Hotel is also notorious for its connection to The Shining, one of Stephen King’s most famous films. The hotel’s founder, Freelan O. Stanley of Stanley Steamer, and the many famous guests it has hosted over the years, further its rich history and claims to fame. The hotel celebrates this fame by offering ghost tours to its guests. Tours include history of the hotel, a stop in room 217 where The Shining began, recounts of ghost sightings and a trip through the underground tunnel.

The now luxury resort hotel is located just six miles from Rocky Mountain National Park and approximately one hour from Denver. Its location makes it a popular Colorado excursion.
