Fodor's Expert Review Stanley Hotel

333 Wonderview Ave., Estes Park, Colorado, 80517, USA Fodor's Choice

Perched regally on a hill, with a commanding view of town, the Stanley is one of Colorado's great old hotels, featuring Georgian colonial–style architecture and a storied, haunted history, inspiring Stephen King's novel The Shining and daily "ghost" tours. The Cascades restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the renovated Whiskey Bar serves Colorado's largest selection of whiskeys and scotches.
