Case Study- Stanley Hotel
April 9, 2014
An iconic and infamous vacation locale, the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado is a breathtaking historical landmark located at the base of Rocky Mountain National Park. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America, you may be more familiar with it as the setting of Steven King’s novel and subsequent movie, The Shining, and it’s allegedly haunted properties.
Haunted HistorySince opening in 1909, numerous accounts of odd behavior and ghosts have been reported, leading the property to be a regular feature on Ghost Hunters, the Sy Fy show that investigates paranormal activity. All of the rooms have had out-of-the-ordinary experiences reported, including having items moved from place to place, as well as lights turning on and off. If you stay on the fourth floor, you just might get to hear the children of long ago running up and down the halls, laughing and giggling. Some have even heard the original owners playing piano in the Music Room or seen them wandering the halls of their beloved property.
Known for its architecture, magnificent setting and famous visitors, it’s no wonder the Stanley Hotel chose a tin ceiling to capture it’s historic essence. Grab a drink where Jack Nicholson does in the movie and you’ll instantly be transported to a completely different place and time, maybe even with some guests from the past.
