Famous Haunted Places--The Stanley Hotel

Updated on March 11, 2011
The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado
The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado

Stephen King spent several weeks in room 217 while writing his book, “The Shinning.”  The spirits  residing in The Stanly Hotel inspired his story, but he took a few liberties with their personalities.  


Stephen King is not the only guest or staff member at The Stanley Hotel who has seen and heard the various spirits that reside there.  Many of the other spirits mentioned in “The Shinning” have been seen, as well.  F.O. Stanley and his wife, Flora have appeared on many occasions.  The piano in the music room is played by unseen hands and F.O. is still playing pool in the Billiards Room.  Several guests of room 418 have complained about the noise the children made while playing in the hallway outside their door in the middle of the night.  Naturally, no living children were registered.  Actually, the entire fourth floor of the infamous hotel seems to be haunted.  The floor used to be where the servants resided.  There have been so many spirit sighting at the Hotel that the owners now offer Ghost tours of the place. 


Another spirit who hangs out in room 407 enjoys harassing guests by turning the lights on and off.   A face has also been seen outside the window, which is quite a feat, since it is on the fourth floor!  Unexplained noises and manifestations are reported on a regular basis all over the hotel.

      Great Hub, Christine! Has this one been featured on "T.A.P.S." as well? They've been to so many places, I've lost track!

      Wish I could afford to travel there & experience it for myself! This is so interesting!
