The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park Colorado

The Stanley Hotel is best known for the 1980 cult classic “The Shining.” Combining the talents of writer Stephen King, director Stanley Kubrick, and actor Jack Nicholson, this has incited more than its share of nightmares. Upon mention of the hotel, most people will immediately be thinking:

Redrum, Here’s Johnny, or a typewriter with the words, All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

The hotel is a luxurious place with rooms and hallways full of charm, mirrors (are there evil spirits looking back at you?), fine dining options, and breathtaking views everywhere you look – Only a six mile drive to Rocky Mountain National Park.
