"Choosing the right location for your getaway can make or break your trip, which is why most, if not all, people spend plenty of time thinking where to stay," starts Reference.com's list of
The Most Legendary Place to Stay In Every State, which names the Stanley Hotel as the best in Colorado!
Reference, "You can thank Stanley Kubrick for the spine-chilling reputation of the Stanley Hotel in Colorado," adding that "Being the model for the famous hotel in the classic horror film, The Shining, it’s no surprise that many people choose to check in here to get a first-hand feel of what it’s like to be in the said movie."
In addition to Colorado's Stanley Hotel, Reference.com also pays homage to the Beverly Hills Hotel in California, Fontainbleau in Florida, and the Drake Hotel in Illinois (pictured).
Located in Estes Park, the Stanley Hotel has a reputation that precedes itself, thanks to not only the Stephen King classic but also the hospitality, world-class amenities, and jaw-dropping views you will find at the hotel.
Opened in 1909, the Stanley Hotel is a 140-room Colonial Revival resort that features not only luxurious accommodations but restaurants and bars, special events, and close proximity to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain Park.
Don't care for the paranormal? No problem, as most rooms are somewhat innocent, minus Room 217 (where a housekeeper was allegedly electrocuted in 1912).
