We are currently working on blocking rooms for our guests in Estes Park for our wedding weekend! Some of our friends and family have requested recommendations of hotels in the area and here are few amazing places to stay:
The Stanley Hotel, managed by Grand Heritage Hotel Group, is a property of grandeur with stories steeped in history, the paranormal, pop culture, and even environmentalism. Having recently marked its 100-year anniversary, the hotel offers four unique lodging options, is located minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park and embraces its rich history as it continues to look to the future.
The Stanley Hotel was founded by F.O. Stanley, a wealthy businessman forced to move west for health reasons. He found himself in Estes Park, Colo., and in order to boost the economy, began building a hotel. The main building, one of 11 originally built on 160 acres, was completed in 1909. While the expansive property boasts amazing architecture, a magnificent setting and spectacular views, it may forever be best known as the inspiration for Stephen King’s spine-tingling novel “The Shining.”
King reportedly was a guest in Room 217 of a near-deserted Stanley in late 1974 before it was due to close for the winter. Though the entire property, from the concert hall and ballrooms to underground tunnel, is said to experience paranormal occurrences, Room 217 is said to be the most visited by living and spectral guests, alike.
This hotel was rated #1 in Estes Park according to Trip Advisor!
The Maxwell Inn is a family owned and operated Inn positioned perfectly for your next vacation to Estes Park; just a ten minute walk to downtown along the Fall River pathway, and less than four miles to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Peter and Dana Maxwell purchased the Inn in February of 2013 and transformed the Inn into one of Estes Park’s most unique – and highest rated – lodging locations. The list of improvements includes – but isn’t limited to – Serta beds with custom duvets and bed skirts, new linens and towels, custom furniture, new carpet throughout, new televisions, and improved lighting in every room.
The discounted rates for our guests for that weekend are: Double Queen = $149/night, King = $139/night and Queen = $129. Please have your guests book directly on the website (and write in the special request section that they are part of your wedding party to have the discounted rate applied to their reservation) or have them call the Inn directly.
We are currently working in blocking rooms in both locations and will update this information as soon as possible.
