Stanley Hotel Ghosts - Is the Stanley Hotel Estes Park Colorado Haunted?

The Story of the Stanley Hotel: If you are a Stephen King fan (The "Shining"), request room 217. It was in this room that King, inspired by the Stanley Hotel, wrote half of "The Shining." The ABC miniseries was filmed at the Stanley Hotel as well.

The Stanley Hotel Haunting: The ghosts in the Stanley Hotel aren't evil as in the book. Room 418 seems to have the most ghostly activity reported. In fact, the entire fourth floor of the Stanley Hotel (formerly the servants quarters) is quite active. Often, the sound of children playing in the halls of the Stanley can be heard, even when no children are present.

I have been to the Stanley hotel on numerous occasions, and I have not ever felt any paranormal activity, but I have felt that it was a pretty strange place with a lot of history. There are many resources and sites on the web with photos of the Stanley, and some that purport to be of ghostly activity. The only way to really believe in it or not is to visit the hotel youreslf.

The Stanley Hotel is known for ghosts....and many folks believe they come in the form of "orbs" which are bubbles of light. This picture was taken in one of the hallways at the Stanley Hotel. The Stanley is located about an hour from Denver in Estes Park.
