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
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.
