Avoiding Ghosts at the Stanley

August 27, 2009

There’s a legend that the Stanley Hotel is haunted…


This beautiful hotel has a history of haunted happenings.  Opened in 1909, it is most famously the setting for Stephen King’s The Shining.  Hotel owner F.O. Stanley, long dead, mystically appears in the Billiards Room, and has been seen by groups of tourists in the lobby.  His wife, Flora, who loved to play the piano, continues to periodically entertain hotel guests.  Staff and guests report hearing music and enter the room to find the piano keys moving.


Voices, apparitions, music, nonexistent children have all been reported at the Stanley.

So when the Running Man and I booked our room (for the screaming mid-week special price of $81, thank you very much) we wondered if we would have any strange things happen.


Sadly, we had no incidents to report.  But we got a great night’s sleep, so it is possible that we slept right through various people parading through our room to visit.  I think I’m grateful not to see one though…
