With no central heating or ventilation system, the structure was designed to facilitate natural airflow; the Palladian window at the top of the grand stair could be opened to induce a cross-breeze through the lobby, French doors in all the public spaces open onto verandas, and two curving staircases connecting the guest corridors prevent stagnant air in the upper floors.
Although the main hotel is now heated in the winter, guests still depend on natural ventilation for cooling in the summer.
Within a few years of opening, a hydraulic elevator was put in operation. In , the east wing of the main building was extended in the rear adding several guest rooms.
Around this time, the alcove of the music room was added. In , a rear veranda was enclosed forming a room that currently serves as a gift shop.
Around , the hydraulic elevator system was replaced with a cable-operated system and extended to the fourth floor necessitating the addition of a secondary cupola to house the mechanical apparatus.
Originally, a porte-cochere extended from the central bay of the front porch, but this was removed when the south terrace was converted into a parking lot.
In , a service tunnel was excavated, connecting the basement-level corridor to the staff entrance. It is cut directly through the living granite on which the hotel rests.
The concert hall, east of the hotel, was built by Stanley in with the assistance of Henry "Lord Cornwallis" Rogers, the same architect who designed his summer cottage.
According to popular legend, it was built by F. Stanley as a gift for his wife, Flora. The stage features a trap door, used for theatrical entrances and exits.
The lower level once housed a two-lane bowling alley which was removed during the ownership of Maxwell Abbell. It possibly resembled the bowling alley at the Stanley's Hunnewell Club in Newton, pictures of which are archived in the Newton Free Library.
The hall underwent extensive repair and renovation in the s. Once called Stanley Manor, this smaller hotel between the main structure and the concert hall is a scaled-down version of the main hotel.
Unlike its model, the manor was fully heated from completion in which may indicate that Stanley planned to use it as a winter resort when the main building was closed for the season.
However, unlike many other Colorado mountain towns now famous for their winter sports, Estes Park never attracted off-season visitors in Stanley's day and the manor remained empty for much of the year.
Today it is called The Lodge and serves as a bed-and-breakfast that is off-limits to the public. Any big hotels have got scandals Just like every big hotel has got a ghost.
Hell, people come and go. Hotels are superstitious places. In , during their brief residency in Boulder, Colorado , horror writer Stephen King and his wife Tabitha spent one night at the Stanley Hotel.
At the time of his visit, King was writing a book with the working title Darkshine set in an amusement park, but was not satisfied with the setting.
According to George Beahm's Stephen King Companion , "on the advisement of locals who suggested a resort hotel located in Estes Park, an hour's drive away to the north, Stephen and Tabitha King found themselves checking in at the Stanley Hotel just as its other guests were checking out, because the hotel was shutting down for the winter season.
After checking in and after Tabitha went to bed [sic], King roamed the halls and went down to the hotel bar, where drinks were served by a bartender named Grady.
As he returned to his room, numbered , his imagination was fired up by the hotel's remote location, its grand size, and its eerie desolation.
And when King went into the bathroom and pulled back the pink curtain for the tub, which had claw feet, he thought, 'What if somebody died here?
At that moment, I knew I had a book. In a interview by the Literary Guild , King recounted "While we were living [in Boulder] we heard about this terrific old mountain resort hotel and decided to give it a try.
But when we arrived, they were just getting ready to close for the season, and we found ourselves the only guests in the place—with all those long, empty corridors.
So the music is echoing down the hall, and, I mean, it was like God had put me there to hear that and see those things. And by the time I went to bed that night, I had the whole book [ The Shining ] in my mind.
He was being chased by a fire-hose. I woke up with a tremendous jerk, sweating all over, within an inch of falling out of bed. I got up, lit a cigarette, sat in a chair looking out the window at the Rockies, and by the time the cigarette was done, I had the bones of The Shining firmly set in my mind.
The Shining was published in and became the third great success of King's career after Carrie and 'Salem's Lot. The primary setting is an isolated Colorado resort named the Overlook Hotel which closes for the winter.
In the front matter of the book, King tactfully states "Some of the most beautiful resort hotels in the world are located in Colorado, but the hotel in these pages is based on none of them.
The Overlook and the people associated with it exist wholly in the author's imagination. From to , the hotel property hosted the Stanley Film Festival , an independent horror film festival operated by the Denver Film Society, held in early May.
The festival featured screenings, panels, student competitions, audience awards and receptions. Bravo's cooking competition Top Chef also used the Stanley as a venue for Episode 10 of Season 15, all of which took place in various locations around Colorado.
Indie rock band Murder by Death have performed an annual series of winter concerts at the Stanley Hotel since , with the edition being their seventh such event.
Despite a peaceful early history, in the years following the publication of The Shining , the Stanley Hotel gained a reputation as a setting for paranormal activity.
