What's the tale? The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King's "The Shining" when he booked a vacation there at the end of the season and the hotel was virtually empty. Even though Stephen King stayed in room 217 it is rooms 408, 418 and the entire fourth floor is the most haunted. F.O. Stanley built the hotel that opened in 1909. He and his wife Flora haunt the hotel and are seen often by employees and guests. Flora plays the piano and is highly visible day and night spotted most frequently in the billiards room and the lobby. The handprints of children appear in the room on the fourth floor, mostly room 408. Guests hear the giggling voices of children in the hallways.
What do we know as fact? Thanks to this site we know the hotel was built by F.O Stanley after he purchased the 160 acres from Lord Dunraven. He was an exceptional businessman with many accolades to his name. The hotel has housed many, many guests, visitors and employees since 1909 and therefore it is not unsual that a place like this should be haunted.
Thoughts: The hotel takes its paranormal experiences seriously and offers a ghost tour to explain all the sightings, experiences, legends and paranormal activity. There are long-term documented cases of paranormal activity in the hotel on a ghost, spirit and residual energy basis.Tags: The Stanley Hotel
