Stanley Hotel

The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado is the most famous haunted hotel in America. The Stanley Hotel may seem familiar, especially if you’re a Stephen King fan. King was staying here when he developed the idea for his book The Shining. Later, the television miniseries based on the book was filmed at the Stanley.

Even more interesting than its connection to Hollywood is the Stanley Hotel’s multitude of ghosts. Guests have seen the ghosts of the hotel’s original owner and his wife, along with various other apparitions. Employees and guests have often reported hearing strange noises from unoccupied rooms or seeing the piano in the parlor play by itself.

    If the piano is playing by itself….. Can they just let the ghost play since they don’t have to charge the piano player?
