MY "HAUNTED" 4TH FLOOR ROOM
Book the Stanley Hotel's "Ghost Adventure Package" and stay in a room on the fourth floor, the entirety of which is supposedly haunted. Included is a glow-in-the-dark squishy ghost, a "REDRUM" mug, and a K2 EMF Meter. For the record, all my meter detected was the ghost of Philips Norelco, as the only time it registered more than a single light was when I tested it on my electric shaver.
Photos below from all four corners of Room 412. Channel 42 plays Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" on a continuous loop 24 hours a day. During the festival, a cut of the movie playing forwards and backwards simultaneously ran in its place (see the documentary "Room 237" for more about the forwards/backwards version).
Below: The view from 412's window, a closer look at the vintage photograph on the wall, and a grape Tootsie Pop resting on the fire extinguisher in the hallway. Staff members reportedly leave candy strewn about the hotel to appease resident ghost children. Or drunk hotel guests looking for a late night snack after stumbling in from the downstairs bar.
THE STANLEY HOTEL INTERIOR
For aficionados who recall key scenes from "The Shining," here is a look at the hotel's actual carpet, men's room, and main bar. While there is currently not a bartender named Lloyd, the bar does offer over five hundred whiskeys starting at $6 and running up to $265 a serving.
Above: The Stanley Hotel lobby. Below: Various photographs adorning the walls. A hotel employee swore that one day, the woman sitting in the center of the old lobby photograph on the left turned and looked at her.
Displayed on the lower level is the child-size dollhouse used in Mick Garris' 1997 ABC-TV miniseries adaptation of "The Shining," which was shot in and around The Stanley Hotel.
