What You'll Get
Staying in a haunted hotel affords extra amenities, including automatically turned-on televisions, shirts that iron themselves, and a concierge that can psychologically torment any noisy neighbors. Enjoy some ghostly hospitality with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a one-night stay in a classic queen room and one ticket to the ghost tour at The Stanley Hotel, located in Estes Park (up to a $214 value).
Famous for its inspiration of Stephen King's The Shining and claiming a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, the 101-year-old Stanley Hotel is a bastion of comfort and stateliness, and well-known for its supernatural experiences. The approximately 138-room hotel is surrounded by breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains and the verdant countryside, giving nature buffs and Nebraskans who don’t believe in the existence of mountains a stunning sight from every direction. Most rooms are regaled with 42-inch flat-screen televisions and complimentary WiFi, and lucky lodgers have access to decadent dining and a coffee shop during their stay.
This deal includes a daytime ghost tour, which allows a cozy maximum of 25 tourists and begins with an in-depth overview of the hotel's history before turning towards the metaphysical. Ghost gurus will captivate groups by exploring The Stanley Hotel’s underground tunnel and retelling a multitude of stories about the hotel’s mischievous spirits. If the room is available, the tour may include visits to room 217, where Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining (along with his much less popular, all-canine remake of Citizen Kane).
