Fear you might be suffering from cubicle-induced cabin fever? Get out of town with this week's Escape to The Stanley Hotel, the historic Estes Park property made famous for inspiring Stephen King's heart-stopping novel The Shining.
Set against the otherworldly monolithic rocks outside Rocky Mountain National Park, this white grand dame is offering a two-night stay stay for two in a Classic Room ($214). Two-night stays will also earn a $50 dining credit to the on-site Cascades.
Scare up an additional $100 and upgrade to a Haunted Room, Manor, or Suite, if available upon booking, for a truly spine-tingling stay.
Each spacious Classic Room offers courtyard or Rocky Mountain views and is elegantly appointed with a pillow-top king or queen bed and a 42-inch flat-screen TV.
Room 217 is celebrated as the most spirited sleeping quarters, but even if you don't stay there, you can pop in for a heart-pounding visit during a daily tour, where you'll also burrow through a secret underground tunnel and learn all about this hotel's spooky 102-year history.
Or, just lounge around the grand lobby, where you might be inspired to write the next great novel. With free Wi-Fi and an on-site coffee shop, Steamers Cafe, you'll have plenty of resources to get you started.
Then, instead of heading out into the freezing cold, enjoy dinner at the romantic Cascades, where you'll dine on Colorado-inspired cuisine.
Top off your spirited stay with a nightcap in the hotel bar (we promise the employees are not figments of your imagination).
Even if you're not spooked by the supernatural, it'll be hard to believe your eyes as you bask in the haunting beauty of this gorgeous hotel.
