Hotel is the fictional hotel from Stephen
King's novel The Shining and its adaptations.
Timberline Lodge, a mountain resort in Oregon,
was used in Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of
the book while the Stanley Hotel, King's inspiration
for the Overlook, was used in a TV adaptation
Hotel lies nestled among the foothills in
the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, 70 miles
north of Denver, Colorado. The Stanley Hotel
in Estes Park, Colorado, USA was built by
Freelan O. Stanley (1849 - 1940), and opened
in 1909. Stanley and his wife Flora had been
sent West by F.O. Stanley’s doctor to
seek the fresh mountain air. Stanley, who
suffered tuberculosis, had been advised to
not make plans beyond six months. The doctor
arranged for the couple to stay in a friend’s
cabin in Estes Park for the summer. Immediately,
they fell in love with the area and F.O.’s
health began to dramatically improve. Stanley
created the Stanley Steam Engine (a steam-powered
horseless carriage) and, along with his twin
brother Francis Edgar Stanley, founded the
Stanley Steamer Company.

is a reality television series produced by
Pilgrim Films featuring Jason Hawes and Grant
Wilson, Roto-Rooter plumbers who investigate
claimed hauntings and ghosts as the creators
of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS).
The show debuted in
October 2004 on the American Sci-fi Channel.
It should not be confused
with the original 1996 Inca Productions show
Ghosthunters produced for the Discovery Channel.
The format was sold to the US to become Ghost
Hunters. The only remaining link between the
two shows is presenter Ian Cashmore who anchored
the UK/Europe show. Cashmore piloted the US
show, but chose not to remain part of the
US venture after he filmed the promos.
Ghost Hunters has attracted
various critics and skeptics. Some feel that
the episodes put too much emphasis on the
melodrama between various TAPS members instead
of focusing on the paranormal investigations.
Others debate the scientific validity of the
investigations conducted by the TAPS team,
and contend that shows such as Ghost Hunters
blur the line between reality and fantasy.

Hawes summed it up perfectly: “I’m
telling ya, there’s a lot more than
meets the eye at The Stanley.”
Stanley Hotel Real Ghosts
In addition to its regular
guests, the hotel is also said to play host
to a number of otherworldly visitors. The
most notable is F.O. Stanley himself, who
is most often seen in the lobby and the Billiard
Room, which was his favorite room when he
was alive. On one such occasion, he was said
to have appeared during a tour group’s
visit to the Billiard Room, materializing
behind a member of the tour. Bartenders at
the old hotel also report having seen F.O.
stroll through the bar, disappearing when
they try to cut him off at the kitchen.
Not to be left out, Flora
Stanley also haunts the hotel, continuing
to entertain guests with her piano playing
in the ballroom. Employees and guests have
reported hearing music coming from the room,
and when they take a peek into the room they
can see the piano keys moving. However, as
soon as someone walks across the threshhold
to investigate further, the music stops and
no more movement can be seen upon the keys
of the piano.
Room 418 gets the most reports
of haunting activity, apparently from children’s
spirits. Cleaning crews report having heard
many strange noises from the room, as well
as seeing impressions on the bed when the
room has been empty. When guests stay in the
room, they often report that they hear children
playing in the hallway at night. One couple
reportedly checked out of the hotel very early
in the morning, complaining that the children
in the hallway kept them up all night. However,
there were no children booked in the hotel
at the time. There have also been many reports
by guests of haunting activities in Rooms
217 and 401. On a visit to The Stanley with
his wife, Stephen King stayed in Room 217,
where he swore that after their arrival and
a quick dinner, they returned to the same
room to find that their clothes and boxes
had been arranged neatly in the closet. None
of the hotel staff had stepped into their
room that evening.
Tour guides tell a story
of the ghost of a small child who has been
seen by many of the staff in various areas
of the old hotel. Reportedly, Stephen King
also saw the child, who was calling out to
his nanny on the second floor. Other past
employees report footsteps and apparitions
seen throughout the building. However, it
is not simply the hotel proper that is haunted;
ghostly activity has been reported in all
three buildings. There are frequent reports
of activity on the 4th floor, which reportedly
was once employee quarters. Guests repeatedly
complain of hearing children running and playing
in the hallways on this floor, only to discover
that no children are staying at the hotel.
There are several rooms in the hotel that
seem to be particularly haunted. One is Room
407, which is said to sometimes be occupied
by Lord Dunraven, who owned the land prior
to F.O. Stanley. Reportedly, he likes to stand
in the corner of the room near the bathroom
door. On one such account, witnesses reported
that a light in that corner kept turning on
and off. While the light was off, they told
the ghost that they knew that he was there,
they would only be staying two nights, and
would he please turn the light back on. The
light turned back on. However, later when
the lights were turned off and they were trying
to sleep, noises were constantly heard from
the nearby elevator during a time when the
elevator was not in use. At other times, a
ghost has been reported to be looking out
the window of Room 407, when the room is not
Room 1302 in the manor has
been difficult for housekeeping, as they often
make up the room only to come back later and
find it a mess again. The windows on the second
floor of the manor apparently go up and down
on their own. Footsteps can be heard in the
concert hall, where a homeless woman who had
sought refuge in the basement froze to death
one winter. There is also reportedly also
a girl named Katie who haunts the boiler room
and downstairs employee passage.

unfathomable powers to hypnotize and terrify
readers, a power King had in abundance in

Former teacher and alcoholic Jack Torrance
(Nicholson) interviews for a caretaker job
at the Overlook Hotel in an effort to rebuild
his life after his volatile temper lost him
a teaching position. The hotel manager, Mr.
Ullman, warns Jack that he and his family
will be snowbound through most of the winter
and of the potential for cabin fever. He drives
the point home by recounting a season when
the caretaker, Charles Grady, went crazy and
brutally killed his wife, his twin girls,
and finally himself. Given his own desperation
and the opportunity to pursue his true passion,
writing, Jack acknowledges the warning, but
accepts the job. Head chef Dick Hallorann
(Scatman Crothers) instantly recognizes that
Jack's son Danny is telepathic, and speaks
to him mentally to offer him an ice cream.
He explains that he and his grandmother both
had the gift; because pictures sent telepathically
seemed to glow, she referred to this communication
as "shining." He also counsels Danny
about the hotel, hinting that something terrible
had happened there and left a trace, "as
if someone burned toast," that only people
who had the gift could perceive. Danny questions
Dick about what went on in the hotel and in
room 237. Dick does not answer, but sternly
warns Danny to stay out of that room.
