Before my trip, I wasn’t sure if I’d have internet access at the Stanley Hotel, but I do. Pretty fast stuff, too.
Anyways, we got to the Hotel yesterday and now it’s morning here. My mom and I walked around the grounds, got accustomed to the place (it really is big), ate dinner at the restaurant they have in the hotel, and went on the ghost tour (which was a bit Grunkle Stan-ey of a tour, if you know what I mean, but it was informative).
Our room is 209. Not a particularly famous room, but after a quick search online people who’ve stayed in this room said they’ve had weird activity and Stephen King’s room 217 is just down the hall.
Here are pictures from yesterday:
(lol @ the Gideons)
(there’s the view from the plaza in front of the hotel)
(there’s the back of the hotel and the Cascades restaurant down to the left underneath the red canopy)
(here’s the view of Prospect Mountain from the back garden)
(here’s Lucy’s room - apparently she was a vagrant who broke into the hotel during the Winter and camped out in this room. After they found her and kicked her out, it’s said that she died out in the cold outside the hotel. That guy to the right is our tour guide.)
I have a LOT more pictures, but I don’t want to spam your guys’ dash with them. I’ll probably do a masterpost at the end of this trip.
Also, I realized we have TV in our room, so I know what I’m going to be watching tonight. :D
