Father of the Bride
The first and one of the best decisions I made during the wedding process. The staff was absolutely terrific. The sales staff was pleasant to work with. These people are very busy. Once the sales staff was finished I worked with a young lady, Amanda Rachocki, who is worthy of distinction. Amanda is the Wedding and Catering Sales Manager. Without fail Amanda always got back to me. She never overpmomised and always and I mean always delivered. You need to understand that this facility might have 5 weddings during any given weekend and as such you need to realize that if you call on a Friday, six months before your wedding, it is quite possible and even probable that it might be early the following week before you get a response. However, Amanda will get back to you. Now if it is near your date you will be well provided for. On a couple of occasions Amanda met with me on site and at least one time she met me on her day off. She was in charge and always responsible, professional, courteous and did everything to make the wedding a success. We had the McGregor Room and a band for the rehearsal/welcome party on a Friday night. Long Peak Lawn for the wedding ceremony, Wonderview Terrace for the post ceremony cocktail party and the Concert Hall with a great band (The Radio Band from Denver) and plated meal for the reception. The food was exceptional (Our guests still rave about the lamb chop appetizers). The food and bar prices were very fair, worth every penny. Amanda and her staff were Incredible to work with during the wedding weekend. They worked well with the band and day of planner. Alex in the group reservations department also was super to work with. She saved the day on several occasions. I can’t stress how nice it was to have all of the activities on the Hotel property. Our guest stayed in a full range of accommodations from 5 bedroom condos to the Lodge, Aspire and the Hotel proper.. I was very pleased with the Presidentiial Cottage with the 5 bedrooms overlooking the wedding venue and it was perfect for the bridal party to get ready. Overall it was a very good experience and I would highly recommend the Stanley Hotel.

This is not 5 Star Review, but Wedding Wire places recent low ranked ones at the bottom. Wished our experience had improved but several issues and poor communication over several months with 3 different staff members who coordinate the venue, the most recent being Amanda resulted in a disappointing experience. No notification that the site where ceremony was held (outside concert hall) was under construction (dirt pile, missing sidewalk)and also was still being painted and wasn’t finished by day of ceremony! Contradictions with pricing. First coordinator gave us a $70 per person quote for reception but by 3rd coordinator it was up to $110. When asked what the difference in extra $40 would be and no clear answer, they backed down to the $70 again. While serving staff was pleasant, the food was extremely lackluster (including both wrong and missing menu items and trying to pass off chilled shrimp for grilled and passing off dry couscous as a creamy, cheesy risotto among other things). The Stanley is resting on its laurels unfortunately. Estes Park is a lovely location for a wedding venue, but our experience planning for daughter’s with The Stanley was disappointing to say the least. Cannot recommend them as a wedding venue.

My fiance and I were married at The Stanely June 4, 2018. It was a perfectly magical ceremony. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous & classy!! Amanda Rachocki, our wedding coordinator was so accommodating. We had to change our wedding venue 1 week before our wedding and she was so helpful & very quick to help us out. She responded to our emails quickly & worked around our schedules to meet with us and book a room for our ceremony. I would highly recommend The Stanley for weddings and any other events, very beautiful. PS The views are out of this world!!!
The Stanley Hotel is one of my favorite wedding venues, not just in Estes Park, but in all of Colorado. Though just a short walk from the hotel, their Longs Peak Lawn (my favorite of their ceremony sites) feels secluded and boasts a magnificent mountain view. The staff are incredible and the setting is divine. If you choose to get married at the Stanley, your wedding will be spectacular!
The Stanley Hotel is by far, one of the best wedding and reception venues in Estes Park. The team at the Stanley are some of the nicest and most accommodating. It is always a pleasure to work with them. I have never had a bad experience when working at The Stanley Hotel and would highly recommend them for your wedding and reception.
After shooting 100's of weddings at the Stanley , we had decided to only shoot weddings of 30 guests and under. We love elopements What I want to say is that no matter if the wedding is 250 people or just 6 people, everyone is treated as if they were the only wedding in the world by the Stanley. I am honored to endorse The Stanley Hotel Randy and melanie Humphrey. ( theperfectportrait.net) the Perfect Portrait
