The Stanley Hotel recently celebrated the re-opening of Highway 34 allowing for easier access and a more direct route to residents of Northeast Colorado and major cities such as Loveland, Fort Collins, Greeley & Cheyenne, among others. 

Part of welcoming guests via an easier route to Estes Park was a promotion where a portion of proceeds raised from guest stays would be donated to Larimer County Search & Rescue. Recently, Stanley Hotel General Manager Knud Svensen presented the Larimer County Search & Rescue team with a check for $2500. 

The Stanley offered 34% off the best available rates for rooms booked in May through the end of the year. 

“We can never forget what our first responders did for our community during the flood in 2013 and what they do every day, said Stanley Hotel General Manager Knud Svensen. “These fearless heroes go where nobody wants to go to save lives all across our area and we are pleased to support them with this donation.

” John Lee, President of Larimer County Search & Rescue added, “LCSAR is extremely grateful to the Stanley for this donation. We are down to ONE emergency response vehicle and we are desperately trying to replace one that is beyond repair. This will greatly help fund that effort.” 

There are many great reasons to come to Estes Park in the summertime; whether it’s Rocky Mountain National Park, the shops and restaurants of downtown Estes Park, and of course, the Historic Stanley Hotel. The re-opening of Hwy. 34 makes for easier access and a great reason to come back!
