Room 217It is alleged that Room 217, or rather what happened in it, may have started the strange happenings in the Stanley Hotel. One evening in 1911, a thunderstorm cut the power to the hotel. The story goes that a chambermaid named Elizabeth Wilson entered Room 217 with a lit candle in order to relight the gas lamps. Unbeknown to the unfortunate Elizabeth, there was a gas leak and, as soon as she entered the room, there was a huge explosion. Legend says that this event opened a gateway to another realm or dimension, clearing the way for spirits to enter the hotel.

Mr. Stanley has been seen in the billiards room, in the lobby, and even propping up the bar, while Mrs. Stanley has been heard playing the piano – something for which she was well known when she was alive. A number of guests have reported these strange occurrences. The concert hall is also supposed to be haunted. Some people have said they have heard a voice saying “Get out!” Keys on the piano in this room have been said to move by themselves.
