The Stanley Hotel and Conference Center

(trivia... the scene at the beginning of The Shining, a helicopter shot of the approach to the hotel, is the same film used in the final scene of the theater version of Bladrunner.)

This is not the hotel form 'the shining'. This is the hotel that inspired Stephen King. The hotle in the movie is the Timberline lodge on mt. Hood, Oregon.

It looks like they used to promote themselves as The Shining hotel. It is the location of the 1996 remake. They once sold Shining stuff in the gift shop and has a Shining museum. Thart is all gone now, perhaps they got a cease and desist.

They usesd timberline lodge to record the external parts (outsidd) and inside they got ideas from the awahnee hotel to help create the inside of the hotel on sets and The Stanley hotel was where Stephen king got the idea

The Stanley hotel was used in filming the television mini-series, not Kubrick's film.
