Yes...but the hotel that inspired the movie is in Colorado. It is said to be haunted. I am not sure if any of the filming was done inside the actual hotel or not.

Stephan King stayed in this Hotel and then wrote the book. So I guess it actually inspired the book that came before the movie. Here is a hint: don't get all steamed over this.

Can you name this place, and the movie that goes with it?


I think I posted that exact same photo a few years ago here in the what's this picture game.

Nice find, or did you take it?

My cat, sprawled out on hubby's legs. Hubby has a 36" inseem. This is and the fact that he's a little heat machine is probably why he can comandeer the greater part of the bed.
