The Overlook Hotel is a fictional hotel in the novel the Shining by Stephen King. It is located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, United States. The hotel has a history of violence and murders, which are attributed to the ghosts of the previous owners and guests who have died there.
In the novel, the hotel is owned by Jack Torrance, who becomes its caretaker in the winter. Jack’s wife, Wendy, and their son, Danny, accompany him to the hotel. Danny has a psychic ability known as “the shining” allowing him to see the future and communicate with the hotel’s ghosts.
The family is isolated at the hotel during a snowstorm, and Jack gradually becomes possessed by the ghosts of the hotel, who want him to kill his family so that they can “live” again. Danny uses his shining ability to warn Wendy, and they escape from the hotel before Jack can kill them.
An explosion later destroys the hotel, but the ghosts of its previous owners and guests remain.
In the 1980 film adaptation of the novel, the hotel is called the Overlook Hotel. It is located in the state of Oregon instead of Colorado.
The hotel has been a popular setting for other works of fiction, including the 1997 novel Rose Madder by Stephen King and the 2007 horror film 1408, starring John Cusack.
The carpet in the Overlook Hotel is one of the most iconic aspects of the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining. The carpet, an orange and brown paisley pattern, is featured prominently throughout the film, appearing in many key scenes.
While the carpet in the film is a prop, it is based on a real carpet that was once installed in the Stanley Hotel, the real-life hotel that served as the inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in the novel. William Leigh and installation designed the carpet began in 1909.
