Sitecore site gives a 503 service unavailable message

When attempting to load a Sitecore 8.2 instance on my local machine, the front-end site and Sitecore administration site were returning an error:
HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
An IIS Reset did not appear to fix the issue and the Sitecore logs were not showing anything interesting.

It turns out that the application pool for the site was stopped for some reason. Starting this up allowed the web site to load correctly.
