I was spending three nights for an event we had in the same hotel. Rooms are very spacious. My room door was directly facing the lobby which turned out to be a bit of a noise problem with noisy people late at night. Loved the creek next to the hotel which is a great runners trail. Very friendly staff.

The rooms are well appointed but somewhat compact. The staff is well trained and polite. Parking can be problematic if there is an event. The bar was good with all of the variations and brands you could want as long as it was in the Coors stables. The restaurant was not well managed and the food was average. The good... More

We stayed at the Golden Hotel back in August for 3 nights. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. The restaurant and bar are fabulous and they have great live music. We would stay there in a heart beat again! Love it!!

This hotel is one of my favorites. The staff here is always so friendly and the hotel itself is beautiful. If you can splurge and get a suite they are on the corner of the hotel with beautiful views of clear creek and the surrounding mountains. The food in the restaurant was very good I personally had the St Louis... More

We were traveling west with our dog, and pet-friendly options were the usual chains. The Golden was a nice exception to the rule. Upon checking in we got a "doggie bag" with all sorts of treats for our pooch including a travel water bowl and a roll of bags for our walks. Right outside the door is a riverside trail... More

We had a short vacation (3 nights) in Golden. The hotel was conveniently located and very clean. Our double-queen room faced street side which was a little noisy as there was road construction, but the hotel itself was quiet with no problems sleeping! We were offered fresh cookies when checking in, and the robes were a nice surprise!! The staff... More

I-70 was closed due to snow so we holed up in Golden at The Golden Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised: the room was large and well-furnished, there was a shower mat (we are terrified of slipping in tubs/showers), the soap, shampoo, conditioner dispensers were not the disposable type but nice, re-fillable dispensers, there was a board you could put on...

Stayed at the Golden Hotel for 2 night with my wife and 5 year old son. Its a nice business hotel in the downtown area. The rooms are average. The room had a A/C unit also used for heating that was quite noisy. I remembered to turn it off the 2. night.

Staff was helpful, full of smiles and offers to assist however. Huge spacious room, newly remodeled, right next to Clear Creek, parks, walking / biking path and "old-town/ down-town" Golden. Nearby activities for all ages - train museum, quilt museum, Colorado School of MInes, hiking and biking paths.
