Bottom line up front: unless you're a very sound sleeper, insist on a room on the north or west sides of the hotel or choose the Denver West Marriott 5-10 miles away.
Nice hotel--Marriott/Sheraton/Hilton class. The location is outstanding in a few ways: right on beautiful Clear Creek, on the main drag in town, within walking distance of just about everything you'd want to do in Golden. However, that's great for the daytime. At night, you're on the main drag in a college town. The windows in the hotel aren't high-quality and a lot of noise gets through. We heard at least four drag races, numerous loud drunks, wind, and even normal conversations from the street even though we were on the third floor--and the noise didn't stop until well after 1:00 A.M. The air conditioner doesn't let you set the fan to "always on" so you couldn't even try to drown out the racket with white noise.
While it's nice, we've stayed several times in the Denver West Marriott about 5-10 miles away. It's equally nice, except for the on-creek restaurant bar at the Golden Hotel, and less than half the price. That's where we'll stay on our next trip to Golden.
