Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Incredibly pleasant and responsive staff. Comfortable and large rooms located downtown. Updated technology, and complimentary wi-fi. Lively bar with live music and a great connected restaurant. We will be back here for our next board meeting on Golden and have stayed elsewhere locally. This is my favorite yet.

Traveled from Breckenridge to Red Rocks for concert and didn't want to drive back late at night. We stayed at The Golden Hotel in downtown Golden, Colorado next to the Clear Creek and just blocks from Coors Brewery. Very nice hotel and restaurant, Bridgewater Grill, with outdoor dining and evening music on their outdoor patio next to the banks of the Clear Creek. The staff was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of the area. The waitress, Mikayla, was extremely helpful when we arrived and dined in the restaurant providing information about the hotel, area and recommendations. The hotel is walking distance to several other restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and the Coors Brewery. Also, very convenient to the Red Rocks Amphitheater for later night concerts. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel, restaurant and location.

Room Tip: Rooms on the fourth floor facing the Clear Creek

We made reservation 6 months in advance for four rooms of which one room was cancelled a month before we arrived. When we arrived we did not get the ajoining rooms requested and they cancelled a room with two double beds, which the king room should had been the one cancelled. To make it worst, the staff continually treated us like they could have cared less that several adults would have to sleep on the floor because of there mistake. Their answer was that may be some other hotels that might be able to accomodatate us if we wanted to make some phone calls. (oh yea, they would hold us to the 3pm cancellation policy if we could find somewhere else to stay). I understand that they were booked, but we arrived shortly after 3pm they could have done something to make this right becuase they knew were on motorcycles and moving to another hotel was not an option. This was the last leg of our 12 day trip and wanted to spend the night in a great hotel....bad choice on our part. ONE PLUS - the staff at the resturant was fanastic as was the food, this was the only thing about this hotel that put a smile on our face.

WE stay at The Golden Hotel at least a few times a year and have have been coming here for the four years our son has been attending the Colorado School of Mines. The accommodations are superb, the service and service staff are always courteous and extremely helpful and hospitable. Located on Clear Creak, right at the foot of Washington Street in the charming town of Golden,and close to the Colorado School of Mines makes the Golden Hotel an outstanding destination. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Not having had much choice in this city, we choose to stay there.
The inside definitely looks much nicer then the industrial outside.
The front desk does not give you any hospitality feeling, impossible to have diner (even as a hotel guest, suggested waiting time over 1.5 h).
Airconditioning in the rooms very noisy. Fitness very very small indeed.
Breakfast only à la carte, no buffet - expect to pay at least 20$.
Check out absolutely emotion-free (who cares when a guest leaves??)
Information about local area? "Go over to the tourist office, they have things" - is that hospitality you would expect for a pricy hotel?
Granted, Golden is not a cheap place. I don't mind paying top dollar for top service - not the case here.

Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel during your recent trip to Golden, Colorado. We consider guest service to be of the upmost importance and exceeding guest expectations is what we strive to accomplish each and every day. Our team members take great pride in providing exceptional service to each and every guest, so I am quite disappointed that you experienced anything less than that during your stay. Our in-house restaurant the Bridgewater Grill is extremely popular and accordingly will occasionally experience long wait times (however the views and food are well worth it!). Again, we apologize for your experience, but hope you will give you another opportunity if you find yourself in beautiful Golden.

We pulled into this hotel at 8pm after driving 13 hours from our home town. The last thing we wanted want any hiccups or problems and we got none... Just a friendly check in, quick keys and a great nice room. Free Internet, clean and in a very cute part of the Denver area.

We were too tired to think about driving to find a restaurant so we decided to try the one in the hotel, as we checked in we noticed there was a bit of a line (Friday night) so the hostess offered to take our name and call us in the room when our table was ready. This was perfect. I will say the food in the restaurant was good, there was an oddly upscale Denny's feeling to the decor but the food was great ... You must try the smoked trout app. Very nice.

Coffee in the lobby in the morning was very good and for a place to crash for the night, can't be beat.
