“Comfortable room, great location for meetings”
Reviewed 10 December 2012 via mobile

I attended a 4 day conference at the Golden last week and my wife accompanied me. The room was nice a nice size with a large desk/work area. There was also a wet bar and small fridge. The decor was up to date and relaxing. The bed was very comfortable with high quality linens.

We ordered room service and had the strip steak dinner and steakhouse burger. Both were good but I really recommend the steakhouse burger! Also try their house potato chips.

The hotel catered breakfast, lunch and snacks each day at our conference and the overall quality and variety was excellent. I especially liked the chef's green chili served with breakfast. It was mild but full of flavor. I think I saw a couple of awards in the lobby that he won in local chili competitions.

The lounge was a great place to hang out in the evenings. On Thursday night there was a live jazz combo which I really enjoyed.

The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Golden and overlooks a creek and park with a jogging trail. There are numerous restaurants and shops extending for several blocks and all within walking distance.

Every interaction that I had with the staff was impressive. Everyone was responsive and friendly and seemed glad to have us there.

I stayed at the Golden Hotel last week. The service was excellent and the room was perfect. A considerable amount of "attention to detail" is apparant everywhere. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Although i did not visit the restaurant, the menu looked delicious. I ran into a banquet server (wish I could remember her name) while searching where a coffee house may be. although she did not know, she made sure I got my information.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have an excellent view.

Most don't go to golden, other than take the Coors tour ( which is good!), but the golden hotel is a gem. Fresh baked cookies, fireplace and a welcome tote Dog guests greet you in the cheery lobby. Most rooms are large and wifi is fast and free. Immaculately clean rooms, well fitted. The workout space is small, but the equipment is first rate and in good condition. And, the town is lovely, full of charm. It was too cold to enjoy a drink outside, but clearly in the summer it must be lovely.
I found the breakfast at the hotel okay, but on 12 th street is the diner that is awesome.

All in all a great stay the raves are right on.

The 5-day stay mid March 2012 at Golden Hotel was everything we could hope. Our large, very clean, comfortable room looked out onto Washington Blvd. We were there for the wedding of our son and his bride Elisabeth.

The wedding took place on the hotel's outside premises adjacent to Clear Creek where we enjoyed a view of the mountains as a backstage for the 6 pm outdoor wedding that unusually warm St. Patrick's evening.

Wedding reception was on 1st floor of hotel with a delicious dinner of ample portions. (We recommend the fish and rice!) Waitstaff were friendly & efficient.The wedding planner provided the warm ambience with dinner music and dancing music thereafter.

The bridal suite was huge and most exquisite. The 2nd floor looks out onto the 1st floor lobby where you found the fireplace, reading material, comfy seating, and public-use computer available 24 hrs. Exercise room on our floor was clean, clean, clean. Public bathroom on main floor clean, clean, clean.

Parking is easy to get to from 1st floor side door of hotel and also by elevator below. The restaurant on the 1st floor provided a great Sunday noon meal and scrumptious homemade desserts that evening.

Great small-town vacation spot in the foothills west of Denver, CO. Note: Concierge/doorman was most helpful. That goes for the lobby desk staff as well.

Room Tip: Our quiet corner room was on 4th or 5th floor overlooking Washington Blvd.

This is one of those properties where you get more than you expect -- on every level. Oversized rooms, amazing beds, great staff, and casual yet high quality food at Bridgewater Grill. The location on the river can't be beat and the creature comforts come with a flair. You can tell the owners care as it all comes from the top down and the staff really seem to love what they do.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great but from several stays, they all seem incredibly spacious. Never any noise i...

we stayed at this property four nights , 10/5,6,7,8,2012, choice based on trip advisor reviews. nice property,good location, easy walking to shops and resturants. easy and ample parking, we had standard king room # 409, on creek side. good bed , brought our own pillows, wife liked the bath and shelf outside the bath. i felt toilet was small, area around sink was also very tight and i am not a big person. there were at least 3 wedding receptions and a childs first birthday party as well as several meetings for various businesses. very active property which i assume indicates locals like it, front desk was efficient ,
in room housekeeping was adequate, the windows however were filthy, inside and out
as well as not closing or locking shut very well, we were on 4th floor so security not an issue. i suggest housekeeping take 5 minutes and wash the windows every so often we tried the resturant once for breakfast on saturday morning after a wedding. the resturant was busy and the service was poor. the server got our order wrong on the first and second effort and billed for item not ordered, which i explained to the hostis and refused to pay. resturant appeared understaffed and inexperienced, breakfast so hard to comment on food quality, little pricey , but paying for convenience so we did not return again. our room was across from what must be a fire station as sirens did interrupt sleep on several occasions . we did receive a government employee discount off the room so the room tariff seemed fair for what we paid.
not trying to be critcal just extending my observations

Room Tip: we stayed on the creek side which has the fire station across the creek a lot of activity o...

My husband and I, along with several friends and family, attended a wedding at the Golden Hotel, staying a total of 3 nights. This was our first time in Golden and we were very pleased with the hotel. The lobby is a comfortable meeting space with a fireplace and grand staircase coming from the 2nd floor....a nice alternative to elevators. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Free parking; small fridge. Restaurant was good for group gatherings. Location is next to a stream with wonderful views of the mountains. Easy walking distance to Coors Brewery Tour and lots of good restaurants and shops. Nice, friendly small town. Easy to get to other Colorado locations.
