The Old West Meets the New at the Golden Hotel

The Golden Hotel - Golden, Colorado

Many people come to Colorado to experience the mountains, and this is something that most popular places to visit in Colorado offer, yet there is another draw for the Colorado travel experience, and that is the appeal of the Old West. Golden, Colorado vacations capture this perfectly. What started as a mining town has blossomed into something that draws people from around the world. It is still home to the Golden School of Mines, which is open to tours and points back to the town’s beginnings as a mining community.

The best places to stay in Golden, Colorado are those that embrace this spirit of the west. As you look for a lodging option, look for one that will bring you to the threshold of the Old West, while still offering the amenities that you would expect from luxury lodging.
