The Eddy Taproom & Hotel, located along the banks of Clear Creek in Golden, CO., is scheduled to open June 1, 2021. The 49-room boutique hotel is located on the site of the old Golden Fire Brick Company and will celebrate the mining history of the region and the abundance of outdoor adventures found in Golden. With two dining concepts, two rooftop patios and walking distance to outdoor pursuits, The Eddy is a gateway to Golden and the Colorado Rockies.
“The name, The Eddy Hotel, pays homage to the outdoor lifestyle that Golden is known for,” said hotel General Manager John Drugan. “Eddies are rest stops along the river for kayakers and whitewater rafters. We’ve taken this idea where outdoor adventure meets rest and relaxation to create a hotel that’s fun, lively, comfortable and welcoming.”
To celebrate the opening of the hotel, The Eddy is encouraging guests to Adventure Longer this summer with a special offer that starts at $209 per night. Stay four nights at The Eddy and receive a $50 resort credit good for onsite culinary offerings such as Truck Eddy, The Taproom and room service, or use the credit for an outdoor adventure with one of the hotel’s many rock climbing, hiking or rafting partners.
The offer also includes a complimentary in-room morning adventure prep, or evening recovery amenity packed with items needed for the day, such as sunscreen and Chapstick, or an energy drink upon return to help guests recovery, and a custom beer stein as part of The Eddy’s Mug Club.
Where casual adventure fans might opt to simply Adventure Longer, hard core outdoor enthusiasts might prefer The Gold Experience. This vacation includes everything an adventurer would need to explore the Rockies from gear to guides and everything in between starting at $20,000. The five-night offer includes:
- Two mountain bikes from Golden-based Yeti Cycles that can be tested out during a guided biking tour of nearby North Table Mountain
- Paragliding experience for two via Paraglide Tandem of Golden
- Private helicopter tour via Geo Heli Denver Helicopter Charters
- A 105-mile exotic car tour via Oxotic in Golden
If that’s not enough, rest and relax with private massages on one of The Eddy’s rooftop patios. The Gold Experience also includes culinary offerings with a private half day rock climbing experience with Golden Mountain Guides that ends at sunset followed by beer or barrel aged cocktails in The Taproom. Guets also can select from a private mixology class on the hotel’s west roof patio, or create a custom craft beer blend with Golden City Brewery’s brewmaster.
If guests just want to see how beer is made, The Gold Experience includes a VIP tour of Coors Brewing Company, which is located a short drive from the hotel. On the final night, guests can get a private dinner on top of Lookout Mountain that is personally catered by The Eddy’s Executive Chef Ben Shapiro. The experience includes star gazing with telescopes and a personal constellation specialist.
Truck Eddy, the property’s food truck, will feature a selection of barbecue and shakes that can be enjoyed on nearby picnic tables, on the outdoor lawn or in the comfort of a guest room. The Taproom will offer a mountain menu that focuses on seasonal, Rocky Mountain local ingredient paired with any of the eight craft beers on tap.
The property also will include a fitness center as well as two rooftop patios with views of the surrounding mountains. For groups, meetings and social functions, the property will offer flexible, customized space for intimate gatherings and relaxed meetings.
The Eddy promises to capture the history and spirit of Golden, which was founded in 1859 and was the territorial capitol of Colorado from 1862 until 1867. It was originally called “Golden City,” because it was a supply center for miners of the region during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush.
Located in an area of spectacular natural beauty, Golden is where the mountains meet the plains in the Clear Creek Valley. The town is completely surrounded by high points. To the east are two high mesas with the foothills to the west, dominated by Mount Zion and Lookout Mountain. Lookout Mountain can be climbed by car, the others by trails. Clear Creek flows directly through the town and is lined with paved bike and hiking trails.
Golden is one of Colorado’s oldest and most historic towns and is filled with a large number of historic buildings. The town occupies approximately eight square miles and is located 12 miles west of Denver at an official elevation of 5,675 feet above sea level. The Eddy is located walking distance from downtown Golden which can easily be accessed via a bike path along Clear Creek.
