A serious step-up in room quality for Downtown, Golden's fresh, modern rooms are tiny but come with blue-tiled contemporary bathrooms and good facilities: fridge, satellite TVs, and (miracles never cease) a decent amount of powerpoints. Splash an extra US$10 to grab a recently refurbished room in the new wing for way more space and funky burnt-orange walls with stone accents.
When we stopped by last, the roof terrace was being renovated to create a cool bar area.
