The nearest major airport is in Denver. There is an RTD Station a few miles from the venue. To get there from the airport requires taking multiple buses/trains and takes over 2 hours, but is doable if you don’t want to rent a car. It’s about a 40-50 minute drive if you do rent a car. You could also look into getting an Uber. You’ll probably want one to get from the RTD into town. There is also plenty of parking in Golden.
We have a block of rooms at the Golden Hotel, right across the street for $209/night. To book those, call them at 303-279-0100 and tell them you are with GDevCon NA before July 4th. These are the cheapest and closest rooms. A few people have reported issues where the front desk was unaware of our deal. If you have any issues with registration mention Alex Mikula. If that doesn’t work, let us know.
