Good Experience

The pop art style of the hotel was great, although it did photograph a little bit nicer than it actually was. Service was good, the room was clean. They also offered a champagne hour and a hot chocolate bar hour which was a nice addition.

My favorite DC hotel.

The location is the most attractive part. Simple and chic. The bar lounge is nice and relaxing. Rooms are great

Great value in a very friendly atmoshphere

The Helix was a great place to stay! I was upgraded to a suite by a very friendly front desk agent who did not want to put me on the second floor because I was staying 4 nights and it might be a bit noisy. Everything was quite comfortable and welcoming. I wanted to stay for another week.

Friendly very helpful staff

Staying at the Helix was an excellent experience. All of the staff were terrific. It is a very eclectic place not posh. The food and bar are very good and the wine hour meet and greet was great. The room was very comfortable. A fun friendly place.

Good value & location but terrible customer service

A substandard service accompanied by unprofessional stuff (some of them not all to their defense) & untidy room.

My favorite place in DC

I stay here regularly on both business and pleasure. Great location--short walk to Dupont Circle. Around the corner from Whole Foods. Larger than average rooms for DC. Fun. Charming. Free WiFi if you sign up for free Kimpton Hotel membership. A home away from home. Highly recommended.

Great value

For $125 a night on the top floor, the Helix was excellent. The room was spacious and looked very cool. The bed was very comfortable, I had a great night of sleep.
