Stay at the Helix!

The Hotel Helix is a fun, comfortable, convenient hotel located in a quiet neighborhood in DC. It is an easy walk to downtown attractions but allows the visitor to escape the hustle and bustle of staying immediately in the downtown area. The hotel staff is WONDERFUL and the accommodations are not only comfortable but lively and fun. I will never stay anywhere else in DC unless it is a nother Kimpton property.

Funky hotel with great service

Comfortable rooms, funky atmosphere, and amazingly friendly and helpful staff. And join the Kimpton club for free stuff from the mini-bar! Convenient to good ethnic restaurants.

good location

The Helix Klimptom had a lovely room nice size. Hotel lobby could have been more roomy very crowded trying to check in.Location near Dupont circle convenient for good dining and most areas were walkable to.

Highly recommend

The rooms were extra large and uniquely decorated. There was free wine everynight between 5:00 and 6:00 P.M. Good location, walking distance to Metra, restaurants and trolley ride. Downtown sights were walkable if you enjoy walking. Nice neighborhood.

hotel Helix- a great stay!

The Hotel Helix in Washington DC was a unique and fun place to stay. We really enjoyed the opportunity to sit on the couch and watch tv. The decor and room layout was different and very cool.

While staying at the Hotel Helix, we were able to access the Smithsonian very easily, either by a long walk or a short cab drive.

Funky hotel in a great part of town

We booked this hotel because of it's advertised rates and advice from friends who had once stayed here. The place has a unique retro feel--very colorful and lively with interesting furniture and art that doesn't exactly fit any period. It's hip and casual, but very clean and nicely arranged. The location is close to the whole strip of 14th street with restaurants and shops, and not far from Dupont Circle. And Zentan--a real find--is two blocks away. A great place and a great value.
