Helix, a Kimpton Hotel
Lonely Planet review
Modish and highlighter bright, the Helix is playfully hip – the perfect hotel for the bouncy international set that makes up the surrounding neighborhood. Little touches suggest a youthful energy (Pez dispensers in the minibar) balanced with worldly cool, like the pop-punk decor – just camp enough to be endearing. Specialty rooms include Bunk (that’s right, bunk beds) and studios with kitchenettes; all rooms have comfy, crisp-sheet beds and 37in flat-screen TVs. As part of the Kimpton Hotels family, with the requisite free evening wine hour and morning coffee, Helix is the group’s eccentric standout. It’s an easy walk to the food and drink bounty at either the U St Corridor or Dupont Circle.
Our independent authors have visited Helix, a Kimpton Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Washington, DC.
