Kimpton really got it right with here. I was never at the Helix, so I can't comment on what it was, but what it is now is near perfect. Even the elevators move quickly. The lobby is well lit and welcoming, with plenty of sitting room to enjoy the evening complimentary wine hour. The staff is incredibly professional, remembers your...

Beautiful hotel and spacious rooms! Very nice accommodations. Was expecting a small boutique hotel but very surprised to have such a big space! Will come here again for sure! Close to the heart of everything DC.

We stayed here recently for one night. It may not be as funky or bold in design as couple of other Kimpton hotels we have stayed at elsewhere nevertheless, it follows a similar lay out that is pleasing. Our room was spacious and bed comfortable. The bathroom with marble flooring is large and has a very good size shower stall;...

I stayed at this hotel in October for the first time and it was a very nice surprise. The rooms were very nice and spacious. I loved that the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash were large bottles and not the small bottles that are normally provided at hotels. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The restaurant was excellent! I...

So, right up front, this hotel is chic. The design is super-smart with clean, simple lines and elegant accoutrements. The hotel restaurant, The Radiator, extends the design and feel seamlessly, with both indoor and outdoor dining. The rooftop "lounge" is relaxing and provides stunning views of D.C. We walked to a nearby restaurant district within minutes, but also passed by...

Great two night stay! My room was roomy. The bathroom and closet spaces are also roomy. Best of all, the hotel staff are the sweetest and most helpful. Very top notch when it comes to customer service. The hotel is located close to a lot of restaurants and night life. You can't go wrong.

Regular trips to DC for both business and pleasure but this trip was more memorable than most. Hotel is chic, service impeccable and concierge incredibly thoughtful. Ask for Maggie at the front desk ! We will be back soon!

Multiple reasons for poor review: 1) Arrived late- took 20 min to check in; gave us one room but it wasn't ready; second room was obviously meant for someone else with dessert and champagne in the room which they later called and asked us to give back 2) told had to have keycard in slot to make electricity and heat...

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days on a work trip to DC. It is relatively new and the design is fresh and original as one expects from a Kimpton property. Check in was easy and my room was spacious and well equipped. I stayed in an executive King Studio which was on a high floor with a nice...
