Special ultra-mod boutique hotel
Done in what it describes as "Hollywood Style," Hotel Helix is a unique and funky place to stay in D.C. Just as the Logan 'hood was undergoing a renaissance, the Kimpton chain took over this once dreary concrete hotel, and made it one of the coolest in the whole city, with a swanky, creative bar/lobby that is home to many gay events. The rooms themselves have been done over in campy/stylish mode and offer more space than most D.C. apartments. The rooms are are bright and pet-friendly, featuring an honor bar with tons of candy. In-room spa treatments available.
