We stayed at the Helix for just one night (my wife and kids had been there before) and had a great time. Smackdab in the 14th Street district, there is plenty of food and some shopping to choose from, although the recession has hit a few smaller boutique stores hard- a cherished chocolate shop closed since our last visit. The rooms are fun and different and all decorated with a 60's Worhal-ian sensibility. Free wine and champagne at 5 and free coffee in the morning, and PLENTY of dog owners passing through the small lobby with their leashed pets.
It's located right next to the Studio Theater where we saw a friend in an excellent play and there is a Whole Foods right up the street for supplies. 3/4 of a mile walk to the mall. All in all a great place for couples, pet owners, and families looking for fun at a reasonable cost.
