I think most travelers, such as myself, really appreciate a great hotel room, as this is ultimately what you're paying for. The Helix in DC is in a wonderful location, a funky lobby with a curtain that opens up when you enter the building as well as colored lighting in the hallways (pink, light blue, purple). The service was good too. This is the first Kimpton Hotel I have stayed at (I got a last minute special), and I def. find the chain to be a class act and plan to stay with them regularly; however, I doubt I'll be back to this one. We had a double delux room that was quite decent in size, and the beds were comfortable. The minibar and snack section had cute and whimsical items, which was nice. The bathroom was incredibly small but efficient. There is just something about the hallways, lobby and to some extent the rooms that made we wish they had just stepped it up a little bit more... This is not a place to stay if you appreciate quality over show, or enjoy luxurious accommodations. Plus, the entire place has this very odd green hue to it that was bizarre.
At a great rate, this is a fine place to stay (great location, stylish, comfortable rooms), but I would never pay more than $130 a night TOPS to stay here. That would be overpriced.
