This was at least our 5th or 6th time staying at the Helix and we just love it! We were in DC for an extended weekend see 2 specific art exhibits (Rockwell at the Portrait Gallery and Arcimboldo at the National Gallery). We travel with our 2 dogs and that is how we found the Helix to begin with. When we arrived we were welcomed back and our request for a room on a lower floor was respected in addition they upgraded us to a suite (sweeeet!!). We got to our room and got settled by then it was about 4:45 so we went downstairs for the complimentary wine - love it! And who was serving the wine ~ James Adamson (Helix General Manager), we were so happy to meet him! What a wonderful way to start a fun weekend! The rooms are simple, modern, clean with super comfy beds with great soap and lotion! The next day we got up and had a yummy hot breakfast in the Helix Lounge. It included assorted breads/pastry, fresh fruit, juice, coffee/tea, cereal, yogurt, eggs, bacon and sausage. The Helix is a 10 story building in a neighborhood setting. We walked down to the National Geographic Museum and then off to the mall. About 2:00pm we got some subs for lunch and took a taxi back to the hotel ($6.00 or so). We love DC and the Helix is our place to stay! We will be back!
