O. M. Gorgeous!
From the moment Poshbrood exited the cab we couldn’t take our eyes off the fabulous design and inviting atmosphere of the Helix Hotel in Washington, DC. Bright colors, modern layouts, and beautiful photography will wow you from check-in to check-out. A visually pleasing arrival – no doubt – but don’t judge this hipster by its cover. They’re not just attracting the cool kids, but the actual kids, too. Kimpton is known at all of their hotels for their all-star treatment for families of all sizes. While getting the room key and taking care of business with the fun and personable Helix staff, the brood are receiving their complimentary loot thanks to the KimptonKids program – a backpack of toys and a coloring book with crayons. Makes life soooooo much easier, doesn't it??
The experience continues in your room with a modern interior and stylish decor. The accommodations will tickle the your fancy for luxury, right down to the Helix logo embossed into the fluffy throw blanket, neatly folded on your king size bed.
And there is no need to compromise bed size just because you need family-friendly space. The Helix offers a fabulous “Bunk Room” floor plan featuring your much needed King and a separate bunk bed area for the offspring, set with a TV and built-in DVD player. Check this out!
Other helpful amenities can be easily provided upon request, such as a crib, baby-proofing items, roll-away beds, strollers, car seats, and even a 24-hour on-call physician! Oh. And you’re definitely going to want to request their accredited babysitting services from around 5:00-6:00pm for the Helix free wine and champagne happy hour, which is just downstairs at the bar in the lobby – Every. Single. Day.
The Helix is conveniently located between Dupont and Logan Circles. So you can get your learn on at the National Geographic Museum which is just 3 blocks away, or check out that beautiful residence at 1600 Pennsylvania – just 7 blocks from the hotel. The Washington Monument, National Mall, Smithsonians, and so many other sights to see are also just a couple miles within your reach, making the Helix the perfect home base for a very educational and fun trip to the nation’s capital. If you call on those amazing babysitters again for an evening on the town, we suggest you check out Dupont Circle for an eclectic neighborhood of galleries, boutiques, and restaurants.
Look at you! Red, white and posh!
