My stay was better the last year....

Posted 15-Apr-2015
Pros: The location.
Cons: The friendliness of the staff.
Location: It's in a wonderful location near everything: transportation, great restaurants, and shopping.
My experience was just ok this time. It was my birthday and I was expecting something special like an upgraded room or a better room location. I could hear water flushing all night and we had a great few of the rooftop. The bathroom floor tile was cracked and rocked when we walked on it. The check in was really unfriendly and it was like he didn't have time for us. Also, the bar on Friday night was understaffed it took us 45 minutes to get a piece of cake. Oh... to top it all off, my husband killed a giant roach in the bathroom!! I love this location, but I think we will try another hotel next time. I can say that they did give me a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and chocolates.

Pros: Location
Cons: Didn't stay long enough to say that there were things that needed improving. Not the cleanest or newest hotel, but a quality stay
Location: 14th street. Georgetown is probably a short cab ride away as well.
Not too familiar with DC but stayed and extra night after a work trip. 14th street is filled with restaurants and shops and seems to be an IT neighborhood. The Helix is a few short steps from 14th street which is very walkable. On the one night I stayed there was a wine HH from 5PM-6PM which offered free glasses of wine served by the staff. Guy pouring the wine was super cool and personable. All and all I'd say this is a great place to stay if you want somewhere close. It's more of a trendy vibe so if you don't find that of interest or can't appreciate the style you might be better suited somewhere else.

DOG FRIENDLY HOTEL

Posted 23-Feb-2015
Pros: NICE STAFF- DOG FRIENDLY
Cons: CLEANER-MORE ATTENTION TO DETAILS OF CLEANING
Location: LOTS OF RESTAURANTS AND BARS- NOT CONVENIENT TO VISITING MUSEUMS OR GOVT. BUILDINGS OF INTEREST.
STAFF WERE GREAT WITH DOGS, ROOMS WERE FINE, DECORATED-CUTE SOMEWHAT COMFORTABLE. THERER WAS NO LIGHT IN THE HALL WHERE THE DRESSER WAS LOCATED. THE ROOM WAS NOT CLEAN - LIGHTS AND CERTAIN THINGS IN THE ROOM LOOKED INCREDIBLY UNCLEAN. THE LOBBY WAS ENJOYABLE, LIVELY AND INVITING. THE LOCATION IS CONVENIENT TO 14TH STREET BUT NOT TO WHITE HOUSE AND OTHER GOVT. BUILDINGS.

Interesting hotel, walking distance to monuments!

Posted 13-Feb-2015
Pros: The hotel was clean, convenient to our previously booked plans, and in a safe neighborhood.
Cons: The amenities were a bit out dated (rust in the bathtub and an older bathroom sink)
Location: The National Mall was great, the monuments, International Spy Museum, Verizon Center, Smithsonian, many other museums
This hotel has a lot of character. You instantly feel transported out of the busy streets of DC to a more modern, gardenesque place. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We were able to fully enjoy a full weekend in DC thanks to their flexibility. The hotel was clean and while we were unable to make it to the free wine happy hour, it was definitely appealing when booking!

Great retro style hotel in a great location!

Posted 06-Feb-2015
Pros: Location and retro design!
Location: Great restaurants and bars. It is very close to Churchkey which is the best beer spot in DC and also Commissary which is a fantastic breakfast spot.
Stayed here for a night in the city. Great location for lots of good spots up and down 14th street area. Did not use the lounge or fitness center at all. Love the retro decor of the rooms. Would definitely stay here again.

Unusual Hotel

Posted 05-Feb-2015
Pros: The decor is really neat.
Location: Convenient to everything and on a quiet street.
Good location. Decor is unusual. Staff is very friendly. I left my Kindle there and when I called housekeeping had it and made arrangements to return it to me. Breakfast is adequate.
