"If you're looking to stay in a luxury hotel and don't want to sacrifice snuggling with your cat — you're seriously in luck." - ApartmentTherapy, July 2011

"Where to stay: The funky Hotel Helix offers mini animal-print robes for kids." - Redbook Magazine, July 2011

"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." - Poshbrood, June 2011

"Featuring swanky design and a luxurious atmosphere, Hotel Helix is a welcome sigh of relief for moms constantly sacrificing style for practicality. Helix offers great amenities, including pizza parties, ice cream, games, and accredited babysitting during a lovely free champagne and wine happy hour every evening. Also, Helix is ideally located in Logan/DuPont Circle -- decidedly the coolest area of D.C." - Huffington Post, March 2011

"The modern decor of hard, sleek surfaces and bright colors still manages to feel homey. A bonus for families: Some rooms have bunk beds fitted into an alcove with a second flat-screen TV, so the kids can watch cartoons while parents tune out." - Budget Travel Magazine, February 2011

"The pop-art-style Helix Lounge is a fun, funky space for normally conservative Washington. You'll see light displays, lots of gauzy white curtains, and white patent leather ottomans that light up when you sit down. We guarantee you won't see a strand of pearls on anyone in the room-this is where young, hip Washingtonians come to kick up their heels." - Bridal Guide Magazine, 2011
