Make Like a “Mad Men” Character in Washington DC


We’re a little mad for Mad Men. In fact, if you offered us extra office space in Sterling Cooper Draper Price on Madison Avenue, we’d probably move right in. Until then, we’ll take the next best thing: the Mad Men-themed package at Kimpton’s Hotel Helix in Washington DC.

Helix’s new “Mad About Washington” package offers you a taste of the Don Draper lifestyle. That’s thanks in part to the hotel’s retro vibe, great cocktails and swank, yet playful, guestrooms (their mini bars are even stocked with nostalgic candy like PEZ, Pop Rocks and red wax lips!).

Additionally, the package includes the following:

·         Deluxe accommodations in the Helix Suite, the hotel’s best guestroom
·         2 cocktails at adjacent Helix Lounge (an Old Fashioned, perhaps?)
·         Complimentary shoe shine and overnight dry cleaning, to stay spiffy the next day

Rates start from $209 per night, and are based on availability.

You’d be mad to miss it. 


Hotel Helix’s “Mad About Washington” Package is available from April 7 – June 30, but must be booked by April 30. To make a reservation, visit and use rate code MADMEN or call (800) 706-1202 and ask for the “Mad About Washington” Package. Find the hotel in the Arts District at 1430 Rhode Island Avenue, within walking distance of Dupont Circle.
