Hotel Helix Review

A hip vibe prevails in these contemporary-style guest quarters with flat screens, colorful furnishings, and huge photos of surfing scenes and pop-culture icons ranging from Little Richard to Jackie O to Martin Luther King Jr. The Helix Lounge serves American comfort food and movie nights are often held on the Helix Lounge Patio, a popular summertime hangout. Some suites have bunk beds and Wii games for kids.
