The Hotel Helix, a Kimpton property, is offering travelers to Washington, DC, a Ron Burgundy-inspired "Stay Classy" package now through August 2014. The hotel package includes deluxe accommodations in the trendy Logan Circle neighborhood, two scotches at the Helix Lounge, two tickets to Anchorman: The Exhibit at the Newseum, and a felt mustache and comb to ensure guests are always camera-ready.
The Stay Classy package is even extended to four-legged guests like Burgundy's dog, Baxter; the property is pet-friendly with no fees or restrictions. The Hotel Helix does reserve a pet-free floor for guests with allergies as well as provide a loaner goldfish to guests who left their furry friends at home.
Anchorman: The Exhibit features props, costumes and footage from the 2004 film, including Burgundy's dog, Baxter, or at least a stuffed replica of him. Fans of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy will also recognize Burgundy's iconic business suit, license plate, jazz flute and mustache brush.

The exhibit is not all laughs, though. It explores the challenges women have encountered in the newsroom–challenges which are examined with humor in the film.
The Newseum, a 250,000-square-foot museum dedicated to the news industry, is located 15 blocks from the Hotel Helix and is easily accessible from the McPherson Square metro station, just four blocks from the hotel.
The Hotel Helix is fun and funky with a mod vibe. The hotel features 178 colorful and spacious guest rooms, including 18 oversized suites and 12 specialty rooms, like bunk bed rooms that are perfect for families. In addition, the hotel provides essential accessories for kids like high chairs, cribs and safety kits.
