You're not the only one excited to see Ron Burgundy hit the big screen again this Christmas. Washington, DC's, Hotel Helix and Newseum have "Anchorman" fever, and are showing their classy ways with new exhibits and a special hotel package.

Kimpton’s Hotel Helix is offering "Anchorman" movie fans a place to stay with a new “Stay Classy, D.C.” package. Travelers can rest up at the retro Hotel Helix in the heart of trendy Logan Circle, enjoy “Anchorman”-inspired amenities like a “scotchy, scotch, scotch” at the adjacent Helix Lounge and nab tickets to Newseum’s new "Anchorman: The Exhibit," which opens Nov. 14, 2013. Even Baxter the dog is welcome, as Hotel Helix has no pet fees or restrictions.

Helix, a Kimpton Hotel’s “Stay Classy, D.C.” package includes:

  • Deluxe accommodations
  • Two scotches (or drink of guests’ choice) at Helix Lounge
  • Two tickets to Newseum’s “Anchorman: The Exhibit” which includes costumes worn by the Channel 4 Evening News team and a number of original props from the movie, such as Ron Burgundy's jazz flute
  • Felt moustache and comb welcome amenity, to keep aspiring newscasters’ hairdos camera-ready

The "Stay Classy, D.C." package starts at $139 a night from Nov. 14, 2013 through Aug. 2014 and is based on availability. Book your room directly online at using rate code CLASSY, or by calling (202) 462-9001
