Did you try using Exponential under color mapping? From what I rear that is what its somewhat intended to do. Never tried though.

Other option is half exposure but double the number of bounces..

Like RedStar said. Use one of the tonemappers, I like reinhard, but whichever works good for you.

Also, if this is an interior, try putting blinds or curtains in the windows to even out the lighting a bit.
