But oddly laid out.
It was (literally) 13 steps from the door to the window, so there was plenty of space, but the bathroom area was beyond tiny -- really small toilet/shower closet and a such a low ceiling in the sink area that the mirror gave me a lovely view of my neck and upper torso.
That said, it was a great experience. We were upgraded to a "tranquility" room, which meant that we had a reclining massage chair that was hard to leave. Very comfortable bed, huge room, great view. Very friendly and helpful staff (as seems to be the case in all Kimpton hotels).
My one caveat (and this relates to the area more than to the hotel) is that if you're looking for a late-night meal, you're out of luck. I wandered all over Dupont Circle trying to find someplace to eat before finding a (fortunately very, very good) gyro place more or less around the corner (and across the street from the Hotel Palomar (where we'd stayed the week before and which offers 24-hour room service; I was almost tempted to go in, say I'd been there, was staying around the corner, and could I pretend I was still checked in so I could order room service ...).
Regardless, a great, great experience, and I'd happily stay there again.
