We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and it was really wonderful - the staff is very sweet and accommodating! They really make you feel genuinely welcomed. It was great coming back from a day of sightseeing to a glass of wine, and it was nice having coffee available in the morning as well. Good location, 5 min walk from... More

The Lorien is another one of our favorite Kimpton Hotels. The company and management clearly put an emphasis on hiring and training people who know the value of exceptional service. In the end, a comfortable pillow and mattress is nice too! I'm sure the Hampton In looks like every other Hampton Inn, but doesn't that get boring? We were greeted... More

The hotel needs some updates but it was a good stay. Lots of stains on our shower. The hotel location is the primary reason I would stay here again. I feel other Kimpton hotels have been more impressive for the price.

I like Kimpton hotels - they tend to be very nice, well appointed, and in great locations. I also like that I can depend on a brand to be consistent as it allows me to book with confidence. I was disappointed by this hotel. First the good - The price for the location was very reasonable. I would have paid... More

I stayed here twice, once for business and the second for leisure travel. They offer STELLAR service within the hotel as well as the restaurants. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return again, and again.

My wife and I stayed for a week while traveling to DC. The rooms are aesthetically pleasing but these create a few problems. 1, the shower door will not keep water in the shower and it floods the bathroom. 2, there is no privacy created by the glass door to the bathroom. 3, the sheets are soft but fail to...

I had never stayed at a Kimpton property before, but had the privilege of staying at both the Lorien and the Hotel Monaco, both Kimpton hotels, during a visit to Old Town Alexandria in mid-June. I had booked a room for the first night of my visit at the nearby Hampton Inn, but upon check-in, learned that the property had... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lorien the first weekend of August, 2014 to visit my brother who resides in Alexandria. The location was perfect! It was only blocks from the Metro. It was on King Street with all the historical shops and great restaurants. As for the hotel, it was very charming. As we entered the hotel, there... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely hotel. We utilized the courtyard everyday we were visiting to relax between excursions. The hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our only gripe is that we really didn't have any natural light in our room- the tiny window looked onto someone else's balcony- but since we were in the room so little- this wasn't... More

weekend with my wife to experience the area, explore and dine. The hotel staff was pleasant and attentive, the room and bathroom were spotless, the bed was comfortable and nicely dressed, the decor is modern eclectic, they had a 'wine hour' each evening for guests, smallish hotel but very fine, would love to stay here again,
