Like all Kimpton hotels, this one was cool. The spa like design made it calm. It is very convenient, only a couple blocks away from the King Street Metro station. I was on a quick business trip so I did not have time to try the spa or the lovely outdoor courtyard, but I will next time. My only complaint... More

This hotel is a little boutique on the north side of King Street in Old Town. The location was just far enough to be quiet, but within walking distance of all the fun. This was our first stay here, but it definitely won't be our last. The room, the bathroom, the staff and the food were AMAZING. I also got... More

The Lorien Spa and Hotel is a smartly decorated hotel, conveniently located in walking distance of the Old Town metro stop and the attractions of historic King Street. The rooms were very comfortable, but if you're a light sleeper, do not stay on the top two floors. There is an annoying humming that emanates from generators atop the roof. We... More

This hotel is located two block from the metro in Old Town. Perfect location for commuting into DC as its about 20 min by metro. Hotel is in great condition, friendly staff, and great room. Room was clean, modern and comfortable.

Set back off King St in Old Town Alexandria, The Lorien looks good. Whoever was in charge of the decor did a simple but effective job. Some people may find the materials used a little cheap, but you would have to be in a picky mood. Yes the staff are great, the position is very central so its an easy... More

I love the way the hotel is tucked in among all the other old town style buildings, it does not stick out like a giant box as most hotels do. Very quaint and quiet. The staff was friendly, and helpful. Know that they only have valet parking and given the looks of the area, I did not see any self... More

This hotel is Kimpton at its best. I have reviewed before, but its worth another positive note! Service is consistent, rooms are wonderful, and location could not be better. When you add the Mussels and a great glass of wine.....i don't know how i can leave today? Great job, Kimpton!

I used to live in Alexandria and remember when this property was being built. I remember thinking to myself then that I'm sure it would turn out beautiful since I've always had an affinity for Kimpton Hotels. Several years later, on a business trip to Alexandria, I finally got the chance to stay in the hotel. It did not disappoint.... More
