We stay at the hotel when we need to spend a night in DC before catching early morning flights out of National. We love the hotel as it is an easy walk to the metro station, a nice design hotel and it is close to lots of good places to eat.

I've always liked Kimptons, and this hotel was no exception. The front desk staff was very pleasant and efficient. My room (415) was spacious--enormous bathroom--with a great soaking tub. Closets are a bit small, but since I was only there for a single night, it wasn't a problem. Very nice work and sitting area. Overall, clean, modern, and a bit... More

So, we picked the Lorien for our overnight stay because we do enjoy Kimpton hotels and it was rated #1. We probably should have gone with Monaco but I was worried it would be filled with screaming kids (due to indoor pool) and we were on an overnight w/out kids! Overall it was fine but I'd pick a different hotel... More

So I decided to surprise my wife and spend more money than comparable hotels for a couples night away. The pictures on the website looked great so I thought it would be worth it, but it was not. The good: 1) service, especially by front desk, was friendly and prompt. 2) located on King Street not too far from the... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting family for the holidays. When I booked I was unable to get two beds confirmed (there were 3 of us) so they put a note on our reservation regarding it. The day of arrival the hotel staff called us about it and confirmed they could switch us. Upon arrival we were met... More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. While the hotel was very nice, I would not say it was the best stay I've had - especially for the price. The rooms were very well decorated, light and clean. However they were much smaller than many hotels of this caliber. The bathrooms were especially roomy - I would have... More

We booked this hotel for its luxurious accommodations and great ratings as well as proximity to the waterfront for New Year's eve activities using a 3rd party. We booked a KING room and were surprised to have been given keys to a double bed room. By double bed I mean the beds were not king or queens, they were TINY.... More

As Kimpton Hotels go, this place is tops. The decor is minimalist without feeling sparse; the staff are friendly without being insincere; the location is central without feeling crowded; the atmosphere is cool without feeling trendy. I've stayed here probably four times in the past several years, and it's always a treat. There are so many great shops and restaurants... More

We booked a last-minute trip to de-stress after Christmas! We made a great choice with the Lorien and Alexandria. The hotel was very clean-super important in my book. The staff was friendly and pleasant. The complimentary wine hour was nice and the wines were good-not great but good for free! The room was comfortable and spacious and the bathroom and... More

After a disappointing experience with Kimpton in Savannah I was so happy to be reminded of why I love Kimpton hotels with the experience at the Lorien Hotel. We were welcomed with a WARM smile (despite a late check in of 9pm). Because we missed wine hour we received two complimentary drink tickets for the bar. When we arrived in... More
