I live locally in Alexandria, and have used the spa and restaurants at the Lorien Hotel, but never stayed overnight. When choosing a location for a small bachelorette weekend, the Lorien seemed perfect - and it was! I have worked with Kimptons locally for other events, so I went through my contact in reservations, Josh Cummings, who was as helpful... More

Just one block from the King Street metro, this is a beautiful, light, bright, European style hotel (in fact it bears an uncanny resemblance to the Apex Trample Court in London). The front desk staff was warm and friendly as soon as we arrived. They all greeted us with "happy anniversary" when we said the name on our reservation, then... More

Everything about our stay at Lorien was wonderful. The room was clean and modern, but with character. I am very picky about hotel rooms and notice every little thing that housekeeping overlooks or that is not in perfect condition, and I literally did not notice a single thing here that was not to my liking. The service was great, they... More

We just returned from spending 3 nights at the Lorien Hotel & Spa. There were 3 gentlemen at the reservation desk when we arrived - they checked in our group without any problems and did so very quickly. The room itself was very nice and quite contemporary. There is so much to see and do in the Alexandria area, we... More

We have stayed at Hotel Monaco before and enjoyed it (except for the loud older air conditioner). So we gave Lorien a try since it also had high reviews. Aesthetically on the outside it looked nice and very old town feel. And it is on King Street where there are plenty of restaurants and bars and we walked all the... More

Discreet signage and recessed entryway, you might miss this hotel on your first drive by and that would be sad. Cool, low key ambiance. Pleasant, energetic young staff clearly interested in your comfort. Great value. I spent 4 nights and left my car most of the time preferring to walk and use the Metro to DC and the free trolley...

My boyfriend and I were supposed to fly out of DCA on Thursday night, but our flight was cancelled due to weather. Frustrated, I called the Lorien to make a reservation and jumped on the metro out to Old Town. When we arrived, there was a bottle of wine and some chocolate in our room, which was just what I...

My wife and I wanted to take a small getaway to Alexandria. Our usual "Go To" hotel was a tad pricey for the dates we wanted. So after searching we found the Lorien. We have walked past it many times on our way down King St to enjoy the many fine restaurants. Pulling up to the front of the hotel,... More

We stayed hotel Monaco in Washington DC and Old Town Alexandria,VA. We love hotel Monaco,but this Lorien Hotel is the most unattractive hotel we've stayed. There are no bath tub and room is decorated with white,gray and light blue color. It reminds me of hospital room including white lighting. In bathroom,there is no necessary items like shower cap which other... More

A great 2 night stay at the Lorien - from the car valet, to check in, to the room, to the facilities, to the check out - it was all great. The staff were among the friendliest I have encountered and dinner was excellent. I am looking forward to getting back to DC so that I can return.
