This was my third stay at the Lorien and it was fantastic as usual. The hotel has the unique boutique feel that you have come to expect from Kimpton Hotels. However this property just feels a little more sophisticated. Rather than the wild colors and animal prints this hotel adopts a more minimalist approach to décor. The color scheme invokes... More

My husband and I have been staying at this beautiful hotel for four or five years. We go out of town once a year, and the Lorien has been our special place to stay. Each time we have stayed here, the experience has been a pleasure, and our room is always a different type with a different configuration and always... More

I highly recommend staying at the Lorien in Alexandria. I stay here every time I go to DC for work trips and am never disappointed. The entire staff...from the valets, to room service, to the front desk folks, to the servers in the restaurants, to the housekeeping staff...all of then make you feel genuinely welcome, and they are very helpful...

As soon as we pulled up to the hotel we knew we made the right choice. My wife and I have not had a real vacation in years and we were a little hesitant in choosing to go to Alexandria and D.C and stay in a smaller hotel. But as soon as we saw the quaint charming decor of the... More

The hotel is a lovely, quiet oasis in Alexandria. I would absolutely return again. My room was lovely, clean etc., but the real draw is the hotel's small touches. For example, the receptionist worked with me to find a room that suited my needs, there is a complimentary wine tasting each evening, and the morning coffee (also complimentary) is delicious....

I was a bit concerned when we arrived and there wasn't a valet but in fact they were there and being attentive to arriving guests. Rooms are spacious and clean. We asked for a second bathrobe and it was delivered in 5 minutes max along with our luggage. As far as the curtain for a bathroom door it's a temporary... More

My husband and I were moving to Florida from CT with our two kitties. We never travelled with them before and were unsure of the accommodations we would find in a "pet friendly" hotel. The Lorien Hotel and Spa was more than a pleasant surprise, it is a true gem. High quality all around and their staff was top notch,... More

I walked in the courtyard and into the lobby and I thought I was in heaven. It was so charming! Then I get to my room and it was so nice at first. Nice modern bathroom with concrete countertops.

We stayed at the Lorien Hotel as the end-point to an 11 day cycle tour on the GAP and C and O towpath trails from Pittsburgh. The room and facilities are typical for the Kimpton chain, with a sense of interesting design that is unique to each property. Like other Kimptons we have stayed in, the bathrooms are very high...
