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. I get ready for bed and crawl on the covers and something isnt right. The bed smells like urine. At first... More

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...

From the Valet parking to our late breakfast at Brabo Tasting Room, everything was first class! It helped to be a Kimpton member and knowing the secret word from their FB page.

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 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.
