My husband and I celebrated our 25th at the Lorien. Julie and Brandon at the front desk were a delightful duo joining in our celebration by sending up champagne and macaroons. We could not have asked for a more refreshing retreat. By the way, if you've never experienced a Kimpton Hotel, they literally think of everything. From umbrellas to healthy... More

Again we visited Lorien. We were disappointed in the assigned room because of size and view. We were quickly changed to a wonderful room. Wonderful service again by the front desk. Beds were still the best I ever slept on, room very quiet even though it was on Kings Street. The hotel is always very clean and smells so great... More

my son and his wife celebrated their 1st year wedding anniversary yesterday. He told me he booked a room at Gaylords Hotel across the river in Maryland. I looked at the "deluxe room" he booked and asked him if he could cancel and get his money back. He asked me why and I said I wanted to put them at... More

This hotel has the most immaculate bathroom that I have ever seen in my entire life at a hotel. Of course I like trendy aspects of a hotel, a comfortable bad, amenities, etc.… But what wins me over is it being clean. Even the most outdated hotel is okay in my book, assuming it is clean. I have to give... More

Once again the Lorien delivers...and continues to be the only place I consider staying when traveling to DC for work or vacation. I love the convenience of the hotel, but the best thing about this hotel is its genuinely friendly, helpful staff. I'm not kidding when I tell you that all the people at this property are friendly and make... More

We chose to stay overnight in Alexandria after a company dinner and to enjoy our anniversary. The location is great as it is close to the King Street Metro. There are a few options for restaurants that are quite close, too. The hotel is right on King St and the shopping is quite good. A short walk leads to several... More

The location of Lorien Hotel and Spa is nice, close to the King Street Metro Station and in Old Town. My room was luxurious and well appointed. The bath was particularly nice with a very large shower and a claw-foot tub as well. The room was clean and quiet. I was upgraded to a suite which had a very nice... More

We stayed at the Lorien for 4 days over Thanksgiving, in order to be close to family for the holiday. We brought our 3 dogs with us, and had a fantastic stay. Considering how many dogs were in the hotel during the time we spent there, it was very quiet in our room and in the hallways. The rooms are... More

This was my first stay at a Kimpton property. I had booked a great rate online months ago at$149 a night including parking. The Lorien has valet curb service and they allowed us to check early since our room was ready. The hotel Lobby is nice; they offer morning coffee and tea and newspapers (3 different ones, NY times, Wall... More

Lorien is a cute quaint "boutique" hotel in the middle of Old Town, Alexandria. It is accessible to the King Street metro but also has valet services if you drive. We stayed in one of the two suites with outdoor decks, and found our suite to be very well appointed. The rooms itself are small to average size but the... More
