Nowhere in this area is inexpensive per se, but this is without a doubt a great hotel for a reasonable price. The mile walk to the water in the evening was just beautiful, feels safe and charming. Found happy hour and dinner along the way, and a coffee shop across the street. Staff were attentive and polite. Room wasn't large... More

From the moment we checked in with our Bichon for a 50th birthday weekend, it was a grand experience. Not only did every little request form the online reservation get to the property, but I was completely impressed with the ease of check in and the efficiency of the staff. We stay at pet-friendly hotels often, but none like a... More

We stayed at this hotel to visit Washington DC and we liked it a lot. Location was almost perfect for us. It is located only about a 5 minute walk from the metro station, very close but not too close to be noisy. Going to DC was pretty easy. (Take yellow or blue line depending on where you want to...

Lorien hotel was a great boutique hotel in Old Town Alexandria. Old Town is adorable but the main reason I chose it was due to its proximity to DC. Hotels in DC proper were outrageously expensive and just by crossing the river, we had a great hotel experience and were 20 min by metro to downtown DC. The amenities and... More

The location, in Old Town, is lovely. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel really lovely. As a family of four, we had a small suite. The bathroom was enormous with a footed tub and wet room area. There is a lovely sitting room off the reception area where coffee and tea are served in the morning, and... More

Great location, near restaurants and nice shops. Nice to walk up and down King St. Very kind and nice people at the front desk, we felt at home. Our room was a little small but very nice decor. They provide a yoga matt and yoga TV channel(complimentary!) I really liked it! To members of Kimpton they give you a coupon... More

The Lorien Hotel and Spa is a lovely boutique hotel situated in Old Town, Alexandria. The hotel is located in a historical brick building that has been updated with a sleekly modern design. The sheets were high quality, the bathroom-minimalist yet luxurious, and the room amenities were plentiful. However, the area where this hotel really shines is in its staff... More

My husband and I decided to stay at the hotel on Saturday Mar 8 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The attention we received from Chase and Miss Maryland was unparalled. Unforunately there were several issues with room (506). The walls were painted with several different verisons of the same shade of paint and it took away from the beauty of... More

I stayed here for two nights while on business and I could not have been happier with it. I had a two room suite, with a nice large bathroom with tub & shower. The rooms were gorgeously decorated and very comfortable. The location can't be beat -- right on King street so in the middle of everything in Old Town... More
