Absolutely beautiful room and a great terrace. The staff was awesome- always helpful and wicked nice. The soaking tub was TO DIE FOR! The bed was comfy and room spacious. I don't think I could get more privacy- even on the terrace. Thanks for the great stay!

Stayed here Memorial Day weekend for a girls weekend. Great location. Free bikes. Comfy beds. Perfect courtyard lunch dining. Valet took my shopping bags at the street and sent them to the room so I could continue to dinner. After some bumps during the stay I participated in a review of the hotel. The manager, Tobias, called me personally and... More

This hotel is a short walking distance to the metro station - no need for a car. You can also walk down to the Potomac and visit all of the quaint shops and restaurants in Alexandria. The staff was very helpful - quick to respond and thoughtful. The room was quiet, nicely appointed, and the maid service was excellent. I... More

Love this Kimpton Hotel, great location on King St. Close to the George Washington Masonic temple memorial and about a mile from the waterfront. There is a free trolley shuttle that will bring you to the torpedo factory/ marina if you want a ride instead. Quaint shops line this street . Very friendly staff, accommodates requests for a room change(... More

With a bit of flare and elegance, you can transport yourself directly from the metro or shopping in Old Town Alexandria, to a peaceful, elegant oasis. The staff was gracious. The rooms were great (claw bath tub did NOT go to waste.) And we happened to take advantage of Brabo, their upscale restaurant. YUM! We actually encountered a problem with... More

I have stayed at the Lorien many times in my travels to DC so I figured it was about time to write a review. I travel to DC about 5-6 times a year for work and each time I attempt to stay at the Lorien. Even though it's about a 30 minute commute to the office (via the Metro) from... More

I recently spent the weekend at the Lorien. The accommodations were lovely, clean and spacious. The house staff could not have been more helpful. I called and requested an extra blanket and it was delivered warm to my room within five minutes. I also dined at both Brabo and Brabo tasting room. Food was amazing and the staff was delightful!...
