Really enjoyed my stay at the Lorien in Alexandria. Almetia and the rest of the staff truly went out of their way to ensure that I had a positive experience. The atmosphere is upscale yet very welcoming and the room was very well appointed. Location is perfect. Right on King Street, but away from the noise. Yet you walk to... More

My wife and I just spent three days at the Lorien in Alexandria VA. We stayed at the sister property - Morrison House and the service was outstanding! I regret that this property was lacking regarding overall service. First impressions are important, and this hotel was off to a poor start. Upon arrival, guests may only valet vehicles which I...

What a charming place! Everything is just right at the Lorien. The atmosphere is pleasant and friendly. The resturant BRABO by Robert Wiedmaier was so good we ate there three times. The service and food was superb. This hotel is on King Street a perfect location to walk off into shops, toward the riverfront and in the other direction to... More

This hotel looks great and has a nice (expensive) restaurant and bar with a great wine tasting room with breakfast opportunities. Sadly, the rooms don't match up at all. Most annoying, the bathroom door slides open but leaves an inch opening on each side. Unless you are alone it is very uncomfortable. The desk with chair is at the end... More

I live locally in Alexandria, and have used the spa and restaurants at the Lorien Hotel, but never stayed overnight. When choosing a location for a small bachelorette weekend, the Lorien seemed perfect - and it was! I have worked with Kimptons locally for other events, so I went through my contact in reservations, Josh Cummings, who was as helpful... More

Just one block from the King Street metro, this is a beautiful, light, bright, European style hotel (in fact it bears an uncanny resemblance to the Apex Trample Court in London). The front desk staff was warm and friendly as soon as we arrived. They all greeted us with "happy anniversary" when we said the name on our reservation, then... More

Dear zeldawannabe, Happy 19th anniversary! I’m excited that our team was able to make this important day a standout. I just looked the Apex Trample Court Hotel in London up online. What a beautiful property. I fully agree with you. It indeed has some similarities with our hotel. Any plans for you big 20th anniversary? We would love to have... More

Everything about our stay at Lorien was wonderful. The room was clean and modern, but with character. I am very picky about hotel rooms and notice every little thing that housekeeping overlooks or that is not in perfect condition, and I literally did not notice a single thing here that was not to my liking. The service was great, they... More

We just returned from spending 3 nights at the Lorien Hotel & Spa. There were 3 gentlemen at the reservation desk when we arrived - they checked in our group without any problems and did so very quickly. The room itself was very nice and quite contemporary. There is so much to see and do in the Alexandria area, we... More

We have stayed at Hotel Monaco before and enjoyed it (except for the loud older air conditioner). So we gave Lorien a try since it also had high reviews. Aesthetically on the outside it looked nice and very old town feel. And it is on King Street where there are plenty of restaurants and bars and we walked all the... More

Discreet signage and recessed entryway, you might miss this hotel on your first drive by and that would be sad. Cool, low key ambiance. Pleasant, energetic young staff clearly interested in your comfort. Great value. I spent 4 nights and left my car most of the time preferring to walk and use the Metro to DC and the free trolley...
