Stayed at the Lorien with my adult son while visiting replative in Alexandria. What a bright clean hotel! The staff was very friendly and ready to help. Ice was delivered in less than 5 minutes each time we called (no noisy ice machines in halls). Carpets, bathrooms and public areas were shiny clean.
Restaurant in hotel, Brabo, was elegant and the food tremendous. They have a small courtyard off the library in the lobby with a firepit where we sat and enjoyed some scotch after days of visits with family and waking around Old Town.
The Masonic Temple up the street is visually stunning and the jog from the hotel to the top of the hill on which it sits is both invigorating and has an awesome panoramic view of the town below.
Valet parking is $20/night. King St Metro station is less than 1/3 mile walk.
