This is now our third stay with the Kimpton brand, and it has been just as amazing as the previous stays! The location is perfect for out of town travelers – conveniently located about 2 blocks away from the Metro in a very safe and beautiful historic neighborhood. There are tons of shops and restaurants just on King Street alone.
The serene courtyard immediately sets the tone for your stay as you are greeted by the friendly Kimpton staff. You just gotta love that Kimpton lobby scent!
The room was perfect! Definitely a little larger than it looks in pictures. Although it may look like a standard hotel room, the light fixtures, decorations, and barn-style frosted glass bathroom door let you know that you are in a much nicer place.
To make things even better, we were greeted by an awesome display of pumpkins, local craft beers, and a plate of cookies welcoming us to the hotel! As an added bonus, we were invited to take a complimentary tour of the local brewery – perfect since we were in town during the government shutdown.
The staff exceeded expectations at every turn, especially Johnny the Greek, Mr. Nice Guy, and Almeisha (sorry if I spelled it wrong). They were always eager to answer questions, go above and beyond, and make me feel like I was a celebrity.
Thank you to everyone at the Lorien. We will definitely be coming back because of you.
