My husband planned a trip to Alexandria for our 2 year anniversary and chose the Lorien, and boy am I glad he did! It was simply amazing. They brought complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to our room to surprise us one night, which was a very nice touch! The place is beautiful and very clean. The staff is friendly...

Dear bowamy, It is nice to note you enjoyed our evening wine reception in our living room, and had a fabulous massage from Will.

Went for business for a convention recently, and had a pleasant time, comfortable stay with easy access to the metro. The hotel itself is small, but what it lacks in room size/hotel size, the staff generously makes up for it. Overly accommodating, friendly and always helpful and patient. I even brought my dog to test out their "pet friendliness" and...

I always look for Kimpton hotels to stay at wherever we end up, and the Lorien was once again a great experience. We had a spacious room, very clean, though a little stark!

While attending a trade show in DC, my wife and I elected to stay in Alexandra and the Lorien Hotel. Perfect decision.
