Stayed here for the Scottish Christmas weekend. The hotel was very nice and clean - you walk through a beautiful brick courtyard to get to the hotel itself, which was a very welcoming entrance. Check-in was fast and efficient, and all staff was very helpful and friendly during our entire stay. We had a smaller hotel room than most others in the hotel, which was fine as we booked the hotel using a TravelZoo voucher. The room was clean and very nice, however, the decor was much simpler than other Kimpton hotels I have stayed at - it felt more like a typical hotel room than most others in the brand. Although it was too cold to enjoy the weekend we were there, we had a balcony that overlooked the courtyard which was a nice touch.
The location was good as it was just a block from the Metro and train station, and right on King Street, with tons of restaurants and shops nearby. We enjoyed breakfast each morning from a cafe across the street each morning, which was very convenient. However, the Monaco and Morris House Kimptons are more centrally located than the Lorien.
Overall, our stay was very nice, however, I would probably try a different hotel the next time I go to Alexandria.
