The staff, as usual with nearly all Kimptons, was terrific. My wife and I ventured down to Alexandria for a small getaway for both out birthdays so we chose Lorien for the first time and they did not disappoint. Frances, and Julie sent us up some champagne, some snacks, and a nice card making us feel very welcomed. The staff...

First time at Lorien. Very much liking the way Kimpton runs their hotels we usually stayed at their Morrison House when in Alexandria. That is no longer a Kimpton Hotel and we preferred to stay with that brand. Lorien not only met, but exceed, Kimpton's very high standards. Spotless, spacious and elegant in an understated and cozy way. Very special...

I do love Kimpton and this location certainly did not disappoint. Location is perfect. Just a couple short blocks from the metro/amtrak station. It took us 5 min to walk. Super easy. Check in was a breeze. However we did have a problem with our original room. Nothing too major. The heater wasn't working upon our arrival. We called guest...

I love the Lorien. Not only do they have the best restaurant on King Street (which is a bold statement), but the hotel just breathes class. I love coming and spending a quiet night in their luxurious rooms.

Love the Kimpton brand of hotels and their pet friendliness so chose this location near DC for a weekend away. In general the hotel was comfortable, reception check in / check out went smoothly and everyone was helpful. Breakfast was located in a separate building so we had to walk outside though the cold courtyard every morning. The room was...

My usual hotels of choice are Westins (Starwood hotels) and more recently hotels in the Marriott family. However, I was able to stay at the Kimpton Lorien Hotel and Spa with a friend (who chose it). This is a very nice hotel, not a big hotel like others I usually visit, but still very nice. It has a small courtyard...

Just returned from a one-night stay at the Lorien and had an overall fantastic experience. The location is in a prime location on King Street, which is the main thoroughfare in town with restaurants and shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience in the Diplomat's suite, which has a huge sitting room, spa bathroom and private terrace. The service was extremely...

Went there for a weekend getaway. It is a very cute hotel in a great location. They have a really nice wine happy hour with great appetizers. Very comfortable bed and really nice bathroom. The only downside is the bathroom door is a slide door that doesn't lock. Would definitely go there again! The staff was extremely friendly

This Hotel is the top of my list in Alexandria, VA. I have visited there many times, business, pleasure, reunions etc. and having found this hotel on my last visit I am sorry I didn't fine it sooner. The staff on the front desk is wonderful, especially Jazzmine, but kudos to all others, too. they welcome you every time you...

“Suites on 6th floor have big open roof top balconies. Perfect for gatherings but no privacy if you're in a neighboring room/balcony.”

“I would not recommend this hotel”
  • Curtain to bathroom, not enough privacy
  • Terrible view from room with little light

“I always like rooms with a balcony myself. Not only for me, but my pet can get some fresh air and lay in the sun if desired.”

“Some rooms appear to have balconies.”

“2nd floor was quiet.”
  • No safety latch on the back of the door, only the handle lock
  • These are the electrical connections for the TV and WiFi extender.
  • Armchair with no lamp to read by
  • Only lights in the room over the beds
  • No lights to illuminate the work space.
