Located on the "upper" end of King St. in Old Town, the Kimpton Lorien was wonderful and in a great location. Large room with very large "rain shower" bath was quite comfortable. Very easy to get up and down King St. via the free trolley. Easy walk to the Metro to take you into DC. Their complimentary wine hour offered...

The hotel from my impressions on the outside and website seemed more cozy and warm than was my actual impression when in the room. The room was in ok condition, felt a bit cold from the design, being a strange mix of modern furniture including a desk surface made out of a concrete slab, all in an old, seemingly historic...

If you are visiting Alexandria, or a conference at National Harbor, this is modern hotel, tucked behind the street. This hotel attracts a younger crowd, the rooms are good size and bathroom with lots of counter space. The highlight is the restaurant out front which is associated with the hotel, Brabo, seats about 30, and the food is very good....

This place is really slipping. I loved it for previous visits, but the hallways are dirty, the bathroom sliding glass doors in the rooms have been replaced by cheesy curtains and worst of all, apparently the mother of the bride at a reception in the hotel threw up in the elevator and on the third floor carpet. The cleaning staff...

I've stayed at a lot of Kimpton hotels and love them. Unfortunately, this hotel is not up to par with the Kimpton brand. At check in they had trouble with our room and had to have a supervisor figure it out. The room itself was ok but the bathroom didn't have a door, it had a curtain! I was staying...

Where do I begin. We came to the Lorien because we had stayed here once years ago and had a lovely experience. We like boutique hotels because their cozy and usually have excellent service. We don't mind spending money for an excellent hotel. The people who are working here are very nice except that the front desk doesn't seem to...

Most luxurious hotel stay since my honeymoon 10 years ago. Mentioned it was our anniversary when booking and we were greeted with congratulations as well as upgraded room with complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries as well as a hand written note from the staff. More amenities than we bargained for. The hotel was modern and beautiful and the room...

This was our 3rd stay at the Lorien and we had another great experience. We had a room with a King ben and a "Rain Shower" (there was a 2nd shower head in the ceiling) which was very relaxing. The Lorien is located on King Street and about a 10 minute walk to the Metro which we used to go...

We recently visited Old Town Alexandria and had the great pleasure of staying at the Lorien. The hotel is located a very short walk from the Metro on King Street.

Not only was the room immaculate, it was spacious and absolutely beautiful. The room service was amazing and so were the snacks that came with the room. The balcony was spectacular with a great view and the staff was more than I could ask for. Our poor dog jumped off the bed while we were here and broke his little...
