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...

My co-workers and I traveled to Alexandria for business and stumbled across the Kimpton given its close proximity to the King St. metro line. I liked the boutique look of the hotel and was not disappointed. Just like Alexandria itself, the hotel has a historic, brick-laden charm (everything in Alexandria appears to be made of brick). The staff was wonderfully...

We stayed here while visiting schools in the area. Super location and very quaint. Courtyard and lobby were very nice, rooms look great and are nicely updated. The only reason I didn't give it the highest rating are because it was noisy, they seem to lack any noise insulation from room to room and the rooms are great when the...

My husband and I stayed here with a group of friends, we found the location convenient and parking was easy for this neighborhood. We felt the rooms were a little dark but otherwise loved everything about the place, lobby and rooms were clean...we never made it to the bar/restaurant but hope to next time we're in town.

My trip arranger selected this due to its proximity to the HQ office. It's nice, but in the room there aren't enough lights. Two wall lamps extend over the beds. There is an armchair in the corner, next to a socket, but no floor or table lamp, making reading a moot point. Then, the work surface underneath the wall-mounted TV,...

Dear Jim O, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. In my book, that is a sub par stay! I will get with the team immediately and remedy the TV channel lineup document. The sense of difference lies in the attention to details. There are a lot of great stuff that we...

I stayed at Kimpton Lorien in old town, Alexandria and loved everything about it. Its location on King street was convenient and walkable to work and great restaurants after work. The hotel almost had a B&B feel to it because of its unpretentious and comfortable library, cozy courtyard and tranquil rooms with clean linens. The library was where morning coffee...

I stayed here on a cold January night and was warmed up by the friendliness the staff, the quality of the room, and the overall ambiance of the place. I would recommend. I did not go to the spa, but did use the gym which is small, but well-equipped.

The Lorien was the 6th stop on my 2017 Kimpton Journey and I really enjoy this hotel. I've stayed here once before and the level of service is as you expect from a Kimpton. The rooms are very comfortable and the property sits back off the road so it's very quite. When I checked in I missed the 5pm Happy...

The location was fantastic and Alexandria is the perfect place to stay while visiting DC. But what sets this hotel apart is the above and beyond service. We had several visits from the staff bringing us special bottles of water and popcorn. They were very helpful in telling us about nearby restaurants and places to visit. The room was lovely,...

This property was much nicer than we expected. The building is beautifully renovated, also staff is very kind an helpful. The location was great too. It's close to public transportation, and all great restaurants in Alexandria. The restaurant(BRABO) was great too! A little con: our room(a king deluxe) didn't have an actual 'window' to directly view outside. It has a...

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