This hotel is WONDERFUL! Their Spa is devine, and their restaurant has the most delicious food with a super menu. The Kimpton Lorien is located on King Street just blocks from the Waterfront, the Torpedo Factory and fine dining, There is also a trolley which will take you there. I also had the opportunity to get a massage, which was...

There were a lot of things I liked about the Lorien, but the things I did not out-weighed them. Things I liked: clean room; friendly staff; good food in Tasting Room; pleasant courtyard; wine sampling from 5-6; location - near Metro station and there's a Whole Foods nearby. But, the mattress in my room was terrible, the worst I have...

The Lorien Hotel on upper King Street is a great choice for people traveling with pets. As a Kimpton Hotel, pets are welcomed as graciously as their humans. What made our stay so great was the staff. Every person we encountered, from the front desk, to the valets, to the housekeepers, to the chef, to anyone we passed in the...

As I watched the door of my room close, I had an "oh no" moment. I realized that my jacket was still in the room. I went downstairs to the front desk to check out, and asked for another key explaining that I just left my jacket in the room. The lady at the front desk asked me if I...

Dear Michelle A, Thank you so much for staying with us and offering your candid feedback. I am so sorry that you had such interaction with a member of the team.

My husband travels to DC one week out of the month and occasionally stays at the Lorien in Old Town Alexandria. He told me this was a great hotel, and I was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and we were upgraded to a small suite, which was clean, modern, and cozy. We had a private balcony,...

Lorien Hotel & Spa is the perfect weekend getaway for special occasion in old town Alexandria. The Hotel staff is wonderful, friendly and welcoming, starting from the Parking Valet, Concierge and the Spa service. One thing that I love about the Kimpton hotels, is their wine hour. Especially in the old town Alexandria, when on Saturday the happy hours are...

Valet parking is expensive but your only option, hotel needs a breezeway to connect to unloading space because we had to walk across an open courtyard to the main entrance and got soaked after we left our car. Room was a huge disappointment, one small window which opened to an adjoining room balcony, not any view of any kind. Sparsely...

Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location - don't change anything! I have been visiting the Lorien for years and it never disappoints. The BRABO Tasting Room is perfect for off hours dining and the main Brabo dining room is an excellent venue for a business dinner.

Dog heaven! Upon arrival my poochie got a treat bag. Poo bags provided as well and a Lorian tennis ball. He felt like a king. Plenty of space in the bathroom for food and water. Tile/concrete in the main areas was great for not worrying about him sniffing around. Best dog hotel enter.

Every wall in this hotel, public and private is painted a drab depressing shade of celery green....it does not convey the serene spa atmosphere it bills itself. Furnishings are minimal & worn. It's not a bargain or value by any standard. As is Kimpton corporate culture do not think of checking in early or staying late.
