Stayed at the Kimpton Lorien in Alexandria for my birthday weekend. The hotel was delightful, staff warm and friendly and food excellent. Kimpton goes out of their way to find small personal touches and ways to acknowledge that they value you as an individual customer. From the wine receptions each evening to the welcome on every coming and going throughout...

Have been staying here several times already. Love the boutique atmosphere. Very welcoming & attentive teams. Rooms differ widely in layout as they are in an old building. Very quiet rooms, comfy beds and nice bathrooms (with rainshower).

Excellent location on quiet end of King Street with close proximity to metro station. Advise a rain shower room. Lots of light from bay windows overlooking charming courtyard. If you're tired of cramped hotel bathrooms, you will not be disappointed with the size of this one. Huge walk-in rain shower is to die for!

The hotel is lovely. The staff was either polite and or friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The wine hour was fun with delicious hors d'veuoers, wine and a cozy, warm library to enjoy them.

For those of us who love Kimpton Hotels, the Lorain is consistent with Kimpton's high standards of comfort, service and quality. Although more spartan than most Kimpton hotels, the Lorain is sleek, attractive in muted colors, and up-to-date. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is great...easy walk through town to the metroi and, other direction to harbor. Very nice...

While we have been to DC many times, we have never visited Alexandria. The Lorien was a perfect spot-only a 5 minute walk to the Metro, and surrounded by numerous restaurant and retail locations, Despite the fact that the hotel was right on King Street, it was serene and quiet. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a lovely...

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