The Kimpton Lorien was perfect for my vacation getaway with my fiancee. The hotel was in a convenient location in Old Town, right next to fantastic restaurants and shopping. Our room was simple but clean. I wish the room had been a little more decorated but I was satisfied with my experience. There was complimentary tea in the morning and...

The hotel's decor is not mind blowing but it was a nice, clean hotel. The courtyard seems nice but it was too cold to be outside. They have complimentary tea/coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The Wi-Fi was decent. Our room on the 6th floor was spacious and quiet. The valet parking is $30/day but at check-in...

Stayed for just one night in a terrace suite. The room was well appointed and the bed comfortable. The only gripe about the room was, oddly enough, the placement of the toilet paper holder, which was so close as to make using the toilet uncomfortable. The hotel doesn't have a fitness facility or pool, which is kind of a bummer.

Loved our recent stay at the Lorien! The staff really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and it was the perfect location for a much needed getaway. Our deluxe king room was spacious and very comfortable. The decor was simple and unremarkable, which is quite unusual for Kimpton whose Monaco and Palomar brands are very bold...

After having stayed at other Kimpton locations in Alexandria for years, I recently made a return visit to the Lorien and was pleased. As an inner circle member I received an upgrade to a large suite. Though both the bedroom and living room had televisions, we found the signal in the living room to be poor, often giving us an...

!. I drove to this hotel. Don't come here by car - the Valet system does not work and is mandatory. They have one valet. Parks cars, gets cars, helps bring luggage in - very long delays. 2. Lobby is run down and dirty. 3. Hallways are dirty. 4. Room was dirty and weird. No - absolutely NO! closet space,...

I'm surprised this is a Kimpton property. I thought they had higher standards. The rooms are small and not very well done. The blue wall color is the worst. It makes you look sick. The leather chair by the desk had rips in it which kept catching my clothes and the photos on the wall aren't in focus (like bad...

This hotel is tucked away behind a courtyard from King Street. The staff were always friendly and helpful. They forgot to bring my ice up once but that was not a big deal. The room had a modern feel. I only noticed a little paint chipping from the bathroom ceiling but there is no fan. The bed and pillows were...

A very nice boutique hotel in Old Town Alexandria, lovely decor, helpful staff. Located right on King street steps from shopping and restaurants. My stay here was pleasant, I would recommend this to anyone visiting Alexandria for the first time.

My wife and I booked a night away at the Kimpton Lorien Hotel & Spa for our wedding anniversary. Could not have had a better experience. The staff at the Front Desk, Spa, and Brabo went above and beyond to make the stay special.
