"Great place to stay in Alexandria"
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 into D.C. one day. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful!
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. The Lorien is a beautiful, updated hotel that caters to the guest's every need. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Most of all, the staff is amazing. We were greeted every morning with smiles and "can I be of service" and every evening with "would you care for a glass of wine". There are two great dining areas attached to the hotel and all the trappings of King Street within walking distance. If you would rather not walk, the Old Town Trolley can be caught within a block. I we could change anything about the hotel we would ask that there be a little more room in the refrigerator for our beverages and room in the closet to hang our clothes. Our fridge was full of beverages for purchase. Additionally, due to the shelving for safe, snacks for purchase, refrigerator, spa robes and ironing board, we only had about 20-inches of closet space. This was not a major issue. Paid internet resulting in our not taking advantage of the service. Overall, we will definitely choose the Lorien for future stays in Alexandria.
"BEST PLACE I HAVE EVER STAYED"
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 leg. I was so upset and the girl at the front desk printed off directions to the animal hospital for him, and then came upstairs to our room and checked on me, she even offered to watch our baby. I was beyond impressed by this hotel and I wish I could only stay at Kimptons.
"Hotel Near DC - OK, But Not Exceptional"
This modern, minimal decor hotel is in a good location in Alexandria, VA about 10 miles from the White House. The service is OK, but the rooms lack any interesting features and many are an unusual shape. Some rooms lack much in the way of window space, and can be dark and dreary. The bathrooms have only one sink so couples could struggle. The attached Brabo restaurant is a plus, and the affiliated casual restaurant space is a useful nearby asset to the hotel.
"Very cold and stark hotel."
We booked a King Deluxe room at this hotel to join friends in the North End of Alexandria to be near our restaurant. The courtyard is lovely but once you enter the lobby it is very spartan and cold. The "library" is filled with white covered "books". Our "deluxe" room was very small - one bedside table, my husband hung his glasses on the wall-mounted light. The bathroom looked nice, all dark tile and glass but the sink is in a terrible position - very high, difficult to reach and I am 5'8". I couldn't wait to get out of this room! The Kimpton Monaco on lower King St is funkier and nicer and more fun! We paid $281 + $30 parking for this room. Four days earlier we were in New YorK City and had a room 4 times the size in mid-town for less than twice the price.
