Perfect for DC

This hotel puts you in Alexandria and near the DC Metro line, so you can explore both easily. There is a Dunkin Donuts 2 blocks away as well, so you can pick something up on your way out. The rooms are modern and comfy, with most having balconies.

Brabo and the Tasting Room are great for a meal or snack. They have well-stocked bars as well.

Loved the Lorien!

The Kimpton Lorien is a great place to stay. We stayed 5 nights while visiting our son and it is a great location in Old Alexandria. It is close to the Metro station and you can walk to restaurants, shops, the water, etc. We ate at the Brabo Tasting Room for a light dinner and for breakfast. The hotel had evening wine that was very good. It has a nice patio out front where we loved to sit in the beautiful weather while we were there. We loved our visit there.

rather ordinary experience

I booked a King bed and got two doubles. No real discussion . Just an explanation that was all that they had. I had to be at a dinner for out of town guests, so, I did not have time to look elsewhere. I would not go back to this hotel. Dr. Bursich

Charming

The hotel was beautiful with excellent staff. I enjoyed the coffee service every morning and the wine tasting from 5-6 every afternoon! The courtyard is charming! I scheduled a massage at the spa and was disappointed in the therapist's skill. The amenities were wonderful, however and I would absolutely stay again on a future trip.

Could have done with a bar area in lobby area

You know, just to sit and a a drink. I know you do the whole free wine thing - but that is a bit weird, i think. Firstly, it is between 5-6 - for most business types that is way too early - and it is pretty limited to an hour as well! And being free, I am not sure it adds much to the experience of staying at a Kimpton. Otherwise, Kimptons are great!
