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... More

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... More

I loved staying here. Loved the eclectic decor and more importantly, the location could not be beat! It was just down the street from the waterfront if you wanted to take a boat across the Potomac to DC and lots of great little restaurants and shops to choose from. The most important detail of this hotel was I was allowed... More

My room smelled funky when I entered but thought it might be because AC wasn't low enough. I left for a few hours AC down to 61 this place smells like wet dog! My nose is congested and the bed sucks! I would never recommend this place Hampton Inn right next door is way much better.

Nicest hotel I've stayed in in a long time. Every thing from check in, the room, to check out was first class. I actually had a bathroom with a shower that was so large that there was a claw foot bathtub in the shower!

This hotel appears to have been redone recently. Everything is clean, well decorated and very appealing. No surprise given the price. The people at the front desk during the day are very helpful and knowledgeable. The people at the front desk at night, don't know a think about their community. Not helpful when your looking for a place to eat.... More

It pains me to write a negative review of the Lorien, as we are locals and this has always been one of our favorite Alexandria hotels. After our anniversary trip to Charleston got cancelled thanks to Hurricane Matthew, we decided to celebrate with a little staycation at Lorien. We booked a specialty suite for one night and were looking forward... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week. The service was excellent and most of the staff very friendly, especially Frances at the front desk.

We were in the DC area for a week long reunion and stayed at the Lorien. The location as noted by others could not be better. The metro two blocks away, it's right on King st. with out door cafés and shops, a trolley runs all day, and a beautiful court yard at the hotel for outdoor dining and drinks.... More
