Stayed in the Lorien in the spa room. Although it was only on the 2nd floor, it was very quiet. The room was comfortable and the tub fits two. :-). Easy to get to the hotel from the metro stop, even with a suitcase and construction. Hotel is a close next to many things (stores, restaurants, etc.) and very walkable to other things in Alexandria. Since I was there over the weekend, street parking was abundant, and free. The hotel staff were friendly. Overall, one of my favorite Kimpton stays yet.
The Lorien was fantastic!! My stay began with the front desk employees, Day and Syneese, helping me frantically get ahold of the Lyft driver because I had left my phone in the car. They went ABOVE AND BEYOND to help retrieve my phone! I was so, so grateful for their kindness.
In addition, the amenities at the Lorien exceeded expectations-- the room was so comfortable and access to the spa was a great bonus!
Will definitely stay again!
