This was my first time staying at the Lorien and I really enjoyed it! We were fortunate enough to take advantage of a last minute deal and booked a room for a couple of nights after the recent blizzard moved out of the area. We ended up with a room with views of both King Street and the little courtyard in front of the entrance. It was beautiful! With the exception of some snow plows the street noise was actually pretty minimal and not disruptive. The beds were very comfortable and made me yearn for some sleep-in time. I did knock one star though for the bathroom.... The door is a pretty fancy frosted glass panel on track wheels that you slide left and right but it never actually closes or locks. This leaves a nice gap on the side that could leave you awkwardly locking eyes with someone coming into the room. It may be a minor nitpick but depending on your comfort level with your partner/family/friends/etc. It could be an annoyance.

This was my second time staying at a Kimpton Hotel. I am sold on the brand. It was an all around great stay in a great location with an extremely helpful staff.

Stayed at the Lorien for a business meeting for the Lancaster Chamber. Things I enjoyed. Very clean, super nice staff, free wifi, Dunkin Donuts around the corner, and everything is walking distance or take the free trolly that runs you to the other end of town. My recommendations. Have your vehicle valeted, these guys are the best. I forgot my phone charger in the car, front desk called the valet and they went to retrieve it for me, no questions asked. They asked me what I was looking to do during my down time, when I told them antiques, they googled all the local shops walking distance from the hotel. They went above and beyond their job description. I would stay here again.

I highly recommend you read the reviews dedicated to the spa before you visit (on Yelp and Google)! I wish I had read the detailed 2/3 star reviews - they're experiences were similarly abysmal. I completed a survey sent by Lorien Spa after my facial. Due to my answers I was contacted by the spa under the guise of "hoping to improve my experience during my next visit". That was not their true intention at all. Lisa M ended up telling me legally I can not return because their products caused a negative reaction. I then received a cancellation email about my next appointment. In reality my survey explained that extractions weren't completed, chemical peels are pushed here, and their products are pushed on you! My face looked really calm when I left but the day after I realized it is because they used a tinted sunscreen and didn't do extractions. I was really disappointed because I love Kimptons- but this spa feels like a cheap afterthought in a nice Kimpton hotel.Oh well. Let's put this one on the AVOID AT ALL COSTS list. I recommend Red Door Spa in Arlington as an alternative. They're about $25 more expensive per service but their products are safe (and recognized world wide) and their service is impeccable.

This review is for the Lorien Spa only. As a treat to ourselves, my boyfriend and I decided to get facials and massages this weekend. Since we live in Old Town, we walked over to the spa and booked an appointment with the staff onsite. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. We asked to see the shower rooms prior to making an appointment, which they allowed. They also took the time to explain the packages. We were hoping for a couples' massage but ultimately decided to get separate packages since a couples' massage for 50 minutes is $310. I chose the Sweet Dreams package, which includes a massage, facial, and scalp massage (115 minutes for $250). My boyfriend opted for the Gentlemen's Dream package, which includes a deep therapeutic massage and a facial (100 minutes for $220). Even though we couldn't be in the same room together for the massage, the staff made a note to have both our facials start at the same time and assured us that we would have time together in the relaxation room. Come Sunday, we headed back to Lorien. One of the ladies handed us keys to our lockers and a binder with a small pamphlet to fill out. She led me to the ladies' shower room and explained everything in there. My locker contained a robe, flip flops, and an extra large fluffy towel. The shower room has a vanity with seats where you can blow-dry and style your hair. There are large containers on an adjacent bookshelf that have makeup remover wipes, combs, and exfoliating pads. There's a steam room and a large sink with cleanser, body lotion, mouthwash, and facial mist. Across from the shower room is the relaxation room. There's a table with teas and cucumber water. Seats 8 with chairs and benches backed with huge pillows and surrounded with candles, diffuser scented sticks, and orchids. There are magazines for pleasure reading as well. We waited in the relaxation room before our facial specialists. Ludmila did my facial and she was very gentle. She cleansed, exfoliated, and steamed my face first before doing the extractions. I've never had a professional do extractions on my face before, so there was certainly more pressure and pain but that's to be expected. Ludmila advised me to use certain products for my acne-prone skin and said she will bring some recommended Kerstin Florian products to the front desk. Afterwards, she did a natural enzyme peel, a deep cleansing facial massage, hand and arm massage, and a scalp massage with lavender oils. The facial was wonderful and my skin felt so smooth and clean afterwards. Jason did my massage. He was very gentle and targeted my problem areas (neck, shoulders). All in all, it was a very, very relaxing afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed both my facial and massage. It's a bit on the pricey end, with both our packages and tip coming out to be over $600. The specialists are all fantastic and staff are wonderful. Great little pick-me-up!

My wife and stayed at the Lorien on 9/27/14 for a quick date night get away in Alexandria. The hotel was clean and staff was efficient and helpful. I am still not quite convinced it was worth the price, but I can't complain too much.

The hotel staff was professional and very accommodating. The room was beautiful and comfortable. All around the stay was relaxing. Wish I would have had more time to enjoy the spa. Would definitely recommend and revisit
