Kimpton Lorien Hotel and Spa has completed a $2.51 million redesign to the hotel’s 107 guest rooms including 16 suites, signature outdoor terraces, hallway corridors, public areas, adjacent French brasserie BRABO, and 5,600 square feet of meeting, wedding, and event space.

Kimpton Lorien Hotel and Spa’s newly revealed design carefully blends Old Town Alexandria’s classic architectural details with contemporary, sophisticated twists, subdued colors and a touch of whimsy with the help of design firms MONOGRAM at BBGM, that led the guest room, corridor and suite design concepts, and David Hill Design, which refreshed the living room and event space décor.
Kimpton Lorien Hotel and Spa’s newly redesigned guest rooms feature a thoughtfully minimal, yet luxurious atmosphere where guests can retreat and rejuvenate from the day’s activities. The bed features chic headboards with light wood, delicately tufted chevron panels, luxurious Frette linens accented with blue sewn throw pillows and built-in modern frosted glass lighting. Luxurious bathrooms are entered through over-sized barn doors made of opaque glass, and feature contemporary grey stone vanities. Select bathrooms feature elegant claw foot bathtubs and Turkish rainfall showers.
The hotel’s signature Presidential and Diplomat Suites are designed for luxuriating, whether getting ready for a wedding day, prepping for a night on the town or even hosting a private meeting. The multi-room suites feature parlors with relaxing sectional seating, reading chairs, and oversized bathrooms with spa rain showers. The spacious Presidential Suite also features a contemporary dining set and built-in wet bar perfect for hosting receptions, bridal parties or meetings of up to 10 guests. Many suites, including the Presidential and Diplomat Suites, feature breathtaking spacious private terraces with sweeping views of Old Town, some as large as 700 square feet.
Lorien Hotel and Spa is also the ideal venue for meetings and events with nearly 5,600 square feet of event space including access to private courtyards and terraces as well as French-inspired cuisine directly from Executive Chef Sebastien Rondier of the hotel’s adjacent restaurant, BRABO. The Liberty Room, the hotel’s largest space at 1,250 square feet, can be separated into two function spaces or used whole, accommodating up to 100 guests banquet style and up to 125 for receptions.
Xenia Hotels and Resorts, a real estate investment trust that invests primarily in premium full service and lifestyle hotels, owns the Lorien Hotel and Spa.
