Another fabulous stay (our fourth or fifth) at the Lorien last week. When we lived in the area we'd book a room for special occasions; now that we're out-of-towners we're happy to have a tried-and-true place when we come back to visit. The location is truly great (proximity to the King Street metro and the fabulous Vermilion restaurant) and the...

Somewhat hidden, but having stayed there multiple times, I know that it is one of the best places to stay in Northern Virginia. The staff is exceedingly well trained, attentive, and professional. The rooms are well appointed. The location is very close to a Metro stop. The restaurant is excellent for breakfast or dinner (as is their more casual restaurant,...

“Suites on 6th floor have big open roof top balconies. Perfect for gatherings but no privacy if you're in a neighboring room/balcony.”
