Donna was amazing to work with - extremely reassuring and informative, and very thoughtful. She helped us pick delicious options for our dinner and cocktail hour, and set everything up beautifully. Donna was so considerate, and helped us create a welcoming and warm environment for all our guests. The venue was a perfect fit for an intimate, family-centric wedding. It was a unique set-up, and looked beautiful.

By far the best experience to work with the Lorien and especially with Donna! Our day would not have been the same without her passion, dedication and keen eye for detail! If you are looking for a unique, elegant and culinary experience for your wedding, look no further than the Lorien. Donna, Director of Catering took care of every detail big and small to make our wedding day the perfect day for us. We cannot express how beautiful everything was, how delicious all the food was and how everyone at the hotel took care of us. Thank you Donna and your team!

Beautiful space, excellent food, perfect location, roof-top terrace is wonderful, and we cannot praise the catering staff enough! It was the perfect selection for our simple, yet elegant wedding ceremony and reception.

The Lorien Hotel in Old Town Alexandria was a wonderful choice for our wedding reception. We had 40 guests and that is a good size for this venue. The food is prepared by the chef at Brabo and it was superb. The setting and decor were beautiful and exactly as we requested. And the staff working the day of the event were very professional and helpful. Thank you!

I've always wanted to get married at the Lorien, but our wedding guest list pushed us over the 100 person max... all is not lost though, and we are looking at instead having our REHEARSAL dinner at the Lorien - catered by the AMAZING Brabo restaurant, the value and options are 5-star... we cannot wait! Plus Kristin has been super generous and has helped us feel completely comfortable with our options and the event space. We are putting down our deposit in the next few days and are thrilled!

Lorien Hotel & Spa! You went beyond that level of excellence. What an amazing wedding day. How incredibly amazing! The Kimpton hotel had a wedding expo in which we toured three of their properties in Alexandria. When entering The Lorien Hotel & Spa and knew it was the perfect fit for us after months of looking at different venues in surround area within the tri-state. Kristen Alley Corrigan led her staff who provided such an facinating and captivating experience. From meeting with Kristen in the planning stages I knew everything would go well. Onsite restaurant, 'Brabo' by Robert Wiedmaier, would provide the catering for the evening. Being one of Northern VA Best restaurants, we knew the food would be amazing. Our ceremony would take place on the 6th floor terrace and later reception would continue downstairs in the living room, Liberty Terrace w/firepit, and independence room.These rooms had a wonderful flow that made it feel like home. Dinner would be served in the Liberty room. Everything would be set up as planned. We arrived the night before at The Lorien Hotel & Spa Reservation desk made the first impression with such professionalism and were ready with answers to any and every question. We were escorted to our suite. The next morning went to the Spa for much needed message. Once we left the spa and reached our rooms we were ready for the rest of the days festivies. It was clear that the staff was prepared and ready to go for the days events. Our vendors were well taken care of as they arrived with their services. Kristen greeted us and continued to ensure everything went well during the evening. I was able to breathe easier knowing Kristen and staff had everything under control. I just released and enjoyed our day. What an amazing wedding day. Our guests are still raving. Lorien Hotel & Spa, Brabo Restaurant, Kristen Alley Corrigan and staff! How Magical! What an enchanting evening you created for us! For our Special Day! Thank you! Thank you!

The Venue and the food were fantastic. Kristin was always helpful and made sure everything went great on our day. Everybody who attended had glowing comments about how helpful Kristin was to them during our event. If I had to nit pik on anything, the A&V guy who set up the sound system was not that knowledgeable - but it was fine. Definitely recommend Kristin and the Lorien.

I hosted my wedding here on Saturday Sept. 5, 2015. It was a brunch style intimate wedding (reception started at 11 AM ended at 3PM) with 75 guests on Labor Day weekend. I was really nervous about the space because it does look small but after seeing it set up for another event I knew it would work. Plus, reading the reviews from other brides having small weddings helped ease mu anxiety. This place is really a little gem tucked away off of busy King Street. The entire hotel has a very earthy yet sophisticated and elegant feel. Perfect for those who don’t want a hotel venue but don’t want that hotel feel if you get my drift. The main entrance has brick everywhere which gives the space a lot of character and is great for pictures. Each conference space adding a different feel and we loved the fact that our wedding wasn’t in one big conference room. Our elderly guests enjoyed the comfort of the library, the young crowd loved the outdoor patio, and other guests mingled in the different rooms. The layout provides a whole different feel which made it that more intimate and unique. The wedding was catered by BRABO and it was amazing!!! I was nervous about having a “brunch style” wedding but it totally worked and all of our guests commented on the quality of the food. We had the typical breakfast food but also did salmon and salads. Our guests loved the uniqueness our reception offered and many commented that they had never had a brunch at a wedding. To top things off we also had a belini and mimosa bar which was a big hit! We experienced a few hiccups however the general manager Tobias Arff personally apologized and remedied the situation. Overall I was pleased with the staff and I am so happy we chose this venue. It was perfect for our small yet intimate wedding and you will not be disappointed. Special thank you to Nakena Griggs the Sales Manager who worked with our wedding planner and really made this a successful event.

The Lorien Hotel & Spa was the perfect venue for our wedding (we had a little over 75 guests) and we would highly recommend it to those looking to have a well run, low stress wedding day! Particularly, Kristin, our venue coordinator, was amazing and I don't think things would have run as smoothly that day if it wasn't for her. She helped us to keep on schedule and told us where to stand and when. She knew and helped us prepare for all the little details that one doesn't really think of until the moment comes. The food came out perfectly and the staff was very attentive. It's definitely worth every penny and I'm so glad we were able to work with Kristin and have our wedding at the Lorien.

We had our wedding reception at the Lorien in May 2015. It was the perfect size venue for our group (65 guests). We were drawn to the Lorien because of the location, and, in fact, after the wedding, many of our guests told us how much they enjoyed visiting and exploring Old Town Alexandria. We also loved the Lorien itself because of the unique layout of the reception space. Instead of just one large, impersonal ballroom, you get 4 beautiful spaces, including a comfy “living room” area and an outdoor patio. Another perk is that the Lorien has a contract with an event furniture/décor rental company, which made it fairly easy to rent the items (including chairs, linens, and tableware) that we wanted to customize the space and create the atmosphere we were envisioning for our reception. The food is catered by BRABO, the adjoining restaurant. Everything was delicious and our guests raved about their meals! All of the staff were wonderful, especially Kristin Alley Corrigan, Wedding Specialist/Director of Catering. It was such a pleasure working with Kristin- she is kind and always made us feel like she cared about us and our celebration. She is professional and great at her job – she took the time to meet with us on several occasions and was always responsive to phone calls and emails. She assisted us with selecting our menu and even worked with the catering staff to create a custom appetizer and cocktail. She also created a reception timeline for us which was very helpful. On our wedding day, she was there throughout the day as our vendors made their deliveries and did their setup. She also stayed late into the evening to make sure everything was going smoothly and, perhaps most importantly, make sure that WE were happy with the food and venue. Everything exceeded our (high) expectations!

Kristin is a pleasure to work with from beginning to the end. We had a lot of details for our wedding and even more decors to decorate our event and the entire staff was very accommodating. There was a stressful moment during the reception where a few guests were not on the guest list and did not have seats on the table. The Lorien Staff took care of the situation right away with poise and speed that the other guests did not even notice there was a problem. Food was amazing and the ambiance is perfect. Me and my husband highly recommend this vendor.

My wife, Connie and I were really happy with the wedding and reception we had at the Lorien on April 18. Of course the hotel, the food, and the venue in general were great. But what really made this such a wonderful day was all the work and planning and actual execution of every detail concerning the event. Kristin Alley (now Corrigan) was an absolute joy to work with. From the first time we met her, when we were looking at different venues, we knew that that the Lorien would be perfect and that Kristin would be great to work with. She was really excited to be helping us with the planning…everything from the menus to the appetizers to drinks, to little details like the unity candle and everything else that goes into it. She took her time with us and got to know us a little bit so she could better help us with the planning. She seems to really love her work…it was as if she was planning her own event! Once we settled on menu items and everything else, she made sure everything was confirmed and she personally coordinated setting everything up on the day of the wedding. She was very professional and detail oriented, yet friendly and down to earth. During the event she continued to make sure everything moved the way it was supposed to and insured that we were happy. We could not have been more pleased with everything!
