Because of a storm, we lost power in our original wedding venue. We had 5 hours to plan a new wedding at the Lorien. The staff was amazing, flexible, and responsive. Because of their help we had a wonderful wedding at a beautiful venue. I would certainly recommend them to any bride!

The Lorien Hotel hosted both my ceremony and reception for my wedding and it was absolutely the most perfect venue! The hotel itself is very modern and chic and the staff was awesome. Christina the event coordinator was such a pleasure to work with and was always available to answer all my question all the way up to the wedding day and was also there in person for the day of the wedding. The food served here was also amazing, many of our guests commented at how good the food was. We really loved everything about this hotel and the staff and are so happy we choose this venue for our special day!

I used the Lorien Hotel & Spa for my reception and accommodations for guests. The event planners were incredibly helpful, flexible and accommodating. The hotel staff was delightful and all of our guests were very pleased with their experience. The food was excellent, and all was delivered at a very reasonable price. I would do it all again at the Lorien and will definitely consider them for events in the future.

We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the Lorien. It is the perfect venue for a intimate, relaxed, elegant wedding. The package they offer includes the space, food, wedding cake, a suite for the wedding night, and is a great value. Christina was very helpful, responsive and had good suggestions for different aspects of the ceremony and reception. Some of our guests had a problem making a room reservation at our room block rate, and when I contacted Christina she immediately resolved the situation. The staff was also very friendly, helpful and responsive. Joanne Decoux, the hotel's pastry chef, offered several different flavors and options for the presentation of the cake, which we appreciated. The cake, and all of the food, was delicious. It was fun working with them, and I'd definitely consider using them for other events. You can't go wrong with the Lorien.

The Lorien's wedding package was a fantastic value. We decided to have all our events at the Lorien, and for our very small wedding of only 25 people the Lorien was the perfect size! None of the rooms felt "too empty." Everyone at the wedding told me how much they enjoyed the food, and I have to say the food was the best I've ever eaten at the wedding. I'm not one for "details," but Christina, the event planner made sure she had me covered well in advance of the wedding. I'm sure it was her behind the scenes expertise that made the evening go like clockwork. The hotel is already so beautifully decorated we barely had to add a thing, and the hotel's spaces really lend themselves to creative and beautiful photography. I have to give a special mention to the staff, who were uniformly very pleasant and supremely helpful. They even helped us return my husband's tuxedo when we realized that the tuxedo rental place was closed the day we had intended to return it (before taking off on our honeymoon). The service went above and beyond, and made my wedding an absolutely low-stress affair. My girlfriends all commented how calm and collected I was, and I think it was totally because I knew that Christina and the Lorien staff had everything taken care of.

The cake was exactly how I had envisioned it thanks to pastry chef Kate Baltran. She worked with us on every last detail ensuring it was what we wanted. It was helpful to have the cake tasting event, although it was only one week before our wedding. Wish it had been earlier to ease the stress during the planning process.

Although I initially wanted a funky, unusual type of venue like a warehouse or loft space, I'm glad I decided on the Lorien, a beautiful new boutique hotel by Kimpton. It's romantic, modern with traditional touches and calming. The wedding package offered is extraordinarily comprehensive and all of the catering came from Brabo, a Robert Wiedemeier restaurant connected to the hotel. We were hoping for some decent wedding food, but were blown away by the quality of each course - especially the vegetarian entree. In addition, a wedding cake was included in the package and I couldn't believe how smooth and luscious it tasted. I felt lucky to be so taken care of and to be assisted by such friendly staff. Jeana was also a dream to work with. I'd recommend this as a wedding location in a heartbeat.

Couldn’t have asked for better service, attention, quality, care or sense of peace of mind from the Lorien for our wedding and reception. Donna is an absolute goddess of all things wedding/event oriented - and that’s aside from being a deeply fabulous person. Her guidance, suggestions, recommendations and overall attention to detail are extraordinarily spot-on. We simply could not have been in better hands. On top of all this, the food was fantastic. If you’re going to have beef at your reception, very highly recommend the short ribs. But even the chicken was sublime. This venue, and the rest of the entire staff at the Lorien, was spectacular. It truly made for exactly the wedding and reception we truly wanted.

In our search for a local wedding venue that wasn't going to break the bank, we stumbled upon the Lorien. Immediately we fell in love with the atmosphere and the staff! Kristin, the event planner, was phenomenal and helped us every step of the way. Once we selected the Lorien, Kristin gave us all the tools to set up the perfect wedding; walking us through different food and drink options, as well as decorations and timelines. Kristin worked to create a specific menu and drink options for us, as well as adjusting timelines and decorations. The day of the wedding she was there coordinating set up of the decorations we prepared and coordinated with all the vendors, though we didn't have to have too many vendors, as the Lorien had almost everything in house. The staff that assisted Kristin, notably Dionte and Nancy tended to our every need, anticipating our request or foreseeing the next move, and took action to make our day perfect. The attentiveness and hard work of the staff at the Lorien is unparalleled. We were concerned with the multiple room approach to the evening, but the setup and staff made things so smooth, that the rooms were just what we wanted and needed! You won't find a better place in Old Town Alexandria for a wedding!

The food was delicious, the venue was beautiful and the staff was very attentive. The Director of Catering (Kristin) was especially helpful in making recommendations for the event and on the date of our event. Everything was top quality. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.

The Lorien Hotel is the perfect venue for a smaller wedding. Our wedding was 86 people and we originally thought we would want to do a historic house or museum but once we started investigating it was going to be way too much work for us managing multiple vendors. By chance we ran across the Lorien Hotel after we had dismissed most hotels because we didn't want a huge ballroom for a small wedding. We were so incredibly happy we ended up at the Lorien! The food was out of this world and we received so many complements on it including that it was the best wedding food they ever had from multiple people. I loved that the cake was included since I didn't care that much about it. In the end the cake was beautiful and actually tasted good! The feel of the hotel was modern and classy and our pictures are beautiful. Everyone at the hotel was so accommodating and our guests all felt very well taken care of. The location in Old Town was great because it was close to the metro and people could either walk or take the trolley to the heart of Old Town. I can't say enough good things about this venue for smaller weddings!
