I had a "girls sleepover" at the Lorien for my birthday, September 15, 2012. I and my guests had an AWESOME time. We had no complaints!

In particular Tiffani who was at the front desk during our stay and David who was one of the valets. Both were went above and beyond....

All the reviews are correct! The staff worked hard to ensure that I was having a nice time. This property is very close to everything that you want to do. Want to catch the Metro? Well it's 300 yards away! Want great food? Everything your mouth desires you can probably find on King Street. 4 stars all the way!!

Driving 5 hours from the New York area to DC can be quite stressful, and arriving at the Lorien takes off the edge. There is curbside parking nearby, and the valet is ready to help if not.

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