Sitting about two blocks from the King Street metro station in Alexandria, Virginia, the Kimpton Lorien Hotel & Spa offers both luxury and relaxation. Renovated in 2018, the accommodations' blue and white color palette is designed to feel fresh and cool, and there's a hint of Southern comfort in the decor. Plus, guest rooms and suites feature extra touches, such as sumptuous Frette linens, original artwork and claw foot bathtubs or rainfall showerheads, providing a tranquil setting that is ideal for relaxing. If you aren't already at ease, head to this Kimpton outpost's in-house spa, which recent guests describe as a mini-oasis. Previous visitors also praised the eclectic culinary offerings served at Brabo by Robert Wiedmaier and the fresh selection of gourmet cheeses available at Brabo Tasting Room.
