Kimpton's Lorien Hotel & Spa in Old Town Alexandria revealed a $2.5 million redesign in April, spanning all 107 guest rooms including 16 suites, outdoor terraces, hallway corridors, public areas, adjacent French brasserie Brabo, and 5,600 square feet of meeting, wedding, and event space. The new design channels the architecture of Old Town, using a color palette of purple, copper, grey, blue, and green. Monogram at BBGM led the guest room, corridor, and suite design concepts, while David Hill Design refreshed the living room and event space decor.
The divisible Liberty Room, the hotel’s largest space at 1,250 square feet, accommodates 100 guests banquet-style or 125 for receptions. The 730-square-foot Independence Room holds breakout space for 40 guests or cocktail hours for 85 and leads directly out to the open-air Freedom Terrace, an intimate outdoor courtyard just outside hotel’s living room. The 756-square-foot terrace has a large ivy-covered trellis, chrome accents, oversize mirrors, and a contemporary in-ground fire feature. The terrace can hold banquets of 20 guests or receptions of 45.
The hotel's suites are also available for private meetings, and many include spacious private terraces with sweeping views of Old Town, some as large as 700 square feet. The Presidential Suite is outfitted with a contemporary dining set and built-in wet bar suited for receptions or meetings of as many as 10 guests.
