Perfectly Placed on the Old Town Map

When it comes to longitude and latitude, we scored big-time. With Washington DC and the expansive fields of the Virginia countryside as friendly neighbors, we’re lucky to get to pick between these different settings, depending on that day’s goals — and mood. We can play downtown all day - traipsing around the capital’s memorials, monuments, and museums, later retiring to Brabo’s tranquil dining space in our urban oasis. Or we can work hard all day in Alexandria in the meeting spaces of Kimpton Lorien Hotel & Spa, only to rev things up after sunset with some dancing or a show downtown. Get a lay of the land with up-to-date directions, and you’ll quickly see why our location can’t be beat.
