Davidson selected to operate Lorien Hotel & Spa in Old Town Alexandria

Leading hospitality management company increases footprint in Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

ATLANTA – Davidson Hospitality Group announced the addition of Lorien Hotel & Spa to its management portfolio, the third Washington D.C.-area hotel to be managed under the company’s Pivot lifestyle operating vertical. Located in the heart of Virginia’s historic Old Town Alexandria, the 107-room boutique hotel is just minutes from the metropolitan bustle of the nation’s capital and within easy access of the neighboring Virginia countryside.

Lorien Hotel & Spa is an oasis for rejuvenation that embodies a West Coast vibe of casual elegance and laid-back luxury, nestled among the charming Old Town brick architecture in an area known for its boutique shops, fine galleries and cobblestone streets. Guest rooms are outfitted with freestanding tubs and lush bedding while Lorien Spa, Alexandria’s only hotel spa, offers five treatment rooms and a menu of massages, facials and body treatments to revitalize the mind, body and soul. To refuel and nourish, the hotel features Brabo, a contemporary American brasserie. For social events and intimate meetings with sophistication and style, the hotel has more than 5,600 square feet of function space including private courtyards and terraces. 

“Community, authenticity, inspiring food & beverage, and genuine people are among qualities shared by the hotels in our Pivot lifestyle portfolio and ones we see in the Lorien,” said Thom Geshay, CEO & President, Davidson Hospitality Group. “We approach operations of the Lorien with new energy and perspectives, along with a mindset of value creation, and look forward to creating a lasting impact with our ownership partners.”

In addition to Lorien Hotel & Spa, Pivot operates Thompson Washington D.C. and Hotel Madera in the D.C. metropolitan area. The company also manages Hilton Garden Inn Arlington/Courthouse Plaza and Hilton Alexandria Mark Center under its Davidson Hotels heritage brand.
