My family and I stayed here for a visit to SMU which is directly across the street. The location of the hotel can not be beat. It is an easy walk to great shopping and restaurants at Highland Park villages. The hotel is clean, friendly and very welcoming. We stayed in a suite with a king bed and a pullout... More

My wife and I were in town last week to do some shopping at North Park. We got a decent rate here plus I love the feel of a small quaint boutique hotel. It is directly across the street from the SMU campus and no more than 5-10 minute Uber ride to downtown. I really enjoyed the property, very clean... More

My husband and I always enjoy staying at this hotel as a little weekend getaway. The location is great and within walking distance of Snyder Plaza and right across the street from SMU. We've stayed in several different rooms from king to a suite and have generally been very happy with the accommodations. The pool is heated, (deepest part is... More

Hotel Lumen was a great pre-Honeymoon stay for my wife, and I before we flew out for the week. It is perfectly located in northern Dallas for a quick jump to anything you would want to do day, or night. Their location is tucked away, and very low-key, which allows for a more relaxing stay, rather than a downtown high-rise... More

We began staying at the Hotel Lumen when our daughter started SMU four years ago. There is nothing closer to the university. It's a wonderful small hotel that caters to their guests. In the four years that we stayed with them we have never had a complaint or problem. The hotel is clean, comfortable and convenient. Although the decor is... More

We arrived on a Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised with how nice everything was all around the hotel. We asked the front desk if there was a complimentary car that would be able to take us for a short trip down the road for some entertainment that evening. The driver of the car happened to be the person who... More

Without question, the best hotel I have ever stayed at in the US. Location next to SMU campus allows for a bit more space than if you stayed downtown.The room was big, clean and comfy. There is a great pool area and a wonderful restaurant. Usually, hotel restaurants are not high quality, but this restaurant was outstanding. A healthy and... More

This is my first Lumen stay since the renovation and although it's lost its intimacy, it makes up for that in hipness and community. I really enjoyed this stay. I'm a kimpton inner circle member and I think I'd put this hotel in my top 5 for kimptons. Here's why: - love the simole, modern, clean decor - friendly, attentive... More

The Lumen is a modern Kimpton hotel. It is across the street from SMU so a great place to stay when you visit campus. There are restaurants and shops a couple of blocks away. There is a complimentary happy hour most evenings, with good wine and small snacks. The staff is very nice. The beds are, in my opinion, too... More

I'm a long time Kimpton Hotel fan and have stayed in quite a few of their properties around the country. Years ago I had stayed at the Lumen and was very disappointed and as a result when I found myself in Dallas I would always choose to stay at the Palomar and never really gave the Lumen another thought.
