I was disappointed in this hotel as Kimpton properties are usually very accommodating. The staff were smug & not helpful when I had a problem with my room. There was also construction outside of my window that contributed to the miserable stay. I don't believe the hotel lives up to all of the hype & miss the other Kimpton Hotel... More

I stayed at the Hotel Lumen the last week of October and it was a great stay. I had two different rooms a King Room with a lovely balcony that overlooked the pool and also a large suite on the other side. The suite had a nice kitchenette and a large tub that was great for relaxing. I really enjoyed... More

If you are traveling with pets, this is your hotel. If you have ever traveled with pets, and feel that you have to sneak in and out, or the rooms smell of pet odor, then you would understand. The staff is overly accommodating with both you and your pets. The employee even took the leash of my 70 Australian shepherd... More

We have stayed at the Lumen many times over the last 8 years and it keeps getting better. The staff is attentive, the rooms are large and comfortable. Easy access to the SMU campus but only minutes to downtown Dallas. Very modern and has a great atmosphere. We always try to stay here. Don't miss the rooftop. Its great for... More

This hotel was a last minute booking for a business trip to Dallas. The rooms are clean and uber modern. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The entire hotel and even the pool are like one of the amazing boutique hotels in South Beach. I would stay here for business and personal. It has made me a total fan... More

I really liked the Lumen. Comfortable room and great bed - I slept so well despite my jet lag. Jon Paul on reception was so friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my challah French toast at breakfast and found check out a painless and smooth experience. It is right opposite SMU campus and I had a nice walk this morning checking... More

Stayed here for a capus tour of SMU. The location was perfect, acess and parking a breeze. The vibe is very cool. Our room was super comfortable, quiet (despite being across the hall from elevator), and met our needs quite well. Plenty of outlets for charging devices, comfy beds. I highly recommend.

We have the ability to stay at any of the wonderful Dallas hotels and have done so over the years. That said, we love the feel and the energy of the newly refurbished and newly built Lumen. We have found the staff here to always be warm, friendly and professional. We had a late arrival, I called to let the... More

My family and I have stayed at quite a few Kimpton hotels around the country, and the Hotel Lumen has been one of the best. The check in was so easy, the staff were all really helpful and friendly, the on site restaurant was great for breakfast each morning. The location is fantastic, within walking distance of our favorite pizza... More

The staff of this hotel go above and beyond to make visitors feel at ease. A gentleman, I think his name was Andrew, hosted the hotel's free happy hour. He did a great job! The valets and the maids were very friendly also. The hotel pool and rooftop terrace are awesome features as well. I loved the modern design of... More
