I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, it's a small intimate hotel with very friendly staff and perfect location! Andrew the bellman and Jackie at the front desk was very helpful. However, the restaurant at the hotel was a huge disappointment - I would not eat there or order drinks. My husband order a Bloody Mary that he said was... More

We went to Dallas on a spur of the moment trip. We started off staying at the Crown Plaza. However, that was a complete disappointment so I went online and found this hidden gem. The staff were pleasant and the location was out of the way but still close to everything. The pool offered cabanas and pool drink and food... More

I stayed here for business travel on a state rate and it was well worth the price. The room is European design, with comfortable beds and a steam shower! It was clean and well maintained. I loved the leopard print robe, too! As a member of their frequent stay program, I loved being able to raid the mini-bar! The hotel... More

I stayed here while on business in Dallas and based on the reviews & photos, was very excited for my stay. Unfortunately, I was quite underwhelmed. When I arrived, my room smelled of cigarette smoke. I called down to the front desk and she said smoking was never permitted in the hotel so she came up and sprayed the room... More

Held a business meeting at this hotel July 30 and 31 2014. Great rooms, great service, great food and best of all - great people to work with at this hotel from the front desk to the top management and everyone in between and all around. Would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat - it's now my "go... More

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
