From the bellman to the front desk clerk to the restaurant staff, everyone treated us with the utmost respect and kindness. The lobby and pool area are beautiful, but the rooms in the old tower are nothing to write home about. The bed was soft and in need of replacement, or maybe because it did not have a box spring...

What a great hidden gem in a neighborhood setting...Hotel Lumen is nestled in the Park Cities across the street from the SMU campus. Although we've never spent the night, the Hotel Lumen is a wonderful place to escape while not venturing too far afield. The Front Room is an intimate spot for a beverage and a bite to eat (chopped... More

We stayed here when we were in Dallas for a few days, visiting the George Bush library. The hotel is right across the street from SMU where the library is located. The service was great in the hotel, and the on-site restaurant was very good, both for dinner and for Sunday brunch.

The Lumen Hotel has a modern and pleasant feel about it. Alas, the looks deceived! As mentioned in a previous review the air conditioning units in many of the rooms are appallingly loud. Furthermore, before 7am there were loud vacuuming or drilling noises. There is no room service or breakfast or even coffee available before 7am, not great for the... More

Located by SMU there are places that you can walk to for some pretty decent food along hillcrest. My room was really large and they take dogs! Stayed 5 days and have zero complaints other than the food really wasn't anything special......or any good. I would def find another place to eat. All said and done I would be happy... More

The Hotel Lumen is a great little hotel - very stylish, super comfy beds, great food, fantastic location, cool vibe. The BEST part of staying at the Hotel Lumen is the Staff. John Paul is the very best hotel front desk person I have ever encountered. This was our second visit to the hotel, and it was even better than... More

This pet friendly hotel is truly pet friendly! We have stayed at other Dallas hotels that allowed pets, but Hotel Lumen was truly exceptional. Even if you aren't traveling with a furry friend, the service is exceptional.

This is the second time we've stayed here. We love this hotel. Small-ish, and comfortable. The rooms are nice, clean, and have a modern theme. Pool in the middle of the hotel gives a nice feel since you can see it from the lobby and many rooms. The restaurant and bar are excellent. Had really good service throughout our stay

Great kimpton experience ( coffee on every floor, evening wine, cool pool, responsive& friendly staff, quick valet, great location' fabulous rooftop terrace) but the suite in the older tower was a bit odd. Wonderful balcony and great bath with large soaking tub and separate steam shower. But living room is windowless and very, very dark ( one large floor lamp,... More

Thank you for your review and comments, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We of course have remodeled both towers as they are both brand new, however just have different room configurations. So that of course is one of the great things about the Lumen, even though it is a small hotel we have a large selection of... More

Lovely small hotel which great services. Clean room and good sleep quality. Enjoy free coffee in the morning and there are some happy hour free wine which I didn't join in. The pool was small but nice. Gym was very limited but better than nothing.
