Stayed at the Hotel Lumen for 1 night for a friend's wedding at Perkins Chapel at SMU campus. The location is very convenient to SMU, literally right across the street. As with all Kimpton hotels, evening wine reception was fabulous (enjoyed the little snacks). Great value for this part of town.

We spent one night when I took my son to visit SMU. The staff is both friendly and efficient. It took under a minute to retrieve our car from the valet whenever we needed it. Our room was comfortable and clean and had a fun vibe. Since it is directly across the street from campus, you can't beat the location... More

I had originally booked a two night stay at this hotel for a business trip, and was looking forward to staying at a Kimpton property in Dallas. All of the Kimpton hotels I've stayed at have been fantastic. The Hotel Lumen is situated right across from SMU in the heart of the University Park neighborhood, which is a clean historic... More

Pleasantly surprised. This little gem rivals any of the big names in terms of quality and service. Clean, spacious rooms, modern amenities, and a car service up and down the strip. You could hear a pin drop, but nearby school was on spring break, so not sure how noisy it is when the campus is bustling. Hotel restaurant was outstanding... More

I organized a weekend retreat for a small group of women and chose the Hotel Lumen. It was an excellent choice. My dealings with all the staff--the event planners [Elizabeth & Kaley], the event staff [Rosa & Carina], the Front Room general manager Brown, and waitstaff [Lacey & John], the front desk and the valets--were friendly, professional and caring.

I stayed two nights at the Hotel Lumen and had one of the best experiences ever. My room was immaculate, and the service was spectacular. I am vegan, and the chef made certain that I had a gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner (No boring plate of steamed vegetables here!) even though vegan dishes were not on the menu. That is... More

I stayed in Dallas during the Christmas to New Years Week. I wanted to be close to Highland park Village. This hotel came up on the Map as being really Close. It is right across from SMU.

The stay started off a little rough. I thought I had booked two rooms but apparently modified my original reservation instead. Robyn was great and bailed me out. Andrew was stellar. House staff provided prompt service. Nice heated pool. I would certainly stay again if needing a place near SMU, which is right across the street.

I stayed at the Hotel Lumen one night years ago. I thought it was nice and the particular room had been spacious. At the tie I had a toddler and one on the way.

We stayed at the Lumen this past weekend (Friday - Sunday) and the service was excellent. Free wine & beer upon check in. I ordered room service Saturday morning and it was brought to me within 15 minutes and the food was exceptional, not like standard room service. I loved the modern feel of the hotel and our room.
