The Lumen is a nice Kimpton property. My room was not ready upon arrival so I grabbed a quick bite to eat in The Front Room. My expectations were exceeded. The manager Robert was also my server, I had the Croque Madame (picture below!) and an ice tea. It was really ('really' in italics) good! The rooms are unique and... More

The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and informative. The hotel has been updated and is very nice. Great pool for kids. The rooms are nice size and quiet. It is right across the street from SMU campus and they offer free rides in a 5 mile radius.

Stayed at the Lumen this past weekend with my husband and 3 kids. We wanted to be close to SMU, and this hotel was perfect. Booked a king suite which had plenty of room for our family. It was like a 1 BR condo...a living room with pullout sofa and kitchenette and a separate BR with king bed and attached... More

The room itself was a good size and very comfortable to stay in. I had one of the rooms with the large window facing the street / University. It was a bit of pain getting in and out of the hotel due to tons of construction that really seemed to take away from the appeal of the hotel but temporary... More

I called ahead and reserved a large table to accommodate my out of town guests and family who were coming in to celebrate my son's Highland Park High School graduation ceremonies at SMU. However when we arrived there was no air conditioning and no wait staff! To stay cooler we had to stand wherever we could and we had to... More

We stayed over the 4th of July weekend. Checked in for 1 night, were offered a room upgrade without asking for one, mentioned the Kimpton Karma Rewards phrase for the summer, and received free valet parking. The concierge called after we had been in our room for awhile, said they were putting together holiday packages for people, would it be... More

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
