We checked in on the late side and had an early breakfast meeting, so I appreciated the friendly, energetic advice from the woman working at the front desk. We ended up eating at the restaurant inside the hotel, which was pretty great and modern, especially for a hotel restaurant open late at night. My room was very large, clean and... More

Our corporate group stayed at the Lumen for area meetings in Dallas and loved this property. I'm a Kimpton fan, but Lumen was particularly out front with their excellent and friendly on site staff (Stephanie at check in was extremely friendly and welcoming). The property itself is modern and upscale in its design and layout; the rooms were spacious and... More

This boutique hotel across from SMU is consistently a nice, easily accessible place to stay in the heart of the Park Cities. It's across the street from SMU and a short drive to Highland Park Village. The staff is friendly and efficient. The showers are spacious, the linens are nice, and the bathroom is well stocked. There's also a nice... More

This hotel is perfect for business travelers, SMU visitors or just simply visiting the metroplex. It's not over top nice, but you'll be very happy you chose this over the much more expensive options downtown if you are by yourself, with a rental car and don't really need a concierge. I will be back.

I will start by saying, I booked through a discount site and maybe that was my bad. I'm pretty sure I got the absolute worst room in the hotel, buried way in the back. My issues? Thin walls. At 1am I was listening to the entire conversation of what I presume were college students coming in from a night out... More

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

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
