Hotel Lumen was a fantastic surprise. From what used to be a run down motor hotel, a crisp boutique hotel has been born. From the moment we pulled up, and encountered the valet, to the pool side dining service every staff member went out of their way to make us feel like Hotel Lumen was our home away from home....

I stayed at the Lumen over St. Pattys day weekend because a lot of my friends live in Dallas. It was located in a quaint location, not too far from anything, but not directly in the city. They offer a cab that will take you within 3 miles of the hotel for free (tips appreciated). The free cab took us... More

First of all so sorry for my delay in responding to your posting. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I think we actually took the tent down a few days after you left. As much as I dont like to share it is ok if you go to the Palomar but you have to promise to come back... More

My friend and I were at the Lumen for three nights visiting another friend who lives in Dallas. We chose the Lumen because of the Kimpton name. What a great hotel! We loved being warmly greeted by the reception staff each time we entered the lobby, and were delighted with the smiles and attentiveness of the front entrance valets who... More

Almost don't want to let the cat out of the bag...but the Hotel Lumen is a gem. Mario, the manager is super as is the rest of the staff here. Great restaurant and bar as well. My only critique is the gym-could use an upgrade (treadmill and bike are so loud you can't hear the tv).

I think you just let the "cat out of the bag", but we thank you for that. So great to hear about your stay. I agree about the gym and we are working to get that updated. It may take some time but we hear you. I am glad that Mario treated you well and I will be giving him... More

My family stays here when they visit me from out of town. It is convenient to my location. We always feel very well taken care of. The restaurant downstairs is amazing. I love the rooms. Great place, great location. We will be staying at the Lumen more often.
