Kimpton does a very good job, and they've done so here. Very comfortable rooms and personable service. Cool decor and ambience.
But, on the negative side, the rooms are small, and the walls are thin, exposing sounds from the hallway and other rooms. They've done nice work, transforming the awful old Park Cities Inn, but they should've been more generous in reconstructing the rooms.
If you want to be near SMU, this is a desirable pick.
