I stayed here for the Forty Niner v Cowboy football playoff game. The hotel is across the street from SMU and would be a great place to stay if you made SMU activities or a student. The hotel is small but comfortable, the stay was very helpful and the room was clean and efficient. There was a restaurant but we didn't eat there. Overall a good value

The hotel has a cute lobby and overall appearance. The staff was very friendly, however our overall experience was below average. We checked in for 1 night late (around midnight). When we got to our room we discovered that the toilet was not working which was very annoying, however, they changed our room 15 mins later. Next morning we discovered that the room did not have a coffee machine in the room (coffee was available at the restaurant in the lobby for a charge), no iron or ironing board (we had to ask for it to be brought to the room, which it was within 10 minutes) and no moisturizer. Overall, expected a little better.

If you’re looking to spend the night somewhere close to Highland Park and planning on having a nice dinner in the village and also doing a carriage ride, the Lumen is extremely close to all of those activities in places. The staff was extremely helpful and very courteous.

Great place very nice staff. Valet service is fantastic and the rooftop access was the highlight of my trip. Overall it was most definitely a much needed getaway from the North Pole. Food and store access was all in walking distance

Overall great experience staying at the Lumen; friendly staff. Well kept grounds right across the street from SMU. Easy walk to near by restaurants and bars. Friendly restaurant staff. The front desk allowed us to hold our bags in the office until our flight
