Frankly, I love Kimpton Hotels and with one exception I have never had a bad experience. the Hotel Lumen was no exception. The hotel is small, chic and friendly. When I arrived I was upgraded to a Spectra Suite, which was larger than most NYC apartments. Two televisions, lots of space, a nifty walk-in shower with jets and a huge bathroom were just highlights. Even though it had a great view of SMU, the room was quiet and the bed comfy.
Kimpton provides coffee in the lobby and a wine reception in the afternoon, both nice touches. However if you are like me and can't get dressed before the first cup, they will send a coffeemaker and coffee to the room. The staff is wonderful and I have to give special mention to Lauren at the front a desk (Kimpton has a gem in her) and the mgr, Mr. Kennedy who offered to try to change me to a room with a balcony when I said I would like one. (I stayed where I was),
The location is convenient and attractive, and nice to walk around. There are lots of places to eat all prices within walking distance. I had great fried oysters at Half Shell.
If you are a fan of small boutique hotels, do yourself a favor and stay here.
