Dear bacrowe, Thanks for your questions. We have valet parking for $22 per night. We love it when guests bring their pets so there is no fee. Let us know if you bring your pet...they do get the VIP treatment. Best, Mike GM - Hotel Lumen

"Our room was along Hillcrest and very bright at night from the lights in the trees."
"Corner suite was huge and beautiful, plenty of light from the windows, excellent view."
"Don't pay for the suites! Not worth it. Ask for a room with a view of the pool and floor to celeling windows."
"Get a room with a window."
"I think any of the rooms would be nice. It's a fairly quiet neighborhood."
US$184 - US$447 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
