I'm sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience with making your reservations and I apologize for my reservations agent not making these rates more clear for you. I assure you they weren't trying to take advantage of you in any way. We do send out confirmation emails detailing the rates for your entire stay to prevent any confusion, but I understand your frustrations in not having it detailed to you more clearly over the phone. If you'd like to talk about this in further detail please reach out to me at the hotel at: 214-219-2400 or through email at dbevan@thelumendallas.com. Regards,

Great staff! Quaint rooms - with my own pair of slippers and a great, big shower. Daily happy hour - wine and beer. Fabulous pool and cabanas. Car service available for exploring. Great food choices within walking distance.

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$171 - US$385 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
