I'm a long time Kimpton Hotel fan and have stayed in quite a few of their properties around the country. Years ago I had stayed at the Lumen and was very disappointed and as a result when I found myself in Dallas I would always choose to stay at the Palomar and never really gave the Lumen another thought. UNTIL NOW...this hotel has undergone an amazing transformation! It is just FABULOUS. The hotel has that small boutique feel but has everything you need to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The central courtyard of the hotel has a lovely pool with cabanas and plenty of umbrellas for those who seek to escape for the strong Texas sun.
The room was decorated in a classic funky Kimpton style. It was very comfortable. The bathroom was well sized and sleek and clean in style. Some of the rooms have fantastic balconies that overlook SMU or the pool area.
The hotel is situated right across the street from SMU's campus. You can walk to many shops, restaurants and jogging/biking trails from the hotel.
The hotel staff members were all very friendly and accommodating and seemed genuinely glad to assist. I have to say: I think the Lumen is my new "Go To" hotel when visiting Dallas.
