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.

Worst hotel ever. The day Kimpton Hotels was the day The Lumen became a two star hotel. If you are visiting for SMU stay at The Highland. Great place and even have cookies and milk at night for all their guests.
