We were excited to stay at Hotel Lumen because we are big fans of Kimpton hotels. Overall we decided to stay here because the property is so close to the event we were attending. I will start off by saying that nothing here was wrong or terrible...it just lacked the 'extra' something that most Kimpton hotels offer. 1) Arrival: we...

I've been staying at the Lumen off and on for the past year and a half. The staff ALWAYS goes out of their way to make me feel at home even while on the road. It has been an absolute pleasure to stay there.

Totally loved the Lumen. The staff at the front desk were so friendly and helpful from the minute we checked in to the time we checked out. The lady on front desk (Jazzelyn?) even went out of her way to help us try to get tickets to tour AT&T stadium, even letting me use her own mobile phone to call....

This is a lovely small hotel centrally located near some of the best Dallas neighborhoods. Smartly decorated with some nice design elements. The restaurant has the BEST food...that is the most impressive part of the hotel. Please be advised that the hotel, like most Kimpton properties, is a remodeled old hotel. We were disappointed when we checked in and they...

Dear designtravel2014, Thanks for the great comments and I agree, Justin is a superstar! Glad he was able to make this a great experience. Sorry about the pool experience...we are still working through the new structure and timing of when we can open it. Next time, I'll be sure to provide a complimentary night of parking. Best, Mike

We stayed a few times at this modern hotel and we always appreciated its traditional Kimpton touch i.e. the boutique hotel experience. The rooms are very quiet and the bed comfortable. A perfect location if you stay in Highland Park.

What an amazing experience! We did not want to leave. The staff were friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in their guests. Juanita went out of her way to graciously avert a minor crisis for our daughter who was auditioning at SMU. The room was as nice and comfortable as any we have stayed in.

Great room: silent, comfortable beds, spacious, good-sized bathroom with everything you need, nice modern decor. Service: all the staff without exception are wonderful.

We ended up in the enormously large ADA room, which was a pleasant surprise....huge doorways, easy access shower, a small but separate kitchenette, a living room area, etc. Overall, it was a beautiful, modern room, but it was so impractical! I know that this is a premiere hotel in the area, but I may be hard pressed to return there...

Dear 1moreinthebucket, I appreciate all of your comments. I love the detail. We will certainly follow up regarding hooks in the bathrooms...that should be a very easy fix. That, as well as the dishes / silverware / glasses in the suites. They were recently added and should be good to go now. Sorry about the bathroom layout...we can look into...
