A chic boutique hotel featuring 1960s-inspired décor across the street from Southern Methodist University.
After a massive facelift, what used to be a mid-century motel became Kimpton's The Lumen, a chic and sophisticated escape in the heart of Dallas’s University Park neighborhood and steps from SMU. Here, guests are invited to enjoy hosted evening wine hours, a rooftop terrace and the Front Room, a Park Cities Diner. Guest rooms feature amenities such as wireless high-speed Internet access (complimentary to Kimpton's Karma Rewards members), evening turndown service, bathrooms stocked with C.O. Bigelow bath amenities, 37-inch LCD flat-screen TVs, spacious desks with ergonomic chairs, complimentary morning coffee and tea service and honor bars. Newspapers are free in the lobby, and pet-friendly accommodations are offered for guests who register furry travelers in advance. Suites provide the added bonus of up to 869 square feet of space, plus separate living, dining and kitchen areas, floor-to-ceiling windows and oversized soaking tubs. Visitors can access the fitness center and outdoor heated pool, which features an adjacent lounge area and poolside food and beverage services. This hotel provides over 1,500 square feet of meeting space spread across three rooms (for up to 100 guests). An experienced event staff can consult regarding event needs and offer multimedia and audiovisual support; a 24-hour business center has laptop stations and a printer, projectors, screens, LCD flat-panel monitors, VCR/DVD players, whiteboards and flip charts.
