Hotel Description

Say what you will about the grand Texas opulence of old — efforts are underway to inaugurate a leaner, cleaner, design-savvy wave of boutiques with the charisma and charm to hold their own against the coastal heavyweights. Yes, even in Dallas, rarely the birthplace of trendy novelty; even across the street from Southern Methodist University, change is a-comin’. Kimpton saw an opportunity and took it with Hotel Lumen, previously a mid-century motel, with all the modernist flavor that entails.

They did well by that heritage, preserving elements of the original layout in the process of refreshing the space; a nod to relatives on a campus visit, maybe, but also a shrewd move in today’s design landscape. A polished lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows gives way to the complete Kimpton roster of public spaces — Front Room Tavern, notably, is the site of the daily wine hour, and a dependable purveyor of craft cocktails and new-American comfort classics. Upstairs, Texas-sized rooms fulfill needs both classic (Frette pillow-top bedding, sun-drenched views) and contemporary (flatscreens, iHome docking stations) in a luxe grayscale ambience, with a yoga mat and Atelier Bloem bath amenities in every room.

This being Texas, the outdoor pool is an absolute must, in season; private cabanas with poolside service make it an all-day affair, if you like. A 24-hour fitness center boasts a full roster of state-of-the-art machines, while free bikes at reception make it rather easy to explore Park Cities — towncars are also available for journeys of up to three miles. However you choose to go, it’s a bustling, university-driven neighborhood with plenty of quality dining and retail options.
