More delays!

A travel blog entry by jennytravels


Spent a few hours in a town called Grapevine near the Dallas international airport in Texas during our 8 hour layover. We're waiting to board our plane to Frankfurt now which has been delayed yet again (flight from Rio was previously delayed too). Don't worry, not a technical issue. Something about the service staff not being ready. Fuhh! ...

You should attempt seeking furnishings parts which are offered by a trustworthy shop. This is because famous shops often supply extended warranties on their household furniture. If something goes completely wrong in just a specific time frame, they will likely substitute the items. More compact retailers usually are not typically able to pay for these guarantees.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lumen - A Kimpton Hotel Dallas

    J'adore cet hôtel


    J'adore l'hôtel Lumen. En termes de prix et de situation géographique, c'est le meilleur hôtel ! C'est vrai que certaines chambres sont petites, mais elles ont des douches extras. Je suis descendu dans les grandes chambres comme dans les petites et c'est vrai que les grandes sont meilleures, mais je n'ai vu aucun signe d'usure ni dans les unes ni dans les autres. Elles sont normales... Je l'aime beaucoup et son prix et son emplacement sont inégalables !

    I love this place


    I love the Hotel Lumen. For the price and the location it can't be beat! Yes, som e of the rooms are small, but that shower can't be beat. I have stayed in large rooms and small rooms and yes, the big rooms are better, but I don't see signs of wear and tear?

    Normal usage...

    I like it a lot and for the price and the location it can't be beat!

    Definitely not a luxury boutique hotel


    I would not stay at this hotel again. I was in Dallas on business and looking for a hotel between the Galleria area and downtown. The location is good. But, the walls are paper thin. I could hear everything in the rooms next door to me- phone conversations, bathroom, etc.. You can hear every door shut even down the hall. The room itself was not inviting or warm. The walls are bare and an out of date white color. The rooms are very small- not even enough room to pull out your chair from the desk and sit comfortably. The hotel is fairly new and already has signs of serious wear and tear. There is no real restaurant. The restaurant they have is open for dinner only. They serve a continental breakfast in the small lobby in the morning (for a price). Defintiely not the luxury boutique hotel they claim to be. I was extremely disappointed.

    Great find around SMU


    I was in the Dallas area on business and decided to stay near SMU because I like the Highland/University Park area of the city. I was impressed with the hotel website, and found a really cheap rate on an obscure website unrelated to the hotel, so it worked out pretty nicely.

    Great Location


    I booked the Hotel Lumen because of its great location in the Park Cities area and because of its small, "boutique hotel" size. Overall, I have no major complaints about my stay. It is certainly very different from any hotel I have stayed at previously.

    Wasn't impressed.....


    We went to the Hotel Lumen for business purposes and we were not all that impressed. Iron and ironing board are not in your room, as you must request them from the front desk. I received mine after my second night there and after I requested it twice. As another review stated, there is no full length mirror. I showered at night and in the morning and the water was slightly warm at best. However, my coworkers said that their temperature was fine so there might be an issue in just one part of the building. This prevented me from enjoying the nice jets in the shower which I know I would have enjoyed. They put a plum out at night with a bottle of Ozarka which is a nice, unique touch. I also had a problem with service as I had to stand there and wait a couple of minutes for an employee to finish telling a joke to another employee before I could check out. They also stay seated while helping you which I felt uncomfortable with as you are not on their level while speaking to them. To me this gives an attitude of laziness. Big note before you go. The shower and the bedroom are basically in the same room. There is no way to build privacy between these two rooms so I suggest you not share with someone that you wouldn't want to have see you without your clothes on.

    Amazing place for the price!!!


    My husband and I chose this hotel for a vacation to Dallas. We wanted a pet-friendly, NON-highrise hotel in an upscale area that was pleasant to walk in. This is directly across the street from SMU and adjacent to beautiful residential neighborhoods full of $700K+ homes. We weren't sure what to expect as they had JUST opened shortly before our arrival and the price we paid per night was $134.

    Different but Nice


    Be ready for an experience out of the ordinary. This European inspired hotel is nice but I can't understand what they are trying to be. The place is not warm or inviting but if you like minimal dark places stay here. The room configuration is challenging but the bed and linens are nice and the shower is the best reason to stay. The wall mounted flat screen television was nice too. But it is too dark in this place. The vanity lights and the bedside reading lights are slightly brighter than a full moon and the outside window leaves the impression of being in an institution (prison, asylum) so leave the shade down. The front desk staff remains seated during check-in and is less than enthusiastic. The hotel resturant is good but not great. Prices were reasonable but the drinks from the bar were awful. Order beer or wine. I would stay here again because of the location but it isn't a romantic getaway spot.

    Diamond in the rough


    I stayed with my wife, two kids and a buddy plus his family. We stayed in a block of 3 rooms that all connected with one door. It made it great because we never had to close all the doors except the master door. The rooms were sold as individual rooms but they found away to make the stay that much better. The bathrooms were large and the showers were great (my wife took a 45 minute shower with the body jets). My wife and I both used the mirror to get ready and yes I did shave with NO problem. The beds are great and the down pillows almost came home with my wife. The kids loved the free move selection and the big plasma TVs. 2 out of the 3 rooms had balconies and we had a great continental breakfast with the sliding glass door sled all the way open. We could walk to fast food restaurants but why when you can get some of the best food in Dallas at Social Restaurant on the first floor. We were so impressed that the Chef actually came out to see how our meal was. WOW!!

    No Value


    The modern design is nice but is left lacking for overall quality. No towel bar (throw it on the floor?). No conditioner, lotion, mouthwash. Only shampoo and body wash. Towels are fairly cheap, the same quality as Motel 6. No full length mirror to check your appearance. Small vanity mirror so small and badly lit you cannot apply makeup or really tell how your hair looks. A man would be afriad to shave in such conditions for fear of slitting his own throut. I requested a makeup mirror with light and several hours later they dropped off a 5 inch dollar store style travel mirror with no light. The water closet was so small you had to climb over the toilet to get behind the door to shut it. If I weighed more than 115 pounds I would be forced to leave the door open. No minibar, refrigerator, or ice machine. Unworking elevator. Forced fee for valet when unnecessary. Since we had to walk down the stairs because of the elevator, we had to leave the building and reenter through the parking lot. Then walk past our car, walk through the lobby, wait for the valet to pretend to be fetching our car for ten minutes when it was 15 feet away around the corner. No hot water, after leaving it run for over twenty minutes the shower was barely lukewarm. We checked out early and went to the Magnolia for everything we would like, a room nearly double in space, and more for $50 a night less.
