Different but Nice A review of Hotel Lumen - A Kimpton Hotel
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.
