Hotel Lumen: Our newly renovated boutique hotel in Dallas near SMU

Hotel Lumen is Just Steps from SMU

Directly across the street from Southern Methodist University (SMU), Hotel Lumen provides the ideal base for exploring all that this celebrated, top-ranking institution has to offer - from SMU's lauded academic programs to exciting sports events to a stunning art collection at the Meadows Museum and prize-winning arts performances.

Acclaimed undergraduate, graduate and professional programs draw large numbers of visitors to SMU throughout the year. Add to this the dynamic, multicultural environment of the campus and a wide array of fascinating public events and it's not surprising that the campus is one of Dallas' most popular destinations. Hotel Lumen, a Kimpton Hotel, ideally situates you to:

  • Watch the Mustangs perform football magic.
  • Visit the internationally acclaimed Meadows Museum - its Spanish art collection is one of the best outside of Spain.
  • Explore the George W. Bush Presidential Library (First Lady Laura Bush is an alumna).
  • Take a walk through Dallas Hall, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Stay at our boutique hotel and you are steps from the school that The Economist magazine calls the top school in the nation for business networking. Hobnob with Dallas' movers and shakers. Wander the grounds walked by noted SMU alumni such as Nobel Prize-winning physicist James Cronin, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley, legendary Senator John Tower, actress Kathy Bates, film and television producer Aaron Spelling, golfer Payne Stewart, Heisman Trophy-winner Doak Walker, football player and commentator Don Meredith and countless others.

Whether you are a prospective SMU student, visiting relative, guest speaker or simply here to enjoy this lively element of Dallas, you will find that Hotel Lumen offers more than mere convenience. Indeed, we take pride in our superb personalized services, luxurious amenities and a vibrant retro cool ambiance.

Our knowledgeable and experienced hotel staff can assist with the details of your SMU visit, offering campus advice, contact information and help with obtaining performance and event tickets. Whatever your needs, we are ready and happy to offer assistance.
