An unexpected delight in the Park Cities area, right next to the SMU campus, this terrifically stylish, discreet boutique hotel opened in the spring of 2006. It oozes contemporary panache and confidence, with luxurious mid-century-modern-inspired rooms and a dark, swanky bar and restaurant, Social, that has become a destination among those in the know. Though it clearly targets a hip crowd of upscale business, media, and arts patrons, it's also a bargain, and it's even pet-friendly (pet packages are available, with complimentary "pawdicures"). Accommodations, done in rich chocolates and creams, feature angular desks, plasma TVs, plush linens, and cool tiled bathrooms. The most enticing rooms, the Spectra studios, are very spacious and have large picture windows with LED lighting facing Hillcrest Avenue and SMU. Though the Lumen's sister hotel, the excellent and similarly hip Palomar , has captured most of the media buzz, this small hotel is the one for anyone looking for a quiet stay in chic surroundings.
