America's top college hotels: Hotel Lumen

Hotel Lumen, Southern Methodist University, Dallas

A once-ugly midcentury motel block in the manicured district of University Park was redeemed and transformed by Kimpton into a Modernist boutique hotel with lights of various colors, hence the name. Expect the hotel group’s usual touches such as complimentary wine tastings and no fees for pets. The Lumen is across the street from SMU and a few minutes’ drive to downtown Dallas’s Historic District—for a survey course of sorts in local history. hotellumen.com
