Overview

A four-star Design Hotel near the iconic Grand Place and Le Monnaie in the beating heart of Brussels

The Lowdown

Situated within a five-minute stroll of the Grand Place, The Dominican offers style-seekers a welcome retreat from the bustle of the European Union’s capital city. This four-star boutique hotel stands on the site of a 15th-century abbey, just minutes from the famous Théâtre de la Monnaie. A member of Design Hotels™, it has famous dutch duo Bart Lens and FG stijl to thank for its architecturally stunning archways, while rooms ooze style and character in equal measure.
Outside, things are just as nice. Head to the 19th-century, glass-roofed St. Hubert Galleries to shop for labels, or pick a prime people-watching spot in a nearby café or bar. If you’ll be back in time for dinner, reserve a table at Grand Lounge, for a fine-dining experience overlooking the serene courtyard, while cocktails served beneath sky-high ceilings attract an in-the-know crowd to Lounge Bar. There’s a cardio gym and spa as well as a boxing room, to help you work off any overindulgence, and a Finnish sauna and steam room to rid your system of any remaining toxins.

Good but no Bonvoy benefits

We stayed here for three days, booked using points. It’s a nice property, centrally located. Quiet, designer hotel, small but nicely decorated rooms. Beautiful ground floor with a bar and restaurant.

The problem is you will basically get no Bonvoy benefits. Breakfast is not included for any level, Platinum or higher. Fine, it is listed as such in Bonvoy tables. But while Bonvoy benefits state you will be getting a 4pm checkout at Designer hotels, this won’t be true at this property. Front desk refused, claiming they are not Designer nor Marriott property. Even though when I asked about breakfast at checkin, I was told “We’re a Designer Hotel, so we don’t offer breakfast for Platinums.” Same front desk clerk. Bonvoy customer service couldn’t help me.

Summary: don’t expect any benefits. Or maybe it depends who’s at the front desk.

Perfect location, great sleep, welcoming staff

Warmly welcomed with an early morning checkin at this wonderfully located boutique hotel, a 10 minute walk from the central train station. The Grand Place and many other highlights of this lovely city are just steps away and cooks will go crazy for the huge “Home of Cooking” store right next door. We were in a small but well appointed room and had a very comfortable king bed. Room was interior-facing so a little dark but very quiet. The lobby and ground floor area is very attractive. Breakfast was very good and we didn’t even try the numerous hot options including “famous eggs Benedict “. We’ll have to return!
