With a terrific location on a quiet street near the Grand Place, the 150-room Dominican takes its design cues from the fifteenth-century abbey that originally occupied the site. The award-winning Dutch firm FG stijl used jewel-tone colors to evoke medieval stained glass, a motif repeated in the carpeting of the guest rooms. Ecclesiastical references aside, this is a new property that was built behind the nineteenth-century stone facade of a building which was once the home of the French neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David. Soaring ceilings distinguish the handsome bar, restaurant, and lobby that surround the central atrium. Though standard rooms are compact, they're well designed and flush with useful amenities, such as a Nespresso machine, free Internet access, and a plasma-screen television on an adjustable arm that enables viewing from anywhere in the room. Down pillows and a two-inch-thick mattress pad ensure sweet dreams, and striking bathrooms have black granite sinks and spacious walk-in showers with ceiling-mounted showerheads.

When to go: The weather's best in June and September.
Which room to book: Fifth-floor standard doubles like No. 530 are quietest.
