Planned originally as a residential hotel, the Dan Boutique has all the class and comfort that are the hallmarks of this hotel chain (think cushiony beds, decor in serene tans and taupes, well-trained staff, a generous breakfast buffet) but because of its original architecture, rooms come in a wide variety of sizes and arrangements, which can make it a good choice for families and large groups. The better rooms (some of which have balconies) are on floors five to eight; these include 14 roomy suites. The worst are the ground-floor rooms; they get a “lovely” view of the parking lot. Nearby bus stops take you all over the city. Look for off-season specials.
