    What is boutique-y about this hotel? It has 539 rooms and seems to be a modern concrete box with windows.

    Probably because it used to be a train station? It's similar to that of Kimpton's approach by making older buildings into hotels... They might renovate the property too so that's always a possibility..

    Is Doubletree really a "boutique" flag?

    This hotel is nice - I've stayed there when it was a Hyatt. The train station remnants contribute to a unique lobby feel, and the "spy arch" in the doorway is a fun thing for kids to play with (the acoustics transmit sound from one side of the arch to the other).
