I have just returned from a business trip in Montreal where I spent six nights at the hotel Gault.
My colleague and I were immediately greeted by the amazing Pauline, the hotel's guest relations representative, who spared no time offering us extremely helpful information on the sights and restaurants of this wonderful and friendly city. She was simply brilliant.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, very modern in style, with great black and white framed photographs on the walls, and very welcoming. The rooms are large, simple and slightly industrial in style (the modern industrial look seems to be a bit of a theme in Montreal), and spotlessly clean. The location is very central, in the beautiful old part of town, so we managed to walk almost everywhere. Some amazing restaurants are just nearby.
If I have to be picky I only have a couple of small criticisms: the shower knob was broken and with no sign of being repaired soon and breakfast was expensive, small and served almost cold. I quickly forgot about the shower knob (the shower still worked, it was just a little bit more awkward to turn it on) and we had breakfast elsewhere for the rest of our stay so all in all not that big a deal.
The rest of our party was staying at another hotel around the corner and we couldn’t help feeling smug about our better choice. I would definitely go back to the hotel Gault if I have the chance to visit Montreal again.
