We stayed at Hotel Gault in Old Montreal this weekend and it was just as advertised. An adult-style property with wonderful design chops and gorgeous rooms. This is not your average, fusty, high-end hotel with brocade and dark wood; there are personal touches everywhere, such as in the 1939 Life Magazines mixed in with other reading materials in the fireplace room; brushed concrete floors in the rooms with heating coils under the sink and in the bathroom waiting to surprise your bare feet; up-to-date electronics and an iPhone recharging speaker set on the classy, low table. You're also in Old Montreal, so there's the fascinating contradiction between the building (at least 150 years old) and the interior, which still sports, here and there, in the lobby and in the rooms, the old sculpted columns that support the heavy ceilings and walls.
My only caveat is that although the breakfast and the service were both magnificent, you may not want to pay $60 for two coffees and two plates of eggs. Try Le Gros Jambon on Notre Dame or The Mon Cafe for some good, less expensive grub. Le Gros Jambon, owned by the same folks who own nearby seafood palace, L'Orignal, is a genuine find.
