This is the place to stay in Old Montréal. Trust me, there are many other “boutique” hotels in my most favourite region of Montréal, but, such made-to-look-like designer knock-off hotels just don’t come close to the historical, architectural, and minimal rare gem that is Hotel Gault.
Hotel Gault has set the highest design standard in Montréal.
The affordable nightly room rate is of great value, considering this masterfully designed small hotel with wonderfully minimalist guest rooms is appointed with very expensive European designer furnishings, such as Artemide bedside lamps, Ingo Maurer light fixtures, and so on. Attention to details matter most at Hotel Gault, especially, when one notices a lot of the in room furnishings were custom made for this propertly.
Really, one must love modern design and architecture to get the most out of a stay at Hotel Gault, as the reconstruction of this historic space into something that is truly modern is nothing short of magical: when it comes to a small hotel, one cannot find a better example of architectural reconstruction in Canada, if not, North America, than Hotel Gault. (From a plaque outside the front entrance, I read about the building being the first Y.M.C.A. on the continent…)
Lastly, from a hospitality angle, Hotel Gault has an extremely helpful concierge and service team, and they always make sure our stay in Montréal is the best possible (they know the restaurant scene there inside and out, and will easily get you into the best restaurants possible, sometimes, with little or no notice).
I’ll definitely be back!
