Came to Montreal to celebrate my partner’s birthday and a long weekend get away and decided with this boutique hotel after reviewing many positive reviews and it didn’t disappoint!! Nikolas, Britney and many staff (sorry couldn’t remember all the names) were very attentive to my needs before and during our stay. I told them it was for my partner’s birthday and they wrote a card and provided petit desserts upon checking in the hotel room and it was a very nice touch and delighted surprise - thanks so much! They also helped us made reservation to a restaurant (Garde Manger) on a particular day (celebration dinner) that I could not have otherwise able to secure if just book via open table. We booked the terrace suite deluxe and it was very spacious. There’s nespresso machine that I really appreciate so we could make some coffee and enjoy on the terrace in the morning before going out to venture the city. The only thing I really wish for this hotel is a colder A/C and if there’s anything the management could do to improve this or allow the staff to decrease the standard 23 or 25 degree Celsius to like 20 at least. There is nothing more disappointed than coming back from the heat outside to your room and it’s not cool enough or cold. We had to rely to cold showers to help us cool down from the strong sun, hot and humid summer. They provided a fan which is better than nothing. I never had a stay in a hotel that needs fan to help me cool off. This might be the only complain and hesitation/reservation I have if you return to this hotel next time. Otherwise really love the hotel, the terrace deluxe suite, service and location.

I splurged on this boutique hotel as a treat for my husband and I who never get to travel without our kids (they were in summer camp). Located in beautiful Old Montreal, our stay was very special. The hotel is funky, but also quiet. Our room, a Loft Deluxe, felt unique, spacious, and comfortable. When we needed something, the staff was very friendly, kind, and helpful. One small issue was that twice when we came back from a day out in the city, our key cards suddenly didn't work. Both times the issue was resolved at the front desk in a matter of seconds. We marveled at the fact that of the three front desk staff that helped us with this, not one said "I'm sorry about that." This is not a complaint on my part because I have decided that it has to be a cultural thing that American customer service situations always include an apology for that kind of inconvenience. Am I wrong Canadians? The staff really couldn't have been nicer so I'm just observing it here because it was funny to us.

The hotel is ideally situated for the main attractions of old Montreal and is about a 50 min walk to the Mont Royal lookout. We had a large, quiet and comfortable suite. There are very limited food and drink options (basically, just a few choices for breakfast) but there are numerous good cafes and restaurants within a short walk.

My husband and I visited the hotel for a much needed relaxing getaway with high expectations, which were thankfully all exceeded! We had a junior suite from Wednesday to Sunday. The room was so beautiful and spacious, it was hard to want to leave! After walking around the city all day it was a dream to return to the well done turn down service (soft lighting and music) and the big soaker tub. The bed was very comfortable and it was one of the quietest hotel stays we’ve ever stayed at. The staff was always genuinely friendly and gracious. The location with the beautiful corner door was so convenient for walking at night in old Montreal and getting dinner and breakfast with lots of options near by. A favourite was grabbing breakfast scones at Olive and Gourmondo and eating them at the old port or one of a few parks with benches near by. I can’t imagine wanting to stay anywhere else, every need was exceeded! Thank you so much Hotel Gault for the wonderful trip!

This was such a gem! We stayed with our daughters and our dog in a suite and adjoining loft and it was so spacious, clean, and elegant! Wonderful beds, soaking tub, and amenities for our dog, including a bed and bowls. The location could not be better. There are many wonderful shops, cafes, and restaurants nearby (Olive & Gourmando baked goods and coffee and St-Paul St right around the other). The staff were very friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely be back!

I wanted to book a reservation for a corner suite but accidently booked a regular suite online. I called to make the switch to the corner suite which was confirmed over the phone as no problem. Upon arrival (I drive a pickup truck and was anticipating valet parking) we were told they no longer have Valet parking and we would have to park two blocks away in an underground lot. We went there and the underground parking could not accommodate the height of my truck. We returned to the hotel and were told of some other lots to "try". We ended up parking three blocks away at a cost of $25/day. So we then walk to the hotel and check in and when we got our room it was not the corner suite we had requested but at this point we just wanted to explore the city on a beautiful spring day and said to heck with it. The staff were very friendly and professional and the bed was very comfortable but the location was less than ideal especially walking back at night as the streets were dark and many drunken nightclub patrons stumbling around.

We had booked a deluxe suite for one nights stay but after checkin went to our room to find a dirty room with bed not made -- had not been serviced since prior guest checked out. They did not have anyone that could clean the room, so they gave us the only other room available -- a basic loft that had a rate more than $200 less than the deluxe suite. Would not refund the difference claiming that it was against policy since it was booked through getaroom.com. Getaroom.com also claimed that they are just a reseller and this would be the hotel's responsibility.

We stayed in the loft suite with Terrace for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and it did not disappoint. Spacious and a beautiful terrace. The terrace would have been more enjoyable with an awning or umbrella as we could not enjoy breakfast or lunch in the hot August sun. In the evening the terrace was perfect to have dinner on although more privacy from the other 3 terraces would have been nice. ie. bushes or topiaries. Because the loft suite was sold out we spent the following 3 nights in a corner suite on the 2nd floor. It was well appointed. There were some challenges with a power outage due to work being done by the city. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you Hotel Gault staff for being professional and gracious.
