Myself and my fiance stayed at Hotel Gault to celebrate our engagement. The room was spacious and had a Juliet balcony with a nice view of the city, as well as a lovely, large tub and a very comfortable bed. We lounged in the robes and had a luxurious time. Thanks Hotel Gault!

Hôtel is very contemporary, minimalistic in style. Room was a good size , with very comfortable bed & great size bathroom. We had difficulty turning on TV & even coffee maker, because no information was provided in the room due to Pandemic Precaution. Also no housekeeping provided or meals. There was access to coffee & tea by réservation & à breakfast box could have been ordered at a fee. Emma at the Reservations desk was absolutely wonderful & went out of her way to accommodate us or assist. Thé hôtel is in a good location & would roba my recommend to clients in the future.

Love this hotel in Old Montreal We’ve stayed here a number of times and usually get the apartment , which is spacious and wonderful. If you don’t want to eat inside restaurants during Covid , this apartment has a large dining table and simple kitchen that works perfectly to bring in food from one the great nearby restaurants (we like Holder) and have a comfortable meal. We bought a good bottle of wine at a nearby liquor store and had a good time eating in. The staff at the hotel were exceptional. They are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help. Especially Sofie and Josie. We came from the US with our little dog and could not travel with her food due to import regulations. The hotel staff (Sofie & Josie) located a shop that sold our dogs’ food, purchased it and sent someone to pick it up for us. Her food was waiting for her in our room when we arrived, along with a sweet setup of dog mat and 2 dog bowls. During our stay, the city did some repairs in Old Montreal and shut off the water for a full day. It got pretty uncomfortable as the A/C was not working for this reason. The hotel graciously relocated us to their sister hotel nearby and made the transition seamless. They even had a dog bowl waiting for us in our new room. We will definitely return to the Gault soon.

It is always a pleasure to stay in the Old Port and Hotel Gault is the best in the area. The staff is helpful and kind and the hotel is teeming with exceptional design details which truly elevate the overall experience. My stay was during a heatwave and the hotel was a nice refuge between bouts of work and playing tourist to escape the heat.

The Hotel Gault has impeccable, comfortable and soothing rooms, elegant common areas, and a first-rate location. But a property is just that, and it is the people at the Hotel Gault that make it so special. They are professional, attentive, and like so many Québecois, they are genuinely caring. My two night stay was flawless and when I return to Montreal…soon…I will stay at the Gault.
