We reserved a room at Hotel Gault, having found it on the Lonely Planet guide sight. It sounded from the description like it would be exactly what we were looking for, a smaller boutique hotel with beautiful architectural spaces, good service and an amazing location in the heart of Vieux Montreal, walking distance to everything. It did not disappoint. The... More

Hotel Gault is a beautiful and very tasteful mixture of old and new architecture and design. Our room was huge, superbly comfortable and well appointed. The staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is close to Central railway, the port, the subway, restaurants and all downtown attractions. I couldn't recommend Hotel Gault highly enough.

Found this hotel last minute and it was great Boutique style spot on a nice quite street in the heart of the city. Great rooms with unique layouts and super friendly staff. Great cafes and food options within a 2 minute walk. Highly recommended. Will return.

It is a gorgeous hotel with a lovely and attentive staff. The entire aesthetic is inspiring. I think they renovated in 2003 but it felt like the renovation was yesterday. Because our rooms were so lovely, it was hard to wrestle ourselves away to explore Montreal (which is also gorgeous). One of the best hotel experiences I have ever had.

I did a lot of research before booking this hotel. It was consistently listed as the number 2 or 3 in Montreal, After looking at many options, I chose the Gault!

We enjoyed our two night stay at Hotel Gault. Our room was spacious, modern and clean. The turn down service was very nice...little extras like music playing and slippers left at the side of the bed were appreciated. We enjoyed the luxurious linens although we thought a nice touch might be to provide a spare towel or two. The breakfast... More

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gault is a boutique hotel housed in an historic building built in 1871. The hotel lies in the heart of Old Montreal, just steps away from the downtown and the convention centre. In contrast to the exterior of this landmark building, inside, The Gault features a minimalist style. Together, they create an incomparable communion of old-world comfort and luxurious contemporary design. Furnished with classic 20th-century pieces, The Gault experience is enhanced by huge French windows that flood each of the 30 suites with natural light and create a radiant atmosphere. All the rooms are open-plan and equipped with Mondrian custom oak cabinetry, an LED flat-screen television, and Blu-ray technology. Some suites feature 3D televisions. All guests enjoy HDTV, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access, and free local calls. iPads are available on request. ... more   less
