Accolades to the staff of Hotel Gault! They went the extra mile to meet our needs. They got reservations at top restos that were difficult to book ( thank you, Nadia)and literally ran after a cab for us on a stormy snowy day, to name the memorable moments. But every day we were greeted with a warm welcoming smile by...

Wow! Hotel Gault was absolutely wonderful. The room was beautiful and everything was of excellent quality-- from the toiletries to the linens. The service was excellent as well; the hotel staff gave us great recommendations for places to eat. What a perfect stay for a long weekend.

I got lost trying to find this place; my fault. The entrance is up a flight of stairs which in the winter can be very demanding (ice and snow, and the entrance door is real hard to open) and there is no doorman. Things improve dramatically once inside. Three stars to get in and five once inside. Next time there,...

The building's 19th century Paris inspired architecture is jaw-dropping. The interior design is just as stunning but in a different way: very modern and refined, with timeless pieces of furniture and beautiful colours. The suites are simply gorgeous (beds feel like you're floating on a cloud), large and spacious; the bathrooms look a-mazing and the service is excellent. Loved our...

Recently I had to travel to Montreal for work. Because of the way the meetings were booked, I was too late to stay in the hotel arranged by our conference group. Turns out that was lucky because I found the Gault. I travel a lot, and over the past few years I've tried to make it a priority to stay...

For business or for pleasure, I would come back to Hotel Gault in a heartbeat. It's perfectly situated in Vieux-Montreal, within walking distance of the basilica, horse carriage rides, and wonderful restaurants (close enough even for our five year old to walk). The room itself is beautiful, contemporary and extremely comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast/dinner area in the lobby,...

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre 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 centre, 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 theatre.

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
