Hôtel Gault Review

A heritage boutique hotel with serious design chops, the Gault attracts movie stars—hello, Charlotte Rampling!—and style mavens, none of whom would ever guess it used to be a cotton factory in the 1800s. The paparazzi moments begin in the lobby: everyone wants to be photographed there perched on the yellow sectional couch by Francesco Binfaré. Above in the loft-style rooms, the design veers in different directions: some rooms have tile-and-concrete floors brightened by boldly patterned geometric rugs; others have sleek, blond-wood furnishings and contrasting rough-brick walls. All have CD and DVD players plus plasma televisions. Bathrooms have freestanding modern tubs and heated tile floors. In summer, ask for a room on the fifth floor, where there are private terraces. Original cast iron pillars highlight the building's past as a warehouse.

    Gem of a little hotel

    We just returned from a 5 night stay at Hotel Gault, and I would highly recommend you consider Hotel Gault when visiting Montreal. It's located in the old section of town next to downtown, so it's central for walking with easy access to the Metro at Queen Victoria Stations. The rooms are large, I had the Extential, and it was about 400 sf with loft like open design. The breakfast is great, as are the other facilities, especially for a 30 room hotel. The ambiance and serene atmosphere provice a nice relaxing escape.

    Hip AND Homey

    The spacious rooms, delicious full breakfast, complete with table service, and helpful staff make this hotel a gem. I didn't think it off the beaten path, either: less than 5 minutes in either direction will get you to the heart of downtown or Old Montreal.
