Reviewed 27 September 2017

Reception staff exceptionally friendly and willing to help. Lovely loft room with great sound insulation. Good location in old Montreal. Spotlessly clean, great fine dining recommendations from all at reception. Would stay again any time.

Bar lounge deserves to be frequented more as the setting and interior design are very pleasant.

Room Tip: The deluxe loft room with king size bed was south-facing and delightful. Good soundproofing, too.

The Gault staff treats us like family every time we visit. The car is taken care of safely. The room perfect and then of course this all takes place within one of the most romantics areas of the world, the Old Port of Montreal. Our room this time was one of the Penthouse suites, with a balcony overlooking the city sky line. The weekend couldn't have been better. We're also picky about our food and the Gault arranged for organic eggs inside an omelet which was perfectly done. The weekend set a smile to our faces, from start to finish. Nicely done Team Gault Hotel.

Room Tip: Don't forget your complimentary fresh ground gourmet coffee upon arrival, just one of the luxury...

First off, I am no fan of boutique hotels with noisy rooftop bars, stylish but nonsensical room designs, and incomprensible lighting and bathroom fixtures. This place is not of those. I had a junior suite (the "10" line) in the back of the building (you sleep with your head literally next to a brick wall), which had a huge adjoining room and the longest desk I have ever seen in a hotel room. It was dead quiet at night, and no noise from next-door neighbors. There was a lot of shelf space in the bathroom and easy-to-use faucet and shower controls. Yes, it's raw-looking brick and concrete decor, but not pretentiously so.

The location, in Old Town, is great, mainly because it is a bit west of where the action begins on Rue St. Paul. While that makes it a bit of a walk to restaurants and/or bars (am I at Place Jacques Cartier yet???), the location also makes it not as crowded with tourists and night revelers. Also, Rue McGill is a great through-street shortcut and easy walk to downtown action on Rue St. Catherine or St Denis near UQAM. And unlike the usual dead-eyed young staff at boutique hotels, the staff here was eager to help.

Now the quibbles/suggestions for the hotel:

-Room service, though 24-hour, had very limited choices, and quality was pretty poor. Maybe a sandwich that isn't a Reuben?
-No clock in the room!
-Not enough outlets near the desk area; only a spaghetti-line tangle of extension cords under the desk (tip to travelers: bring one of those small Belkin power strips)
-Ditch the free-standing I-pod docks with the now obsolete 32-pin connectors; waste of space, just get lightning-connector docks as part of a new clock radio for the room
-The metallic lobby needs a re-design. There are tables in it as you enter, and a steel door to a kitchen situated right by the passenger elevator, making you think, am In a restaurant or a lobby? Given the nice old exterior, just too modish.

Overall, though, because of the huge size of the room, the quiet, and the Old Town location, I'd recommend.

Room Tip: Get a junior suite; not as much light as the smaller lofts but dead quiet

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your most recent experience,

We are thrilled to hear that your stay at Hotel Gault was enjoyable. We are a boutique hotel and therefore do stand out from the chains, thank you for noticing! We do appreciate your comments about the room service as well as the little extra features in the room. We are an open concept restaurant/lobby hence the tables when you walk into the hotel giving it that feel. Rest assured that we will definitely pass along your message to the Director of Operations in hopes of improving. We hope that the next time we welcome you back, Hotel Gault will live up to your expectations!

We do look forward of having the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future!

Kind Regards,

We stayed at the Gault for four nights in a corner suite on the 4th floor (there are five floors). Room was spacious, huge as a matter of fact. Had a kitchenette in it that we didn't request. But the extra fridge came in handy. Bed was very comfortable with very nice linens. Suite was furnished in a modern, hipster vibe. Some may call sparse, but mire than comfortable.
Location, from our point of view was great. Close (easy walk) to the Old Port area and Notre Dame Basilica. Couple notable hotels in that area, but much noisier and touristy than around the Gault. The other heavy hotel area is uptown near McGill U and the art museum. This is the area with the posh designer stores and the ultra-lux hotels. Not our cup of tea, but there you go. From the Gault to the museum/McGill area is only a 20-25 minute walk.
Don't forget the rail system.
Bottom line on Gault: Great location for us.
Very comfortable and spacious suite. Quiet.
But the best part: The staff. Very friendly and oh so helpful in the hotel and great on restaurants and getting around.
Certainly cheaper than the Ritz-Carlton/Four seasons level. But still most people would consider it pricey.
As many know and first-timers will learn: Montreal ain't a cheap town.

First timer and very knowledgeable of the other boutique hotels in the Old Port. This was a sublime, top notch, wonderfully staffed and maintained jewel. Eric was superb. I will not stay anywhere else until someone tops this place.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are marvelous, all rooms quiet and beautifully furnished.
