By my title I don't mean to say that the rooms (it goes without saying at a place like Gault that they were clean in excess of quotidian cleanliness). The interior design was exquisite. The ceilings are high making the rooms feel exceptionally spacious. With regard to decor: Nothing was extraneous, not even paint. Many walls and floors made do with polished cement. The furniture plays a fine balance between modernist chic and functionality.
One unexpected surprise was that the bed was the most comfortable I have slept on in recent memory. The TV and bath were large but unobtrusive. Let me be clear here: you can open a massive sliding door and watch tv from the tub.
The only downside is that it isn't the cheapest hotel in Vieux-Montreal, but, hey, you get what you pay for.

- 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.

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.
