“Stylish and Attentive to You and Your Pet”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This boutique hotel has star quality. They understand service that is attentive without being intrusive. This is all packaged in an ambiance of 'industrial modern' design that is warmly inviting and relaxing with spacious rooms. Overall feeling is one of 'low-key cool', like it is a great secret and you are one of the lucky few being in on it. Great to sit and have a cocktail off in the back 'living room'. Location is perfect off a quiet street just a couple minutes to the more pedestrian tourist street in old city. This was our dog's first 'international' trip. He was acknowledged and greeted as a valued guest of the hotel - really made to feel welcome. Our room was prepared with a place mat with water and food bowl.
We had the misfortune while out in another part of town dining, of having our truck window smashed outside the restaurant. When we returned to the hotel, they supplied us with materials to close the window, ensured it was directly in front with security camera on it, and located a window glass repair the next morning. they took care of us making it easy to get this all done, and made the event much less stressful. Thanks to all at Hotel Gault for making us feel like we did want to return to Montreal.

An enthusiastic two thumbs up for Hotel Gault. The hotel's design offered a handsome mixture of a traditional and historic building with a contemporary, smart and clean interior. We found the room extremely comfortable, but the minimalist décor might not be everyone's cup of tea. The welcome cookies were a nice touch.

The area around the hotel is somewhat quieter than many hotels deeper in old Montreal, but this suited us just fine as we weren't woken by late night partiers. Gault is also conveniently located just minutes away from a Metro station.

Staff were all very pleasant, accommodating, and pro-active, and were very good-natured when we wanted to switch to a room different from the one we were first given.

The hotel was well maintained. Only a few minor niggles – the water pressure in the shower could have been a bit stronger, as could the in-floor heating in the bathroom. Perhaps a small business lounge with computer and printer could be created in the lounge in the back on the first floor, alleviating the need to ask staff to print things out (although they were more than happy to do so).

All in all, Gault offered an experience that exceeded our expectations at a reasonable price.

Working long hours and sometimes nights in Montreal, I needed a quiet first class hotel and The Gault met my needs. I had a lovely top floor suite with a wrap around terrace , good work desk and handy kitchen. The epople working there are all pleasant and helpful and friendly. Definitely will return. Hall noise is a slight problem, but no biggie. Good beds help. Room service is awful.

A special shout out to YANNICK who is a real gem! you are lucky to have such a fantastic person on your team who greeted us daily and was warm, friendly and fabulous! And of course - HELPFUL!

The building is beautiful, the hotel interior is cool, and inviting. The room is spacious and clean, and well designed,very quiet and comfortable. The staff is friendly and professional. We got complimentary tea and cookies delivered to our room after we checked in. And from that time forward there was super attention to detail. The valet even put fresh water bottles in our car for the ride home.The location is ideal for exploring old Montreal, and downtown. We will stay here again.

We've stayed at Hotel Gualt a few times now and absolutely love it. This hotel is in a great location, in Old Montreal and near the metro to travel around. The staff are helpful and friendly, providing suggestions and offering bottles of water. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Truly this hotel treats you like royalty, even receiving warm cookies delivered to your door.

We visited over President's Day weekend and with our dog. All were made to feel incredibly welcome. The lobby's design is world-class but it also feels like you're sitting in your living room having a drink by the fire when you spend time downstairs. The room itself was very large with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows and a shower/bathroom that was one of the best we've ever seen. Perfect water pressure, lots of fluffy towels, sink space galore.
We ate lunch and breakfast at the hotel and the food was delicious. It's interesting because the staff is, for the most part, quite young, but they're all very professional and conscientious. It's the type of hotel you leave waving behind you at all the new friends you've made.
