What it is
An 1871 grande dame with 30 suites and a locally-beloved restaurant.
What it isn't
Stocked with resort-like amenities. But: you didn’t come all the way to Montreal to hit the pool, did you?
What we think
You might think, when you’re arriving at a more than century old hotel, that you’ll be sleeping with ghosts. But the Hotel Gault is as modern as they come, thanks to an over-the-top revamp that imbued each room with blonde wood built-ins, soaring ceilings and minimalist decor that would wow even Saarinen himself. No detail is overlooked here, which is why you’ll find heated floors in the bathroom and Casa Rovea linens on the beds. Upgrade to a Terrace Suite for an eagle’s eye overlook over Old Montreal and, yes, a private terrace—ideal for sunset cocktail sipping in envy-inducing style.
You're here because
You love nothing more than a historic hotel, but hate the cramped, often treacly interiors you often find in them. This marries the best of old and new in an Instagrammable hideaway.
Brunch is a must at Hotel Gault, because it’s among the few hotels that reveres it as much as you do. Today, you’re finding it impossible to decide between carmelized apple crepes with brown butter sauce, smoked cheddar tartines, or salmon gravlax with whipped cream cheese and capers… so you order it all. And why not? What happens North of the border stays North of the border.
