résumé: In the heart of beautiful Vieux-Montréal, the 4-star luxury of Hotel Gault offers tranquil privacy just a “stones throw” from the bustle of de la Commune, Vieux-Port, Place Jacques Cartier, and all the restaurants, galleries, and shopping one could desire. Built by A.F. Gault in 1871, and influenced by the Haussmann architecture of pre-belle époque Paris, the façade creates a special gravitas with vertical pilasters, floral details, and an elegant corner entrance that belies the immense, sleek lobby that features cast iron pillars supporting the contemporary open design. The lobby includes custom built modern furniture, and art fixtures by both Québec and Canadian artists.
the wherefore: Hidden on a quiet side street, the Gault is the perfect refuge for all travelers, especially those with abundant savoir-faire. All 30 suites feature French windows that open Juliet-style offering abundant natural light and a view of the laissez-faire life on the streets of Vieux-Montréal below, use of an iPad, and twice-daily housekeeping service. As well, suites are adorned with exposed brick walls, marble and glass showers, heated bathroom floors, and beds by FLOU®.
