Critic Reviews



A heritage boutique hotel with serious design chops, the Gault attracts movie stars and style mavens, none of whom would ever guess it was a cotton factory in the 1800s.

Fodor's Choice



The blond wood and smooth concrete walls and floors of the lobby are counterbalanced by colorful contemporary furniture and photography by local artists.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

Condé Nast Traveler


A quick walk to the heart of Old Montreal, the grand bones of the Gault proudly exhibit its 1871 warehouse origins. Inside, the lobby and thirty uniquely appointed suites wow with 21st century design-forward minimalist chic.

Travel + Leisure


There's contemporary Italian furniture (Bertoia Bird chairs, Tolomeo lamps) and exposed brickwork in the 30 somber-hued rooms; heated bathroom floors punctuated by cast-iron columns dating from the building’s textile-factory days; and a colorful downstairs lounge.
