The DNA: Housed in a building from 1871 – a former carpet factory – in Old Montreal, Hotel Gault is an indie boutique hotel where you will find none of the French country style many competitors offer. Instead, sleek and minimalist open spaces set the tone. The spacious, loft-style rooms and suites feature large picture windows, designer Italian beds and heated bathroom floors. With its Arne Jacobsen swan chairs, Shin and Tomoko Azumi bar stools and Francesco Binfaré sofas, the lounge and bar could be a location for Mad Men.
