Two Days in Hôtel Gault, Montreal

Two Days in Hôtel Gault, Montreal

Right after our event with Ford, everyone headed back to Toronto except me. I was set to stay a night in Montreal to meet with my agent and a few friends. Turned out I got sick from yesterday’s activities. I had to cancel a few meetings as I needed a rest. This was also my first solo trip so I had no one take my photo but hey gotta practice asking strangers to take your photos sometime! lol

I got a suite at Hôtel Gault, probably the most Instagramable building in Old Montreal. I love staying in Old Port, because of the architecture and very European ambience it has. I also love the food scene so I listed my Top Ten places to check out when visiting (you can find it below) for food and scenery.

I arrived around 4 pm from Montreal Airport. I downloaded an app to get Tesla Taxis, which was pretty cool because I have never been inside a tesla or rode one.

The hotel lobby was pretty quiet when I arrived. It has its own restaurant, of course, french music is also on.

I’m so in love with the colours of the decor at the lobby.

They also have their own mini Library area where I spent my free time the next day reading a book while I wait for my flight.

anyone read My (not so) perfect life by sophia kinsella? It’s hilarious and I love it.

They gave me a suite upgrade to a junior suite, which was the corner room with the best view with the beautiful window. The room was so huge and beautiful.

The view makes you feel like you’re in Paris.

My Bed which was very soft and comfortable.

The washroom.

Filled with Molton Brown products.

And a sweet note with some cookies and Nespresso machine with lots of coffee options ( this was actually how I discovered Nespresso and tried it for the first time. I am not a big coffee fan as I already told you but I bought the exact same machine as a gift to my other half when I got back to Toronto!)

For Dinner, a friend of mine and I headed to Maggie Oakes, the decor is Modern with a touch of gold, green and marble. (My kind of decor)

Started with some cold Pinot Grigio

Bread

and a dozen different kind of Oysters from all over Canada.

Next came in the grilled chicken salad

Truffled Fries

homemade gnocchi & Migneron de Charlevoix

one of the tastiest burger and more fries..

We ended the night after 2 bottles of Pinot with so much laughter and bid each other farewell with a promise of seeing each other soon again.

I woke up the next day with a really bad fever, So I was only able to make it to my first and second meeting.

First breakfast was served in bed.. a fresh croissant and my new favorite Nespresso.

1st meeting was at the famous Tommy Cafe

We arrived too early for brunch so we settled with some freshly baked almond croissant.

After the 2nd meeting, I went back to my room and spent the whole day sleeping and resting. It was also super cold! it was about -18 so I couldn’t really push myself to go out but here are my top 10 places to go to in Old Montreal that I have been and surely the most Instagramamble place.

Restaurant/Cafe:    (Instagram Heaven)                                    

Tommy Cafe – perfect place for brunch and an amazing selection of coffee. Also get that avocado toast game here.

Maggie Oakes – I truly enjoyed my dinner here. The oysters and wine are the perfect combo. The washroom is connected to the hotel which is another place to take photos.

Mandy’s Salad Bar – For someone who self-conscious’s and wants to be healthy but take the most gorgeous interior at the same time. Ideal for Lunch!

Crew Collective & Cafe – I have died and went to Cafe heaven! The place is just too stunning to even leave. Also, a place to get fast wifi!

Olive and Gourmando – I love this place. I went here solo for brunch and they out me on a table by the window together with other people who are having brunch on their own. I didn’t feel alone at all and I also made a new friend from Vancouver and a local who told me to rent a bike and bike around the city! something for you to do this spring and summer!

Things To-Do:

-Place d’Armes – The perfect square to admire the beautiful french architecture, The Notre Dame church and Canada’s first bank.

-Saint-Paul Street- The liveliest street in Old Port. You’ll see restaurants and entertainment side by side. Also, a place to go to see some Art Gallery.

– Montréal Town Hall – Probably a place to feel like you’re in Paris as it was modelled after the Tours Town Hall near Paris. You can also find Château Ramezay Museum here to know more about the history of Quebec and Montreal.

Old Montreal Food Tour – probably the best way to explore the city is thru it’s food.

Mount Royal – I know it’s out of Old Montreal but it’s a must visit place to see the whole Montreal and perfect for walking around or a picnic for summer.

Also a walking Itinerary: Should be perfect for spring and summer

    That hotel is gorgeous! So elegant and modern. Plus big too, the room looked huge! We stayed in such a big room recently but this makes it look small! I love that last shot of you in the snow! So pretty!

    I love when hotels have restaurants inside, especially ones with good food and drinks. It makes for more convenience. Looks like my kind of hotel!

    I can totally see why this hotel is Instagrammable! The architecture is simply amazing, and the furnishing indoors is modern in contrast which I like. That bathtub is seriously dreams! You don’t see tubs like that in Tokyo 🙂

    That is such a beautiful hotel! The interiors of your room is basically the apartment decor of my dreams haha! The last time I was in Montreal it was only for a couple of hours. We stopped by on the way to Quebec. I hope to be able to stay for longer the next time I’m around. It looks beautiful. I’ll definitely have to check out your list of Instagrammable places. Gotta do it for the gram, right?! 😀
