Great location, great staff, great room. Stayed for 4 nights on our first visit to Montreal. Hotel is in a great location, pretty central. We have a deluxe city view room and the room was huge. Bathroom was epic. Pretty much everything you could need. Quiet and well finished. Are in the restaurant on one evening. Food was ok, not amazing and pretty expensive for what it was. Would definitely stay again.

This is just a gorgeous first rate hotel! Stunning restoration of the original Birks and sons jewelry store - the Tiffany’s of Canada - into a beautiful bar and restaurant, lobby and concierge area while main ting half the ground floor as the elite Birks Jewelers. My room was elegant and looked out of a beautiful church - other rooms look at the park across the street - Phillips Square. The room was very quiet - but the staff was exceptional- from the front desk to the coffee and water man on my floor. The restaurant and bar are very chic but not overwhelming. I ate at the bar and it was delicious- once again - great staff.

Dear Timmins, What a wonderful comment. First of all, we would like to thank you for the Hotel Birks Montreal for your recent stay in the city and for taking the time to share your thoughts online! As we strive to ensure that all of our guests have a memorable experience, we are thrilled to have made such an impact on your visit to Montreal! We truly strive to excel in the hospitality industry, so it is very gratifying for us to see that we have achieved this ambition. Our teams are dedicated to providing luxurious and personalized service to our guests. To receive such a positive review in our survey is very gratifying for them. We are indeed ideally located in the heart of St-Catherine Street, the main shopping street, and within walking distance of the most emblematic areas of the city, such as Old Montreal and Place des Arts! Early arrival is a service that requires an adjustment of labour, which implies an additional cost like all extra services. As far as parking we offer a valet service which ensures that our staff takes charge of the vehicle from the arrival, stores it in the garage and ensures unlimited access day and night to the vehicle within minutes. We are sorry to hear that this was not convenient for you. Once again, we thank you for the amazing score you have granted us! We really look forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful property! Best regards, Luigi Rantucci Guest Relation Manager

Hotel Birks is a beautiful hotel that is located centrally and close to many amenities - transportation, shopping, restaurants. My partner and I stayed 3 nights and used their valet services. We were impressed with the service levels of their staff, they were polite, helpful and professional from the beginning of our stay to the end. They also have a lovely restaurant and although they were short-staffed the evening we arrived, our server was nonetheless professional and accommodating. My partner and I travel leisurely and have stayed at various hotels, B&B's, etc. From my experience, the service quality from this hotel has been exceptional and in my opinion, is one of the best. I intend to stay there each time we visit Montreal (as long as they have a room available). It's simply nice to stay at a hotel where you know you can rely on the staff for your needs so you can focus your time and energy on enjoying the city.

Dear Annvic2022, Thank you so much for this outstanding comment!!! This is what we work so hard for!!! The hospitality industry has faced some really tough times lately and now that we are back to normal it is so satisfying to once again be able to provide our guests with services of the highest standard. Indeed, this is the main aspiration and the most coveted reward for all hotel employees, who strive to provide our guests with the most personalised service and devoted attention. Your kind words will be passed on to them as a reward for their strenuous efforts! We are proud of the extraordinary beauty of our hotel, which is a historic jewel of last century's architecture and whose location is enviable: in the heart of downton and a stone's throw from Montreal's most popular and interesting neighbourhoods, such as Place des Arts, the Old Town and the shopping district! In addition, we are proud to be able to count among our luxury services those of our fantastic restaurant Henri Brasserie Française, which offers delicious dishes based on French cuisine, but with a typically Montreal touch thanks to top-quality local products. We are very happy to read that you consider our hotel one of the best you have ever stayed in. The fact that you have chosen our establishment as a special place in Montreal is a real joy for us, as our goal is to make our guests feel at home away from home!!! We are looking forward to welcoming you back in the nearest future. Warm regards, Luigi Rantucci Guest Relation Manager

We booked a terrace room #506 for our 40th wedding anniversary trip. The room has a great balcony overlooking the square and the Montreal skyline and comfortable chairs. The room also has a luxurious marble bathroom, very comfortable bed and a gas fireplace. We walked everywhere - to Old Montreal, the Latin Quarter, the Museum of Fine Arts. Excellent location for everywhere we wanted to visit over our long weekend. The staff was friendly and the hotel is in excellent condition. We plan to stay here again next time we visit this beautiful city.
