I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Classy, clean, specious rooms, hotel decorated with elegance & perfect location. The only note is that The housekeeping needs a little improvement, but in general they are doing fine.

The hotel is beautiful and the service was amazing. I emailed the concierge desk before we arrived to have cupcakes and balloons delivered on check-in. Everything was set up as instructed and they even delivered an extra treat to celebrate my niece's birthday. The rooms were beautifully appointed and they preserved a lot of the history of the building. The windows in the rooms were stunning and we had a great view of the park. My family felt welcomed during our entire stay and we are already planning on a trip back to this hotel. I feel like they have worked out a lot of the kinks mentioned in previous reviews. Our luggage was delivered from our car at valet straight to our rooms. My special requests to housekeeping were all arranged right down to the smallest detail. Our beds were amazingly soft and luxurious. The rainfall shower was a great treat to use in the morning. Honestly- we did not want to leave. The only real con we noticed was that we felt that room service was lacking in variety and a tad lackluster. We love snacks but you could only order snacks after 11 pm and they werent that appealing to us. We did have breakfast at the hotel though which was VERY tasty and the bar selection was very good.

Just returned from a girls weekend in Montreal. This beautiful hotel was the perfect place to stay. It is stunning architecturally - like staying in a jewellery box.

Just returned from a girls weekend in Montreal. This beautiful hotel was the perfect place to stay. It is stunning architecturally - like staying in a jewellery box. The lobby bar was the perfect spot for wine and cheese in the evening and coffee and a croissant in the morning, it was a 5-minute walk to the train station, and around the corner from excellent shopping. Our rooms were immaculately clean and timeless in their decor. So many beautiful little touches in our “standard” Queen room - from bathrobes to a fireplace to all of the little “extras” in the washroom. It was so quiet - not a peep from the hallway or the elevators. Staff were consistently friendly, helpful and non-intrusive. We honestly could not have asked for a better stay - highly, highly recommended. Read less

I have stayed at Hotel Birks three times over the course of the past year. Every time I’ve arrived, the front desk staff are welcoming and accommodating. Mostly, though, I’ve *always* loved the rooms. Because it is a building from early 19th Century, it’s solid construction and high ceilings make for gorgeous living. And the beds are super duper comfortable and luxurious. In addition, I’ve dined at the hotel restaurant Henri and had a wonderful time dining there, both at tables and at the bar. The service is great, the desserts particularly special, and a great atmosphere of feeling like an old world class but with contemporary awareness and sensibilities. Redhi is my favorite front desk staff member. He’s been very friendly and helpful. Read less
