The Birks Hotel is a new jewel in Montréal accommodation
Birks jewellers has been a Montréal icon since the 1800s, with its flagship store on Square Phillips taking the title of the second biggest jewellery shop in the world (surpassed in size only by Tiffany in New York). This fall, the Les Hôtels St-Martin group unveiled the Hotel Birks, the company’s first 5-star property in North America – a gem of hospitality perched atop the historical shop where Montrealers have purchased their wedding bands and jewellery for over 200 years. One step into the ornate lobby will have your attendees saying, “I do!”
The deluxe treatment
Rooms at the Hotel Birks range from classic elegant simplicity to the Grand Montréal Terrasse rooms with 5th floor views over Square Phillips and a gas fireplace. Turn up the glitz and glamour with one of the hotel’s suites: the 743-square feet Anvers Suite, the two-floor Montblanc Suite or the penthouse Vendôme Suite with a stunning view over downtown Montréal. Your guests will feel even more pampered with a treatment at the spa and hammam, modelled after traditional Moroccan and Roman baths.
Event spaces that sparkle
The Hotel Birks is also the perfect spot to host meetings and events in bustling downtown Montréal, offering conference rooms and three opulent spaces sure to leave an impression.
- Henri Brasserie Française
Events requiring a grand touch should look no further than the dazzling dining room of the Henri Brasserie Française, Hotel Birks’ in-house restaurant (who also offer 24/7 room service). With room for 140 guests, the eye-popping surroundings are second only to the culinary feats of the kitchen’s classic French fare. It’s a great – and gourmet – spot for banquets, corporate events or receptions.
- Phillips Salon
Comfortably accommodating up to 30 guests for cocktails and networking events, the intimate and modern Phillips Salon’s glass walls overlook the elegant Henri Brasserie Française dining room.
- Bar Lounge Henri
Proclaimed Montréal’s “only true lounge bar,” the Bar Lounge Henri is also the largest establishment of its kind in the heart of downtown. Up to 80 guests will love the personalized furniture and design flourishes, guaranteeing an unforgettably chic experience.
