The Hotel Birks beckons you


Situated steps and minutes away from the best Montreal has to offer, we are delighted to make you part of our history.



A Montreal treasure since 1879 


A legacy begins

Legendary Canadian entrepreneur, Henry Birks, founds the jewelry company, Birks, and opens a store on St. James Street.


A momentous relocation

Birks moves to Square Phillips and launches its flagship store, a Montreal landmark to this day.


A magnificent store expands

The Montreal flagship grows to 18,000 square feet and dazzles with its ornate architecture and an array of modern amenities, including electrical and heating systems.

1912 – 1923

The New Birks Building

Henry Birks aims higher and commissions his iconic 10-floor building on the southwest corner of Square Phillips and Cathart St., conceived by architects Percy Erskine and George Taylor Hyde. By 1923, Birks is the second largest jewelry store in the world, second only to Tiffany in New York.


The Hotel Birks arrives

Following a meticulous restoration of the Birks building, Les Hôtels St-Martin debuts its first North American 5-star property.

The Grand Entrance

Begin your story

Stroll through the ornate front doors, past the world-famous Birks jewelry store and the bustling Henri Brasserie Française, and enter a space where every single historical architectural detail, from the intricate original ceiling moldings to the 19th century soaring columns, has been gloriously restored to enchant you with contemporary accents of marble, wood, golden metals, and noble materials.


The Living Spaces

A tapestry of rooms

Formerly occupied by the Birks’ store offices, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors were painstakingly stripped to reveal their original surfaces and large windows, then, restored to accommodate charismatic rooms in soothing tones of greige, each with a unique layout and privileged views. The damaged 5th floor, which once housed Birks’ watch-making department, was entirely replaced with two crowning glass-enclosed floors, luminous rooms, and intimate balconies overlooking the city.
