Interesting tour

Kind of crowded but an interesting tour for me, and I'm not a huge hockey fan. Habs Hall of Fame had amazing artifacts!

I attend this location every year to see the Montreal Canadians play. I can honestly say that the atmosphere in the Bell Centre is like no other during a hockey game. Its easy to get to and it is very clean. We stay at the Marriott around the corner. It is a 3 minute walk to the arena from the... More

You can choose to conveniently park indoors at a fee or drive around and park for less or free, or take public transport (bus and metro). Resaturants... More

What a fantastic venue to see in concert! We saw DMB here a few days ago and it was fantastic! The event staff were friendly, cheerful, and respectful. Crowd was awesome! I will definitely come back to this venue!

Rather typical venue for sporting and other events. Personally, I liked the old Montreal Forum better.

The museum was very interesting and extremely accessible and organized. Paid tribute to original 6 teams, and other major rivals of past and present. We went through twice. The guided tour of the Bell Centre was very good. The guide was extremely knowledgable. Time well spent, even if you're not a Canadiens fan.

Went by just to say we had been there. I love that even on a random Tuesday afternoon they will let you in to go walk around and buy from the Team store. Prices weren't that bad either. Just note that unless you go to see the Hall of Fame Tour you cannot see the ice.

My husband and I attended the U2 concert in June. We found the venue clean, and the bathrooms and concession stands easily accessible. The venue was not hot or humid considering that at least 20,000 people were in attendance. The seating and sound is awesome at this venue and made for a memorable night. The Bell Centre is easily accessible... More

We stopped by the Bell centre to visit the official shop of the Canadiens and pick up t-shirts and hats. There is a wide selection and much better quality than in a souvenir shop.

Have been to multiple hockey games and some concerts at the Bell Centre, great layout, not a bad seat in the entire building, lots of concessions and washrooms, lines move quick even on the busiest night. Great atmosphere during the Canadiens games.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
