Great concert venue

Great location for concerts; watched Alice Cooper and Motley Crüe. Sure it would be fantastic to see the Canadiens there too.

Bell Centre is the place where the Canadiens of Montreal play. The ambiance is eerie but the price makes you think twice about everything

You need to live this experience once in your life time. Going to the bell center is the same as going to go see a Manchester United game, same vibe!

Fun stop for Habs fans. Was really hard to find during construction but ask security for directions.

Wife decided she wanted to go to see Ariana Grande. It was easy to get a hotel and walk to the show. It's not far down from St Catherines street around Guy toward Rene Levesque. Was an easy entrance and good help to your seat. Easy as well after the show and not a feeling of overcrowding even though the... More

If you are a hockey fan, and you are able to get tickets, then you will be entering the hallowed shrine of the NHL. There are no hockey fans more serious and vocal about the game or supportive of the team than Montreal Canadiens fans. You are completely swept up in the game with the fans all around you. A...

My daughter and I are huge hockey fans and truly ejoyed the Bell Centre tour. Gabriel was our guide and he was terrific. Seeing the dressing room complete with motion detection sliding steel-look doors, the alumni lounge, 302 seat press booth, and the Canadiens Hall of Fame was exciting for us. It was one hour and $6 each.

So as I'm walking into the Centre security pulls me aside and says no backpacks. I point to a woman with a Louis Vuitton purse twice the size of my small backpack. "What about her?" I ask. "That's a purse," he says. So...if my backpack had one strap instead of two...then... Stupid, arbitrary policy made by little people with little... More

My 9 year-old hockey loving son and I took the guided tour. Prior to the tour, we took a self-guided walk through the Hall of Fame. It is nicely laid out and there are a lot of historic artifacts, not only of former Hab players, but also tributes to Original 6 teams / players. The tour of the arena itself... More

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.
