Whether it's a live concert or a Hockey game, the Bell Centre will likely be the venue. A few steps from downtown Montreal, this place should be on any visitor's tour of the city. And if you can get yor hands on tickets to a Habs game, you'd be in for a fantastic evening.

The Bell Center is the place to be for a hockey game. Allow extra time as they now search everyone going in. This could take 10 to 25 minutes Food and drinks are very expensive so we eat before the game. Games are always lively and fun, but the Center feels huge. I miss the intimacy of the Forum We...

The Habs have the same issue the Leafs have, tickets are unattainably expensive to many. That said if your willing to pay the price, the vibe here is a rare thing. Montrealers love their team and it shows. The house will be full no matter who is playing and you can always expect a great energy here (something that even... More

Came here to see Montreal play Pittsburgh, and splurged for lower bowl tickets. Sitting in the lower bowl was the best decision I have ever made. I would highly recommend. This was a regular season game I attended but I felt like I was at a Stanley Cup Final Game. The atmosphere of the arena was absolutely electric. All the... More

We sat in a VERY high seat for a concert, but still had a good view of the stage. With the typical rush of people at an event like this, my recommendation is that you stay in a hotel within walking distance. Parking can be difficult. Nice clean venue, bathrooms were clean. Food plentiful but very expensive (CDN $16+ for... More

This is a great building nicely located in downtown Montréal. Lots of hotel options in walking distance from the building and lots of restaurants near it too. If you want to shop before an event, you're really close to Sainte-Catherine street so there is some nice shops there too. They are currently building a condo tower in front of the... More

Its a great place to attend a Habs game or a concert. Parking is getting difficult with all the condo high rises going up. Depending on your seats it may be a walk to get to a washroom, but if you like hockey its an experience not to be missed especially during the playoffs

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.
