I was there for a game last december and although it wasn't a good game for the Canadien's, the experience of watching a live game at Bell was magical. The building is also spacious with hall of fame spots of the team for photo opportunities.

Saw two games over the weekend and the Habs won them both. Always love going to the Bell Centre. The staff are so helpful and polite and the beer is always good and cold.

We were able to catch 3 games in 6 nights here while we were in town...Buffalo, Edmonton and Carolina. The struggling Habs were able to pick up 2 wins which was good for the home crowd. The fans love their hockey team which makes for a lively atmosphere. Too bad ticket prices are so high!

Ok so you could go to the Montreal Pool Room for the best steamies AND to a Habs game for the best toasties. Not anymore. They are so focussed on serving up a 10$ dog that they forgot that it actually had to be good. Cold sausage, cardboard bun and staring down a seller that would rather be visiting a... More

We spent some time at Centre Bell to see Cirque du Soleil's Toruk show. The staff here were friendly, helpful and efficient. Security lines, although long, moved quickly and people of concern were taken aside to keep the flow of people moving. The direct connection to RESO was of great benefit as well. We were able to get here from... More

Montreal Canadians hockey rink. Very expensive for what you get. Hot dogs $5.00 Beer draft in plastic cup $10.00. No enouht bathrooms for the crowd. Very badly designed. Good place to watch a hockey game.

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.
