If it’s minus 20 outside I understand why you would want to be able to move around in climate controlled conditions, get lunch or get on the train. This is a collection of shops, food joints and train stations that came about by accident and...More

Took a one and a half hour walking tour(highly recommended). Simply amazing that all these malls are under ground.

The Underground is a great respite from the heat or cold. The street level stores fronts seem to be easier to identify than in the Underground. The location and directions for several stores could be better. It might also help to provide a map so...More

Our underground mall is the perfect venue for comfortable shopping, window shopping and restaurant hopping when temperatures drop way below freezing point, and we are grateful to have it, avoiding slippery sidewalks in the process.

It seemed once we were in the Underground City that we were in a mall that just went on forever. Lots of great shops and areas where water features and public area for relaxing make this a happening kind of place. We enjoyed a couple...More

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

The Queen E and the InterContinental. These are high end facilities. I am not aware of any mid-range hotels attached to the underground city. That does not mean there are none. Peel Street has a hotel just across the street... More

There isn't a "best" entrance. It depends on where you are. If you just want to walk through then start anywhere and walk in any direction. There are multiple directions to go and sometimes more than one way of going to the... More
