During our stay at Le Westin Montreal, we extensively used the famous Montreal’s Underground City (RÉSO) to go to Complexe Guy-Favreau, Place des Arts, Musee d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, various shops/malls and eateries in the Underground City, and China Town restaurants. We also used Underground City to enter/exit Montreal’s efficient metro networks to visit such attractions as Cathedral of Marie-Reine-du-Monde, Saint Joseph's Oratory of Mount Royal, Monument to Sir George-Etienne Cartier, etc. The climate controlled Underground City with over 1,600 shops/services had many concourses and tunnels on multiple stories with good lighting, making the world’s largest underground complex excellent choice for Montreal residents and visitors alike to move around especially during adverse weather conditions. Since many shopping malls, apartment buildings, hotels, banks, offices, museums, universities were connected with this underground network, this Underground City network was especially efficient and useful arrangement. Although we had read about this underground network before actually entering it, we were amazed at its enormous magnitude, colorfulness and efficiency. Montreal’s Underground City is a must visit site. As matter of fact, it is a virtually a must use site while in Montreal.

I spent just an hour or two in the Underground City during my quick trip to Montreal. At that time, it was FREEZING—snowflakes were bombarding everything in their path, and snow and sludge were amassing over an inch. I did a bit of walking around, but I felt that time could be a little better spent if I checked out the oasis of warmth and energy that Montreal houses under its already-iconic streets. After exploring (and not even seeing all it has to offer!), I can assert that a venture down to the Underground City is a must-do in Montreal if you have the time. It has activities you can appreciate any time of year. Options for dining, shopping, and entertainment are abundant. I grabbed a bite at a bagel shop, and it was super filling for finishing my adventurous exploration that day. Many more shopping/dining venues can be found in areas I didn’t even manage to see, but where I was, there was plenty to satisfy your needs. Along with these amenities, I must remark that the architecture and atmosphere is truly unique. In Victoria Square, where I spent most of my time, historic brick blended with modern, glass windows to create a stunning ambiance for folks. It all was so open and spacious, a feel that I always appreciate. As just one aspect I thought could have been improved, as coincidentally with other places I visited in Montreal this trip, I would’ve liked signage to have been clearer and more prevalent. I seriously do possess strong navigation skills, but it took me way more time than it should’ve for me to scout out restrooms, elevators to higher floors, etc. I honestly don’t know why signage has been such a large issue on this trip, but oh well...just saying! In any case, especially since I only checked out a portion of the Underground City, I hope to prioritize it all when I embark on my next trip to Montreal. It is genuinely a delightful destination to spend time in chilly winter months or for memorable shopping any time of year. Despite poor signage, I still recommend taking at least an hour to stroll around. Kudos to the City of Montreal for establishing such an excellent gathering place!

Maybe if I stayed in Montreal longer I could have figured it out, and the signs where one knows to enter this underground city were knowable to us.... But we really couldn’t figure it out so well. Despite the non ease of use for us, the locals who know this underground city dine and shop here. In some stores on the city streets one can enter thru an escalator, and that was helpful. On a snowy day, it must be a wonderful alternative to shopping outside in freezing weather. Yes, the metro connects to some of this. Also, there was a Barbie exhibit which must be nice for young girls .

While this is not really an attraction, it IS a great place for shopping. It's a vast network of underground shopping sprawling out under the city. Tons of stores and many places to eat. Great for a rainy day or if it's just too cold to walk outside.
