We came here at the recommendation of a friend on a rainy night. It was complicated to find in our opinion and we accidentally parked in long-term parking and paid a bunch of money for just a few minutes. Most of the stores were closed...More

Was looking for some good shopping in Montreal and never saw it. Mediocre stores at best. Many vacant store fronts as well. Looks as if there are only two categories for shopping in Montreal - very high-end or low-end. Not much in between. Food courts...More

The concept of having so many shops underground and having connecting passageways to many hotels and attractions is amazing. If you really hate shopping malls this may not be for you but the engineering feat is pretty incredible. Rain, thunderstorm, snow - no problem just...More

We visited Montreal's UndergrBut the uniqueness of the underground experience was interesting to us.ound not knowing what to expect. It's shops and stores. In the winter this would be great and in summer a respite from the heat.

Everything you could want to shop for under Montreal! From grocery stores to touristic trinkets, movie theater and everything inbetween.

How to find it: We walked from our hotel on Blvd Rene Levesque, turn left to St. Catherine street, follow the street toward McGill, maybe after 10-15+ blocks, we found Eaton Center on the right side. Eaton Center is a big shopping mall. Go inside,...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
