Stores are ordinary, regular American chains. Easy to get lost. Waste of time. Useful in winter for office workers. Utilitarian. Worst "attraction" in Montreal

Every store and food court you’ve ever seen is here. It’s VERY confusing to navigate even though we had a map. Basically you’re there to shop/browse, see the sights, so unless you’re absolutely hunting for something particular it’s fine. Wander around and enjoy it. There...More

We are a little disappointed with the so called underground city, we walked around for miles, and only saw some mediocre shops. The paths were not stroller friendly, many stairs and escalators throughout the tunnels. There are also quite some homeless in the underground food...More

Best reason to visit is to get out of the often difficult weather in Montreal. Shop, eat & drink and walk to another part of town, all out of the weather. Not especially pretty, but practical.

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

restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
