Le Marriott Château Champlain

Why it made the list

A very short cab ride from the Bell Centre, this is a practical location that won’t have you totally breaking the bank. Plus, it’s easy to spot, with the hotel’s distinctive half-moon windows. Guests of the hotel from out of town can simply look up at the cityscape, look for the very tall building with the half-moon looking things all over it, and easily find their way back.

W Montréal

Why it made the list

While the hockey players don’t usually stay at the W, their celebrity fans find it to their liking—because it is very fancy and celebrities like fancy things. On game night, the lobby is sprinkled with Hollywood types and business moguls ready to watch some hockey (in style, of course).

Ritz-Carlton Montréal

Why it made the list

Psst! The players often stay here. Despite the Ritz-Carlton’s maniacal devotion to their guests’ privacy, word gets around—kind of like it is now, with us telling you this. It’s also kind of obvious because of the huge hockey bags in the lobby, the crates of coconut water and other odd deliveries on game days.

Loews Hôtel Vogue

Why it made the list

The recently-renovated lobby at the Loews Hôtel Vogue was made for mingling, which you can do pre or post game. From the open-concept seating to the four-sided plush banquet bench, this place is perfect for making friends (and probably also just yelling about hockey, which is cool, too) with other fans like yourself.

Le Centre Sheraton

Why it made the list

You can’t beat the price, with serviceable rooms starting at $180. This busy hotel is a magnet for hockey fans because of its convenient location--and the boisterous lobby bar, where you can wear your team’s jersey to start conversations with people (but hopefully not any fights—be nice!).
