Go see it. It's pretty cool. Don't stay there, not that cool. Do not take the guided tour; waste of money...

Yes, make the drive 15 minutes from Quebec City, into a whole other world! The Ice Hotel is breath taking and beautiful. We were able to tour every inch of the hotel including over 40 suites, many of which are beautifully carved ice and snow walls, beds of ice. Bar area and Chapel are amazing...truly impressive. But bring your long... More

Whether you stay overnight or just take a tour, a must see. The most beautiful ice designs and rooms you will ever see- plus a bar made totally of ice!

Worth the trip - don't think you need to stay over night. did the behind the scenes tour (30) at 4pm- it was an hour, you don't really see much - but then again, it is super cold so you might not need more time. Included in the tour is a drink (up to 850)and you make an ice glass...so... More

The Hotel de Glace is definitely worth the visit if you're in Quebec City during the winter. Make sure you are there before the end of March when it closes. It can sometimes close a few weeks early due to weather. Make sure you take the behind the scenes tour which allows you to make your own ice cups, which... More

This is an amazing place to visit, and well worth the time and money. Personally, I don't have an interest in the staying there, just visiting and exploring. We traveled as two families of four with two couples each with kids ranging from 8 to 12. After some research from website and other sources, here is what I found useful... More

Having NEVER seen this before I can say that I was impressed. Quite bigger than what I had imagined at first. Love visiting the ice sculptures everywhere inside. A feast for the picture lovers. Have to visit the BEDROOMS that each have a theme carved out in the walls with lighting effects that makes for even more ambiance. You can... More

So they take the snow and ice and build a unique hotel with uniquely themed rooms particular to that season. They chisel beds, chairs, statues, drink glasses, and a full sized second story slide!!! And at the end of the season it all melts away and you were one of a hand full of people to experience THAT hotel. The... More

Everything is ice! Except your blanket. There are different themes for each room. I had a chuckle at the beach themed room. Really cool to tour. I wasn't adventurous enough to stay the night. Of course there are no bathrooms in the rooms. The glasses at the bar are ice. DO NOT FORGET YOUR MITTENS!
