My husband and I spend one night at "The Ice Hotel". It was worth the money ( we had a Groupon for half price), but one night was enough! The staff was very helpful and cheerful. It was very cold, but we were cozy in out arctic sleeping bags. Luckily, we did not have to get up in the middle... More

I have not been there, but I have heard that this is fun place to go with warm clothing. Really nothing to complain about, it's cold but you would know that because of the time of the year

An awesome experience! I didn't sleep over but had a chance to visit the rooms. Beautiful design, sculptures, and believe it a certain coziness. Built in fireplaces and a yummy Canadian maple whisky drink in a solid ice glass! A cool bar, dance area where you can keep warm by moving to the beat. A must see if you're in... More

The night I stayed it was colder inside (+20 F) than it was outside (+35F). But it snowed and behaved like proper winter weather. We stayed only one night, then moved over to the Ecological Reserve for the rest of the week. You have to go here. I have slept in a Caboose, a 747 outside Stockholm, the edge of... More

We went just to visit for the day. The whole place is made of ice (except the lavatories which where elsewhere). Ice beds, Ice bar - buy a shot of vodka in an ice glass, a North Face clothing store in a retail ice room. This place is great. Would definitely consider an overnight stay.

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
