It is a night evening with friends for a nice drink. To stay overnight there? Not for everyone. The whole idea is to enjoy the site and "cool" effect. Make sure to wear the right canadian-made boots and fur coat (i suggest beaver).

We visited in February and it was extremely cold. Make sure you dress according to the weather. It is not warm inside the Hotel de Glace...remember, it's made of ice. It was gorgeous and 100% worth the visit to see something so unique. We even watched one chainsaw artist working on a room that had not opened yet. Amazing!

Definitely worth a trip outside of Quebec City! THe nightclub has solid ice shooter glasses with plenty of beverages to keep you warm.

Despite the freezing temperatures in February, I would recommend to visit the Hotel de Glace at night time. The building and rooms are lit up and looks better in photos. Once the tour is done, there is time for you to explore the hotel as you want and visit the ice bar to have beverages in a glass made of... More

This place was fun and interesting. It took my breath away, seeing all the sculptures and things. It's hard to believe people sleep there! It’s very cold, so dress VERY warmly!

One big tourist attraction. Big, bigger, biggest : how many rooms you need to be impressed? Maybe great for those who love ice "art". Not my cup of tea!

This is one of those must-see spots, interesting even if no events are happening. The structure is impressive, and the ice carvings are amazing (and the building is almost literally a maze). If one is claustrophobic it would not be a nice experience. Reception hall, bars, disco floor, chapel, and themed rooms are large but the ordinary bedrooms are small... More

We did the behind the scene tour, which I highly recommend. Very creative and beautiful. We even made our own ice glass to use for our cocktail at the end of the tour.
