It is well worth it to check out this attraction. A little over-priced, considering you also have to add another $5 if you want to snowshoe or toboggan, but considering how much time and money goes into creating this it is worth it. The rooms are small but really, they're just meant for sleeping. Beautiful architecture throughout. And every year... More

Visited this attraction during my stay at the Four Points which is located nearby. It is definitely a piece of impressive snow and ice art. The feed to enter the Hotel is acceptable;during my visit several bus tours were there as well; guided tours are available both in English and French. The temperature inside the hotel complex is indeed very... More

The hotel is amazing. People can wander around, take photos, and sit on the beds and chairs that are carved out of blocks of ice. Murals and sculptures in some bedrooms are created around themes. There was a big slide made of ice in the lobby. It was colder inside the hotel than outside, so dress warmly.

The place is grand and beautiful! Everything is ice or snow so you have to dress appropriately. I like how there was an ice bar where the drink menu was extensive. I got the hot chocolate which I held on for quite long as it helped keep my hands warm. There's also nice fireplace but it didn't give any warmth... More

What fun! My family and I did not stay At the hotel we were there for the tour. It was so amazing to us. It was like an ice town, at first I thought we were in the wrong place, b/c there is a main building that was not shown in the pics. However, I guess we were not the... More

Definitely a must-see experience! We did the Behind the Scenes tour on a Saturday and it was neat to learn more about the construction and also be able to check out the bars, chapel, and rooms. There were a lot of people though which made going in the rooms with their narrow entryways a bit frustrating. And don't expect quite... More

This is a must see if you are up in the Quebec City area! Many rooms as unique in their design. Caught a taxi both ways with no problems from Old Quebec city.

very interesting place to visit, hard to believe it's man made, so much incredible work. You should try and see all the different rooms but each has there own theme, the chapel is gorgeous and the front entrance and bar area is amazing. A little pricey, but once in a lifetime experience so worth it.

48 students and 4 adults on a school trip visited the Ice Hotel. Beautiful! I could never stay overnight there, but so glad I had to chance to see it. Awesome theme suites. The bar area was impressive, but too expensive to purchase anything. Go see it if you have a chance.
