This is the kind of thing you have to do once. While I imagine it's fun to visit here on the tour and take in the amazing look of the place, the real challenge is in spending the night. The staff do a good job of explaining how to get into the sleeping bags and keep yourself warm. Make sure you bring a swimming suit and use the Nordic Spa. I was hesitant to get down to a bathing suit and robe and make my way across a frozen courtyard before being able to get into a hot tub, but once I was in the tub I was perfectly warm, and the experience was amazing. It was a little cloudy that night, but we still managed to see many stars.
One bit of advice for those who are planning to stay here next year. We were there just after the hotel opened for the season - on the second night it was open. On the one hand, not all of the hotel was completed - the room with the slide in it had not been built yet. On the other hand, this also meant that they only had the bare minimum of rooms built, only about 14. I really appreciated having a smaller number of people staying at the hotel when I was there. There are a limited number of showers and sinks, and the 4 hot tubs in the spa only hold about 6 people each, so I can see things getting crowded and uncomfortable later in the season, when there are over 40 rooms occupied. I think you're better off going early in the season.
