Fodor's Review

The first of its kind in North America, this hotel is entirely built from ice and snow each year, and open from the first week in January to the end of March. You can tour the art galleries of ice sculptures, get married in the chapel, lounge in the hot tub, have a drink in a glass made of ice at the bar made of ice, dance in the ice club, then nestle into a bed, made of ice but lined with deerskin (a warm sleeping bag is also provided). It's an interesting mix between

boutique (rooms have special themes and designs) and roughing it (toilets are outside) that makes for a unique experience. The standard overnight stay packages start at around C$199 per person and include a welcome cocktail served in an ice glass, access to the Nordic area's hot tubs and sauna, and a hot breakfast. If you'd rather not brave the frigid temperatures for a whole night, you can take a tour of the facilities for C$17.50.
