Accommodation Insight

Guests have the opportunity to spend a night in this beautiful giant igloo. With its huge snow vaults and its crystalline ice sculptures, it literally can take your breath away.


Guests are transported from the comfort of downtown Quebec in the late afternoon and first brought to the Celsius Pavilion where they are briefed about their night in the snow. From pm guests are welcome to enter the Hotel de Glace and either head for their rooms for the night or sample an ice cold drink at the Ice Bar. 

When it's time to snuggle down for the night, choose from one of the comfortable rooms or indulge in one of the theme suites, complete with ice sculptures, beautifully cut from the ice. For a little more luxury, enjoy your own fireplace for a little extra warmth or perhaps even your own private spa!

Special arctic sleeping bags and blankets are provided to keep guests safe and warm during the night and special sleeping bags are also provided for children too.

At 9am the following morning, a hearty breakfast is served back in the warmth of the Celsius Pavilion. A welcome escape from the cold night. The atmosphere is buzzing with the excitement of the Hotel de Glace experience though before heading back to the city or perhaps out for one of the winter wonderland activities available close by.


Nordic relaxation area with outdoor spas and sauna, Ice Bar, free parking, grand ice slide, 24 hour guest reception and information service, Celsius Pavilion to warm up in!


Guided tours of the hotel are available. Dog sledding, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and hiking trails are all close by
