Icy Excellence at Hotel de Glace, Quebec

Chad Chisholm

We went to the Hotel de Glace in Quebec, Canada to check out this year’s “ice hotel.” The motif for 2020 is “20 years of magic” and we couldn’t agree more. The ever-evolving work is crafted by artisans from across the globe, sculpting the impermanent structure into fascinating structures and artful touches throughout the hotel. Whether staying the night in the chilly space or wandering through with a cocktail from the ice bar, the impressive construction will have your jaw agape. 

From thoughtfully themed rooms to elegantly executed public spaces and exquisite craftsmanship, the Hotel de Glace is an experience to enjoy for the whole family. Whether saying your vows in the chapel with 40 guests or enjoying a family trip to the unique hotel, guests of all ages will delight in the blend of impeccable workmanship and hospitality.
