If you loved the movie Frozen, you may want to start planning a trip to Quebec City, Canada.
At the time of this article, it was 28 degrees (Fahrenheit) in Quebec City—and that seemed like sort of a toasty point when compared to the upcoming week’s forecast. Within just a few days, temps are expected to drop to -6, with -17 a real possibility. (Just writing that made me shiver.) However, I’m guessing people will brave the chilly temperatures for a chance to stay in a Frozen-themed hotel room.
The Hôtel de Glace just announced plans to unveil the room this weekend. The hotel is very well known for its aesthetics, which includes 32,000 square feet of ice and snow. However, that’s not just outside. The actual hotel is made up of the cold stuff. Open from January 3 to March 23, 2014, the hotel includes approximately 500 tons of ice and 15,000 tons of snow.
This year’s icy attractions will include the “Frozen Suite,” a space modeled after the bedrooms of Disney’s newest characters, Anna and Elsa. The room was built in conjunction with the film’s art director, Michael Giaimo. The Hôtel de Glace is also planning to feature the “Frozen Activity Cave,” which will be located on the property for all guests to enjoy.
The themed suite will remain open through the rest of the hotel’s season, which happens to end five days after the movie comes out on Blu-ray and DVD. Would you consider staying in a Frozen-themed room that’s actually… well, frozen?
Hotel guests can expect ice sculpting, guided tours, an isolating sleeping bag for snuggling atop the room’s icy bed base, and average temperatures ranging from -13 to 41 degrees (Fahrenheit). It looks absolutely gorgeous, but I’d need an entire suitcase dedicated to just socks.
According to the hotel’s website, an average overnight stay will run you $219. However, there’s no word on what it will cost to live like a Disney princess.

There is also traditionally a palais de glace, an ice palace, in Quebec City at Mardi Gras time. They call it carnival there. It’s also made of nothing but ice, and parties and dances are held there around the clock. The ice sculptures are set up on the Rue (street) Saint Roch, and they are marvelous. If you don’t like ice, stay in Victorian splendour at the Chateau Frontenac, or anywhere else.
Staying in an ice hotel is one of the items on my life list. And that was BEFORE I knew about the Frozen room. So a big YES from me.
