The Hôtel de Grace is the only hotel made entirely out of ice and snow in America. It is built every year starting in November and it is open to the public from the beginning of January to the end of March. One of a kind, it has been blowing guests away by its ephemeral beauty since 2001. If you haven't seen it yet, here are 20 pictures to convince you that it is worth a trip.
Every year, around 40 rooms make up the Hôtel de Glace, half of which are sculpted according to the theme chosen for that year.
The hotel also contains a chapel for weddings, a slide, a grand entrance hall and a bar where you can select one of the winter themed cocktails served in an ice glass.
Guests can stay overnight like in any regular hotel. Of course, the rooms are not heated, but the heavy duty sleeping bags work like a charm.
