Top 10 Unique Hotels
If you still harbor a childhood fantasy of camping out in your own snow fort, head to the Ice Hotel, just outside Quebec City. Comprised of 500 tons of ice and 15,000 tons of snow, this innovative hotel (open every winter, weather permitting, from January–April) includes 36 artistically designed rooms, the N’Ice Club, Ice Lounge, two art galleries, and even a wedding chapel, all made of solid H2O. While you may have to remain bundled up throughout your stay (though fireplaces, warm sleeping bags on fleece-sheeted and wool-blanketed beds, and heated washrooms are provided), this may well be the coolest place in North America. For an even more authentic experience, head to the original Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden.
