Chill Out At The Ice Hotel In Quebec

"Beautiful. And frigid," is the comment left by one guest at Canada’s Ice Hotel, about 15 minutes from Québec City. And it gets its name, not surprisingly, from the fact that nearly everything in the hotel is made of frozen water. That includes the walls, ceilings, beds, furniture, chandeliers -- even the glasses you drink from at the bar.
