Montreal Ice hotel is inspired by similar installations in Europe, such as the Lainio Snow Village in Ylläsjärvi, Finland,
but what makes the Montreal Ice Hotel and Snow Village so different is the fact that it's not a resort removed from the city.
Rather, it's part of the city, a ten-minute subway ride or five-minute car drive from downtown Montreal,
and a stone's throw from the Montreal Casino, representing the only snow village in the world located in a major metropolitan area.
The ice hotel features three room formats, each with ambient temperatures ranging from -2 to -5°C (23° to 28°F)
