Hotel De Glace or The Ice Hotel near Quebec City, Quebec, Canada is the first and only true ice hotel in North America. The Ice hotel opened on New Year's Day in 2001. For its first year, it was located in Montmorency Falls Park, on the outskirts of Quebec City, with plans right from the beginning to move to the nearby Duchesnay resort for its next year. It had been built there from 2002 to 2010. In 2011, the Hôtel de Glace moved to a new site, in Charlesbourg.

The hotel has been described as a "tourist hotspot" and is backed by Quebec's tourism department. There is a chapel where weddings are celebrated. The Hôtel de Glace has been described as one of the "10 dream wedding locations."

Tours are available in French and in English, seven days a week, and the hotel is otherwise open to the public. After the thirteenth season, the official statistics reported over a million visitors and 43,000 overnight guests. In its fifth season, it hosted around 70,000 tourists.
