Posted by

This week's Hallmarkie Baby, It’s Cold Inside was filmed in a unique, wonderful Ice Hotel located in Quebec, Canada. Would you stay in such a cold place like this?

The story revolves around a travel agent, Hannah, who is sent by her company to explore the potential of a new icy hotel as a holiday destination.

Hanna reluctantly accepts the assignment, missing her family vacation on a tropical cruise. But, the frozen complex was created by Ben, a handsome guy with a warm heart who may make Hannah's dreams come true.

The cast Jocelyn Hudon and Steve Lund

The movie stars Jocelyn Hudon as Hannah and Steve Lund as Ben, the designer of the resort. Kathryn Kohut plays Hannah's best friend Phoebe, who joins her after a recent breakup.

Baby, It’s Cold Inside was filmed in one of the best-known ice hotels in the world. Welcome to the ephemeral magic rooms of the Hôtel de Glace:

The real Baby, It’s Cold Inside Ice Hotel

It wasn't hard to find the hotel, as this is the only destination of its kind in America. This sort of a luxury, giant igloo, is the Hôtel de Glace, just 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City.

The resort is located on the site of the Village Vacances Valcartier in the small town of Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier.

Hotel de Glace
The movie was filmed at the 2021 edition of the Hôtel de Glace (the 21st version), as the whole place is melted and rebuilt in a different way every winter.

This massive carved ice cube opened the first day of the 21st century, on New Year's Day in 2001, although at the time it was in a different location.

Quebec tales and legends
It takes 50 workers around six weeks to build its majestic snow vaults, ice sculptures, and furniture. This year's theme was Quebec tales and legends.

The hotel is very similar to the 10 Below Ice Wine Lounge of the fictional Hollingbrook Winery where The Perfect Pairing was filmed.
