The melting Ice Hotel

Having grown up in a cold climate, the idea of staying at an hotel made of ice is fairly low on my list of desired places to go. The Ice Hotel is built every year from ice carved from the Torne River. Gizmodo is currently featuring images of the current state of the Ice Hotel (which closes in April). I'd much rather visit now and have a poke around the melting ruins.
