My wife and I spent the night here, and while the experience was awesome and the physical hotel is incredible, the facilities are not so great. Since they cater to all the daytime visitors who come to take a tour of the hotel, your room is only available after 9pm (not that you'd want to sit in your room anyways, so that isn't a big deal). The issue we had was that there weren't any bathrooms specifically for hotel guests - you shared the public restrooms that all the visitors used. I'm not a picky person and wouldn't really care, except that the mens room smelled like pee and I wouldn't really want to use it without a hazmat suit. And the locker situation could be a lot better laid out - everyone is on top of one another at night when the spa opens and everyone is trying to change into bathing suits. For $250 per person, they could certainly make some small improvements to help make the experience better. Oh, and the breakfast is pretty lousy. Lastly, there was snowshoeing, but the 'trail' wasn't really marked. There was a little sign when you start out, and then nothing. So we wandered in a circle twice before calling it quits. That would be easy to fix with some trail markers.
Otherwise, the hotel itself is impressive. The ice sculptures are amazing to walk around and photograph. The ice slide was a lot of fun, and the bar was very well done. I would absolutely recommend coming to visit this place and spending some time there wandering around - for that I would give 5 stars. The suites had intricate snow/ice carvings that were incredible to see, and the actual construction of the hotel was really interesting.
