SFGate listed a few creative and wacky hotels to check out, including the Le Monastère des Augustines and the Hôtel de Glace.

Le Monastère des Augustines or The Augustine Monastery is a 65-room luxury hotel, retreat, and wellness center, which used to be a monastery-hospital established by nuns. It offers guests rejuvenating and healing services such as aromatherapy, massage, yoga, meditation and more.

Hôtel de Glace or Ice Hotel is the most unusual hotel in Quebec City placed at the Valcartier Vacation Village entertainment complex.
