    An ICE HOTEL is a temporary hotel made up of snow, sculpted blocks of ice, and, in some cases, some steel framing. They are promoted by their sponsors and have special features for travellers who are interested in novelties and unusual environments, and thus are in the class of destination hotels. Their lobbies are often filled with ice sculptures, and food and drinks are specially chosen for the circumstances.

    All of the ice hotels are reconstructed every year, and are dependent upon constant sub-freezing temperatures during construction and operation. The walls, fixtures, and fittings are made entirely of ice or compacted snow, and are held together using a substance known as snice, which takes the place of mortar in a traditional brick-built hotel.

Presidential guests include Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Harry S Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bill Clinton. The hotel was the site of the high profile 1911 murders in which Frank Henwood shot and killed Sylvester Louis "Tony" von Phul and accidentally killed an innocent bystander, George Copeland, in the hotel's "Marble Bar." Henwood and von Phul were rivals for (or shared) the affections of Denver socialite Isabel Springer, the wife of wealthy Denver businessman and political candidate John W. Springer. The murders culminated in a series of very public trials.
      People who are into the paranormal will get more than their share of ghost stories in the hotel. One which stands out from the rest is that of Mrs. Louise Crawford Hill. She ruled Denver society from her room in the hotel, room 904, which was her home for fifteen years (1940-1955). Later, when the hotel began to offer tours, the story of her life and heartbreak over a lost love were told to the visitors. Strangely, the switchboard suddenly began to receive calls from room 904. But this was impossible, as at the time, the room was undergoing renovation and had no furnishings, lights, carpet, or telephone lines. Before long, the story was eliminated from the tour and the telephone calls from room 904 stopped coming.

The Langham also has a history of acquiring some uninvited guests during its 146 year history, reportedly having up to seven ghosts. Many of the sightings come from the time the hotel was occupied by the BBC. One of the BBC dormitory areas was frequented by a grey haired Victorian gentleman dressed in a cloak and cravat with blank staring eyes. It is said that he is the spirit of a Doctor rumoured to have killed himself after murdering his bride while they honeymooned in the old hotel. The most famous of The Langham’s ghosts is that which haunts ROOM 333. In 1973 a BBC Radio announcer, Alexander Gordon awoke suddenly in the night to see a fluorescent ball which slowly took on the shape of a man wearing Victorian evening wear. The announcer asked the ghost what it wanted and it began to float towards him, with its legs cut off some two feet below the ground, arms outstretched, eyes staring emptily. At this point the announcer got up and fled.
