The Hotel Del Coronado.

Forget free wifi or yoga classes, it looks like the hot hotel amenity for winter is a private ice rink. Hotels all over are going all Ice Capades and putting up rinks—even if they are in a warm-weather locales. So you Michelle Kwans and Brian Boitanos can lace up your skates and practice your double axel—or if you're like us, teeter and fall on your booties—even when you're traveling.

Find out where you can sleep and skate this holiday after the jump.

Boston's Colonnade Hotel is totally winning us over with their cute promotions based on what's happening in the world. Like the Bulls and Bears Package where room rates depend on how the Dow Jones did that day.

Now the hotel has introduced the Frosty Fridays weekend package where your Friday room rate is as much as the temperature at 5pm.

Now through March 31, 2009, guests reserving the two-night Frosty Fridays weekend package will pay only the outside temperature on Friday night, based on the 5:00 p.m. reading by the National Weather Service, for their room. If the temperature is 19 degrees on Friday night, guests pay $19 for their Friday night stay and a special rate of $295 for Saturday night.

The package sets you up in a double occupancy room with two tickets to either the Old Town Trolley Tour or admission and skating rentals at The Boston Common Frog Pond Skating Rink. Also included is hot chocolate for two at Brasserie JO and overnight parking. Keep your fingers crossed that Beantown has especially cold Fridays this winter.
