I highly recommend this hotel, if you are adventurous, like to support First Nations art, and will not be disturbed by being located very close to an extremely drugged out neighborhood (more on this below). Hotel highlights: -It's clean -The rooms are gorgeous--each one was collaboratively designed with First Nation artists and tells a story about some aspect of aboriginal... More

I stayed for 4 nights and would definitely recommend Skwachays Lodge. The combination of gallery and hotel was interesting with works of art throughout the hotel and rooms beautifully decorated in individual styles. Rooms included microwave and fridge, bathrooms were spotlessly clean, the bed was really comfortable and the bedroom included blackout curtains. After spending the day walking around the... More

My wife and I needed a place to stay for the night before leaving on our cruise the following afternoon. We had checked online months prior for hotels near the ports and an easy ride to the ship. We had searched Expedia and came across Skwachays Lodge at an affordable rate and it also showed real well online. Well, we... More

I loved the uniqueness of the room. This was my second visit so the second room was different. I liked being able to go to the sixth floor balcony area where you have a sweat. My first visit I smelt cedar. It had a sauna, sweat feel which I liked. I would recommend this as not only a place to... More

All the amenities fridge, coffee tea, etc. only downfall was the underground parking was to low for vehicle and the cable box was not mounted and... More

This hotel is beautiful! The art and free breakfast were great bonuses! The staff are extremely helpful and the beds were very comfy! If the homeless don't bother you than the location is great. Close to downtown and the heart of Vancouver!!

I work in Aboriginal Affairs, so have been looking forward to staying here. I stayed one night, for business in the City. I had seen this hotel reviewed earlier in the Spring, and knew that I wanted to stay there. The art shop and check in is beautiful, the breakfast room and food is amazing, but be sure to check...

We stayed here because it was walking distance to Rogers arena. It was very close and we were able to walk. It was close to the Gaslight district also. The room was clean and I loved the shampoo- peppermint! All the staff was friendly. My only caution would be for children and women staying alone. The street and alley were... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a month touring BC and Alaska. It is a wonderful peaceful and friendly place to be in the heart of Vancouver...just a few blocks from Gastown and within walking distance of the harbour front. We arrived late in the evening and received a very warm welcome from Adrian who was... More
