Overall I thought the hotel was awesome. Unfortunately the location was scary. There were a lot of drug addicts in the alley way next to the hotel and needles laying around (right outside the parking garage).

My wife and I stayed at the Skwachays Lodge in September 2017. Everyone mentions the location and it does have some rough looking characters out on the street but nobody bothered us. The hotel has a quaint breakfast tea/coffee sweet bread doughnut type things fruit...More
Visited Vancouver for a concert (Tom Petty...RIP). This hotel is only a short walk away from both Rogers and BC Place. It is also convenient for what's left of Chinatown, for the hop-on, hop-off bus and Gastown. The room was a bit small but comfortable...More
Love the authentic Aboriginal art vibe of Skwachàys Lodge, and talk about location! It’s right at the Chinatown Gate, 4 blocks from Gastown and only 3 km from Stanley Park. So impressed with the works in the gallery (both beautiful and surprisingly affordable!!). Be sure...More
We really liked the big room we had at the Skwachays Hotel. We also loved the fact that they do something back for the aboriginal community, it really is a social enterprise. The breakfast was not that big, but really nice.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
It is a easy walk to the cruise terminal approx. 15 - 20 minutes via Gastown. Mostly flat with a slight hill near the end. Other option would include the train with Stadium/Chinatown station only a few minutes away... More

Yes you can have a smudge room and sweat lodge experience - there is a cost to this . The best thing to do is to send a email to the hotel and find out what current rates are. If there are only 2 of you they maybe able to put you with others which reduces the cost.
I stayed there for 3 nights and September and loved the hotel.
