A Vancouver Boutique Hotel that is Making a Difference

June 2020

Dear Valued Guest,

Following the emergence of COVID-19, our world changed at lightning speed with an impact felt by almost every industry and everyone living and working around the globe. At Skwachàys Lodge, we have continued to respond quickly and thoughtfully to meet our health and safety commitment to guests, team members, and communities.

The health and safety of our guests and team is our highest priority. To ensure that you can shop, book and stay with confidence we have elevated our existing high standards of hygiene and cleanliness procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We have recently re-opened the Gallery to accommodate our customers and friends. Our enhanced protocols set limits for the number of guests to prevent overcrowding and to help maintain physical distancing. We have also arranged the gallery in such a way that it will allow our customers to be immersed in the full gallery experience.

The Hotel will re-open on August 15th, 2020. Please know we are counting the days until your arrival, and with the utmost confidence, we can promise the health and safety of our guests and team members is our highest priority.

We appreciate your cooperation as we continue to work hard look forward to seeing all our guests and friends from Vancouver and beyond.
