A Vancouver Boutique Hotel that is Making a Difference

August 24th, 2020

Dear Valued Guest,

On behalf of the Skwachàys Lodge and Gallery team, it is with great pleasure to announce that we are officially re-opened!

We are accepting room reservations for all future dates and are following a carefully crafted COVID-19 safety plan. Your health and safety as one of our guests is our highest priority. We have installed hand sanitizer stations at the entry of the Gallery, at each guest room floor, and have masks available for guests and visitors upon entry. We are practicing social distancing measures and all touch points throughout the property are consistently cleaned and maintained. Due to the small size of the property, our personalized service and attention to detail will ensure you are taken care of every step of the way.

If you have any questions or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your continued support and we are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Mark Finn

General Manager


Skwachàys Lodge is an extraordinary boutique hotel and Canada’s first Indigenous arts hotel. Located in the heart of Vancouver’s historic downtown, this stunning addition to the local urban landscape offers guests an authentic Indigenous experience while providing the highest quality personalized service. We are proud to be a social enterprise, and the income generated from your visit goes directly into the hands of those in need such as our 24 indigenous artists in residence. The artists are living on the premises on a three year term and we provide them with not only accommodation but also a full artist studio and a curated program so that after they complete the program, they can excel on their own in any future endeavours.



Each room is uniquely designed by six of Vancouver’s top hotel designers partnered with six Indigenous artists who have created 18 stunning art installations.
