The area of the hotel is by chinatown and downtown eastside does get a bit dodgy at night and not for everyone. But its close to chinatown and walkable to everywhere. I would recommend if you can look past the area.

Unique oasis
The hotel is nice and clean and perfect for a short trip. Each room is decorated individually on an Indigenous theme and while I didn't see any others, mine (the moon suite) was gorgeous and so thoughtfully designed. The whole place felt very safe despite the less than perfect neighbourhood.

Wonderful Boutique Hotel
I loved staying at Skwachays Lodge. The room was modern and comfortable and I loved that each was individual featuring the works of a specific artist. I stayed in the Poem room and it was great. Not much of a view as it was facing the back alley but I wasn't hanging out in the room except to rest anyhow. I only wish that the room had included a small desk for my laptop, that was the only missing element. The theme and mission of the hotel to support native artists is wonderful. I loved that my stay helped to contribute to this in a small way. The staff I met there were all friendly and helpful. The area had a lot of food and drink options in easy walking distance, even after 11pm the night I checked in which was reliving since I was starved after a long day travelling in. There is even a 24/7 craft bakery, Breka, in walking distance which was delightful for a late-night sweet after dinner! I can't recommend this place enough and look forward to another stay the next time I am in Vancouver.

The rooms were great and well maintained. The hotel was very secure and whilst there is a homeless problem in the area, we had no problems from the homeless but it is a little distressing with so many on the streets in Vancouver.

Enjoy Yourself, Help Others
A lovely updated hotel. The staff is friendly and gracious. I love that my stay helped support indigenous artists! Be aware -- homeless people populate the streets in this neighborhood. If this makes you uncomfortable, you might reconsider.
