Well, this is pretty cool: Skwachàys Lodge

Skwachàys Lodge and Residence at 31 West Pender Street in Vancouver houses a fair trade gallery, boutique hotel and an urban Aboriginal artist residence. Owned and operated by the Vancouver Native Housing Society (VNHS), the facility provides 24 shelter rate apartments for Aboriginal people at risk of homelessness, and two social enterprises that support the Society’s mission and financial sustainability. The process started when Dave selected six Aboriginal artists to each create a vision and theme for three hotel suites. Then six interior design firms graciously donated their services to transform the artists’ visions into functional hotel suites.

I love so many things about the concept behind this hotel. You can see a CBC news story on it here.
