We stayed at this property last year and I thought I had written a review. The service was great from emails phone calls to check in. In my view this property prides itself in customer satisfaction. We stayed for 3 days on the 9th floor. We are coming back again this year 2024 . i have already chatted with the Hotel and excellent staff, I will be sure to share our experience after the next stay. We know it will be great.

Hotel's Favourite
We chose to return to the Oswego hotel for 18 nights while visiting our son who lives in Victoria. Being situated in a central location with guest parking for our hired car it's ideal. For such a long stay, eating out every day could be expensive so having a full kitchen and supermarkets nearby kept the cost down. A coin operated guest laundry was a must and I never had to wait, I only saw one other person in there. When we ate in the restaurant a few times we found the food and service excellent. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly, welcoming and super helpful at all times. We would definitely recommend The Oswego to anyone visiting Victoria and will no doubt be back ourselves.

The Oswego is a perfect place to stay in Victoria. Walking distance to downtown and area, underground parking and the suites are lovely. The staff are exceptional and so efficient and friendly... you always feel welcome, and every inquiry is addressed quickly. We have stayed many times and never had a problem. Highly recommended.

The location was perfect meeting friends at Ogden Cruise Ship Terminal. The suite if needed / weather etc allowed us to have our friends visit with us but we ended up sitting in their lounge/restaurant. Easy walk to and from Ogden Point. Meal fabulous at the hotel restaurant. Walkable later to downtown Victoria/ waterfront, Parliament buildings for a tour, China Town, Bear and Joey’s for brunch or even The Empress for tea while leaving the car parked safely locked and underground! Excellent suite, clean and quiet! Bed was so comfortable! Quiet area with a combination of smaller hotels and residential. We will return when coming back to Victoria. We’re Expedia Members and so we had some bonus credits and VIP / Gold status which gave us a huge discount and ability to use our points! Excellent staff and food. It was perfect for our visit to Victoria!

Thank you for this incrediable feedback, patriciae648! We are located in the beautiful, James Bay, a really wonderful and walkable area in Victoria. It is wonderful to see that you took full advantage! I am so glad to hear that you had a positive Expedia. We are aiming to encourage more direct bookings and are able to pricematch any rates you see online (maybe even, do a little better!). It was such a pleasure to host you and we hope to see you again soon!

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Victoria. Well appointed and constructed. Staff is competent and very friendly and accommodating. Dogs are welcome. Views are good from some floors/rooms, and ok otherwise. Kitchens are very well equipped. Beds are comfortable. Pillows a little thick. As we were checking out we booked two more stays - of one week and two weeks.

Thank you for your kind words, Tedr36! We love dogs here at the Oswego, and do our best to make sure everyone feels at home! Being a full suite property every one of our suites have a kitchen or kitchenette with all the utensils you would need to cook and dine in the suite. If anything is missing we can also provide a lot of items upon request. We cannot wait to welcome you back!

The best location and best space and best view ! I was very impressed and will definitely be back. We walked to restaurants and we enjoyed how much space there was in the suite. I loved the grocery store close by so we could enjoy some food and snacks in our suite on our own time. The bathroom was so so spacious too. Great for two people to spread out and get ready. The breakfast table with the view was my favourite :) the coffee could have been better to enjoy the view with but honestly well worth the choice at Oswego

Dear 11jangk, thank you for taking the time to share your lovely experience! We are so lucky to be tucked away in the perfect location in James Bay; close to everything but still in a quiet residential area. We are also a full suite property, so every one of our rooms has a kitchen or kitchenette, and a four-piece bathroom. It was such a pleasure to host you throughout your time in Victoria and we hope to see you again soon!
