It is apparent that the builders of the Oswego care about good architecture - it shows in the fine details both inside and out. Our family (60-something parents with 20-something daughter and partner in a 2-bedroom suite) felt very comfortable and at home. The hotel is extremely well-located, staff are friendly & helpful, it is immaculately maintained and we would...

We stayed at the Oswego for one week; the price, since we booked quite early, was great. Our room was on the 9th floor, which gave us a south exposure and we could see the float planes coming and going, as well as the ferries and other sea-going craft. There was also a balcony, but it was so intemperate when...

Great hotel. It has a condo feel and has a full kitchen to include a oven and dishwasher. Great French press too. Upon arrival, the hotel has two mint waters beside the bed with chocolates and two robes. I believe each suite has a balcony. We had views of the parliament building. Very nice. Great walking distance to the warf...

We loved our recent stay at the Oswego. It is our very favourite hotel in Victoria due to its central walkable location, modern urban style, quality service, and comfortable and bright 2-bedroom suites -- all with a view. The service is excellent.

Nice to have a suite. Felt like being in a modern apartment. Very clean and they go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. Located in James Bay and a short walk to both downtown and Beacon Hill Park.

The Oswego fit our needs perfectly. Two bedrooms and two baths to accommodate family and a well equipped kitchen. Within walking distance of the inner harbour and downtown shops and restaurants. Loved being able to enjoy the street scene and a glass of wine from our balcony.

A very nice place. Sophisticated design with friendly and helpful staff very clean. We didn't use the kitchenette on this visit but might well another time as it seems very well equipped. The bistro served a good charcuterie plate and breakfast was excellent with a strong emphasis on local providers.
