Took the Clipper from Seattle and this hotel is an easy walk from the dock, even with luggage. Room was lovely, even had a fully stocked kitchen which was a pleasant surprise. Bathroom was top notch, great terry robes and quality soaps, shampoos, etc. Easy stroll to the downtown waterfront area, restaurants, etc. The staff is very helpful with suggestions...

Situated in an ideal setting for the harbour front and yet sufficiently quiet enough, not hear the hustle and bustle of all that goes around in the area. The hotel is very well appointed and staff are very professional and cheerful. I would have say for the money one could not expect much better. The room we had was at...

What an amazing hotel. Incredibly affordable rates give you even more incredible rooms. Loved how quiet the neighborhood was, yet still had immediate access to downtown Vic. Truly a great place to stay.

My husband and I took the Clipper from Seattle to Victoria. Being car-free for our visit, we booked a room at the Oswego because it was near the dock and looked like a interesting boutique hotel. We arrived at about 11 am off the boat and Caroline at the front desk was really helpful--letting us know where nearby restaurants were...

This hotel was perfect. A five minute walk to Inner Harbour makes this accommodation extremely desirable. The one bedroom suite has a beautiful fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable spacious sitting area with a balcony. The staff were accommodating and extremely friendly. This is my new favourite hotel in Victoria.

Great Boutique hotel just minutes from the Clipper dock just off the main road. Set in a neighborhood, you did not get the noise from the roadway. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
