Rooms have jetted tub, nice shower, robes, morning coffee and comfortable beds. Also lovely sitting area and overall very nice decor. I would stay here again. Very... More

This boutique hotel is modern, superbly equipped and blissfully quiet. We stayed on the 8th floor in a "studio suite" that was bigger than many apartments. A fully equipped kitchen, ironing board, free wi-fi, huge and well-appointed bathroom, and super efficient, friendly staff. The room lighting was very good, you could see to work! We didn't want to cook, but... More

My husband and I have stayed at many hotels in Victoria, but the Oswego is our new favorite. We will definitely return. The staff is warm and helpful. The lounge is cozy with a slate fireplace. We opted for a studio suite which was very well appointed. Our kitchen has granite counter tops, a 4 burner cooktop, microwave and stainless... More
