We have stayed at this wonderful hotel on two occasions, first time in a one bedroom and second in a two bedroom. They were well appointed, very conveniently appointed and service was superb. They are very pet friendly, but the rooms were immaculate both times. If you want a view of the harbor, this is not the hotel for you.... More

Working in the industry myself I had done some homework, had an idea of what to expect, and they proceeded to exceed those expectations. Rooms were richly appointed, beds were very comfortable, but most of all there was a good amount of staff on hand who were all extremely professional and friendly. Will absolutely recommend to anyone going to Victoria.... More

We have been staying at the Oswego 4 days per week for the past 3 months and have had a great experience here. The suites are equipped with a functioning kitchen, free wifi, the staff is friendly and the location is central to downtown. It's everything we need.

We have just left after a 6 night stay--could have stayed longer in our spacious studio suite! We loved the good location (just a bit out of the tourist trap, and everything is close by in Victoria); contemporary decor, commitment to great contemporary art (and dogs); well-equipped kitchen (good sharp knives, always a good sign, french press for coffee); great...

Wonderful hotel! Great location on quiet street but close to harbor. Stayed 4 nights in 1 bedroom. Spacious with extremely well-equipped kitchen with everything we needed to cook as well as clean up. We were able to get fresh fish from the wharf and cook it that night. Staff very helpful and accomodating. Room wasn't ready at 3:30 so they... More

I love the Oswego!! I've stayed in the studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites for business and family get-aways and will never stay anywhere else in Victoria. Last week I booked a one-bedroom suite for my parents as my dad had some medical appointments in Victoria. The Oswego actually offers a discount if you are visiting for medical reasons. The care...

We stayed at this hotel through an overnight trip with the Victoria Clipper. We arrived a bit early to check our bags in, but they had a room available for us. The front desk employees were very kind and offered up loads of helpful information. Everything was clean and crisp. Our room was very tidy and had everything we needed... More

The Oswego Hotel was a good experience. When we arrived our room was not ready so they gave us gave us drinks at no charge and then upgraded our room. The rooms and hotel was very clean and updated. My only downer would be no free breakfast like most places. You do have a full kitchen in your room so... More

A few fresh apples, French press in-room coffee and fresh cream in the fridge (not to mention the lovely Victoria Art Gallery book on the coffee table) .... just a few reasons to stay in this great Boutique Hotel.
