My partner wanted to surprise me on our trip to Victoria and booked a "standard suite". Safe to say given my ranking above that the place was something much more than "standard". After the first night I said to her "if only the closets were a little bigger, I'd say lets move here and have this be our condo". The... More

Great Hotel, great location, great service, walking distance to harbour, float planes, parliament. All good, free wifi though the signal weak and slow. But you can plug your laptop directly in for better signal. Bonus comfy bathrobes, free trade coffee for the french press.

This place is incredible. It is close to the ferry dock and a short walk to Government Street and all downtown Victoria has to offer. It is reasonably priced and exceeds all my expectations. The staff is friendly and efficient. Every thing about The Oswego exceeds our expectations from the apples left for us to enjoy in the beautiful bowl... More

We travelled to Victoria to attend a wedding and stayed three nights at the Oswego. We arrived at midnight on the airport shuttle bus and were upgraded to a one bedroom suite -- I guess the studio suites were full. Great because, with extra space, our room become a meeting place for other family staying at the hotel. This suite... More

Before you book this hotel, I thought I would pass on some information you might need.... We didn't actually stay here, we ended up cancelling after the following... We booked two 2 bedroom suites at this hotel, and those also booking this must know that the hotel will put an extra $500 incidental fee on top of the room charge.... More

My wife and I spent a night here in October, 2014. Staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. Room (1 BR suite) was clean, comfortable. Balcony a plus. Food and bar were very good to excellent. Some wines on menu were not available. Hotel has a very comfortable ambience, low key, tasteful. We enjoyed the free jazz on Wed night with... More

I travel to Victoria several times a year for work and thought I'd try this hotel out. Wow, am I ever glad I did! It's beautiful! It's conveniently located in James Bay, very close to downtown, but in a quiet area. It's more like a residence or apartment than a hotel... the room was spacious, beautifully decorated and had all... More

This is a new modern, quiet, comfortable place to stay with a group or large family. They have two bedroom suites with a living area and kitchenette, plus two bathrooms. Everything is up to date and clean. Nice neighborhood, good location- within walking distance to restaurants, BC museum, waterfront, etc. Good customer service. Reasonably priced. The only downside was breakfast... More
