The oswego hotel is a quaint, modern boutique hotel. It literally felt like our home. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook a meal. There's also a thrifty foods a few blocks away. The rooms were clean and well managed. The surrounding area was quiet and comfortable even though we were steps from downtown. The parking... More

This hotel is moments away from Victoria's inner harbour, walking distance to the Parliament buildings and the city centre. We had a one bedroom suite with a full kitchen and views of the lovely James Bay neighbourhood. Ordered room service one night (really good value and tasted great) and visited the hotel restaurant the second night (lovely staff and great... More

When we booked this hotel on Trip Advisor, I was very happy with the price and when we walked into our room we were very surprised at the sheer luxury and beauty of our room. The hotel staff and the surroundings were more like a B&B. We walked to the harbor and on the way back stopped in an eclectic... More

Perfect location 2 blocks from ferries and near the downtown attractions. Very comfortable. We had a full kitchen. Staff is great, as is the restaurant. We took the evening bus tour to Butchart Gardens; while the official pick-up/drop- off is the Empress Hotel, the driver dropped us off at the Oswego, as it's on the way to where he parks... More

This was our first trip to Victoria. The Oswego hotel was quiet and with being outside all day we slept like a log. It was so close to everything, we didn't need to take any transportation but our feet! All the staff was so friendly and instantly willing to help, but we got to know the front desk staff and...

The Oswego is a smaller newer hotel in the down town of Victoria. Tucked in a few blocks from the Harbour and Parliment buildings. Makes this a great starting place to walk or get easily around the city. Very clean modern rooms, which is hard to find downtown. There are many restaurants in the area. We will definetly be going...

I just spent an entire month at the Oswego. The hotel exceeded my expectations in every respect. The room was spacious and very comfortable. In-room dining was tasty with very prompt service. Central location in James Bay is unbeatable. Will definitely return! Thank you Oswego Staff.

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
