I stayed at the Oswego Hotel for two nights during a visit to Victoria (I booked the hotel through the Victoria Clipper ferry service which I think was a good deal). The hotel is modern and luxurious. My room had kitchen facilities included that I did not use; the bathroom had a deep soaking tub and a separate shower. The... More

We were told by Seattle Clipper personnel that we could have a choice of this hotel for our package deal with them. There was a surcharge for choosing this hotel over the others, but we decided, based on the Clipper rep's strong recommendation, that we try it. And are we glad we did! I was shocked at how classy the... More

My husband and I stayed at The Oswego Hotel for four nights in July and had a most pleasant experience . It's a beautiful hotel,the staff are more then helpful and it's in an excellent location. We would definitely recommend it.It's just a few minutes walk from the Clipper Terminal and a short walk to Fisherman's wharf and downtown.

This was our second stay at Oswego in a Premium 1-bedroom suite (room 908). We were on the 9th floor which was perfect as it was quiet, and nice and breezy for the hot weather. The room was spotless (as it was the last time we were there) and the hotel staff was friendly, accommodating, polite, and extremely helpful. They... More

We stayed here just for 1 night and on the whole enjoyed it. The room (309) was a 2 bed roomed suite. Everything we needed was there, except Aircon. This seems to be a Canadian disease! Private secure parking parking is supplied for $15, which is a little steep. Free and efficient wifi was also supplied. All staff encountered were... More

Thank you for staying with us. The climate that we have in Victoria does not normally warrant air conditioning. All suites have ceiling fans and windows can be opened. Many of our guests find that the rooms cool down considerably once the windows are opened. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to have the pleasure of... More

We enjoyed our 3 day stay at the OSWEGO very much. Room 603. Very nice and well accomodated room very close to the Waterfront. The breakfast (not included) was nice and tasteful. The room had a kitchenette and was fully equiped. The bathroom was large and had seperated shower and bathtub. Lots of space. Beautiful.

What we liked about this hotel was its location. It is at a walking distance of the Parliament building and Empress Hotel (Government Street). It is also close to the famous Beacon Hill Park and the Dallas road waterfront trail. We had a very comfortable king size bed and nice kitchenette (well furnished). We also had a balcony and the...

We have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is situated in the centre of Victoria, in a quiet street. The breakfast and coffee are delicious and the staff is very friendly!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. There are many hotels in Victoria without air conditioning. We find that with our local climate it does not normally get to hot - our recent heatwave would challenge that theory. All of our suites have ceiling fans and additional fans... More

The hotel was conveniently located between ferries, Fisherman's wharf and harbor area. Everywhere was within easy walking distance. Our suite felt more like an apartment than a mere room. The suite was beautifully decorated and had full amenities. We will stay there again.
