We were very impressed when we visited this hotel in June. The staff were welcoming and very helpful making us feel that nothing was too much trouble. Our suite was modern, beautifully furnished with a well equipped kitchen as well as dining furniture and comfortable seating area. It was one of the few without a balcony but this did not... More

This hotel is a beautifully located place within Victoria BC....within walking distance of most destinations. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and if you book your attractions through the front desk, you get a discount. We got great recommendations to restaurants, and additional information on certain downtown interests that we hadn't thought of. The beds are... More

Let's start with the good: location to the clipper ferry terminal (short 3/4 block walk), nice location to major attractions, incredibly helpful staff, turn down service & discount on bistro, nice design eco friendly hotel (no a/c- not needed, gets cool at night); however without the a/c we slept with slider open which let all the city noise in. So... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Oswego! It was a quick and easy walk to everywhere you'd want to go in downtown Victoria. We had arrived via the Clipper Ferry from Seattle and the hotel is less than 5 minutes walking (with luggage) from the pier. The name Oswego Hotel is misleading -- it should be Oswego Suites! The...

Chose the location to avoid the touristy area, for a bit more room and for calmer crowd. We truly enjoyed our stay at studio 906. The kitchen (to our surprise) was better equipt that we thought. We didn't expect a blender (we love smoothies), a dishwasher (yeap hassle free washing up) and a huge fridge (for multiple meals) ! The... More

I highly recommend this hotel. While checking in, the staff was friendly and professional. When I asked for a dinner recommendation, she not only offered a couple of suggestions but then made a reservation for us. She also provided a map with directions to the restaurant and told us of other attractions we could see on the way. We got... More

We were really impressed by the service of the Oswego hotel that you typically get in a 5 star hotel. The rooms are very large and we enjoyed the great windows, also in the bathroom. It felt like being in a chique apartment and we were happy to go back in the evening. The walk to the centre is nice... More
