Great Location and views. Easy walk to Inner Harbour and tourist sites. Also easy exploring to Beacon Hill Park and nearby James Bay village for groceries and coffee. Will stay again on our next visit to Victoria!

The Oswego is a wonderful hotel that is perfectly situated in one of the best cities in the world. You can walk to everything! Friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are a good size and the full kitchens are great for making everything from breakfast to a full meal.

We always enjoy staying here have stayed many times and it's always consistently good. It's a nice part of downtown Victoria without being in urban sprawl. Self catering option a bonus and views and location are great . We'll be back.

My wife and I stayed in the Oswego on a trip to Victoria for 1 week. The hotel is well located just west of the Legislative building. We could walk anywhere downtown. The 1 bedroom apartment was well laid out, well equipped and comfortable. There could have been more clothes hanger, next time I will bring some of my own....
