Reviewed 16 March 2016

We stayed for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and convenience of our room. I had the lamb in the restaurant which was scrumptious, and the room service was fast and the food breakfast was so very good. Respectful, polite service added to our overall experience. The location is quiet, yet within walking distance to attractions. The Oswego Hotel...

My husband and I spent 7 nights in the Oswego Hotel -- in a lovely studio suite. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean and modern. We had our bicycles and used the parkade lock up facility which was very convenient. Hotel is within easy walking distance of waterfront and downtown and is situated so that driving...

The title says it all... all the comforts of home can be found in Oswego Hotel! What made our vacation a great experience was being able to bring along our pet dog with us. We also met other hotel guests who brought their dogs with them, while on our walks in the neighbourhood. It helped that our dog is crate-trained...

My wife and I just came back from a wonderful weekend in Victoria. This was our second visit to the Oswego and couldn't recommend it more highly. The rooms are nicely appointed, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the location is fantastic. It's a short walk to the harbor, Fisherman's Wharf, shopping on Government Street, or the BC Museum....

Beautiful hotel - elegant and sophisticated without being pretentious. Oh, and there's fabulous live jazz on a Wednesday night! Only drawback is that there is no pool, although they offer in-room spa services.

We enjoyed the suite especially the full-sized kitchen that enabled us to cook many of our own meals and the view from the windows was beautiful especially the lighted parliamentary building. From the hotel you could easily walk to the harbour, the museum, the Imax Theatre, the provincial legislature an the busses were accessible to take you anywhere else you...

Location is everything--this place has it. Each unit is privately owned, so all decor is different. We had a super room on the 4th floor, corner unit with a great view. 1 bedroom. Well appointed room, comfy bed, full kitchen. Nice touch with welcoming truffles and turn down with chocolates at night. They also left a glass of water with...

Thank you for staying with us and we are so pleased that the Oswego exceeded your expectations.

I travel often for business. This hotel is one on the BEST I've stayed at. Staff was amazing. It was super clean. There is turn down service. The service was amazing. I knew nothing about Victoria prior to coming here. And it couldn't be in a better location. I got an amazing deal online. But the rack rate is reasonable.

The staff was very freindly and our room was beautiful. Especially the bathroom! If we hadn't visited in February I think the view would have been amazing - too rainy and foggy. I recommend going offsite for dining. The food was not great.
