This place is a winner. The Oswego Hotel provides clean,modern rooms, some with great views of Victoria's inner harbor. Our room on the sixth floor had a kitchen with full-sized refrigerator and oven, stocked with dishes, silverware, pots and pans. The bedroom had an open air balcony - great for having morning coffee while watching seaplanes landing and taking off....

Very comfortable one bedroom unit in a hotel that is in a very good location to all I needed. Easy to walk to downtown and along the shore. Many good eating places near by. Friendly staff. The Jazz night in the Bistro was very nice.

Hotel and location were great...would recommend it to my friends. Only issue would be is that when supplying lunch for a business meeting I would recommend adding a bit more food. We ran out of food and had to request more as some didn't get any soup.

Arrived and was in a bit of a rush as I had a speaking engagement that evening. The room was so welcoming, lights were on, music was softly playing and there were chocolates and a personalized card on the table. What a welcome! I loved the room, spacious, nicely decorated and the bathroom was beautiful. I had ordered a snack...

Clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Quiet with no arrival perfumes in the room. Liked the private balcony also. Bathroom very nice and very clean . Chocolates on the pillows and minted water is a nice touch. The restaurant bistro is intimate but not crowded and we loved the Jazz on Wednesday night. The female singer had a marvelous voice. Bistro...

Great place to stay. Gluten free options are lovely in the restaurant and the rooms are enjoyable for trips of a few days. Really appreciate the suite! A small suggestion would be to improve the lighting options in the bathroom as it is very difficult to apply make-up with the current lighting.

We spent three nights here, in town to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room was very nice and quiet (except for a noisy refrigerator). The staff were friendly and helpful. We ate two meals in their Bistro (dinner & breakfast), and had good food & service both times. We got a good price on the room as part of a...

I enjoyed every aspect of my stay at the Oswego Hotel. The atmosphere was peaceful, unhurried and friendly. The room was spacious, well appointed and bright with touches that made it feel warm and welcoming. After a one night stay I felt as if I had been on vacation for two weeks!
