A bit outside my typical budget, but with the blessings of my manager I made the reservation. So, lets go with...

This is one of the best properties that I've stayed at. It is tucked away a couple blocks from the main attractions but still very much within walking distance. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean and well appointed. I stayed in a one bedroom suite and it was perfect for an extended stay. If I could...

Nice hotel near the Clipper terminal. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. Nicely and beautifully updated. Full kitchen. No king bed tho. Big tub. Would definitely stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Oswego Hotel for two nights as our one-year anniversary celebration. We booked through BC Ferries Vacation and were both impressed by the price but skeptical of the quality(~$200 for a two night stay per person including ferry trip). However when we arrived at the hotel we were thrilled because it looked just as good...

My family and I had to stay in this fine hotel during one of my visits to see my grandchildren because their house was flooded. The Oswego staff were friendly and very accommodating. Having to leave home with two young kids was quite disruptive but the staff did everything they could to have things go smoothly. This hotel has a...

Thank you for staying with us during this very emotional and stressful time. We do work with many insurance companies who find that the Oswego is ideal for their clients when unexpected situations arise and they need to stay elsewhere than their homes. I am glad that the team and the hotel provided you with a wonderful stay and we...

I really enjoy staying at the Oswego Hotel and have been visiting this boutique hotel for three years. I appreciate the friendly, outgoing staff, the convenience of walking into the city centre and the comfortable beds and soaker tubs. Wednesday night Jazz is always a treat and dinner usually features fresh, local fare. I recommend their Bombay martinis with extra...

The hotel stay itself was great. Room and staff were wonderful. Service was excellent. However, I ordered room service for breakfast twice and was underwhelmed both times. The dishes were not particularly well thought out to begin with, and then the execution left something to be further desired. Cold biscuits with packaged peanut butter and just a few pieces of...
