We are two retired couples and first-timers to Victoria. We found The Oswego to be perfectly placed 2 blocks from the harbor and walking distance to major sightseeing venues. Staff was very nice and our double room was spacious and comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen. The room overall exceeded our expectations. Only shortfall for the room was lthe living...

We just had a week stay at the Oswego. There was a great location and view from our room. Staff was very friendly and bed comfortable...although no king size available. Got a great weekly deal at this time of year.

We stayed there for one week. The room was clean and spacious and the staffs were nice and friendly. The location of the hotel is close to many attractions and restaurants. If you want to cook by yourself then you have all the utensils as well as the dishwasher. Happy stay in this hotel.

We stayed for 3 nights over my husbands birthday. At the end of our stay my husband was provided with a birthday card and a bakery treat. An amazingly thoughtful detail! Room was clean and comfortable and they provide apples in the room and at the front desk. It's nice to have a healthy snack available in the room!

I stayed at this hotel because it was dog friendly. At the time of my stay, I was quoted a cost of $20/night for the dog. The maximum pet fee rate applies only past a full week. The location was nice, within easy walking distance of downtown, fisherman's wharf and the sea wall. Rooms were nice and big and overall...

This is our fourth time staying at this hotel. The value is exceptional. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was about the size of our condo. The rooms are modern and well kept, the staff are friendly. Being able to come "home" to the hotel and cook a meal is amazing.

The Oswego is definitely our go to hotel when we visit Victoria. The rooms are always lovely, comfortable and clean. Location is quiet and within a quick walk to downtown. Staff is usually friendly and efficient.

Thank you for being one of our loyal special guests. We really appreciate it as we know that there are many choices of hotels in Victoria.

Excellent location walking distance to downtown and inner harbour. Great secure parking! It's the little touches such as welcome personalized card, treats, turn down service, absolutely divine robes and top quality toiletries.
