Nestled on the banks of the Fox River in downtown Oshkosh, lies the beautiful Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center. The majority of the hotel’s guest rooms provide a beautiful view of two of the community’s greatest assets; the Fox River and Lake Winnebago. Enjoy direct access to the Riverwalk which connects to the popular Wiouwash Trail. Perfect for walking, jogging or biking. The hotel’s convenient downtown location provides easy access to dining and entertainment venues, shops, the Leach Amphitheater and the Grand Opera House, all within walking distance. Experience the Ground Round at River’s Edge Bar and Grill providing casual dining and cocktails. This fun filled lounge and eatery features seasonal dining on the riverside patio, large windows that overlook the water, private dining and nightly specials. Bring your boat and tie up along one of the many piers located right in front of the hotel. The 176 room, full-service hotel features an indoor pool, whirlpool, fitness center, game room, and business center. Weddings and conference attendees enjoy the convenience of the sky walk which connects to the Oshkosh Convention Center. The hotel and convention center, combined, provide over 25,000 sq. ft. of meeting space with the flexibility of 19 breakout rooms. Some meeting rooms provide beautiful views of the Fox River. The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is a short one mile away. There is no other choice when looking for a place to relax, meet or socialize in Oshkosh. The hotel is located just minutes from E.A.A., home of the nation's largest airshow and popular aeronautics museum. Oshkosh is known as “Wisconsin’s Event City” and our hotel is often in the heart of the activity. The hotel is just the right place for any occasion!

Great stay on the river. Excellent and friendly/ helpful staff. Rooms were perfect size and well maintained. Pool and fitness room were both open which was a pleasant surprise. Coffee service in the room was Starbucks so we were very happy to see that!

Hotel's Favourite
Weekend getaway with my love! First time in Oshkosh. We came to see a Star Wars toy exhibit at the Public Museum. We were looking for a room with a hot tub and fireplace and this one was perfect. It is located in the heart of downtown. We had a view of the beautiful (frozen) Fox River. I bet it's great in the summer! The suite was very spacious. Dining table, pull out sofa, desk, a couple more chairs. Then in the bedroom, a comfortable king size bed, fireplace, and hot tub for two! Large walk in shower in the bathroom. Staff was very friendly, professional, and extremely helpful! Room was very clean. We will definitely stay again.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for providing excellent, detailed comments about your visit. My team and I are so very pleased to learn we met your 100% satisfaction! I am glad the Whirlpool/Fireplace suite met your every expectation and that you enjoyed the view of the river from your room. To your point, yes, it is great in the summer and you have the added feature of being able to dine, have a cocktail on our patio and enjoy the river walk. Thank you for noting the room as being clean. Though cleanliness is a simple expectation, our housekeeping team works hard to achieve that goal and puts forth every effort to meet the pandemic protocols of Best Western's signature "We Care Clean" program. We appreciate you endorsing our hotel and look forward to your return visit. We will appreciate the pleasure of serving you again!

What seemed like a great looking room was filled with low maintenance and lack of service. Upon entering my room, when I took off my shoes I felt a wet spot on my sock immediately. I looked down and there was a circular wet spot on the ground at the foot of the bed so my initial response was to look up to maybe see where the mystery wet spot could be coming from. I couldn't tell but it looked as though there could have been a leek from the ceiling dripping down on the floor. The ceiling was bowing a bit and it was hard not to ignore the constant running toilet in the bathroom. Yeah, had to deal with a running toilet all night and it wasn't the type where you could just flush it or jiggle the handle to make it stop. I suspect it played a part on the wet spot on the floor but I am no expert by any means. And lastly, when I went to go watch television I used the remote to turn on the TV. However, the volume button seemed to work but the channel buttons did not so I only had one channel for viewing pleasure. That was a non-luxury spent hotel experience that could have been much better.

I appreciate and thank you for the time you took to share your comments about your stay. Our goal is to earn your loyalty as a return customer. I regret there were several detractors that resulted in a negative impact on your visit. Please accept my personal apology. Considering your TripAdvisor username is not the guest name used to book your reservation, I am left to make some assumptions as to who you are and what room you stayed in. After questioning front desk team members, I believe I have determined this information. The number of issues you reported is very non-typical for our hotel. However, it is your personal experience that is most important to me. In working to maintain our reputation and meet the expectations of our guests, we strive to address issues as we are made aware. We hope to be provided the opportunity to address a guest issue prior to the guest’s departure so that it is not an ongoing concern throughout the stay. I regret these issues were only shared with us the morning of your departure. Both the TV remote and toilet were easily resolvable issues had they been brought to our attention. The wet spot on the floor was from spot-cleaning that housekeeping completed just prior to your arrival. I agree the small wet spot should have been dried prior to checking you into the room. I personally inspected the ceiling in the room where you stayed. There were no water or drip spots from the ceiling nor is the ceiling “bowing” in any manner whatsoever. We strive to be proactive for the comfort of our guests. There is nothing for us to gain if we do not work toward the goal of addressing our guests concerns as we are made aware. I hope by addressing your comments I can improve your faith in us and the Best Western brand as we continue to make improvements for our guests.

Our house got painted so we stayed here instead of sleeping in a cluttered bedroom. Great check in, nice people, great bed. We will for sure stay here again. The only downside was that the sheets were scratchy, maybe too much bleach, and so that can be improved upon. I also wish there had been free bottled water for each guest before charging for water.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us while your house was going through a painting project. Of the many hotel choices in Oshkosh, we are pleased you chose to stay on the waterfront! I am pleased to see the interactions you had with members of our team contributed to the enjoyment of your visit and that the bed was very comfortable. It is important that our guests get a good night's rest. However, I am sorry the sheets were perceived as being scratchy. I will look into this in greater detail to see what in our laundering process might have impacted this. I appreciate your comments about the bottle water. The collective comments of our guests often determine our future operational procedures. Thank you again for staying with us and for sharing your comments.

I took my husband away for his birthday. We stayed at the Best Western and ate at the Ground Round. We had a wonderful time. The hotel was clean and quiet. The staff was helpful and courteous. We would definitely stay here again. It was close to everything we wanted to do: EAA, outlet mall, riverwalk, Menomonee Park.
