Reviewed 18 February 2012

We stayed here in May of 2011. Canada has a big holiday on the weekend we were there. The Oswego is close to everything in downtown Victoria. The rooms are very clean, modern, and "spa-like". The Murphy bed wasn't the greatest, but it was much better than the bed on Orca's Island. We would probably get one of the rooms with a real bed next time. We had breakfast in the hotel, and it was very nice. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to our friends.

Thank you for posting a review about your stay with us last Spring.

We hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Oswego soon so that you can enjoy one of our One Bedroom suites which are more spacious than a studio suite and not a murphy bed in sight.

Please let me know directly when you will be returning.

Had a lovely experience at the Oswego. The 1br suite was reasonably priced and very nice. Nice view and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for something facing the back if you hate noise. There is a road out front and if you are sensit...

Ate Christmas Dinner at the Oswego Hotel, did not stay there. The choice for Christmas Dinner was turkey with all the trimmings or salmon and at a very reasonable price, I think it was $40 for the 3 course meal. I had the salmon, my dinner partner the turkey. I tried both and both were made exactly how you would expect either to be. I had creme brule for dessert and a nice port and was equally satidfied.

The service was pleasent and professional and the atmoshpere very nice, easily found parking seeing as it was a holiday but perhaps may be a challange through out regular business hours. Only negative I'd have to give is that we were seated near a wall of California shutters which, really needed some dusting.

Left with a good feeling, and would go back again!

Room Tip: Ask for window or fireplace side.

What a great find this was. Friendly and accommodating staff, very comfortable, convenient, and terrific food just downstairs. The full kitchen was also wonderful for a night in after travelling for 2 weeks.

Pros:
I traveled with 3 other girlfriends and it was one of a few places we could find in Victoria w/in walking distance from the Clipper w/ a 2 bedroom suite. The price for the suite was very reasonable and the suite and hotel were very modern. We enjoyed the suite so much that we ended up staying in on our first night and ordered room service (also very reasonable). The suite had everything we could need, including a french press! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Location to the Clipper is just 2 blocks away. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others traveling to Victoria.

Cons:
It is a little bit of a hike to downtown Victoria, just about a 15 min walk, but if it's raining and you've been walking around all day, we opted for cabs for some of our trips to and from the hotel (cabs were reasonable, about $5). The walls were a little thin, we were woken up at 7:30 am on our last morning from dogs barking in the room next to ours. They have a decent cd/radio player that has a function to plug in your iPod, but no cable to plug it in with.
