The Oswego Hotel

Victoria, Vancouver Island

The hotel

A sophisticated space, The Oswego Hotel is an upmarket urban escape just a stroll from Victoria’s Inner Harbour and downtown delights. Oozing style through every inch, you can laze in the lounge with its comfy sofas and grey stone walls, unwind on the patio, or head into O Café and Bistro to drink and dine. By morning the bistro brings you breakfasts of Bond Bonds Bakery pastries, with your caffeine-fix courtesy of Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters. Then, come evening, it dishes up sharing plates of local and foraged food, sometimes served up with live piano or jazz. Of course, you could simply retreat to your room, with its gourmet kitchen dressed in stainless steel, slate, and granite — and there’s always in-room dining if you’re no Nigella.

Tastefully furnished, quiet neighbourhood, good access to walking along water or walking into downtown. First-rate hotel that has large rooms, a good restaurant (though the breakfast menu is limited, there are good options nearby)' and excellent staff.

Such a nice hotel that is so close to the inner harbour. It was our second stay at the Oswego and we will definitely stay again. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very nice & clean. I'd recommend to others.

We found the stay at Oswego comfortable and relaxed. Located close to what we knew we wanted to do and close to lovely neighborhoods that we a delight to stroll through. Our room was quiet and comfortable making it feel like home.
