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.

I stayed for the weekend after bringing my daughter to school. Everything about the property was welcoming and I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. The rooms were clean and well appointed, and the location was quiet and safe.

The hotel is really good and well located. It’s a block from the beautiful Parliament. Our room was big and modern. The staff was nice. Our bathroom was huge, with a bathtub and a shower. The bad side was: Our room was really dusty and it made my husband to have breathing troubles.
