My stay at the Oswego was fabulous. Bright room with windows for added fresh air. Walking distance to enjoy Dallas Road, Inner Harbor, etc.
Nicole, ca7 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
It was stressful as my 90-year-old father was in the city for an operation, but we all managed to sleep quite well. The only issue was the temperature in the room when we checked in. The fans were on, the heating was off, and a window was open!
Robert, ca1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location, room was clean and had all we needed full kitchen separate bedroom. The one thing that really stood out was the communication from staff before check in they reached out to see if we needed anything extra we brought our small dog and they had a bed and food/water dishes ready, during stay they texted to see if they could assist with anything, after checkout they contacted us to see if we were happy with stay and checkout. Amazing communication I have not experienced before in a Hotel. Would stay again for sure and have already recommend to friends and family.

The Oswego has the charm of small boutique hotel with excellent service. The suites are well appointed and perfect for extended stay and easy walking distance to scenic sights. Our dog was treated as a VIP guest with treats, dog amenities and walking routes. We have been repeat visitors to the hotel and each stay had been a wonderful experience.

Great place the entire family including the dog.
Hotel was great ! We had a dog and they were super nice about it. Water bowl, food bowl and a bed was available for our dog when we arrived. Staff were ALL super friendly and helpful! Everything else in the hotel was amazing, expect the shower head . Water pressure on the shower head was very weak. The photos online are exactly how the room looked like. On a note, parking is $17.50 a night . They say there’s parking on the street however, it’s not free on the weekdays just weekend because it’s right downtown.

Great property
The staff were friendly and welcoming, and my room was clean and well appointed. The kitchenette was so well equipped that I was able to prepare 6 different freezer meals for my daughter at UVIC. The location is quiet and eady to access. I will definitely stay here again.
