Did you know that the Oswego Hotel has many things to keep you occupied and entertained? We take special care to provide our guests with an experience that transcends your ordinary hotel stay.

Top 5 Things To Experience At The Oswego Hotel

While there are many things to do and see at the Oswego Hotel, this is our list of our top 5 favourite things to experience while staying with us:

  • Jazz Night

Every Thursday night from 5pm – 7pm we host our Jazz Night in Bar 500. Relax with a signature cocktail, unique southern Italian fare, and enjoy Victoria’s finest jazz performers. These nights tend to fill up weeks in advance. We recommend that you book a table online!

  • Bar 500

We wanted to create a comfortable space that would cater to our hotel guests and provide a unique and intimate experience.

With our southern Italian-inspired menu, the bright and cozy restaurant brings a distinctive dining experience to a city already famous for its restaurants. View the Bar 500 menu here, and reserve your seat for either brunch or dinner.

  • In-Room Amenities

We strive to provide our guests with a luxury stay experience. For our in-room amenities, we worked with Rocky Mountain Soap for natural shampoos, conditioners, and hand soaps. We also provide you with luxurious soaker tubs and separate showers so you can enjoy them!

  • Luxurious Beds

You deserve a comfy sleep when you’re away from home. We’ve made sure our beds are the coziest they can be,  with linens from Eden Textiles and Serta mattresses to make sure you wake up feeling refreshed. 

  • Gourmet Coffee

Victoria is known for its coffee culture. In partnership with Foglifter Coffee, we are happy to showcase one of the best local roasters. Enjoy one of their signature single-origin espressos with your breakfast in Bar 500, or relax in your room with the in-suite French press.
