10.0 Wonderful
Spacious rooms with peek a boo views of the harbor. Quick walk to the ferry and all the sights downtown. Staff is super friendly. Rooms are spacious. And the balcony was a nice treat on a summer evening to watch the Parliament building light up.
5.4 Fair
Cons:Room was not ready when we arrived , bedding ex sheets and duvet were horrible
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:On the edge of the James Bay neighborhood, the Oswego is in walking distance to the Parliament, downtown, Chinatown and all the ferry and seaplane services in the inner harbor. Our family of four were very comfortable in the 1BR premium suite. The bistro is great for a cocktail with locals or a morning coffee. The concierge will hold your bags while you walk and shop if you’ve got a late clipper departure. We’ll be back!
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:A comfortable suite is much better value for the money than a single room. Very clean and well decorated with neutral colours, granite counter... way better than a stark white wall. Bed was comfortable. Location is great, centrally located but not a crazy busy/noisy street. Great walking around James Bay and Fisherman's Wharf. I really, REALLY like that they take dogs too. The suite was super clean, no sign of dogs from other people which I liked (even though I have a dog)!
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:I didn't like how in the morning I tried calling and calling but no one answered as I had to catch a 7am and was told the night before someone would be there all night but when I called at least 9 times no one picked up until 5:50 am and all I wanted to do was check out and leave
