The Oswego Hotel, about a half hour’s drive from the airport, is a chic boutique hotel in downtown Victoria, near the Inner Harbour. Stay in smart open concept studio suite that comes with well-furnished sleeping, living and dining areas and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Mood lighting, warm earth tones and a private patio add to the experience. For those with furry travel companions, note that this is a pet-friendly accommodation. Settle down with a book on your private patio or gaze at the panoramic city views and natural surroundings before you, while enjoying a mug of coffee. After a hearty breakfast, set out to explore the city’s attractions. Make the most of the local tours arranged by the hotel. After a day spent outdoors, relax with a refreshing in-room spa treatment. Wine and dine on light eats at the bistro and follow it up with a hearty meal at the in-house restaurant, accompanied by live music in the evenings.
