My girlfriend and I stayed at the Oswego four nights in early September, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived at noon via the Clipper, and were able to check in early and we received an upgrade to a 1 bedroom suite without even asking.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the luggage storage was a lifesaver after we had checked out (we took a 7 pm sailing back to WA). I was especially impressed when we came to claim our bags and the front desk clerk told us we should wait to take our luggage and instead go to the restaurant, which was having a free wine tasting. Most hotels seem to be eager to get rid of you once check-out is complete, but the Oswego had the class to still treat us as guests.
The fully stocked kitchen was great, with modern, name brand appliances. The room was large enough for my tastes and the bathroom was gigantic, with a shower and a separate bathtub. My only complaint is the lack of air conditioning, as the room was overly toasty when we returned from sightseeing in the late afternoon. (Temperature was upper 70's F, and our room got the afternoon sun). Overall, great experience, and I would be glad to stay at the Oswego again, just maybe not on a really hot summer day.
