I recently stayed at Hotel Viking for a fun trip away with my fiancé on his birthday and from the moment we arrived we were blown away. The valet service is beyond compare; they make it seem like they have been awaiting your arrival! Front desk was fabulous asking if we needed any recommendations or had any questions. The lobby...

Our visit to Newport between Christmas and New Years was to see the Holiday Decorated Cottages of Newport. This being the winter season we chose a hotel instead of an Inn for the full service and convenience of dining in. We were pleased with the meals and our room was delightful. It was beautifully decorated and rather small but the...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel the last week of January for our Anniversary and had an amazing time. All employees throughout the hotel were polite and professional. The pool and spa were perfect. The food was delicious. The location of the hotel made it easy to walk to the mansions, tennis hall of fame, downtown, and the...

LOVED our stay here. Lovely room in an excellent facility staffed by friendly, professional folks. We'd return in a heartbeat. We enjoyed a wine/dinner pairing event, which was even more fun than we anticipated. Great drinks and music in bar on our first night too. Fantastic experience overall!

You know from the moment you step into the lobby here that the staff is 100% focused on making your visit special. The hotel itself is an historic property. The rooms with modern amenities are a step back in time. The health club and indoor pool make a winter weekend all the more attractive. Special call out to Michelle and...

We love Newport, and had family reasons to visit in winter - which is not as great as in summer, but good. First time in Hotel Viking, which has been there a very long time but is freshly updated and good. It is expensive - but not in comparison with its peers around the world. Good rooms. Great place.

I took my wife to this hotel for a romantic birthday/early Valentine's celebration. We had an amazing fire placed room looking out to the harbor of Newport. We arrived and we're able to enjoy early check in which was great because we wanted to get settled in before the afternoon tea. The tea was a great afternoon meal. The lobby/bar...

My boyfriend and I stayed here this weekend and loved our experience. We typically stay at a local bed and breakfast, but decided to try the Viking and were very impressed.

Very nicely done. Modernized an old hotel and left old touches as the old mail system. Small bathrooms. No place to put your toiletries. Nice rooftop bar/restaurant.
