We had an excellent stay at the Viking. This hotel was recommended to us by friends and we will now pass it on. Each an every staff member offered unbelievable service. The location was perfect, we were able to walk everywhere even though it was December. Looking forward to a return trip.

A beautiful, charming historic hotel. We were attending a wedding on New Years Eve and Hotel Viking was one of the hotels suggested by the bride and groom. The service was excellent. Every request was taken care of promptly. Beautiful, historic building and furnishings. Service in the cocktail lounge was slow but delivered professionally. The hotel was full due to...

When one of my daughters 50th birthday was approaching, we thought that the Viking Hotel in Newport, RI would be perfect. We had attended a "Downton Abbey" tea there, and had liked it so much that we went two more times. My four daughters and I stayed there this past weekend and really enjoyed every minute of the time spent...

Thank you for staying with us over the New Year’s holiday. Coffee by the Christmas tree in one of our cozy sitting areas is indeed a wonderful way to relax on a winter morning. We very much appreciate your recommendation and look forward to your next visit!

My husband and I spent the weekend at the Viking. I have been here before but it has since been redecorated. We stayed in room 4023. It was tastefully decorated with high ceilings. We went down to the pool area and the pool was a good size but the whirlpool was small and only had 2 very weak jets. In...

For our anniversary stay my wife booked one of the "superior" rooms in the hotel - Courtyard View and king size bed. Unfortunately the 'view" was of the air conditioning units and the bed was a queen. The room itself was just Ok - a little on the worn out side with a very noisy air handling unit . When...

My girlfriend and I made our first-ever visit to Newport during the week between Christmas and New Year's. We enjoyed it immensely and our stay at the Hotel Viking certainly was one main reason. The Viking is a classic big, top-quality hotel with a staff that gives the place a small inn feel. That staff was top-notch, from the valet...

Our second visit to the Hotel Viking proved to be another wonderful experience. Friendly, courteous and friendly staff members everywhere. Lovely holiday decorations. Room was clean and exactly what you'd select to find in a quaint New England setting. We'll be back!

We stayed at the Viking two nights during the Christmas holidays. We booked a couple of King Guest rooms, which were spacious and comfortable. The staff at reception, the valet parking team and those in the restaurant were all very welcoming. The breakfast selection was very good. Overall - pleased with our stay. We will return when next in Newport.
