My husband and I spent a weekend here in January. We had a king room, which was spacious, uniquely decorated and most importantly clean. The room did run very warm though. The hotel is just blocks from the wharfs, but with a stormy weekend we used our car. The valet service was fast and friendly. We also enjoyed the complimentary...

A weekend away, whatever the weather, can be the perfect way to enjoy some precious couple time! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit with us to The Hotel Viking. Our Valet service offers the best in convenience and a cup of hot chocolate is the perfect to warm up after spending time in the chill of the winter....

...to make you believe you are somewhere in Europe. Old building with lots of charm. My husband and I had the pleasure of only one night stay, but we are sure to return.

My fiance and I stayed at Hotel Viking for one quick visit last weekend and were extremely pleased with the accommodations. We were visiting Newport for an early morning appointment and did not check in until late the night before, so we did not get to take advantage of the amenities of the hotel. However, we had a quick check-in...

I was just there and celebrated my 40th birthday. My mother and sisters hosted a tea. The service was exceptional and owning a business myself this is KEY!

The Viking hotel is perfectly located in the center of Newport. It's as conveniently located to the waterfront as it is to the Newport Mansions, and lots of other fascinating neighborhoods. We stayed for a three day off season weekend and it was absolutely delightful. We walked everywhere and discovered distances were actually shorter between sites than we had anticipated....

I absolutely love the charm of the Hotel Viking. It is nestled tightly in historic downtown Newport, so it centrally located to sites and shops. However, if you feel like doing nothing, and just want to relax, dine, and spa, then you don't ever have to leave the hotel. The service is top shelf, and so is any of the...

Very nice experience from beginning to end. Just one small complaint, with the emphasis on small: the bathroom in the area of the hotel we stayed in (room 414) was too small to accommodate a toiletry bag. Yes, that's pretty small. I wound up putting the toilet seat lid down to use as counter space. Not ideal. There was no...
