“Elegant lodging in the heart of Historic Newport”
Reviewed 26 May 2011

Although our accomodations were lovely, I would suggest that the hotel provide rooms in closer proximity to lobby/entrance to elderly guests.

Make the drive to Newport and stay at the Hotel Viking to indulge in not just a king-sized bed but in a king-sized extravaganza of duvet and pillows for an incredible night's sleep.

Beyond being a beautiful piece of Americana, the Hotel Viking offers delicious seafood, perfect service, and a fantastic historical location.

ANSWER: We are pleased to receive such heart warming praise. Many of our guests actually ask where they can purchase our pillows and mattress sets. The Hotel Viking is continually looking for ways to improve every aspect of our guest service. Thank you again.

My boyfriend and I had never been to Newport before, so when it came time to pick a hotel we deciding on the Viking because the reviews were great and we found a great room rate on Orbitz. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a central part of downtown Newport, close enough to walk to the waterfront, the cliff walk, and some of the mansions, but far enough that you feel like you're sleeping in a more quiet and secluded part of town. The hotel staff was very friendly and the room we stayed in (a Manor Room) was clean and nice-sized. The bathrooms were probably the nicest bathrooms that I've ever seen in a hotel room before. The only weird thing was the positioning of the TV on a very far wall in a "nook" in the room, but it was still comfortable to watch TV from the bed. We stayed on the third floor and overall we had no problems with noise, except for a little bit in the morning when the housekeeping staff began their work. (Their storage closet was either next to or across from our room.) We had breakfast downstairs in the restaurant and it was delicious and reasonably priced. We also really loved the small French bakery across the street for breakfast as well. I would highly recommend staying here for your next trip to Newport!

Room Tip: Book a Manor Room on a high floor.

A perfect place to stay when visiting Newport. Parking is pricey so use off street parking in the low season but very glad they had it available. ask for a room close to lobby you could walk a bit because of lack of entrances and exits to get in and out of hotel. Did a lot of walking.

The Hotel Viking lived up to it's historic reputation and provided beautiful accommoddations, genuine service and a well managed staff of friendly employees. My room was flawless and was only matched by the superior service I received from the hotel staff.

Hotel staff were truly amazing. From check-in to check out and everything in between. I was there for a conference and the hotel staff really goes above and beyond. The guest room as as well as the meeting facilities are well appointed and done with guest satisfaction in mind.
I highly recommend this hotel for conference as well as leisure travel. I can't wait to return.
