We went to the Hotel Viking to do the tastings for our daughter's upcoming wedding. Because we were traveling from Richmond, VA we had to stay the night so we decided to stay there. First of all, the price for this hotel during this time was equal or less than much lower quality establishments. The service we got from the wedding coordinator (Marianne) and the gentleman (Daniel) serving us in the dining room couldn't have been better. The food was absolutely amazing! If our wedding guests get the same food we tried, they will be talking about this wedding for years to come. We are so excited!! We also had drinks in the bar that night and stayed in a beautiful room. What a reasful sleep and breakfast the next morning. I cannot say enough about the Hotel Viking. I am just so pleased we decided to have our daughter's wedding here.

The rooms were nice and the beds were so comfortable. It was off season so we had the place to ourselves so it seemed. The lobby was historic and beautiful and there is a nice restaurant there. The indoor pool and hot tub were a hit with the kids. I hope to return in the near future!

We love the Viking, and it is the only place we stay in Newport when we come. We have enjoyed many accomodations in Newport over the years, but the last place that we have decided on for all subsequent stays is the Viking. The staff and rooms are impeccable, we have yet to have a negative experience when staying here.

Room Tip: If the budget allows stay in a suite, they are spacious and luxurious. We have stayed in several dif...

Our second stay at Hotel Viking exceeded our expectations. All of the staff were courteous and helpful. The valet service was as prompt and efficient as anyone could hope to experience. The staff at the front desk made us feel like we were the only guests checking in, in spite of our arrival at a very busy time. The restaurant, bar staff and house keeping were excellent as well.

We found all staff members to be knowledgeable about Newport and willing to assist with directions and suggestions to make our stay enjoyable. There is no question about a return visit

The Viking Hotel was just what we needed to get away from it all during this dreary New England winter. The hotel is lovely, clean, comfortable and convenient to all that Newport has to offer. The staff is helpful and friendly and offered suggestions of great activities to take part in while we were there. Everything that you need is right there. The restaurant food was delicious; well prepared and professionally served.
We have come to the Viking often and we are never disappointed. Who needs Florida when we have wonderful places like the Viking in our area?

Thank you very much for your wonderful comments. How great it is to hear that you are a repeat guest. We appreciate your business. We are located in the heart of Newport, only a couple of minutes away from the downtown area. We are so proud of our associates! They are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. One Bellevue (our restaurant) is one of a kind. All the food is fresh and local. Our chef Kevin Thiele is so talented. You are absolutely right! Why to go to Florida if we have gorgeous Newport and the Hotel Viking close by.

This was our second trip to Newport and we deliberately went back to the Viking. We were there off-season (Feb) but there still was a buzz and the staff were attentive. Our room was cold when we got in and after the engineer checked the system, we were moved immediately to another (warm) room. We had a free ride to and from dinner down on the sea front with the shuttle and we had a lovely breakfast. Twice in a row, we found this to be a welcoming and pleasant place to stay. We'll be back.

This place was huge. Dinner and drinks are expensive, but staff is so friendly and accommodating. Rooms were really clean and windows could open for fresh air. Bed was super comfortable! Just a few blocks off Thames street so quiet yet close to all the action
