My husband and I just returned from a lovely weekend in Newport and I will say The Hotel Viking has some very nice attributes, however, for the price I am looking for more. We had a King sized comfortable bed, but not the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The room was large enough and and very pretty as well as clean but a very disappointing bathroom. No extras such as cotton balls, q-tips or shower cap. The shampoo, body wash and conditioner are dispensed from pumps mounted on the shower wall, so who knows what brand, kind, etc. And the tub has the old tiles, clearly not refurbished. No bathroom rug, just the tub bathmat. The general cleanliness of the lobby and sitting areas was just ok, I never saw anyone fluffing the pillows on the couches or wiping down the side and coffee tables and they truly needed some attention. We used the workout room twice, again, just ok, all the machines worked, plenty of free weights, but just two very old mats with rips on the corners and stuffing popping out. Breakfast was included with our package and we got the breakfast buffet both mornings. What was served was good, but very basic, certainly nothing to get very excited about. Lovely waitresses both mornings, could not have been more gracious and the coffee is excellent. The staff was friendly enough, but again, for the price we paid I would like more than just ok. We will not return, so many other places to try in Newport.
