We stayed at the Hotel Viking for two nights in July. The Hotel is quite attractive and is an excellent location for sightseeing and shopping. You most likely will not need your car during your stay. The management of the hotel is first rate. We found the room to be a little small and the bathroom very cramped but the... More

My husband and I took my mother to Newport to tour the cottages for her birthday. We booked two rooms at Hotel Viking for three nights and enjoyed staying at this lovely hotel. As a matter of fact, we liked it so much, my husband and I went back for a "couples" three day weekend several weeks afterwards. We're hoping... More

Beautiful hotel. It's very large but the front desk where super nice and helpful. Our room was very nice and the location great. The whole family loved Newport. One small negative was the parking charge. I think $38 for one nights parking is a bit steep.

Stayed here one night and for me that was enough. The Viking is a beautiful building and in a beautiful area, easy walking distance to downtown Newport and shopping. For me, not my cup of tea. I enjoy modern amenities and decor i wanted to try this out for the first time. First, decor is very traditional for the age... More

The location and the quality of all the appointments were the reason to stay here, but with parking our 3 days was $1200 and I look back and think what did I really pay that much money for? Not great sleep, not great food, just a prestigious address and a lot of valets who you feel the need to tip... More

We had 9 out-of-town guests staying and they ALL loved the hotel. It is hard to please everyone but The Viking did just that! The valets were fast and courteous when we pulled into the driveway. The front desk staff had all of the information already. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Everything was in walking distance. I would... More

We stayed at the Hotel Viking for 2 nights in July. Our check-in was handled very politely & efficiently. Our valet service was excellent. The valet team went out of their way to provide outstanding service during the rainstorms that accompanied Hurricane Arthur. The team provided the "house" car to transport us to a restaurant outside of the hotel during... More

My husband had a conference at the hotel and I was able to accompany him. It coincided with our 19th anniversary so it was perfect. We had a suite in the mansion which was great! The actual bedroom was very small, so I'm glad we had the extra room. The bathroom was spacious enough. I loved the location. A 5... More

Very pretty hotel, nice location , not far from shopping area, near mansions, staff was so friendly , Problem with room type when I checked in ( it had a bi-level suite) and it was changed immediately to one that was one level... Front desk was great, valet friendly ,,,, so would stay here again. Charming

Right from the start, valet destroyed my car. Room was way over priced for what I got. Would not recommend. Just check others on Yelp.com and tripadvisor.com. Management only responds with complaints for over the last years, " Were working on resolving the problem" Talk is cheap. As my vacation continues, battling with insurance adjusters
