I've stayed at the Viking many times in the last twenty years as it is close to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Each time my experience at the Viking has progressively gone downhill--maybe because my standards have changed and their prices have gone up. The historic nature of the hotel is not an excuse for tiny, dysfunctional rooms, and... More

Was here for a conference with my wife. Actually a good conference hotel and they did a really good job and have a good outdoor areas for cocktails and multiple people to hang out at. Spa is second class. Rooms are a little smallish but have some charm. Favorite part are the outdoor rocking chairs and great wood burning fireplace.... More

Our room was very clean and housekeeping was great. It was very quiet when going to sleep which was wonderful . We were room 226, De La Salle. and it was a gorgeous room.... More

This old, unusual property did not live up to my expectations of a luxury hotel. The rooms were pretty, but the bathrooms were small and not well laid out. The amenities were average at best. The beds and pillows should be top notch but I found them only adequate. The hotel is located in a good spot to walk around... More

The location could not be better. However, the rooms are small, smell of disinfectant and the restaurant is average. For $459 a night, I paid for the location. Easy walk to very good shopping and restaurants.

We stayed at the Viking Hotel for 2 nights. The reception and bell staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was ok but we were not so sure about the cleaning; there was a ball of hair on the floor that was not ours and what looked like black mould in the shower. The true disappointment was the bar... More

Just moved on after 3 great nights in Newport.The Viking is well located & love those historic hotels of America.The disappointments came at the hidden charges;$30 a night parking and $14 a night resort fee ( first time we've seen this in 20+ years touring US - is this now normal?)Takes the edge off when you feel taken advantage of....

Just back from a trip to beautiful Newport. We stayed 6 nights at this hotel and were happy with almost everything. The rooms were an excellent size with everything one could want. The location was fantastic...we were within walking distance of everything we wanted to see, do and eat !. My sister and her husband's room was the same as... More

Our first encounter was last year when six of us stopped in for a drink at the hotel bar. We were very welcomed by all we met that day. Our stay was only one night and everyone we met was absolutely wonderful. The guest room was very clean as was every area of the hotel we were in. We consider... More

When we first drove up to the hotel, we could tell we were in for an amazing experience and we were not disappointed. The welcoming staff were professional and very friendly. Our room was spacious and extremely comfortable. The location was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.
