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

Newport is a wonderful destination and we were looking forward to staying in this hotel which was chosen by our group for a meeting and focus of our social activities. The hotel is well sited above the harbour area and a short walk form the Tennis International Hall of Fame. I was aware that rooms in the old part of... More

The Hotel Viking is one of the nicer hotels in Newport. It is a historic hotel and has quite a bit of old world charm. I have stayed at this property several times over the past few years and am pleased to say that the property has continued to improve over the years. As you arrive at the property, you... More

Balinese massages and soothing pedicures were on the agenda for a 1 night stay at the Hotel Viking in Newport, RI. Eric checked us in and sent cozy robes to the room. With an early wake up call for our spa day, we decided to enjoy the hotel and its amenities. Slipped into our swimsuits for a refreshing dip in... More

We enjoyed the visit. It is a nice charming hotel. The food was excellent. The pool was nice. The shower and bathroom areas were quite small.Front desk staff were very helpful. We thought it was a bit much to charge a (refundable) $60 for an umbrella especially as one was broken.

Very nice property, but cleaning crew's work was substandard. Mold in the shower, crumbs on the floor, no soap in the bathroom, and lack of attention to details left a bad taste in my mouth. Likely an anomaly as others in my group didn't complain, but worth noting.

We enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Viking. We stayed in the older section. The room was well appointed with a comfortable King bed. it was a small room with only one table lamp and a desk lamp. A nice room to sleep in but not so nice if you like or plan to lounge in the room. The... More

The hotel staff were attentive, the hotel lovely and immaculate! The rooms were lovely, plush, comfy bed and linens, and thick towels. Instead of bottles of shampoo, conditioner and soap bars, there were dispensers of all shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the shower! I called and asked for bar soap (I don't like shower gel) and extra towels, they... More

I recently spent 3 nights at the Hotel Viking during the International Tennis Hall of Fame tournament and induction ceremony. It is within walking distance of the Hall of Fame and also the harbor/wharf areas. The room was beautiful and spacious and the shower/bathroom was great. Everyone I interacted with was pleasant and provided excellent customer service. The rooftop bar... More
