We stayed 1 night between our ferry trip from Martha's Vineyard and our train from Kingston to NYC. I had walked by the Viking last year but did not go inside. I was surprised how massive it was. We walked forever to get to our room. Liked it that the room was on ground level and did not have to take the elevator. The hotel itself is nicely decorated. It is both elegant and stylish. Lots of natural light in the public spaces.
Our room was large and decorated in a 1920's motif. As the hotel is old, it was a bit unusual that the toilet was across the hall from the sink. The room was very quiet and the beds were extremely comfortable. The outdoor terrace was very nice. We also visited the rooftop bar for a look but did not stay. We took the 15 minute walk to the harbor and had dinner there.
When I checked out I looked at the bill and they had charged for parking but we did not have a car. The charge was removed but still not correct. I was still being charged $2.00 (total of $18) for parking. The next time the charge was refunded correctly. It is important to review your bill before departing.
