“Spa Day at Hotel Viking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 the indoor pool, relaxed on the loungers and read a book, then basked in the vivid sunset from the roof deck while sipping yummy cocktails and having a few snacks. What a way to end the day!!

In the morning, donning our robes after a restful nights sleep on the comfy queen beds, we proceeded to the Spa. Rebecca primped our toes while Nicole and Erin soothed our minds as well as our muscles. A perfect one-night escape!! Can't wait to do it again in November. And a late check out too, Bonus!!

Having guests return time and time again is the key to a successful business. At the Hotel Viking we have many wonderful repeat guests. It is a great way for us to keep all of our guest service skills finely tuned every day, seven days a week. Our purpose and goal is to have all of our guests feel welcomed, have a positive experience throughout their stay, and on their departure feel as if they cannot wait to return. We are fortunate to have you as our guest. Thank you.

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.

The mood and vibes we wish to present to our guests from all of our associates is total attention to detail and to provide a warm and welcoming attitude. We are especially delighted when guests spend several nights with us and enjoy all the amenities we have to offer. Newport and the Hotel Viking is a great place to visit.

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 staff was extremely nice and helpful. It is in a good location. You can walk to Thames and waterfront. You also can walk to the cliff walk and mansions -- a bit of a hike but not too far and a plesant walk.

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 arrived in moments! Great customer service! Oh, and free wifi!
In addition we ate breakfast in the hotel (ala carte) and it was fresh, delicious, and not too expensive! Our experience was terrific!
Also walking distance from the Touro Synagogue, a must when in Newport!

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 is beautiful, but beware - there is no glassware up there due to the wind - as I was told. Drinking wine out of a plastic cup just doesn't work for me, so I changed my order to a cocktail I didn't mind drinking out of plastic. :-) There were a lot of tennis players and celebrities staying there, so great for people watching. We did have dinner there one night, and I was unimpressed with everything except the vegetables - AWESOME!!!!! It did not seem as if they were properly staffed for providing great service. Our dinner took close to 3 hours, which I felt was unreasonable for a starter, dinner and no dessert. We ordered a bottle of wine and no one ever made a move to pour it for us. Frankly, I only saw our waiter (who was very nice but very harried) until close to the end of our dinner, when another server arrived on the scene. We had a pleasant time, but I would not recommend the restaurant. Great bartenders, however, and a lively bar scene! I would definitely stay here again, but would not revisit the restaurant.

Room Tip: Our room had a view of the harbor.
