I booked through Travelocity and got a decent deal thinking I got the 2 Queen beds. Well I don't know what happened but it was 1 queen bed. Called hotel before we arrived and they said call Travelocity. I ended up getting the 2 queen bed room but now had to pay $25 more. I think it was Travelocity's fault..... More

Excellent stay! Was upgraded on arrival to fantastic room with two floors and spiral staircase! Great location - walkable to many Newport attractions including the Cliff Walk and Bellevue mansions. Staff was very friendly and the hotel has a fantastic rooftop bar. Will definitely be back for next trip to Newport!

The website advertises a Kids Club and a Family Games room (my wife also phoned to confirm this). Great for my 12 year old son I thought. When checking in they told us that this was only available in the winter ! What a disappointment ! Never believe what you read on a website ! Overall the service in the... More

This is a classy, "old school" of hotel for those who want to stay in a "real" hotel once in a while. It is located about a fifteen minute walk from the main shopping street at the top of a hill. Newport is a walkable town and we walked everywhere, though there are taxis and buses. It is an older,... More

This could be a really lovely hotel and first impressions (enforced valet parking aside) were really good. What let's it down is attention to detail, cleanliness and service levels. Despite an extended stay I didn't once any cleaning done in the pool area - and it needed it. I asked for it but didn't get it. First time a hotel... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Viking. It was close enough for us to walk down to the water and close enough for us walk into town and to the cliff walk. Our room was on the third floor and we overlooked the court yard. The staff was very helpful.

Hotel is elegant, centrally located, and has all the amenities you could need. We are a family of 4 with a tween and a teen. The suite worked well.

I wasn't sure what to expect my first time in Newport. There are many B&B's and initially thought I would choose one. I am so glad I did not. The hotel is located away from the waterfront, up a slight hill. It is not a far walk, however, it is very touristy on the waterfront. Staying in the hotel we... More
