Stayed here for a three day weekend. From the minutes we arrived the service was superb. Hotel employees were amazing and very helpful. Love the breakfast at the hotel restaurant, a little pricey but well worth it. Service at the restaurant was also great. Love the bikes in the front of the hotel to be signed out and able to take a bike ride around town. Prime location too

Hotel's Favorite
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Viking this past weekend. We had not been there in years and forgot what a great hotel it is. The valet parking guys were great! Very quick, courteous and a pleasure to chat with. The two young ladies at the front desk were also very nice and very helpful. The public areas were beautiful as was our room. The rooftop bar and the lobby bar were both very comfortable and the service was excellent. Bloody Mary’s were the best we’ve had in Newport! Our son and his wife and our grandchildren live at the the top of Kay Street so we were only minutes away from them. We also met them at Bowen’s Wharf on Saturday for lunch. About a 5 minute walk. First and Second beaches are a short drive from the hotel. We had a great weekend at the Hotel Viking! Hope to return soon!!!

Located in the heart of downtown Newport I found this charming hotel walking distance from Thames Street. Beautiful hotel dating back to the 20's. Simply great hotel. Very clean hotel and staff is on top of everything to make sure your stay is perfect. Cannot say enough about this property. Absolutely loved the Junior Suite. So much room. Will definitely be staying here again. Great area to visit to take in an era gone by. The Cliff walk is a must do as well as the mansion tours.

I booked this hotel for a weekend in Rhode Island with a friend, and it was AWFUL. Our room had a bad odor, the bathroom was not clean, and there was MOLD in the BATHROOM. When we talked to mgmt, they were not surprised and recommended we find another hotel, and they understood the hotel was older and needed a remodel. We then went to the restaurant for a drink to call other hotels, and there was lipstick on my glass they served my cocktail in. I quickly asked them to change it, and they did. THIS IS A DIRTY HOTEL Luckily the Marriot had a room for us, so we checked out of the Viking the same day we checked. Look at the photos of our bathroom, $300 for this DISGUSTING MESS. LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. YUCK

We called the Hotel Viking a few hours before check in to find out what the check-in procedure is with cover. They told us that everyone gets a temperature check and social distancing and masks are required. When we got there, there was no temperature checks and also absolutely no masks among many. We checked out early.
