I chose the Hotel Viking for our first trip to Newport. I read the mixed reviews on tripadvisor, but once I got the incredible rate on Priceline, there was no turning back! I was anxious we were going to be in the "unrenovated" section of the hotel, but we were not. We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor which definitely was recently renovated. I laughed when I saw the sink and thought about the reviews I had read. You see, the Viking put in the ever so trendy vessel sinks which look lovely but whoever picked the faucets didn't really think it out. Watching my husband try to fit his large hands under the running water was amusing. Anyway, the water was hot and pressure was good...that's all that matters to us. :) We did have a small problem with the toilet but once I told them at the front desk it was fixed immediately.
The location of the hotel is just perfect. We parked the car Friday night and never took it out again untill we left on Sunday. The offseason rate to park is $15 a night. It's $28 in peak season. Well worth it once I saw how much parking could be a problem. I can't even imagine it in the summer! The staff was lovely - polite and professional. This is a big deal to me. We did not eat at the restaurant so I can't comment. The lobby was decorated for Christmas which made it warm and welcoming. The location of the Hotel Viking is absolutely perfect! We will be sure to return!
