“Would definitely stay again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Front desk girl was very helpful and accommodating. We chose a small room which was fine for our needs for one night. Nicely decorated and comfy bed. We would stay there again. Close to everything so we could park and walk to most places. Though we didn't partake, the breakfast buffet looked yummy!

I visited the hotel in off-season for a work event. It's a beautiful old hotel well located within walking distance of most places you'd want to visit. Staff were very polite and helpful. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking to explore the area. Food in the bar was pretty good and there are lots of other fantastic options nearby.

The staff is awesome. Rooms r older, but refreshed. Bed was comfortable. The draw back is that its loud. Could hear people upstairs, in the halls etc. Breakfast buffet which was included was excellent as buffets go, and it was nice that the breakfast coupon also allows u to order off the menu if u prefer. Its 6 uphill blocks from downtown, but we had a very nice stay. I think the highlight was how warm, friendly and efficient the entire staff was.

The Hotel Viking was renovated most recently. Thank you for your compliments on behalf of our staff. We always try to encourage our guests to let us know what their exact needs are. If you request a quiet room, we will do our best to accommodate you in a more quiet location. Our breakfast packages are very popular among our guests. We are glad to hear that you took advantage of it.

The customer service is great. The HV is in a great location (walking distance to all
restaurants and shops). The rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly, and oh yes ....plenty of parking.

I can't say enough good things about the Hotel Viking. My husband and I went up for a weekend in March and had a great time. The staff is beyond accomodating - they really aim to make your experience a pleasant one and they succeed. While checking in, they offered suggestions on places to dine, places to walk to, etc. When we returned from dinner, our bed was turned down with calm and inviting music playing.They made us feel like we were home. You really can't go wrong with the Hotel Viking!

The Hotel Viking is beautiful and high end. It is an older hotel, but the staff maintains it well. The front desk person was friendly and helpful as were the valet attendants. The location was great. We walked to Newport's downtown to enjoy music and bar food.

However, I wasn't impressed by the room. Though it was beautiful and clean, the acoustics were not good. I could hear the murmuring of the television on the other side of the wall. Also, the room across had a crying baby that would not stop crying, and this occurred at 11 p.m. I feel if the acoustics were better, the baby nor the TV would've bothered us. Though a beautiful hotel, we will probably not be back due to this issue, unless we have to, but overall, it was a good experience.

Suggestion to staff: If possible, please put family bookings on same floor in the same area, so they do not disturb couples.

Conveniently located in the charming town of Newport. The bathrooms were a bit cramped, but we made do. Beds are great and the rooms are welcoming. The restaurant off the lobby is a bit pricey, but if you want a scrumptious breakfast and coffee that works, it's a fine choice- you won't be disappointed. The service, both in the hotel and in the restaurant are exemplary and topped off our stay with happy memories. Highly recommended!
