The best hotel ever I mean it's near the beach for crying out loud it's also near a bunch of restaurants and you can walk a block to rent these scooters that are like mini cars.the cliff walk is near it and it just the best place to go with your family.

My husband and I arrived in Newport this weekend and decided to see what the Hotel Vikings restaurant lounge had to offer. Our Saturday night was exceptional due to the wonderful entertainment and best service we received. The manager Federico's choice of entertainment and exceptional service from Spencer who never stops smiling and also is the best waitress around made our night complete. Thank you for excellent customer care !!

We couldn’t be more pleased at the outcome of your weekend stay. Thank you for mentioning our One Bellevue hosts, Federico and Spencer! Both are wonderful associates and exemplify what we always hope to portray to our guests, that guest service has to be first and foremost in each of our daily mission. We are looking forward to your next visit .

Really Truly an exceptional hotel. You won't find anything like it in the area.

THE STAFF IS SUPERB!!! There is nothing they can't handle with a smile on their face. They are incredibly professional and helpful as well as friendly at every opportunity.

The hotel is a perfect walking distance from the hubbub of Newport so you are afforded a nice respite from the goings on. The property is beautiful and the rooms are tasteful and elegant.

There aren't enough words to say how AMAZING this hotel is.
We will ONLY STAY HERE for all of our future trips to Newport, RI.

When visitors chose a hotel they hope to receive quality service delivered with a genuine smile of welcome when they arrive along with a professional helpful attitude. When our staff can convey this to our guests - we know we are succeeding! We agree also that the Hotel Viking offers a "cozy and relaxing atmosphere". Please plan on visiting in the not to distant future.

We stayed for just one night for our Anniversary. Public rooms and our room very clean and polished looking. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Nice location for all the attractions of Newport.
The only thing we had trouble with was music from the party below kept us up. Breakfast was nice but just average food. (We loved Bouchard Inn for a special dinner, and Rosemary and Thyme for great sandwiches!) We also had Afternoon tea here which was more about atmosphere. I found the tea cold for my taste, but the scones and lemon curd were great! Beds supercomfortable. Bring slippers, the tiles in the bathroom are cold. Valets friendly and efficient. For some reason I didn't realize they had an indoor pool and didn't bring my bathing suit.
Overall, we liked it, and I would stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Viking for the weekend at the end of January. We took advantage of off-season prices and smaller crowds, and were able to see much of the city in a short time, all by foot from the hotel. It is located within a short walking distance to the waterfront shopping and dining. The staff at the hotel was wonderful from start to finish, making this average hotel seem like a more luxurious experience. Our original room was VERY small, and when I inquired at the desk about any rooms in our price range that might offer more space, Monique moved us to a larger room for no additional cost. Our valet took very personal care of us, and everyone smiled. We did pay $7 for a Coors in the hotel lobby bar, which was ridiculous, but our rate of $99/night with parking for $16/night was very reasonable. When we go back, we will try to stay at the Viking again. Overall, a great deal.

We love staying at the Hotel Viking. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is terrific and we love the location where we can walk downtown to shops and restaurants. Looking forward to staying in the warmer weather when we can enjoy the 4th floor bar.
