Enjoyable experience

The Hotel Viking was perfect. The location is ideal for walking to all Newport hot spots i.e. The Wharf area, Mansions and Cliffwalk. The Hotel Viking was exceptionally clean and comfortable. We loved our time away in Newport!!

Great Stay

Hotel staff was exceptional in the local attractions. Spent time answering all my questions. The hotel was stunning, and our room was amazing! I loved how we were away from the commercialized areas by and off Bellveue Ave. with all the Mansions. Would recommend!

Great location. Would recommend

The hotel is located within walking distance of the wharfs and many cafes, restaurants, pubs. No need for a car in the evening. Also on same streets as the beautiful mansions to visit. Friendly staff. Would recommend if you are in Newport for a few days. We were there with two little children and got a room with two queen size beds, which was confortable for all of us.

Short stay, lasting impression

This hotel was a throw back to a bygone era. We checked in late. The Valets were fresh and eager. The front desk and staff were all very friendly and first class. We were upgraded to too beautiful suites and the beds and pull outs were so comfortable my children felt they were on a vacation. Breakfast and the waitstaff were wonderful. Highly recomend the Hotel Viking.

Best Location in Newport

The bellmen (valet service) was excellent. I would stay here again just because of the great service they provided. The place was clean but they don't seem to understand how important coffee is to guests. They provide free coffee but one morning all they had out was decaf? Pool was nice. Be warned though, most rooms seem to be in the motor lodge section rather than a historic hotel. They seem to pack them into this section which might be why they can offer low prices. The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. This might be the only hotel in Newport within walking distance to the shops, the Breakers, and the cliff walk.

Go out the back exit to cut the walk to Starbucks in half. We saved a lot of money by eating breakfast at Starbucks each morning.
