Great stay

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was lovely. We were never bothered by housekeeping, and they managed to get in and clean when we were only away for 4 hours. Very appreciated.

Excellent location. Parking was expensive, and my booking didn't include parking or a service fee charge.

Newport Girls Getaway

We stayed here in the height of the summer holiday and the price reflected that! While the room was luxurious, it wasn't worth $500 for a night. The hotel roof top bar was great, with live music. Location was also fantastic as you could walk most places. I would recommend but shop around for a good rate.

Beautiful week in Newport

Can't credit the hotel for the weather, but it was just perfect. The restaurant/bar, ONE had very slow service at breakfast. Because we'd taken the online deal at this site we weren't eligible for the $1 parking. At $30 a day, it's a bit much. But overall it is a very nice hotel and perfectly located within minutes of the wharf

Beautifully maintained hotel

We enjoyed staying at the Viking hotel. It was located in a beautiful part of Newport, about a five minute walk from the waterfront. The rooms were very clean, with amazing beds, fairly modern decor, and free Wifi. They'll try to convince you to leave your car with the Valet for $35, but you can just park it yourself on Church St.
