Hotel Viking

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First check in took to long, then was given a dirty room. Called from that room to tell front desk and was asked if I was sure it had been used. Pretty sure because bed unmade crib in room towels on floor dirty glasses etc! Then waited for new room. No actual soap or shampoo etc just bottles attached to wall that smelled awful all of them did. Makeup mirror had no light. Bathroom very dim. No full length mirrot. Air conditioner made loud noise when coming on and off to the point of waking me up constanly even with fan on. Last straw wake up call was 20 minutes late and had plane to catch but was already up because couldnt sleep with AC!

Nice location but you could hear everything going on in the rooms above us..Amanda at the front desk was AMAZING!! The gym had kids in their socks on the treadmill and their parents wouldn’t make them get off so there was no gym equipment available.. coffee shop is a nice addition.. Michael at the bar didn’t know how to make a bahama mama and the bar restaurant was decent.. burger was great but desserts lacked.. housekeeping was limited wouldn’t take away empty cups and didn’t wipe down counters...I found 2 bugs in the ice taken out of ice machine. This place must be crazy in the summer time.. valet parking would’ve been 40$ per night if we used it, which is high. Staff was friendly for the most part. Jets in the jacuzzi weren’t strong and there wee no towels left by the pool. Got a massage at the spa and although expensive it was wonderful!!

Loved central location, Picnic Cafe and Newport Museum across the street, also jacuzzi and spa.

The Staff was amazing at this property and really went out of their way to take care of us. The property is older and so the rooms are bit small and awkward. Very charming hotel though.

Beautiful hotel. Beds extremely comfortable and pillows are awesome

Very friendly staff. Hotel and room were very clean. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Lovely and comfortable hotel and would stay again One small issue. The gym’s cardio equipment was not properly serviced and one treadmill broke. The engineer came to fix and left without even leaving a sign that it was out of order so we needed to tell other guests verbally

Beautiful historic hotel! Our children and grandchildren had a wonderful time as well!

Always great, We go every year. There was a great craft fair on Sunday.

Best location. Close to everything that Newport has to offer and a calm relaxing end to the day.

Hotel is in a convenient location for food and attractions.

Good location, right in the middle of town. Valet service was excellent.

Hotel is in walking distance to main shops and restaurants

To start the staff was rude. Comments like “sir pants are required in at our balcony bar”, this was at check in only moments after mentioning a 13 hour travel day and wanting a shower. Then being abandoned by the bellman upon check in. Additionally we were double charged for the room and it took more than half a dozen phone calls to resolve the issue.

Beds were really comfortable with nice bathrooms. Rooftop bar was beautiful and location of hotel can't be beat. Hallways are a little dated but rooms are lovely! Enjoyed our time there, would return next time we are in Newport.

First, I paid for a king...was given two twins room instead Second, I call the hotel 10 times day of check in and no one answers. Had to callspa. Ordered champagne and roses for wife's birthday...they never came... Third...when brought to staff's attention...they were short and almost condescending. Not a good experience.

The hotel is an updated grande dame - historical bones and highlights with updated features. Our room was a bit small but lovely. Very nice modern bathroom. Bar service was exceptional. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly and helpful.
