The staff at the Hotel Viking were excellent hosts. From the great welcome at check in to the assistance throughout our stay. We loved this property, it exceeded our expectations. Looking forward to going back, sometime in the summer season. Cannot say enough good things about this place one of our favorites!

Hotel Viking was fantastic. The staff was amazing and the bartender was so much fun. The hotel food was excellent and this is not always true of hotel food. The rooms were very beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It is located in a very quiet but within walking distance of the harbor and shops.

This was our first visit to the Viking. What a wonderful hotel! Very attentive and helpful staff, regarding restaurants and destinations. Good location with some nice shops right up the street. Parking was $30 for valet, which we used as the closest other was blocks away. Comfy beds, large rooms and small but nicely updated bath. The only negative was...

This hotel, which is on the National Historic register, is in need of a face lift. The room had a slightly musty smell and the carpeting was overdue to be replaced. The lobby area is warm and inviting while the rooms are reminiscent of something seem more in a two star hotel. While the staff is very friendly, we didn't...

Hotel was nothing special, basic rooms and service. Staff was friendly and attentive. Although we did not eat at the hotel restaurant the atmosphere was nothing special, it was an extension of the lobby.
