Beautiful rooms, wonderful staff...centrally located. Definitely will be back. The beds were amazing to sleep in and although our room was overlooking a parking lot...the view of the town just passed the lot was very charming. Pool was great but the carpet gets wet and soggy which is a little gross but honestly the only thing I'd change. Staff was...

I spent one night in this state at the Hotel Viking. The hotel is what I would call a luxury one. It looks like the pictures. I did not use the pool area but it looked very clean. I booked a facial and massage at the spa. I found that service to be very satisfactory as well. The hotel is...

Thank you for your high recommendation of The Hotel Viking. We are glad you found our historic hotel to be so well appointed and luxurious.

Good experience overall. Very friendly staff and a very well maintained and clean property in all respects. The $30 parking charge per night is excessive just to drop your car in a largely empty lot right behind the property. But, all parking in this area from the wharf to the hotel is all charging to park. The Viking takes the...

This is a Historic hotel that still provides great service! (Read their history on their web site) Every staff member we saw, at desks or just passing in the hallway was friendly and said hello! We felt very welcome! We were accommodated when we asked to check in early but that meant that we were down two very long hallways...

Delusion of grandeur for this place for sure...having just checked out of one of the nicest hotels in NYC and travelled directly here well I'm shocked to be charged $30 for parking in Newport. That's the same rate I paid to park in NYC, perfectly understandable its NYC a city. Maybe I should rephrase the Viking parking i'm shocked in...

Despite your appreciation for your guest room, we regret if you were in any way disappointed with your stay or if you found any of our charges to be unexpected. As you mentioned, there is a fee for our Valet service in our secure lot. Alternatively, guests are welcome to find on-street parking where available. It is disheartening to know...

Just spent 2 nights here with my boyfriend to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and was really disappointed with our stay. I wonder if we got the worst room in the building, but it really was a joke. The bathroom was tiny and the sink was ridiculously small and awkward to use and move around. I thought it was weird...

Great location: Short walk to restaurants and sites. Hotel: Lots of historic character and charm. Room: Clean and roomy enough (had one of the smaller queen rooms). Staff: Extremely friendly and attentive. Amenities: Good workout facility and pool. For the price this is a great hotel.

This hotel offers wonderful service, very clean and comfortable accommodations, and is in a great location. There is a spa with excellent services including facials and massages. The restaurant is excellent as is the pub area. A newspaper was left at my door each morning, and there was iced tea and lemonade in the foyer. I will definitely return.
