"Be aware of hidden fees - room is very small"
They charge $20 valet fee without telling you upfront (plus the $14 resort fee). The room was extremely small with a half bath which makes you feel like you're in Manhattan - given the price we paid! We were very disappointingly and will not be coming back for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in the Heart of Town"
The staff at The Viking Hotel are the friendliest and most helpful of any you'll find. Couple that with a clean up-to-date room, pool and common area and you've got a winner. This hotel is right in the heart of the historic district so you can walk to shopping and eating places. I loved this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A grand old fashioned hotel!"
Overall, a great old fashioned hotel. Our initial room was very small, but as housekeeping forgot to make up our room after the first night, and they had left for the day, they upgraded us to a beautiful large room with fire place. It would be nice if the bar had some lounges as well as tables to relax. We stayed in the manor part of the hotel where […] plumbing is a little noisy and also housekeeping needed to be more quiet in the morning. But these were only minor details. Definitely worth a stay!

"An elegant choice"
Our room was a bit small, but beautifully appointed and very comfortable. It was also, for the price, a steal. It's a nice location, walking distance to downtown Newport, just a block or two from the historic Tauro Synagogue, and a direct shot by car to the mansions on Bellevue Avenue. Staff was friendly and competent. There is no self-parking, so allow […] for a $20 daily parking fee. Valet service is quick and efficient. Nice bar, good food, beautiful pool and spa. Wish we could have stayed more than 2 days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a lovely, lovely hotel. Even though it sits right in the main line of traffic to see all the Newport mansions, it was so very quiet no matter what the time of day. The staff went out of their way to be as pleasant as possible, which is impressive these days. The room itself was very nice, but I didn't necessarily find the bathroom to be spotless. […] It wasn't dirty, but the floor wasn't too clean, nor where the walls. Definitely not something that would prevent me from returning to such a beautiful hotel.

"Will come back!"
This was my first stay at the Viking and will be definitely coming back. The staff was really nice and accommodating. They have a house car that can drop you off and pick you up which I found very helpful. If you want to walk, everything is within walking distance. Room was comfy, although on the smaller side. Definitely a bit on the expensive side […] though, I got a 'deal' and paid a little under $600 for two nights but the hotel didn't feel like a 5 star hotel or worth that much. Also, we had dinner at their restaurant one night and spent $100 on a soup for myself, an entree for my husband and a coupe of drinks (better off to go have dinner in town) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect .... but ...."
The hotel, the location and the restourant are great ...... but a wedding party kept us (two kids, my wife and me) awake till 2.00 am (after the second call to doorman)... No mentioned at the check out ... A customer is satisfied when you overcome expections ... not this time !Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful, fun time. The Viking was very nice - bed & linens were excellent !Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would not stay here again"
You have to pay extra for parking and the hotel's wifi internet is terribly slow. The Queen bed rooms are extremely small and uncomfortable. We were told that complimentary breakfast is included in our room price but were asked to present vouchers for breakfast which we later found out that we were not eligible for. Pick the Marriot which is closest […] to the Newport visitor center for location convenience and better room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little getaway to Newport"
Liked the hotel very much, would book again, especially in the cooler months with the access to the indoor pool when staying with kids. There was some peeling paint on the shower side of the bathroom in our 2000 area room. The sink is in its own room and the shower is in its own room with no alot of ventilation so it causes the moisture buildup. It's […] the only thing I could have pointed out to complain about- but not a deal killer by any means. Liked the decorations and furnishings, we'd love to stay again on our next visit. We read that we would be charged a $20/day in&out valet parking fee, but that never showed up (so far) on our check-out bill and that was a pleasant surprise. Maybe it's not charged in the off-season like Newport meters themselves? (Nov-April 30). Hotel location is a 8-10 min walk downhill to town (coming back after dinner the uphill becomes more noticeable). Overall great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel; well located walking distance to all"
We enjoyed the Viking. The room was clean and very comfortable. We would definitely stay at the Viking again. BobGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at the Hotel Viking for one night last week on our 5th anniversary.The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We received a complimentary upgrade because it was our anniversary! Our bed was very comfortable. I would stay here again during my next visit to Newport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful, relaxing stay, and a great breakfast in the dining room in a beautiful, historic hotel on Bellevue!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I brought my own wine glasses to enjoy a glass in the evening. Room service took them after the first night, I was unable to have them returned or replaced. Didn't blame the room service but thought the front desk could have been a little more helpful. Other than that our stay was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old hotel in Newport renovated beautifully."
As the hotel was built in 1926 some of the rooms like ours) was small but beautifully decorated. You're only going to sleep and wash there so that is no big deal to us. The desk clerks were gracious and ready to assist with any questions or services you might require. The valet staff practically tripped over themselves to accommodate you and retrieve […] your car when needed. The bartender was very friendly and service was impeccable and fast. We did not try the restaurant in the hotel but the menu looked delicious and we promised ourselves to dine there next time. This is the place to stay if you're visiting Newport!

"Reconsider before you book"
Highly disappointed! We had great expectations for a wonderful weekend stay while attending a family wedding in Newport. Upon arrival we were placed in a very small corner room on the busy street. The room was not clean, linens were old and worn and the pillows had an odd used smell. On top of that the hotel charges a high amount for one night of parking, […] over and above the room rate! During the night we could hear someone in the neighboring room coughing quite loudly... thin walls. We would not stay again; there are better choices in the area for the price. About the only positive thing we can say is the location is ideal for walking and seeing many of the sights. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was beautiful. Very nice comfortable and friendly staff. My only complaint is that I had to pay 35$ to park after paying 300 to stay there. Parking should be included.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Viking still a best bet in Newport"
There were two weddings coinciding with my friends getaway weekend and while at first I was concerned about the convergence of two large wedding groups plus other hotel guests in common areas, the hotel and staff handled it all beautifully. I was also fearful there would be a lot of noise but our room was blissfully quiet. The odd thing about the room, […] however, was that the shower/tub and commode were in one room with a door and the sink and a closet made almost dysfunctional by the addition of a cabinet and the ironing board which took up all the room and left little space for hanging garments - isn't that the purpose of a closet? All in all, I would go back and I would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient well-run hotel in Newport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent hotel not far from the coast!"
My husband and I recently spent one night at the Hotel Viking. We were there in the off season, so we had no trouble getting a room. They had a great off season special, so the price was great! Because our room was ready, they were more than willing to let us check in several hours early. We did have to pay for parking ($17/day in the off season), which […] was a minus, but I'm sure during the peak of season, being able to park your car and use public transit or walking would be a great deal. It was obvious that the hotel had taken great care to upgrade the rooms and make this "historic hotel" look up-to-date. The bathrooms are quite small, but beautiful. The bed was comfortable, and we had plenty of space in the room. We would definitely recommend it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was clean and beautifully decorated. Bed was super comfortable. Staff was friendly and attentive. Only thing I didn't like was that I couldn't find a vending machine anywhere when I wanted to buy a water. There are snacks and water in the hotel room but at a ridiculous mark up. Overall positive hotel experience. I would stay there again when in […] the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Misses the mark on it's regal stature"
Raining, valet did not offer an umbrella to walk to the hotel. No one opened the door as we juggled bags. A hotel staff member greeted as we entered. First impressions/ lasting impressions. Andre, checked us in& pointed us to our room. Hotel hallway was very chilly. Clean& pleasantly decorated, room appeared fine. Unpacking, opened the drapes to reveal […] drab view of parking lot& maintenance. Room was drafty, with a heating system that provided a bothersome rhythmic beat day& night. Tried to block out the sound w/ music from cd/radio/ clock...time to upgrade systems, so personal music selections can be accessed. The room has the toilet &tub/shower (that didn't drain) in a small room& the sink& closet in another tiny room. Storage, VERY limited! Closet had a tall dresser taking up 1/2 the space, ironing board the other 1/2. Weekend clothes crammed into space draping on the ironing board. Needing the ironing board to iron now wrinkled outfits, take all hanging clothes out. Room has 2 file folder drawers used as nightstands, deep drawers. A large unit held the fridge but no storage space, making it pretty, not fully functional. Thin walls to hear whiney child next-door. Overall, room had an awkward layout that took away from the charm. Clean fitness center& pool. Hotel is conveniently located near attractions. Exiting the hotel we passed guests dripping wet& cursing the rain...it's the small things like umbrellas that can make all the difference in setting the tone of a stay.

"Wave and Wren's awesome getaway"
My girlfriend and I thought Newport would be a perfect spot to getaway from school for a couple days and we were proved right by the awesome deal we got at the hotel Viking. The room was a tad small, but it fit our needs just fine. The staff was super accommodating when it came to bringing us a fridge and extra soap, or advice on where to go for breakfast […] in the area. The hotel Viking was located in a superb area, my only advice is go when it's warm out, Newport in March can get a tad chilly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Newport Mansions"
I stayed overnight at the Hotel Viking - very nice staff and beautifully decorated room. Comfortable bed! The breakfast buffet looked wonderful however I had oatmeal and coffee, both good. I loved that when I checked out all I had to do was literally drive down the street to visit the Newport Mansions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, but small and noisy room."
My wife and I stayed here before and liked it. This time we got much smaller, corner room overlooking the main entrance. All the noise from valley parking, people loading/unloading their cars was heard in the room. Also, with very heavy rain and the wind overnight, rain drops were bombarding our window with such force, we could not sleep. The bathroom […] was small with tiny sink. It obviously did not help with our expirince. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pretty good but not "that great""
The hotel looks fantastic in those pictures, but it's just a pretty good hotel in reality. Location is great. It's quite convenient for mansion tour, and you can pick up some good wine across the street. However, the dinner service is a total ripoff. Have your dinner at other placesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Early Spring Getaway"
We had a wonderful long week end at the Hotel Viking. the staff couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. The hotel is a lovely,well maintained little gem.the only complaint we did have was that the heater thermostat did not really work well which caused the room to be a little chilly in the overnight hours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Other than the old food left in the mini fridge by a previous guest (smelled like rotten chowder) the experience was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is beautiful and located in a great spot. All was well with the exception of the heat, our room was 59 degrees for the entire night. We called maintenance and it was eventually fixed but the hotel did not apologize or offer any type of voucher.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Let's start with the good. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just about a miles walk from the very end of Thames and far less than that to get to the wharf or downtown. The staff was the model of service, always polite, professional, and willing to attempt to accommodate the guest. The not so good: The rooms are old and tired. We were originally […] placed in 402 which was at the corner overlooking 2 streets. The street noise was unbearable so we were moved to the only other room available, 403. The street noise on this side was much better but the room was still extremely loud! We could hear every conversation happening in the hall, every word of the movie in the room next door, and the obnoxious maid who was yelling at 7:30 am. The rooms are also very small-just barely big enough for a bed and a desk. Overall, I would definitely think twice about booking here again, because although the location was good, we did so little sleeping/relaxing due to the noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, great location"
The hotel is situated just a couple of blocks from Thames St. Perfect little walk to many shops, restaurants and the harbor. I wish I would've known they where having St. Patrick's day celebrations because my husband and I didn't get to enjoy any of the restaurants near by. They where all overcrowded with people that had WAY too much to drink. The […] staff was really nice and accommodating. They let us check in early, the valet were helpful and professional. The room was nice but not entirely clean. A couple of the pillow cases where dirty, which led me to believe they didnt bother changing anything. My husband did not think that possible. Did not order room service because it was ridiculously expensive. The price to stay over night was ok. Even though I really liked getting away, not sure I would stay here due to what we got for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No surprise here, the hotel is clean, comfortable, nice lounge and restaurant. We used the spa services as well as the pool, sauna, and hot tub. The hotel is conveniently located if you don't mind walking a bit to get to the downtown shops and waterfront...maybe a half mile. For the mansion's probably 1.5 miles or so but nice scenery, and homes to look […] at along the way. I would definitely stay here again. We ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel Viking in March"
We stayed at Hotel Viking during off season (winter) and thus stayed in the hotel the entire time. It was very quiet and private. My only complaint about the room was it was a bit cool (for winter). We turned up the heat to 75 but it remained cooler than we would have preferred. The bed was warm and cozy. We used the indoor pool and hot tub, both excellent. […] We also had spa treatments which were fantastic. We ate in the restaurant both nights and had very good meals. Our waiter, Michael, was great. The filet was okay, slightly under seasoned, but the scallops and lamb were outstanding and the crab cakes some of the best we've had. I'd recommend this hotel to others.

"Bartendar/Bell Hop/Concierge/Front Desk?Waiters"
Everyone except a female bartender were excellent and accomodating. There was a female bartender that had a personality that is not consistant with the remainder of the staff.

"Beautiful, old-world, classy place!"
Off-season, this hotel is really quiet. The charm evokes a totally different era. My only complaint is that the air sanitizing machine in the room put out a smell that was slightly off-putting. Not big enough of a deal to complain to the front desk, though. The updated bathroom was quite elegant, and the bed was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
We booked this at the very last minute with no knowledge of Newport or hotels there. It was wonderful - the decor, the pleasant staff, the good live music at the bar of an evening. My only complaint - a small one at that - is that the bathroom was small.Genuine Expedia guest review
