"Pretty but buyer beware!"
Beautifully done, clean, centrally located, near to everything. Customer service was prompt, and very courteous. A few caveats: Restaurant is very expensive, when you reserve, find out what room you are in. I think that our room was in a separate back "wing" of the hotel, so it was a very far walk from the main entrance. Also, it was small, with toilet […] and shower in one room, and the sink across the way in another room! You also had to stretch across the room from the toilet to reach the toilet paper! The walls were also very thin, you heard people walking above you, and we had to call security one night for a very loud party in the next room. That's how we found out customer service was prompt! The swimming pool was beautiful but the Jacuzzi was small, and they were both taken over by a whole family (not the hotel's fault, I guess.) For a luxury hotel, our experience was not luxe.

"Nice hotel in Newport, RI"
Our family stayed in two room types. The rooms with two beds are great--spacious and nicely-decorated. The rooms with king bed, however, are very small. The staff were great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice very central hotel - on the expensive side"
Everything was great. Of course, this is Newport and everything is expensive. Hard to complain given the location, comfort, cleanliness, friendly staff, valet, etc etc etcGenuine Expedia guest review

"Upscale Newport Hotel"
We enjoyed our stay at the Viking. Friendly and knowledgeable staff as well as a nicely decorated facility and room. Valet parking guys were awesome, started pouring down rain and they never flinched, just kept plugging along. Great Job! Nice Hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Hotel Viking - A Noble House Hotel Thank you for your review. Our facility and staff are what make the Viking so special. Please visit us again some time. We look forward to see you in the future.
Very small rooms with claustrophobic bathroom (regular king room).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel is close to downtown Newport and walkable to some of the Mansions and Cliff Walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel with great service"
Overall it was a very good hotel with very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room we had (a Queen estate corner room with a nice view) was pretty tight and the bathroom door was glass so it shone brightly at night if one of us used the bathroom. But the furnishings were very tasteful, and the room was […] kept spotless--wonderful housekeeping service! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our Favorite in Newport!"
The Viking is, without a doubt, our favorite hotel in Newport! As a former resident of Newport, we love the location of the Hotel Viking...an easy walk to everything that's awesome about Newport. If you can't live here, the Hotel Viking is the next best thing!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by The Hotel Viking - A Noble House Hotel Thank you for your wonderful comments. As a former resident of Newport, we are honored to be your hotel of choice when you return to town. Please come again soon!
Hotel is very nice. Older building but in great shape. Parking is very expensive-- you can find parking very close if you look around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, tiny room"
The location of Hotel Viking is very convenient, easy walk to downtown Newport and to nearby restaurants and shops. Recommend taking a car to see the mansions. The hotel room was tiny, even for my standards (I'm a 5'2" female @ 106lbs). The bathroom is even smaller, it reminded me of the bathrooms in cruise cabins. The TV doesn't have any channels you […] can watch, it's all on demand. The walls are very thin, you can clearly hear your neighbors. But we weren't in the room most of the time except to sleep so it wasn't too bad. Hotel staff was very accomodating. I recommend visiting the Newport Creamery about 5 blocks from the hotel, it's a cute diner w various types of ice cream desserts at a very good price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Traditional & Classic"
Friendly, comfortable and easy walk to restaurants and Cliff Walk. Check out cost of parking for in season to avoid surprises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Class and Elegance!"
The Viking hotel is historical and beautiful. The restuarant has a great food but pricey. The only thing i didn't like is the noises can be heard from upper floor and people walking in the hallway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was OK until we tried to go to sleep. First the room was 75 degrees and we could not get the air to work properly. Maintenance came to our room at 2:00 AM and got the AC working. The units sounded like tow boat motors...So loud and they did not work properly as the room did not cool off at all. Would loom elsewhere next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
Booked a room with king bed and got a full or queen, very small. Room was tiny for 145.00 a night. Mirror in bathroom was good if you were 4 feet tall. No water available to guest 6 or 7 dollars a bottle. We went to the bar to have a quiet drink and an something to eat, and were invaded by a wedding party. There were only three guests at the bar at […] the time and were left hanging, 20 min later no food, no drink, the wedding was the priority not the other guest. we asked for our check and cancelled food and left. The next night we figured we would give it another try, we were just ignored, had to go to the front desk, and still no service. The Marriott is a much better value, free parking and better access to everything. Not impressed ! Stay by the water, it's cheaper and better ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Such a wonderful weekend get-away"
This hotel was wonderful for a long weekend get-away. I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff is. The concierge Eric was so helpful and made a note it was a boyfriends birthday. All the staff wished him a happy birthday and complimentary cupcakes were left in our room. I cant say enough wonderful things about this hotel and will absolutely […] stay there again in the future. On a separate note - the hotel is so conveniently centrally located - you can walk to everything and don't need your car. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for everyone!"
It was my second time staying at the Hotel Viking. I love the convenience of this hotel as you can walk everywhere - the property itself is historic, wonderfully maintained. The rooms also have free wifi. The valet cost of $32 is a little much but you can park in self parking for free right across the street and I think $3.70 for a glass of sprite […] is a little high - other than that would highly recommend!

"My wife's birthday"
Not happy with front desk or service people. My room key would not work the 2nd day and when I went to have it fixed we were told it was because of its proximity to my cell phone in my pocket. A lie since the second key which I had left in the room since check-in didnt work either indicating they were turned off probably because earlier housekeeping […] had tried to enter my room even though I had the do not disturb sign out and I yelled at the woman. When we called later in the week to ask about charges seen on my charge card my wife was discourteously treated by a Nate after being bounced around on the phone for 20 minutes. This venue doesn't have to worry though because we will never return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay in a convenient location"
Great hotel, conveniently located with short walk to the harbour, Wasgington Sq and Bellevue Avenue attractions. Small but well equipped gym. Visit in a spa highly recommended. I will definitely come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very comfortable, the mattress was so wonderful I wanted to sleep all day. I wish they had complementary water bottles, however the water from the tap was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We would definatly return"

Hotel staff was nice and accommodating. We requested late check out but unfortunately the hotel was full and we could not keep our room as late as we wanted.

"Needs parking, otherwise a true gem."
Beautiful hotel, comfortable, etc. and the surrounding area is very charming. However, if you're driving, you should budget an additional $15 for either valet, or public parking around the corner, both $15.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A very exquisite stay in Newport!"
loved loved loved it !!! The hotel had a nice historic feel to it, rooms were clean nice marble floor in the bathroom ! We were literally two blocks away from Thames street overal it was the best !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price."
Table lamp next to one side of bed had no visible outlet to plug into, therefore was unusable. There was only one othere light in a dark room. An automatic $15.00 valet parking service was not disclosed beforehand in hotel room description. Our car was never driven or moved by the valet. All he did was hold our keys for 30 minutes. The bathroom was […] very tiny and the sink was so small one couldnt was without splashing water on oneself. We are still waiting to resolve the extra $80.00 charge to our bill after we had prepaid the room fee on line ahead of time, and used none of the other services. The stay was not worth the fee. The staff was pleasant and friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

We checked in on a Friday night and found no heat in our room. We needed to be moved twice (first time they gave us a room with a double bed when we paid for an upgrade).
