  • Great hotel - great location - great town

    Throughly enjoyed our time at The Viking. It has all the modern conveniences one would come to expect accompanied with abundant charms of a early 1900's historic location. Can't help but appreciate the wonderful history of The Viking walking through the halls.

  • Good bones, welcoming hospitality.

    We stayed at The Viking for a family wedding in November (Thanksgiving weekend). They did an exceptional job with the reception and banquet following the wedding.

    What follows are my thoughts on the hotel proper. The room we had was large and the bed comfortable. However the shower amenities (on the wall and one had to press a lever for body wash, shampoo or conditioner. A personal pet peeve of mine is this type of arrangement.

    I consider it an inexpensive way for a hotel to provide shower amenities - and unhygienic at best. Not the best way to start one's day.

    An easy recommendation is to bring one's soap to the hotel, along with shampoo and conditioner.

    But for this, my recommendation would have been 'very good'. A shame to lose out on the rating, but it also seems to be a way for more and more hotels to shave pennies at their guests' expense.

  • Excellent Room

    The room we reserved was not available at check in, so we received an upgrade to a suite. It was a beautiful room to entertain our friends we were traveling with. The staff was very accommodating, and the location was excellent.

  • "...old world charm, with an updated interior"

    we love to travel in the offseason and NEwport was perfect for a one night getaway...Elaine at the front desk was great; very friendly, not too pushy, even got us an upgrade with our 42nd anniversary that week.The suite was perfect, couch and table with chairs in one room, king size bed in the other with a 55"TV in both rooms; I felt like I was on the field watching the football game!!! Staff was very attentive, just an all around great one night stand....

  • Costly, but a really nice stay

    I went to Hotel Viking on my recent trip to Rhode Island. I was a little put off by the price, but it was a group trip for a wedding and everyone wanted to go there so I bit the bullet and went along with it. The hotel is expensive, but it is pretty amazing. It is centrally located in downtown New Port and close to the water, and the hotel is older but extremely well maintained. The hotel was very clean and everyone on the staff could not have been more friendly and nice. Our room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The pillow top bed was really nice, and I loved the large flat screen tv. There is a restaurant and bar in the hotel--also pretty steep price wise but the food is very good. The hotel was all decked out for Christmas and looked beautiful. They have a nice pool and sauna as well as a gym on the premises which was also a great plus. They have valet parking which I appreciated since it was in the downtown area so I never had to worry about parking my car there. The valets were also very friendly and professional. My biggest gripe is the cost. I was frustrated that they had two tiers of internet--regular free and a special 'premium' internet which cost an additional $10 a day. We also have to pay $15 a day for the valet parking. I just felt for the price we paid her room we should get those included. Most hotels offer free high speed internet, so paying an additional 10 a day for that felt like a rip off. But over all it was a really nice stay in an awesome hotel. Just expect the pay a lot.
