Booked two rooms at Hotel Viking On December 8 to visit the Newport Mansions. Upon checking other hotels in the area we decided to stay here. We arrived earlier than check in (4:00pm) and was told that only one of of rooms would be available and they would call us on our cell pho

From the outside the hotel looks lovely. Nice lobby, spacious and decorated sparingly for Christmas season. The best part of our stay was the valets. They were friendly and eager to help get our car. The room had a strange set up. The toilet was across the hall from the sink

I'm really trying to see the up-side. Convenient location. Historic building 90+ minutes after we were told to check in, for a room. Significantly over-booked? Bathrooms out of order. Primary elevators out of order. The rooms are acceptable. For all they could be the new owners a

The hotel is obviously aged but it is nice. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was very nice. Rooms were a little out of synch, for example, my shower door was difficult to open. Overall a great place to stay in historic Newport.

Donata, thank you for taking the time to review Hotel Viking. I am sorry to hear about some of the details of your stay. Unfortunately, we did have a problem with our boiler around the end of November and I am sorry that was not communicated properly and compensated correctly. I have shared your comments with our team and we will work hard to make sure this does not happen in the future. We appreciate you choosing Hotel Viking and hope you will stay with us again!

We were there at the end of June and really didn't see any signs of the renovations.

What does the $20 daily resort fee include? Are people who are attending a wedding and have reserved a room from ‘a block’ paying this fee in addition?
We just spent a weekend at the Viking for a wedding and also had a block of rooms. We paid the resort fee. Although we did not like/understand this fee at the time, we ended up utilizing the hotel amenities... and had fun with it. My advice is make sure you enjoy the little extras. The extra surprises WE enjoyed included house made marshmelllows and S'mores by the fire pits, including blankets, ice cream by the warm indoor pool at night, complementary water at check in. turn down service, and shuttle bus. We felt cared for.

Hi, just booked a few days and now skeptical after reading some poor reviews recently, in addition to the bedbug situation in 2016. Would you suggest steering clear of this place?
Thank you to all those that have responded. Please feel free to reach out to me directly when you are on property should I be able to assist in any way. The entire team looks forward to welcoming you to the Hotel Viking upon your arrival. Best regards, James Barrett General Manager

"Views on floors 3&4. Main lobby on floor #2."
"Beautiful but bring earplugs. The room's HVAC system is loud and the walls are thin."
"Higher rooms (floors 3/4) seen to offer best views"
"ask for the 2nd floor that is where the lobby is and no stairs are needed"
"Stay at the back of the hotel as it is quieter"
