My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Viking where they were kind enough to extend a military, police, service member discount. That was very impressive to us and the staff was SO kind and SO accommodating. The top of the Newport Bar/Deck was a highlight - great drinks and food. The room was beautiful, very tall ceilings, nicely decorated,...

Location of hotel was great. We had connecting rooms so not sure if this is a reflection of all rooms..Room itself was ok although A/C was very loud and when it turned on, it woke me up. Bathroom was strange layout as others mentioned but also, was not in great shape. The ceiling was peeling and grout was missing/cracked. When...

This large facility has the advantage of being in Newport. Several additions have made it a bit of a maze and you may walk quite a while to get to your room. Our room had an awkwardly split bathroom with a slow draining sink in a closet space and the toilet and bath in the other. When sitting on the...

We planned this overnight trip last night, and are a family of five with children aged 13, 10 and 6. The room was average - pretty decor, moderately comfortable beds, not very spacious for a two queen bed room. We were able to check in early, which we requested (traveled on a Wednesday), so this worked out well. The staff...

The hotel is older but very charming. We had a large and very clean room. The views are not great but we just used the room to change and to sleep. Water pressure not good the first day much better the second. Bed room not cleaned the second night and keys no longer worked. Breakfast very good but very slow....

The building is very old, old windows and you can tell it was built a long time ago. There was dropped ceiling tiles in the bathroom with some stains at the edges. But the room was clean. Decor was luxury from a long time ago. For example, the wooden chair had worn wooden arms but the fabric was not worn...

I was hoping to really like my first stay at the Hotel Viking, but it fell rather flat, and mediocre. After check-in on a Friday, we dropped by the virtually empty bar to grab a snack and drink before dinner later that evening. The bartender was very friendly and promptly took our order. Then we waited for about 35 minutes...

This is a lovely well appointed hotel in a great location. That said I thought a few things didn't differentiate it from a much lower class hotel. Valet parking $30 per night- in addition to your resort fee and rather pricey nightly stay seems a bit excessive. I feel like if you are going to charge - 3-400 per night...
