The only thing I can the suites are weird with two little rooms oddly connected. The second room was a waste. No bathroom sink mirror (that was a first) so hard to shave at a minimum. Its just weird and its kind of expensive to boot. The location is good not great. The bar is nice. Breakfast took forever. Elevators...

The Hotel Viking is ideally located. The rooms are beautifully traditional yet have modern conveniences. We enjoyed the pool and spa, the quick walks to the waterfront, and the peaceful setting of our room. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Newport and will return again.

We absolutely believe all guests should be provided with guest service above and beyond the norm - and we enjoy knowing we can and do our best to make a difference. Your enthusiasm is contagious describing your stay. Understated elegance is portrayed throughout the entire hotel. You will be in for a special treat upon your return when you book...

The Hotel Viking definitely meets the test of Location, Location, Location. Located at One Bellevue Avenue it is a short 2 block walk from the Art Musuem, a downhill 3 block walk to Bannister and Bowen's Wharfs, and numerous restaurants and shops. Parking is by Valet only. The hotel is fronted by a porch with rocking chairs (!), beautiful blooming...

Stayed at the viking hotel in Newport Rhode Island for two nights. Hotel is approximately two blocks from the waterfront which has the advantage of being far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to restaurants and the sailing etc. Hotel is old but the rooms are renovated. There are elevators but some of the...

Extremely comfortable beds and perfect location. It's right on Bellevue and walking distance to Thames Street, restaurants and the mansions. I self-parked because there is a parking fee. Also, beware of the $30 hotel charge!

From even before we checked in the staff at the hotel were wonderful. Our trip is for our Silver Wedding Anniversary and the recommendation of the Castle Inn for a meal was out of this world.

Came here recently for a Saturday wedding. We did not stay here thankfully as if the valet parking attendants are this poor I am not certain about the other employees.

The whole hotel feels good from walking through the door to check out. Our room was so nice it was a pleasure to come back to. The furnishings in the room were top quality and could imagine myself looking for similar items. The lifts were a bit slow - but that's the only negative thing I can say!

If you're looking for a sleek, modern hotel you'll have to look elsewhere. This hotel has an antique feel and decor consistent with Newport. Not right on the waterfront but easily within walking distance to shops and restaurants, plus quieter location. Very pleased and will stay again!
