Excellent curbside greeting. Lobby is nice. Our room was on lobby floor (floor 2). On general appearance, it was ok. However, beds ended up being hard and noisy when turning. Bathroom is old and divided ( sink is across entry hall from toilet and shower). Not ideal. Finally, we heard floor creaking from guest room directly above on floor 3. I would not stay here again considering cost for room. I have to say, location can't be beat. That is the best part.

My favorite place to stay in Newport!

My wife and I go to Newport every other year and try to experience different hotels/inns. The boat show made availability a challenge so we were happy to get a chance to visit hotel Viking for a second time.

The hotel is a wonderful historic property with lots of amenities: The staff is very welcoming and eager to assist. The lobby is bright and open, offering complementary coffee in the morning and ice cold water in the afternoon. We arrived early and were able to get into one of our rooms around Noon so we did not have to check bags or wait. After a full day of sailing, eating, drinking and lots of walking it was great to sit fireside and have a night cap before turning in.

I think the location is perfect: An easy stroll to the tennis hall of fame, cliff walk and the action on Thames Street.

It will be hard to stray to another hotel when we return to Newport.

Pleasant stay room large, comfortable beds . Unusual arrangement with bathrooms though. Shower and toilet in one room and vanity and hand basin in another. Confusing in the middle of the night. Buffet breakfast only average

Although I am slacking on reviewing, I feel this hotel deserves its 5 stars.

We came for one night as part of a honeymoon traveling week, and we are so glad we did.

The room was old fashioned and well kept, and awesome.

After we ate dinner and toured the area, we came back to a card and chocolate strawberries, and a bottle of wine. Without even asking.

Their customer service was excellent, and is a recommended stay!

A beautiful hotel with all the amenities you could hope for, rooftop bar, great lunch / dinner specials coupled with very friendly staff make this hotel a must. The spa is beautiful. Indoor pool available. Firepits to sit near at night. The food at the "Top of Newport" was very good. We were upgraded to a suite that was BEAUTIFUL, clawfoot tub with standing shower, sofa and sitting areas. It really was very nice, keeping the historic charm of the area alive.

The location is a few blocks away from the harbor but is just a quick walk down church street and near a lot of shopping and cafes.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the "original" part of the hotel.
