Hotel Viking

Rhode Island, New England

The hotel

The Viking opened its doors to the public in the roaring 20s and has since played host to a multitude of guests, including famous dignitaries and celebrities. You’ll feel pretty special too from the moment you arrive, revelling in its unique blend of style, comfort and modern amenities. There’s an indoor pool to splash about in or head to SpaFjor where exotic Balinese Spa experiences and Thai body rituals are combined to banish everyday cares. The Top of Newport Bar is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail – Peachy Keen anyone, or a Sailor’s Delight? You can accompany it with the ever popular Lobsta’ Roll or a selection of fresh oysters, shrimps and clams. For more delightful eats but this time in a more formal setting, head to One Bellevue – the Garden Patio is much sought after in the warmer months with coveted views of world-famous Bellevue Avenue.

The valet service was very friendly as was the desk staff. There was construction during our stay and they began first thing Sunday morning. The room was nice but the bathroom was tiny. Would stay again...maybe when they weren't having construction.

We have 2 little kids and everyone was so helpful! We were able to leave our car there after checkout and continue our day and go back and get our car when it was time for us to leave. We needed to change our check in date and were extremely helpful we will be back for sure! Thank you!

Stayed at the Viking last night and it was wonderful. Room was beautiful. The staff was lovely and helpful. We walked down to Brick Alley Pub and had dinner. Close to everything. We will be back for a quick getaway again.
