This could be a great hotel. It's let down by the extra charges and the disinterested staff. We were greeted by the valet when we pulled up, he held out his hands for the car keys -no question did we want to self park or mention of charges ($35 per night), this was only pointed out when we got to...

I reviewed my stay here one year ago same time of year with a perfect score and raving reviews. This year is not the same. I see this as a wonderful hotel for a short stay in Newport unless you are staying the same night there is a wedding or a wedding party that parties well into the wee hours....

Visited Hotel Viking with my husband for our 10 year anniversary. I wanted an inn or b&b feel and this definitely fit the bill. I also wanted a hotel w/ all the amenities and Hotel Viking did it again. Walking in the lobby is really beautiful. So pretty and bright.

The room was comfortable, however it was not sound proof. If you're looking to sleep in, forget it. Every step overhead, every toilet flush, every shower taken and every passer by in the hall could be heard. The view from a good majority of the rooms is the parking lot. There were endless fees added to the bill. Parking is...

I really thought about booking one of the hotels on the waterfront, thinking we would be closer to restaurants, attractions etc. So glad we choose the Viking instead. It was only a short walk to the waterfront and was in fact very close to all the attractions. The real bonus was the hotel itself and the staff. Lovely room (...
