A wonderful property with an atmosphere reminiscent of the good old days, yet with all the amenities and comfort required for today’s travels. The staff is wonderful, efficient, friendly and there when you need them. I highly recommend The Viking!!

Hotel Viking is an excellent location for visiting Newport RI. I've stayed several times and since my last visit there were some needed renovations - and I believe they are under new /different management. The changes are have lifted this hotel from a 3 rating (a couple of years ago) to me giving them an excellent. My one complaint is that in the bathrooms, instead of little bottles and bars of soap they use large (refillable) pump bottles. This hotel is not cheap, so I would expect that this wouldn't be the one place they would cut costs. If nothing else, they should give a bar of soap. I prefer my workout in the gym, not in shower trying to pump out enough Bath Gel just to get clean.

I share many other reviewers' dismay with this hotel. We only stayed one night as we were awakened quite early to the sound of construction down the hall. Although we arrived very late in the evening and checked out early, we were nevertheless, charged an extra $25 "resort fee" and $40 for parking. I suppose hotels can charge whatever the market will bear, but next time I'll stay somewhere else.

I had reserved a suite because I was traveling with my daughter and a friend of hers, so that the friend had some privacy. I reserved it weeks ahead calling directly to the hotel. It never occurred to me to ask if the room had plenty of light: the sample picture for this type of room in the hotel’s website had large windows and seemed flooded with light. Ours was a “Bellevue Suite”, which did not do justice to its name and made the whole thing more ironic. The arrival at the hotel can be deceiving: it has the nice charm of old establishments, with a very friendly and effective valet parking service, a plus in the hotel, although sometimes unnecessary and, for $40, over priced. The receptionists were mostly friendly and tried to be helpful. And that was about it. Once you are checked in, you are left on your own to try to find your way through the never ending corridors, full of steps up, then some more steps down, with confusing elevators that lead you to back entrances, never on a clear path with instructions. When we finally made it to our room, I was speechless. The living room area, dark and gloomy, had no window. It lead to the master bedroom through a glass door with no curtain (hence no privacy), I suppose in an effort to gain some natural light; a difficult task indeed, since the only one in the entire suite was coming from a very narrow (possibly 12 inches) window positioned in the very corner of the bedroom, and was facing a very grey looking parking lot of the hotel. I would have never paid so much for such a sad and dreary room, had I known. I asked right away to reception to be moved, but the reply was that they did not have any other room available. I will not get into details of how boringly furnished the room was, how noisy the corridors were, and how uninviting the whole place is. Not only the photos in the website were deceiving, but the description of what was included made the experience more infuriating, as if to perpetuate the irony, like the “Gourmet Honor Basket”, which contained four individual servings of ground coffee, deceivingly placed right next to another offering with more appealing items, water bottles, nuts, chocolate,…for which of course we were charged. I don’t like misleading websites that make me feel cheated. I complained respectfully and my bill was reduced, and for that I truly thank the manager who took care of it. Restaurant service friendly; food was good; the pool has a very moldy looking carpet.

We have stayed at the Viking in the past and enjoyed our stay. Not this time. We arrived to construction and debris all over the hallway. It was like navigating an obstacle course. Front desk staff are so rude and unwelcoming. We arrived at 4pm to our room not ready but we will text you. About 1 hour later we arrived in our room that was decent but we were awakened at 9:30 am on Sunday to drilling, hammering, banging and construction workers all over the place. We were supposed to stay another night but the noise was unbearable. You could not have done construction during the week?? Or better yet in the winter months when business is not that busy!???? The staff at the front desk could care less that we were upset. And to top it off we got charged the incorrect amount of what we made the reservation for. $175 more than what was quoted. Avoid this place
