TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I booked this Hotel for the weekend of a family members wedding, The reviews I read were wonderful so I was convinced spending over $400 a night for a hotel room would be well worth it, Boy was I wrong. The front desk and valet were wonderful, very friendly, very efficient. My room was on the first floor, it smelled of a musty odor, the ceiling in the teeny bathroom was peeling (Moisture?). There was no do not disturb sign to be found, the first morning as I was leaving for the day, I saw the maid in the room a few away from mine and told her that her services were not needed today but I could not find the sign, she nodded and mumbled something, I said ok? She responded ok. Upon my return that afternoon, the maid had made a visit...... annoyed! The second day upon returning to my room late morning I found the maid cart next door and my room wide open, I sat on the chair for approx ten minutes to see if she would show her face, Nope... My room wide open to the public. Friday night on our return from the wedding we attended down the road, ;I went to the lobby bar to order a drink to join my friends and family in the bar area, bartender said sorry Bar is closed, this was at 1230 am, I was just disappointed that I missed out while others in the lobby area were enjoying a nightcap. The walls are super thin in the rooms, I can tell you all about the couple statyng next door to me, I was disappointed considering the cost.

I spent two nights (a required minimum) at Hotel Viking for an October wedding. The hotel claimed that this was still the "summer season" so I paid an unruly amount for two nights when it was ~60 degrees. The walls were paper thin (i.e. you will hear your upstairs neighbors in the middle of the night...). The bed was incredibly uncomfortable. The bathroom and the overall hotel was nice but it was NOT worth the price. I would recommend finding a cozy bed and breakfast or hotel elsewhere.

We had a lovely room and excellent service. The doormen/valets were friendly and welcoming every time we returned. Convenient for sightseeing especially on foot. Delicious scallops in the restaurant. Too bad their roof top bar was closed for the season.

My wife and I stayed here recently, we had a good time in Newport and the hotel is in a great location to get around. Food was good for lunch and breakfast, plenty of space to sit, deck and bar on roof was a plus to have ( not a clear view of water). We had a few spa treatments, staff and service was great. Given that we expected a really nice place for $800+ a night, our feedback is the suites are not worth it and very outdated, some only have standup showers. The hot tub is barely maintained ,full of grime and not filled properly. This hotel has changed ownership in the last few years and lost value, so there is hope new owner will upgrade but going to be a long road back.

I've had a read-through of recent reviews and recognise every problem during our own three day stay. But, nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves and found staff helpful and understanding. The hotel - which looks elegant from the outside - is, indeed, in a perfect location for both the graceful Bellevue Avenue and the waterfront. But the fundamental problem is that it was built in 1926 and so many things are going wrong. We also suffered air conditioning breakdowns and practically roasted for one night (which was removed from the bill). The bathrooms are small. The storage space in the room is limited. The gloomy decor, away from smarter and brighter public areas, looks from another age. It probably looked splendid back in 1953 when most of the Kennedy family stayed, prior to the wedding of JFK and Jackie in St Mary's Church, a few streets away. We were moved to another suite and admired the efforts to make us comfortable. Short of spending tens of millions on a refit, the problems are insurmountable. And, yes, the prices are high considering the standard that is being offered. But we will remember our time in Newport fondly and the attitude of the staff with warmth.
