I was very excited to stay here over the weekend on a quick trip with my sister. We had booked a room with two double beds and were excited to stay at a hotel that was part of the historic hotels of America. Once we arrived we were told there were no more double bed rooms available and that we'd be "upgraded" to a king. When we departed the check-in desk we were led down a long hallway (away from the original older part of the hotel) and went up 2 floors, From the elevator we actually had to go down a few steps to a long corridor. I immediately felt like I was in a motel at that moment. The room was smaller and sub par. My immediate view was the dumpsters outside the parking lot. The room was fine, clean enough yet soulless. the bathtub needs work and everything just felt small, like were at the back of the "real" hotel. Another 3rd addition to the hotel is a mid century dated corridor with more rooms at the back of the hotel - this part of the hotel is nowhere on the website. This is misleading,. and if they market the hotel this way they're going to get more and more complaints and bad reviews. All in all, their renovations were a mistake, at best this felt like a Hampton Inn. A beautiful new one at that, although the outside is gorgeous (NOT counting the newer added on mid century addition) the interior has been stripped of all what has made the building worth staying in. The restaurant on site had zero vibe at all, the bar was again, reminded me of a chain hotel. For what they charge (even on the off season) this place is not worth the money. There is nothing charming about it. As a frequent visitor of Newport, I will not be spending any more money at the Viking.

Hotel Viking is really pretty in the older section but the new section is difficult to get to. It's like a maze to get to your room. The rooms are very small and the bathroom set up is weird- the sink is across the hall from the bathroom. Beds are comfortable and the location is great.

Repeat guests to the hotel, friendly staff who go out of their way to accommodate and make guests feel comfortable. Close to downtown Newport, restaurants and bars. If you stay on a weekend, the brunch is awesome! My only suggestion is that the pool/spa area needs a little "TLC" some of the ceiling tiles were missing/dirty. Otherwise, the rooms are great

I was very disappointed in the cleaniness of our room. Upon entering I noticed a left over wrapper on the floor and some hair and garbage left in the shower. I believe the cleaning staff is either rushed or lazy and didnt take the necessary time or effort to ensure the room was properly cleaned. Rooms are not sound proof and a barking dog was very disruptive.

The hotel, although appearing quite lovely from the outside, is truly an amalgamation of bad ideas inside. Where to start…hmm…We arrived and were checked into a room that was already occupied. That was a foreshadowing of things to come. Twenty minutes later we were rebooked into what I’m assuming was a worse room in a wing of the hotel that is currently under construction. The rooms layout was poor (sink on one side of the entry door, bathtub and shower on the other) and the compact size of the bathroom would prevent anyone overweight from being able to use it. In addition, the walls in the room are paper thin. This became immediately apparent because the construction crews were still using power tools at 5 PM on a Sunday on the floor above ours, and it was unbelievably loud in our room. Luckily a power outage put an end to that. But now with no power we could clearly hear everyone in the hallway, and later that night, we got to hear “everything” from the room next door. And with the power restored a little after midnight the construction crew was back in action by 7 AM Monday morning making an unacceptable amount of noise. I would NEVER stay here again. No one should. To even consider renting out rooms to anyone while serious construction is in process shows just what little regard the hotel has for their guests. Return the favor and stay elsewhere.
