Thought we got a great deal on a one night stay until we checked out and found out about the $25 "resort fee". There were no amenities in this hotel to justify the fee, and the hotel is hardly a resort. The room was so hot we had to turn on the AC (it was cold outside but our windows did not open). The bathroom was tiny with a peeling ceiling and rust stains in the tub and toilet. The beds were old, squeaky and springy, with linens so starched they felt like we were sleeping in a paper bag. The hotel was renovating (badly needed) so the hallways and the one working elevator smelled like paint and were covered with dust. Carpets in the hallways were filthy. Sweaty workmen everywhere in the hallways openly stared at my 14 year old daughter. She was so uncomfortable she actually held my hand! The pool was okay, but the changing room showers were tiny plastic affairs with a trickle of lukewarm water. The hot tub smelled like fermenting grain...something growing in there? The sink faucets in the pool changing room were not even attached to the counter securely, I could wiggle them around. The whole place had a run down feeling to it...not the grand hotel in the pictures. Skip it.

The resort fee as a hidden tax (you dont really get anything out of it than any hotel would not offer- not even free bottled water) The room is tiny & nicely decorated. - It was way too hot in the room and no way to open the windows - 73/74. Managed to turn off the heater and temperature would finally go down to an acceptable level to allow for some sleep (69/70). Staff is very friendly - allowed for a late check out (even though we did not use it) Bath room is great - nice big shower. it is average++

Did not reserve. Got a quote, but when tried to book I was notified that the PRICE did not include a $25/day 'mandatory resort fee.' So I called to see what I could expect with the resort fee: that 'free WiFi' is free with the resort fee. The hotel amenities (coffee maker in room, welcome receptions and socials, Yoga, Newspapers in lobby, shuttle service, access to pool and health center, beach towels, shoe shine, crib, rollaways, fridge, and local phone calls) are all paid for by the mandatory resort fee. In other hotels, this is part of the price. But, even if you only want the room and the shower (which seems to be what is included in the price) you still have to pay the resort fee. This nonsense used to be a Vegas and actual resort phenomenon, but it seems Newport has adopted this insulting trend. I stay at a lot of hotels around the US, Europe and Africa and when I get quoted a price, it pays for all the amenities and if I choose to purchase something extra, I pay for it. This tack on fee is an insult.

Just checked into our hotel and I must say, we are sadly disppointed. This hotel used to be such a beautiful hotel and now I can honestly say that this hotel is a 2 star. The lobby is unwelcoming and cold. Total lack of ambiance. The room is too small. The noise outside our CLOSED windows is beyond annoying. We can hear every truck and car go by. Shocked to find there was no fridge in the room as well. The girl at the front desk ( who was cheerful) promptly sent one up to us though. The king bed does not seem like a true king. We spent the night last night at another hotel on Thames Street in a large suite no less, and that place blows this one out of the water ! Not to mention it was 1/2 the price of this one and included free parking and breakfast! We wanted to stay another night but for the price we will go elsewhere. The one good thing is there is a large TV which has Netflix. Oh lastly, the heating/ac unit is SO loud as well. We won't sleep a wink tonight for sure between that and the traffic. Ending on a positive note, I will say the staff is very nice!

The Viking is an elegant old hotel from an era past. Good location, super friendly, professional staff that makes you feel like a celebrity. Great place to visit with a large group of friends or just a date.
