Hotel Viking

One of Rhode Island’s most historic hotels

Hotel Viking is an iconic Rhode Island hotel and is now part of the Historic Hotels of America group. The hotel opened its doors back in the 1920’s and perfectly captures the glamour and style of that era, with an impressive mock-Georgian facade and an elegant interior complete with Golden Age styling and furnishings. Enjoy award-winning fare at the One Bellevue dining room or take to the rooftop for drinks in style at the Top of Newport bar. Thanks to its central location, guests can reach The Breakers, Easton’s Beach and more in just a short drive and then retire of an evening to the elegant guest room for a great night’s sleep.

Hidden costly charges and noisy small room, would not recommend this hotel

The staff and valet was cordial and polite. However, the corner 3rd floor room was noisy, next to the ice machine and entrance to the roof top bar/room. No coffee maker in room and room service wanted to clean the room in the late afternoon. But most importantly, there were many hidden charges we found out at checkout. $40 per day valet parking service and a $30 per day hotel fee to use the pool and other amenities whether you wanted to use them or not. Better hotels and better rates in the area, last time staying at the Viking, overpriced, not clean, understaffed. Big waste of money for a small noisy room.

Great Hospitality

Ridgewood, New Jersey

Stayed at The Hotel Viking for a family wedding. The staff is outstanding. The food for lunch was delicious and the bar is a great place to meet for before or after the festivities. The rooms are very small but the amenities and cleanliness is top rate. The only downside, the do NOT carry Coca Cola products!
