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.

A night's stay in a grand and newly renovated hotel.

Newport, Rhode Island

Having lived in Newport for many years, I didn't usually stay in its hotels. We received a night's stay at the Viking for a Christmas gift. We are very lucky. The hotel was renovated a while ago and the renovations are wonderful. Our room was large and well decorated. We checked in, went to dinner downtown, another Christmas gift card and could not wait to get back to the hotel after dinner. We walked, its easy to get around town from the hotel by walking and since the weather was mild for January, we did just that. Live music in the lounge, drinks and even better, S'mores on the outside patio. Two fire pits, a fire place and chairs not to mention the fixens buffet. We sat outside, enjoyed the S'mores and back to the entertainment and drinks. The bed was very comfortable. My wife attended a yoga class in the morning followed by an easy checkout. A great resort. We didn't go in the pool but did see people using it.
