wonderful location in Newport

Posted May 28, 2015
Pros: Location and very comfortable room. We had a beautiful sunset the first night. We cuddled on the bed and watched the dusky sun paint the sky.
Cons: The valet parking attendents rushed my husband when we arrived. I think that they were excited to have a guest. But I forgot to tell him about valets
Location: The cliff walk is 10 mintues away. The wharf and docks are four block down the hill. The hotel is actaully on the historical tour.
Wheather you want to go to the Wharf or the cliff walk -it is a 10 minuts walk or so. The hotel was in a perfect location and very easy to find. It was three blocks up from the highest church steple so you could not get turnaruond to much.

Extremely small room

Posted May 26, 2015
The king size bed took up the entire room. The bathroom was tiny. They upgraded is to a king size bed instead of a queen, but I would have rather had the queen. Barely any room to walk around it.

I really disliked the shampoo/soap dispenser in the shower. It felt like a motel 6. Also the design of the bathrooms are weird. The location was great and the staff were very friendly.

Great location

Posted Apr 14, 2015
Great location for walking around town but far enough away to be quiet. Like the history of the hotel. Staff was very nice and helpful.

Location: Great location
We spent Easter weekend at The Hotel Viking. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was very pretty. Our room ( 308 ) King. was clean, attractive and comfortable. We were visiting family in town, so we really only slept there. FYI....we were billed, after the fact, a daily spa charge ( there is an indoor pool and spa facilities that we never used ) of 15$.. We were also charge 30$/day for parking! So, add an additional $45.00/ day to your bill!

Thank you for visiting us over the holiday weekend. Our associates are always glad to know when their efforts were appreciated and it is wonderful that you enjoyed your clean, comfortable guest room. We do regret if any of our charges were a surprise for you, however. It is never our intent for guests to feel misled in any way. Our resort charge entitles guests to full use of our fitness facilities and indoor pool, wireless Internet and more. While we do charge for parking, many guests appreciate the convenience our Valet provides. We hope for your next trip the area we will see you again.

Pros: Even though the room was small it was very up to date and pleasing. You would expect that type of elegance for the price we paid.
I picked the hotel at a moments notice while we were traveling. Didn't know the area so I went on line and got more than I expected.
