So much fun!!!
When we got there they had s’mores outside at fire tables and a poolside ice cream social. The valet parking was only $20. Because they had to switch our room they upgraded us and waved the resort fee. There was plenty of staff and they were wonderful. The hotel was clean and updated.
The weird bed jet!
The location is nice and the building is charming and beautiful.
The front desk staff was very snooty. My husband and I tried multiple times to use the pool and/or hot tub but were unable to because there was no room. Every time we checked, it was packed full with screaming children jumping in and splashing those in the hot tub.
It's okay. Nothing extraordinary.
The people working there are very nice. Constantly opening doors etc.
Sneaky hidden "resort" fee. This is NOT a resort. If you're going to tack on an extra $50 at check out that you hid from your fees then you need to have much nicer facilities. The workout room was small. The pool had carpet around it and was too cold to use. The beds were VERY creaky and could be heard all night long when the people upstairs got out of bed to use the restroom etc. the rooms were clean enough, not super, but I wouldn't put my baby in that bathtub that's for sure.
The Viking Hotel is in a perfect location. You can walk to all of the attractions. The staff was courteous and took care of all of our needs.
The bathroom was tiny.
Great location and luxury appeal.
Seems that the luxury only goes to the higher end rooms and more public places. The public bathroom in the hotel was 3 times more amazing than the one in our room.
Location was great, close to shopping and Downtown.
Requested a king size bed, but got a queen sized bed. There were only 2 queen rooms, and we got one b/c of our length of stay?? Sink did not drain the first day, but was fixed. There was no electrical outlet in the bathroom, had to use the hairdryer out in the bedroom, but had to plug it in under the desk, so I was not able to stand and dry my hair. Wallpaper in the bathroom was lifting. The bed was not comfortable. Advertised that there were pillow top mattresses, ours was definitely not a pillow top and it was quite flat. There was no refrigerator in the room, coffee maker was old and outdated. I have been in far cheaper rooms that provided a keurig and nicer coffee provisions. Powdered creamer in a packet was gross. Overall, it was fairly disappointing for the $500.00 per night rate.
I thought the staff was very friendly. There was an upbeat vibe in lobby. The location was great. Easy to walk everywhere from the hotel.
Didn't like that I had to valet park my car. My final bill was $130 more than I agreed to because of extra fees. There was an extra resort fee and the parking was expensive. Mattress was very old and uncomfortable.
This is a lovely hotel in the middle of a historic district with an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Hotel staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We had a great time in Newport.
All the extra charges. There is an extra $35 nite fee for parking. That should be included for people who stay.
Romantic ambiance, tad worn
Excellent location near action in Newport. Pleasant old hotel ambiance, though most of hotel is 1960's construction, well disguised behind original hotel facade.
Parking fee extreme ($35 per day about 25% of room rate). Tub in room was nasty, no one would consider soaking in it, ok for shower. Wall behind tile in shower clearly water damaged with tile buckling and uneven with stained grout. No doubt hiding serious mold problem behind tile. Not so serious that I thought I needed flip flops for shower, but clearly showing neglect.
Wish we had stayed longer...
Beautiful suite with a walk-in shower and bear-clawed tub, nice views and a friendly, professional staff.
Not replacing the in-room coffee and the $35 a day valet parking are little things that irritate.
great location, hidden costs
Very close/walkable to all.
Hidden costs - parking, facilities.... Its an additional $15 a day for each. This is not clear in the post.
