Recent guests raved about the on-site spa and restaurant
Recent guests thought the guest rooms were a bit outdated
Just steps away from Newport's scenic harbor, Hotel Viking exudes a sense of Old World charm, combining period decor with luxurious accents like Egyptian-cotton bed linens and satin duvets. But this hotel isn't stuck in the past: Each room includes an LCD TV and complimentary Wi-Fi (included in the daily resort fee). Despite their high opinions of the room design, guests do warn that this hotel can be noisy. Hotel Viking wows with the award-winning wine lists and delectable bites offered at its premier restaurant, One Bellevue, not to mention the replenishing Newport-inspired spa treatments at SpaFjör.
