Opened in 1926 and most recently renovated in 2007, the Hotel Viking is a historic Newport property with charming period details and subtle Nordic accents. Located on Bellevue Avenue, the upscale Hotel Viking is close to Newport’s famed mansions, the lively shops and restaurants on Thames Street, and the gorgeous Cliff Walk. With a large indoor pool, beautiful spa, and over 13,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel is ideal for any type of traveler, including families, couples, and those on business. Rooms are large with rich decor inspired by Newport’s Gilded Age, but bathrooms in the Newport wing are incredibly small. Though nightly rates tend to skyrocket in the summer months and there is a pesky nightly resort fee, staying at the Viking tends to be significantly cheaper than at other comparable options like the Castle Hill Inn or The Chanler at Cliff Walk, both of which are located on the water.
