I travel a lot for work. I’d heard about this hotel & jumped at the chance to stay here overnight (Th-F) when a business opportunity took me to Newport. Color me shocked to discover that the rates were compliant with our travel policy. However, that was BEFORE the $30 ‘fee’ (for

We were there at the end of June and really didn't see any signs of the renovations.

We just spent a weekend at the Viking for a wedding and also had a block of rooms. We paid the resort fee. Although we did not like/understand this fee at the time, we ended up utilizing the hotel amenities... and had fun with it. My advice is make sure you enjoy the little extras. The extra surprises WE enjoyed included house made marshmelllows and S'mores by the fire pits, including blankets, ice cream by the warm indoor pool at night, complementary water at check in. turn down service, and shuttle bus. We felt cared for.

"Rooms are small"
"We were at the end of the first floor which has steps to navigate your luggage--not ideal"
"Beware of the "resort fee.""
"I was on the second floor-DO NOT stay there-!! HAD to walk outside to go to the pool and had to carry my luggage up and down stairs!"
"Always easiest to call and let the very friendly staff know what you are looking for"
US$115 - US$496 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
