The hotel staff and service was excellent. Generally they tried their best. Was not perfect as I think they were understaffed on night but they did comp my parking the next day.
Also I left a baby blanket that my son was really attached to and they fedexed it to me right away! That was really nice as My son is seriously attached to that blanket!
My daughter and I recently enjoyed a delightful Easter weekend at the Hotel Viking. Many thanks to the Hotel Manager, Mark Fischer, and his staff for ensuring a problem-free stay. The facility is ideally located in Newport, charmingly appointed, and in general a delicious taste of New England. The nearby activities (mansions, winery, shopping) guaranteed a fun weekend which culminated in a delicious Easter brunch. We look forward to another visit soon!
