For the bride and groom who want to hold their nuptials at a place steeped in history and New England character, Hotel Viking shines as the ideal location to accommodate their wishes. It is rare to find an elegant chapel dating from 1869 located on the site of a luxurious hotel property, but Hotel Viking has historic Newport Kay Chapel on its premises. The chapel features stained glass and hand-carved woodwork, and accommodates up to 225 guests.

All wedding spaces at Hotel Viking are elegantly complete with gilt-gold mirrors, 19th century artwork, opulent furnishings and carpets, and modern splendor. The Bellevue and Viking Ballrooms provide 13,400 square feet of event space that can be flexibly divided and used for a rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, reception, after party and day-after brunch, luncheon or bon voyage party. Easy access from the event areas to Hotel Viking’s center courtyard gives the wedding party an additional site for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres service, dessert stations and photo opportunities. Seasonal outdoor dining space at One Bellevue restaurant overlooking charming Bellevue Avenue and the Historic Hill district is another option for wedding festivities.

Wedding guests will want to relax in one of Hotel Viking’s 209 beautifully appointed guestrooms or suites, including the newly renovated 10 Mansion Suites and two specialty suites in the Viking Wing. Spending the first night of wedded bliss in the fabulous Breakers Suite is a glorious way for a couple to start their life together.

This 83-year-old boutique hotel is a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America and is prominently located at One Bellevue Avenue – offering the wedding couple and their guests convenient access to all that Newport, Rhode Island has to offer – the breathtaking Newport Harbor and Waterfront (ideal for photo ops); wonderful galleries, antique shops and boutiques; picturesque walks and beaches; museums and historic sights; all kinds of sports and entertainment attractions; and, of course, the Gilded Age summer homes of the rich and famous of yesteryear.
