Newport’s Historic Hotel

The Hotel Viking opened to an awestruck public in May 1926. As a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America, our hotel in Newport holds a special place in history. From the clock above the Front Desk depicting ancient Nordic Runes to the original 1926 brass letter box in the Lobby, the hotel offers a wonderful combination of style, comfort and modern amenities.  Brimming with stories of famous dignitaries and celebrities, the Hotel Viking has offered gracious hospitality for over 80 years.
