Memorable Hospitality Since 1926

Located atop downtown Newport’s Historic Hill neighborhood, Hotel Viking opened to an awestruck public almost a century ago. As a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America, our Newport, RI luxury hotel holds a special place in history. From the original key boxes located behind the front desk, to the 1926 brass letterbox in the Lobby, the hotel offers a wonderful combination of style, comfort, and modern amenities.

More than a building or a name, we are an iconic and important landmark in the Newport landscape. We are inspired by and committed to the unique experiences for our guests: past, present, and future.
