  • First and foremost let me say that our day was beautiful, and the employees (special shout out to Carlington!) who served us that night, as well as the valet staff, were EXCEPTIONAL. Management, however, is an entirely different story. Our coordinator was switched 3/4 of the way through the process, and while our second coordinator, Linda, was good, she ruffled my husbands feathers more than once throughout the process. She approached both of us, separately, lamenting that there had been complaints of our dog barking in our suite (its a dog friendly hotel). Not only did I immediately go to the room to bring him down to the reception to address it, she felt the need to reiterate to my husband later. It seemed incredibly tone-deaf; they placed us directly outside of the elevator and Top of Newport bar in one of their lowest level suites; of course that much activity, drunk people, and live music right outside the door would stir him up. It was poor planning on their end. In addition, ... Read more

  • We are very happy that we went with the hotel Viking for our wedding. It was very easy to plan with their coordinator and the grounds themselves were quite stunning. Very good experience.

  • From the very first message to Hotel Viking as a vendor, I knew I was going to want them. I sent the request for information through wedding wire and Nancy with Hotel Viking responded right away with details of the hotels history and pictures of their spaces and the wedding package and menu options. I liked that they gave us all the information up front rather than having to ask for it in pieces. Then when we went for a tour the employees were friendly and prompt and they had drinks and an appetizer for us to try!! It was an experience like no other, they truly wanted us there. The spaces were beautiful, they have several options to suit any size, and they also have the beautiful Kay Chapel on property, so if you want a classic feel but nondenominational this was perfect! The hotel staff made sure to keep in touch anytime there were further details we needed to be filling out, so I didn't have to worry about forgetting something, and they were very responsive when I had questions. ...

  • The hotel is so beautiful and offers everything you need for an event! Linda the event coordinator was by far the most helpful and calming person to creat your dream wedding with! She is absolutely amazing! The Viking ballroom is so stunning and the food is amazing! Almost all our guests cleaned their plates!

  • Our New Year's Eve wedding at the Kay Chapel and Hotel Viking was absolutely everything we had hoped for and more. Let me just start by saying how Nancy is one of the best in the business and absolutely made the experience easy and fun. She remembered every last detail and kept me calm and at ease the day of. The Kay Chapel is gorgeous and made for stunning night pictures. The Bellevue Room was setup exactly how I envisioned it, and Nancy made sure that we were taken care of the entire night and that we had nothing to stress about. Food tasted exactly how it did during our food tasting and we got lots of compliments about it afterward. Words can't thank Nancy enough for how wonderful she was over the last 14 months. If you are a bride looking to work with a wonderful team, you should absolutely consider Hotel Viking

  • We had a wonderful experience with the Hotel Viking. The wedding was elegant and beautiful without being "stuffy." Linda Ferguson is amazing. She is so calm, professional, and organized. She helped to reassure us that our day would be special and magical, and it was!

  • The Hotel Viking was the third wedding venue my fiancé and I went to see, and immediately something just felt right. First, Linda Ferguson was welcoming, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. Throughout the entire tour she was helpful but never pushy, she knew the venue would speak for itself. A few days following the tour of the Viking my fiancé and I booked our wedding reception with the ceremony at the Kay Chapel. The planning process was seamless. Linda answered every question I had quickly and completely, making suggestions along the way. I loved that the Viking really caters to what you envision your wedding day to be. Linda always told us what was offered, but always mentioned that we could modify to suit what we wanted (from where the bar is located in cocktail hour to what side is served with an entree). The food, service, and attention to detail at the Viking was impeccable. Following the wedding so many of my guests came up to me to tell me how much they loved our v... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Hotel Viking on Dec 31, 2016. Everything went very smoothly from the very beginning of the process to the end, and exceeded our expectations. The process of organizing the event was laid out to us when we booked the venue. We worked with Nancy Rusiloski - who I can't say enough good things about! She made the wedding day as stress-free as possible. I completely trusted her and her team to do the set-up and she did not disappoint. The food was absolutely amazing, and all our guests raved about it! I would highly recommend a wedding at Hotel Viking, and I am already looking forward to going back to visit. Also - the Kay Chapel was the perfect ceremony venue!

  • We chose the Hotel Viking for a room block and also to host the groom and his family in the days before the wedding. They were very helpful to our out of town guests, delivered letters to our guest's rooms with information for the big day, and were just generally friendly to work with. Thank you for making our weekend easy!

  • The Hotel Viking is an IDEAL location for your wedding. Linda went above and beyond for us from start to finish. As I write this, I remember looking at endless venue reviews just last summer, trying to find the best fit for my wedding. You needn't look any further. You will be treated like royalty at the Viking. The food, the ambiance, the estate rooms...not a single stone is left unturned. Our guests (we had a small wedding -- 60 guests) LOVED Newport and the picturesque beauty of this seaside town. The Viking hosted the majority of our guests and they raved about it. Our cake was perfect, the ballroom exquisite (black linens with gold charger plates and chivari chairs -- trust me on this one!), the chapel stunning...our photographs are incredible. Again, Linda was the star of the show. She is patient, poised, knowledgable, kind, encouraging and above all, a strong and confident leader. You will LOVE having your wedding at the Viking. I wish it was already our anniversary so we could ... Read more

  • I am not at all surprised to see all the rave reviews here. My husband and I could not be happier about our decision to get married at Hotel Viking. We had our ceremony in the beautiful Kay Chapel, our cocktail hour in the courtyard, and our reception in the Thames room. (We had a small wedding of only 33 guests, which is why we did not use the ballroom.) I liked how we could do everything in one location. We even had drinks with our guests on the rooftop the night before. Planning was a breeze. Linda Ferguson is as great as everyone says she his- super responsive and accommodating. And most importantly, everything was perfect on the big day. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. I would highly recommend Hotel Viking for anyone wishing to get married in Newport.

  • Our rehearsal dinner was absolutely magical and beautiful! We had a cocktail hour in the courtyard with fire pits and gorgeous lighting, then moved inside for an absolutely delicious dinner (all with the best drinks!) I cannot say enough great things about the entire experience! It was a BEAUTIFUL venue, fantastic service, delicious food, great drinks and very reasonably priced! Linda was by my side every step of the way and made the entire planning process incredibly easy. She was so helpful and attentive, as was everyone on service. All of our guests raved about how truly wonderful our rehearsal dinner was. Everything was flawless! Highly recommend this location for a wedding or rehearsal dinner!

  • Planning remotely, I really wanted to make sure everything was as easy as possible to avoid any major issues on the day of. Nancy was our day of coordinator and was wonderfully responsive and professional as far as responding to my assorted questions and making sure that day of I only needed to worry about showing up. We choose the downstairs ballroom, the Viking ballroom because this came with the use of the courtyard space for cocktail hour. The weather was fortunately absolutely beautiful for the cocktail hour and the chapel is absolutely gorgeous. I can't say enough nice things about how convenient it was to have my hotel room, my chapel, cocktail hour, and the reception all together so that the whole day went off seamlessly.

  • Our wedding coordinator, Linda Ferguson, was as professional as they come and a delight to work with. The correspondence between us and Linda was extremely easy and responses were quick (at most, a day!). As the big day draws closer for couples, the stressors and anxiety are heightened yet any concerns we may have anticipated were never a concern because of Linda's diligence throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Linda and Hotel Viking for your special day. The only criticism we had (reasoning behind not receiving 5 stars in "responsiveness" and "flexibility") is with the room accommodations. It appeared that there were "to many hands in the cookie jar" with respect to hotel room blocks and subsequent questions regarding said blocks. If it wasn't for one astute employee, our wedding suite may have been given to another couple booking a room under our room block. Moreover, check-in was a concern as our ceremony started prior to hotel check in (4pm) and when questioned ... Read more
