A landmark in Newport Rhode Island, alive with New England hospitality, luxury and charm
Beach | Food & wine | Spa
Hotel Viking is located among the brick sidewalks and cobblestone streets of downtown Newport, a beautiful seaside city in Rhode Island famous for its stunning coastline and 20th century mansions. To combine the two, a scenic cliff walk will take you past exemplary architecture and along a 3.5-mile stretch of the Pacific. You’ll also find an excellent collection of museums, including the International Tennis Hall of Fame, along with a bounty of yachting and sailing opportunities.
Period-inspired furniture such as built in cherry wood wardrobes and Gilded Age interiors are to be found in the original wings of the hotel and its more modern additions alike. Rich, textured bed coverings, fireplaces and pillowed marble showers further contribute to the sense of opulence while LCD flatscreen TVs and air conditioning brings the rooms back to the 21st century. Suites are individually designed with appointments reflecting everything from French Rococo to Victorian sensibilities. All have their own parlours – seating areas complete with oriental carpets, wood flooring and plush furnishings.
Executive chef Barry Correla heads up the hotel’s One Bellevue restaurant – winner of OpenTable’s Diner’s Choice Award 2015. His philosophy of healthy gourmet cuisine underpins dishes such as cavatelli carbonara, citrus blackened salmon and charcoal broiled duck. The restaurant is also well known locally for its excellent Gilded Age afternoon tea as hosts guide you through the etiquette behind consuming fine teas, finger sandwiches, house-made scones and a variety of delicate pastries.
Head upstairs to the Top of Newport Bar where expert mixologists serve speciality cocktails, along with fresh seafood bar snacks. Once settled in, you can enjoy views over the delicately coifed Newport rooftops. For an equally invigorating experience, book into SpaFjör, where Balinese and Thai treatments are tailored to each guest while the weights and cardio machines of the fitness centre are sure to get the heart rate back up.
