Newport’s Gilded Age celeb hangout dazzles with a pool, rooftop bar and eco-friendly spa
Nordic Runes nod to the hotel’s Viking name, but this 1926 charmer is all American, turn-of-the-century glamour. The Vanderbilts, Astors and Kennedys once sashayed among naval officers and movie stars in the building’s infamous old Skoal Room. Today, the debonair One Bellevue and its sunny garden patio draw Newport’s moneyed set with champagne, sustainable seafood and oysters on the half shell. Go for a drink with a view at the Top of Newport bar (open seasonally), then unwind with the Balinese- and Thai-inspired, organic treatments at SpaTerre.
In the Area
Located a few blocks from historic downtown Newport, the hotel is a prime base for exploring one of New England’s most treasured coastal enclaves and one of America’s most famous summer playgrounds. From the grand 1893 Breakers to boardwalk-style candy shops, there’s a pretty broad spectrum of sunny Americana. Head out along the coast-hugging three-and-a-half mile cliff walk for Atlantic vistas and Newport-mansion backdrops, or hop in the car for the 10-mile, historic Ocean Drive. Indulge in Tallulah on Thames’ 3-course prix-fixe menus with seasonal palate-pleasers like wild ramp gnocchi with buerre monte and spring onion.
How to Get There
Stayed at The Hotel Viking for a family wedding. The staff is outstanding. The food for lunch was delicious and the bar is a great place to meet for before or after the festivities.
The rooms are very small but the amenities and cleanliness is top rate.
The only downside, the do NOT carry Coca Cola products!
For the price point a complete miss. Tired, dirty, understaffed, poorly maintained. An exploitation of location that ought not to be sustained. From an unexplained late check in to a rusty bathtub to nonexistent WiFi this was a two star experience at a four star rate.
Valet lost our rental car. We made plenty of time before departing for a wedding & they made us wait 2o min before telling us can't find auto- luckily the wedding offered shuttle. We called & instructed front desk to inform us when auto found- we needed to depart early for morning flight. Later that nite on return, we were told they found our rental car. Next morning staff gave a weak "sorry". Follow up is very weak, as staff was overwhelmed.
