Linda was awesome and the staff of the Viking went over the top for us. From the moment we arrived everything was so perfectly planned. We could not have asked for a better venue. I would recommend the Hotel Viking to anyone I know getting married.

It really was the perfect wedding weekend! Our ceremony was held at Kay Chapel, our cocktail hour was in the courtyard (thank god for warm September weather) and our reception was in the Viking Ballroom (downstairs). We also hosted a breakfast Sunday morning in the courtyard for our guests that stayed in the hotel.

I really loved the overall experience and style of the Hotel Viking, it definitely has an intimate, classy and charming feel to it, which was a perfect fit for our wedding.

Kay Chapel is simple and elegant, certainly a gem! Our guests also loved that it was a short walk from the Chapel to the Hotel for the cocktail hour/reception (no need to get back in the car). The cocktail hour was really nice, we had rented white lanterns from our florist, and he placed them throughout the courtyard. They looked lovely! The ballroom looked beautiful, the food was excellent (I received many compliments from our guests), and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter came over to us many times during the evening to see if he could get us anything else.

I worked with Linda Ferguson at the Hotel Viking, and she was a pleasure to work with. She was very helpful throughout the planning process, very responsive to my many, many questions, and certainly accommodating. The day before our wedding, our wedding day and at our Sunday breakfast, Linda checked in with us to ensure everything was going well. She goes out of her way, to make sure everything goes well.

Overall, our experience with the Hotel Viking was PERFECT…. I wouldn't have changed a thing. We had such a nice and fun weekend, certainly a time to remember!!!

We had our ceremony at Kay's Chapel. Everything was perfect. Linda was wonderful to work with. She was incredibly responsive and helped us every step of the way.We also used her recommendation for our officiant and we were extremely happy with him. I would highly recommend Kay Chapel for a wedding ceremony. The chapel provided a historic intimate setting and my pictures are stunning.

Every detail of our wedding weekend was amazing! We were first drawn to Hotel Viking for the location and atmosphere. We also held the ceremony at Kay Chapel and hosted a brunch the next day in the Colonade room. The convenience of all the events was wonderful, as we had many out of town guests. The entire staff at the hotel was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our event planner, Linda, was THE BEST! Her attention to detail and responsiveness thoroughout the whole 12+ month process was wonderful and made the wedding seamless. Thank you!

My husband and I celebrated our wedding at Hotel Viking recently. The ceremony was at the charming Kay Chapel and the reception in the beautiful Bellevue Ballroom. We planned our wedding from Boston and I am a law student, so I was expecting it to be a very stressful several months leading up to the big day. Our event coordinator Linda Ferguson was amazing - responsive, accommodating, and completely on point. She made the entire process so easy and stress-free. She made great suggestions and knew exactly how to execute our beautiful wedding. Our day went off without a hitch, and my guests are still raving about the venue, the food, and how much they enjoyed our wedding. The staff at Viking was also fantastic. Servers and bartenders were friendly and helpful, and valets and everyone working at the desk was great. I really cannot say enough about Hotel Viking. We will remember our wedding day for the rest of our lives and look forward to returning to the Viking for our anniversary for years to come.

Our winter wedding at the Viking was so great!
We were married in Kay Chapel (simple, cozy, New England charm) and we hosted our reception in the Viking Ballroom. We also hosted a morning-after breakfast in the Bellevue Ballroom. Everything, from the moment we arrived on Thursday morning until the moment we drove away on Sunday afternoon, was handled with professionalism, wowing our parents, guests and us (the bride and groom).
Furthermore, the months and months of planning with Linda Ferguson were productive, efficient and smooth. Linda is on the top of her game. She is smart, kind, flexible and thoughtful. She works seamlessly with your vendors. She gets to know you and your family and then alleviates any doubts and ultimately delivers an experience that keeps to your budget and exceeds your expectations. As someone who somewhat works in the business, I had zero concerns when working with Linda.
Overall: The location in Newport is perfect, the hotel rooms are comfortable and nice, the food is delicious, and the staff (kudos to the front desk team and bells who didn't blink when we handed over our room drop spreadsheet) is focused and nimble.
Thank you, Hotel Viking (and thank you x 1,000, Linda)!
