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!

My husband and I had our dream wedding at the Hotel Viking in Newport. We worked closely with Linda Ferguson, the event coordinator, throughout the entire process. Linda was extremely helpful during wedding planning and if we ever had any questions always provided a prompt answer. The day of wedding rehearsal and wedding we didn't have to worry about anything! Linda knew exactly what we wanted and coordinated with all our vendors to make our vision come true! We had our ceremony in the Kay Chapel which I fell in love with the minute I saw. The chapel is adorable and gives the feeling of a beautiful little church while being non religious. You also can't beat the proximity to the Viking. We had so many guests tell us how beautiful the chapel was. Last, but not least, all the Viking staff went above and beyond for us. They were always making sure we were comfortable. Our guests loved the food! Can't say enough good things about the Viking!

We had an absolutely lovely experience having our wedding at the Hotel Viking. When I initially inquired, Linda Ferguson emailed me back with the package and pricing information. We went to Newport to meet with Linda and decided that this was where we wanted to have our wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner in the Colonnade Room, ceremony at Kay Chapel, and dinner/dancing in the Bellevue Ballroom. We had a lovely suite which was the perfect size. On Friday night we held our rehearsal dinner. Since our wedding was the week before Thanksgiving, we had a plated turkey dinner. I am still hearing about how good the meal was – (especially the stuffing!) Saturday was a whirl-wind, but looking back the day it couldn’t have been more perfect. Having the Touro Room for hair/makeup worked out great and was really convenient! The Kay Chapel was so cozy and charming and looked amazing. When I walked in to the ballroom before dinner/dancing with my new Husband and Photographer to take some photos, I literally gasped. The room (which is already beautiful) was transformed in to the most glamorous ballroom that I have ever seen.
The food was delicious – we started with lobster bisque, caesar salad and gave (3) choices of entrees – everyone enjoyed and raved about the food! Last but not least, Linda Ferguson was truly wonderful to work with. She was approachable, responded quickly, and helped us every step of the way. I can’t say enough nice things about her. I would also like to make mention that the valet service/bellman that were especially helpful to all of our friends and family.

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful place. We will cherish our memories at the Hotel Viking for a lifetime.

We loved everything about our experience at the Hotel Viking. Linda was wonderful and attentive to our every request. Our only complaint was the no one in the party seemed to like the Lobster Bisque we selected as our soup. Perhaps we should have tasted it before? But the rest of the food was absolutely fantastic.

We couldn't have possibly had a better wedding planning experience if it weren't for the expertise of The Hotel Viking's wedding planner, Linda Ferguson. Living in a different part of the country than where you're planning your wedding can be incredibly difficult but Linda made everything so easy. Knowing I had her to rely on gave me the peace of mind that not only was everything taken care of but also that I hadn't forgotten anything. She made me feel so comfortable in making decisions, giving me advice whenever I needed it. I liked Linda from the first phone call I had with her until after my wedding. When calling wedding venues, my interaction with Linda Ferguson was one of the main selling points for my husband, my mother and myself in choosing The Hotel Viking.
Other factors in choosing The Hotel Viking included their reasonable prices (for Newport, RI), their incredibly beautiful, historic Kay Chapel, as well as the timeless elegance of the hotel itself. The food was outstanding with very generous portions. There is not a doubt in my mind that we chose the right place for the wedding of my dreams. I couldn't compliment them enough: Linda Ferguson, The Hotel Viking, and their entire staff.

This venue is beyond gorgeous! The employees as well are so accommodating. Nancy in particular, who was our wedding coordinator from the hotel made sure that on the day of the wedding we had nothing to worry about. She assured us that on that day everything was in her hands, and afterwards we were amazed by how everything came together. We wouldn't change anything about our day. The hotel was gorgeous and our guests had a great time and they enjoyed their stay. The communication as well with the outside vendors and the hotel were flawless. Every vendor was contact by Nancy prior to the date to assure that they had everything the needed to complete our day. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married in Newport, RI. The best thing is that the hotel provides almost everything in one package so it reduces the amount of vendors we needed to hire. And for those that were not contracted, we were given a ton of referrals for great vendors.

However, the wedding staff genuinely cares about their couples and does everything in their power to make sure the special day goes off without a hitch. The space itself is gorgeous and the guest rooms are beautiful. A perfect upscale boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Newport.

Nancy, the sales woman, is precious. She accommodated every request I had, and believe me, I had hundreds. Andrea, the woman who runs the event the day of, is helpful ndn on top of everything. There was even a waiter dedicated just to my husband and I, he was there just to make sure we got everything we needed. He snuck me a 2nd bowl of soup and made sure our drinks were never empty. Just what we needed after a big day.

I LOVED the Hotel Viking and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to have a Newport wedding. For an upscale boutique hotel right in the heart of downtown Newport, the packages were very reasonably priced. They were able to tailor the package to fit my ideal dream wedding and made sure every detail was what I'd always dreamed of. Guests loved the hotel and the group wedding rate. The rooms are gorgeous, and the honeymoon suite was perfect. I stayed in the room the night before and got ready in the room the day of. The suite has 2 bathrooms, a bed room and living room area. My 6 bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, 2 photographers, 2 hair and makeup ladies, 3 flower girls, 2 aunts, other miscellaneous family members and I all fit in the room while we got ready with room to spare. It was quite spacious!

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The day of I requested 2 dozen champaign glasses and 4 ice buckets to be brought to my room for a toast and they were there within minutes. I can't wait to go back to the Viking. LOVED it!
