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!
