    Spectacular!

    The day we toured Hotel Viking, we knew it was the perfect spot for our wedding. Everyone at Hotel Viking was so kind, patient, responsive, and professional. Throughout the entire wedding process, Jordan (Hotel Viking鈥檚 Event Coordinator) was extremely communicative, organized, and helpful. She answered every question of ours in a timely and professional manner. She made us feel valued and heard. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect because of the staff at Hotel Viking. The food was also spectacular and we enjoyed dancing the night away in the Viking Ballroom. We highly recommend Hotel Viking for all weddings and events!

    An absolute dream venue!

    The Hotel Viking was an absolute dream! Throughout every part of the process, the staff went above and beyond to make our day special! Linda started out as our coordinator, and she was nothing but a class act. She鈥檚 a calming presence, and she was able to answer all of our questions (usually same day or next day!) Jordan took over as coordinator for the week of our wedding, and her professionalism not only met but exceeded our expectations! The front desk staff and valets were always friendly and welcoming. Chef Kevin鈥檚 food is unbelievably delicious! They also have immensely talented bartenders (big shoutout to Laura!) Kay Chapel is what initially drew me to the venue. It鈥檚 just as magical in person as it is in photos, and the Bellevue Ballroom gave us all of the classic Newport elegance! I could go on and on, but I鈥檒l end with this: if you鈥檙e thinking about booking Hotel Viking for your wedding venue, you won鈥檛 regret it!

    Hotel Viking's reply:

    Thank you Haley!

    Your kind and sincere words mean so much to all of us, and we are so happy to hear that many aspects of your special day exceeeded the expectations of you and Michael! It was a pleasure to plan with you and see your "dream" wedding come to life at the Hotel Viking with the help of our Team! I will make sure to share your comments with everyone involved, and thank you for taking the time to share!

    XO Linda Ferguson and Jordan Seim
