So Glad We Picked Hotel Viking!

Wow, what a great experience from start to finish! We鈥檙e so glad we chose to host our wedding at Hotel Viking. Everyone at Hotel Viking was respectful, kind, and professional with every interaction. We held our wedding ceremony in Kay Chapel, which is a nondenominational chapel now owned by the hotel. It was beautiful. We then had our cocktail hour in the Thames Room and our reception in Bellevue Ballroom. Linda from Hotel Viking answered every question, accommodated every special request, and supported us the whole way through. As I was getting ready to walk down the aisle, I was psyched to have her nearby. All of our guests LOVED the food and expressed that the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. My husband and I had a blast and felt like it was truly our dream wedding. Guests had a blast, too. The bridal party had an enormous suite to get ready in and it allowed the hair and makeup to spread out and still left room for the girls to gather, take photos, eat, drink, and lounge. Thank you for a GREAT day, Hotel Viking, and for your partnership throughout the planning process!

Newport Wedding - Charm & Convenience

We had our wedding at Hotel Viking and from start to finish, everyone involved was super helpful and attentive, especially Linda. Our big day felt so special and we could not have chosen a better venue for a winter wedding. We had our ceremony at Kay Chapel and the proximity to Hotel Viking added such value, we received so many compliments from the guests about this too. We always knew we wanted our wedding to be in Newport and at Kay Chapel and Hotel Viking, you definitely get that historic charm. Since these places were so naturally pretty, we didn't need to go over the top with decor.

The food & drinks at the hotel were absolutely delicious. They had plenty of options for everyone and were super accommodating for guests that had allergies.

All in all, we had our dream wedding at Hotel Viking and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else looking to get married in Newport. I cannot compliment the staff enough from to the valet staff to the front desk associates, and everyone in between.

Couples Choice Awards

My husband and I were so very thrilled by the team at Hotel Viking! First, Linda was a joy to work with. She was professional, kind, and honestly felt like family. The team helped us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions and made sure we had what we needed to make our day truly special. Second, the venue was stunning! Having our wedding at the hotel was easy for our guests, and incredibly special for us. From gorgeous photo opportunities, to just having all things ready and at your finger tips, it made for a memorable day and for simple logistics. We loved the romantic feel of the Kay Chapel, the upscale feel of the Viking Ballroom, and the boutique feel of the hotel. Lastly, the food was amazing! The chef was very responsive to our suggestions during the tastings, and helped us build a menu that made our day feel extra special. We look back at our wedding day as truly one of the happiest days of our lives, and are so grateful to Linda and the team for making it all possible. We highly recommend Hotel Viking to anyone else considering a venue that really goes the extra mile to help you make the day special, and for a place that will be beautiful for you and for your guests!
