Hotel of the Week: Hotel Viking

Newport, RI

Can we talk about that bed for a minute? After a Vanderbilt-like day of croquet on the green, tea sandwiches with pitchers of Bloody Mary for lunch, and a fine dinner prepared by a pedantic French chef, a good night’s sleep is a must.

Guestrooms pay homage to different eras of Newport history: some are Gilded Age-opulent with silks, tapestries, and zebra-print chairs, others have the sleek, ebony-and-silver style of the 1930s. The rich, velvet settees and polished cherry wood floors in the lobby are an excellent setting for an exploration of the hotel’s long list of single malt scotches (or an afternoon tea).
