Newport teems with Colonial history and intriguing historic inns
Rhode Island teems with history, from the Blackstone Valley, where the American Industrial Revolution was born in the textile mills there, to the shores of Newport, with its cobbled colonial streets and 19th-century Gilded Age mansions. Newport historical lodging, including first class hotels and inns, places visitors right at the places where history was made. These RI hotels and lodgings often are luxurious all by themselves, a wonderful place simply to relax and contemplate the passing of time.

90 Years Of History
Hotel Viking, a Newport landmark since opening in 1926, is Newport’s first hotel and a member of the Historic Hotels of America. The hotel is within walking distance of Newport’s Gilded Age mansions, museums and historical attractions. When it opened, Hotel Viking represented hope for the future, not nostalgia for the past despite its architectural connection to Newport’s colonial history. What makes us special is that we’re entrenched in history in part to the famous guests like John and Jacqueline Kennedy, Will Rogers, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and others that have stayed.
