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.

Gilded Age romance meets modern luxury at this historic Newport hotel

When you step into the lobby of the Hotel Viking, you are stepping into history. The hotel, perched in the very geographic center of Newport, RI, amazed the public when it opened its doors nearly 100 years ago in 1926, and it continues to amaze guests who enjoy its sumptuous suites with touches that honor its past, from clawfoot tubs to marble fireplaces and rich, velvet tapestries. You can still see the original key boxes behind the front desk and the brass letterbox in the lobby. But the hotel, a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America, has all the modern amenities that make a stay there memorable, from an on-site spa and indoor pool to a fabulous restaurant and rooftop bar with views of Narragansett Bay.
