A century and a half after its opening, inn still the quintessential summer retreat for guests

When the Ocean House opened its doors to guests in 1868, it became, for them, the quintessential summer home by the sea. Generations came then, as they do today, to savor ocean breezes, superior service and comfortable accommodations. Today’s luxury inn, newly constructed in 2004, replicates the warm yellow exterior, and the welcoming hospitality, of its predecessor – but with so much more! Ocean House guests not only enjoy its private beach, with cabana service, but its world-class spa, croquet lawn, putting green, saltwater lap pool and fitness facility, fine dining and accommodations that have made it one of Forbes Magazine's "Most Luxurious Hotels & Spas", and one of the top 100 hotels in the world, according to Travel + Leisure readers.

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.

Hospitality amid scenic surroundings reflects this inn’s origins and earliest ideals

The aura of warm hospitality that surrounds the Weekapaug Inn comes to it naturally: It was a hallmark of the original 1899 inn. The Buffums family wanted to make their inn a welcome retreat for guests, rebuilding it in a secluded enclave by a salt pond after the 1938 hurricane. The inn was totally renovated in 2012 with an eye toward preserving its storied past while providing a host of modern amenities and activities from a lap pool and private beach to kayaking and nature walks. Each room is still unique in layout, furnishings and views, a tribute to earlier guests who requested their same rooms year after year. Each room also has been fitted with a vintage piece – a furnishing or textile – from the old inn.
