In historic, oceanside Newport, R.I., the Hotel Viking is scheduled to finish a major guest room renovation in March 2011. Work is under way on the hotel’s Newport Wing, where 136 rooms are being redesigned and refurnished.

The project will not only refresh the Newport Wing’s rooms, it will make them all the same, answering a concern of meeting clients who wanted the property to have a consistent room block.

In total, Hotel Viking offers 209 guest rooms and suites and 13,400 square feet of meeting space, including two ballrooms. Other features include a spa, fitness center, and seasonal rooftop lounge.
