  • My wife and I got married at Hotel Viking in August of 2020, which is obviously during Covid. The hotel worked with us every step of the way, kept us informed, and did a great job of making sure our guests were safe, but that we still had a fun day. All of Rhode Island's guidelines were strictly followed, including mask-wearing, no dancing, and no shared food. We were nervous about how our wedding and reception would feel during a pandemic, but our experience at Hotel Viking and Kay Chapel far exceeded our expectations. We cannot recommend Linda and her team enough!
