Hotel of the week
Once you check into the Hotel Viking, “the thought of never leaving the premises is a tempting one,” said Necee Regis in The Boston Globe. Though “imposing and formal” on the outside, the century-old property atop Historic Hill provides “a welcoming embrace” the moment you step into its large living room–style lounge. The 208 rooms and suites have all been refreshed by a $6.2 million renovation, and you can pass your days in the spa, take your meals on a patio, and, if you can resist the “sumptuous” bed linens, spend your nights in the busy rooftop bar.
