Hotel Viking’s culinary team, Executive Chef Kevin Thiele and Sous Chef Chad Hart won the Newport Winter Festival Chili Cook-Off three years in a row (2007, 2008, 2009), and placed 3rd in 2010 and 2013. This year, since the Chili Cook-Off is on February 14, the culinary team will be at Hotel Viking creating amazing dining experiences for Valentine’s Day. “We love competing in the Chili-Cook-Off, but we are romantics at heart and want to create a decadent dinner for couples celebrating Valentine’s Day,” says Chef Thiele. Chili fans can taste One Bellevue’s award-wining chili on the lunch menu and Winter Festival fans can still go to the chili competition, which is from 11 am until 3pm, and still make it to a romantic dinner at One Bellevue.

Hotel Viking, a member of Historic Hotels of America, features 208 guest rooms; a full-service spa; fine dining at One Bellevue; over 14,000 square feet of meeting space; a historic chapel; a 24-hour business center; an indoor pool/whirlpool; and fitness center.
