#1 of 9 hotels in Covington
2021 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Hotel Covington embodies the transformation of a celebrated, century-old downtown building into a modern luxury hotel. Hotel Covington will appeal to business and leisure travelers accustomed to upscale hotels in primary markets seeking an authentic and locally influenced experience. The hotel draws inspiration from the local culture and cultivates a following through a sense of civic pride and exciting food & beverage. Hotel Covington will pull inspiration from its northern and southern sisters, but a cohesive mix of styles will ultimately lend individuality. A story will be told through regional and local sourcing, and will become the pulse of Covington and beyond: unique yet comfortable, casual yet refined, and timeless yet evolving. By reimagining the historically designated Coppin's Department Store, which was open from 1910 to 1977, into a 114-room hotel, this significant project is certain to become the springboard for development in Covington's downtown business district and will deliver urban renewal South of the riverfront developments.

This is one of the best hotel stays we’ve had in a very long time! Hotel Covington is beautifully renovated with lots of modern twists and the staging of current clothing with archival objects is a classic reference to its Department store history. The lobby and bar areas are beautiful, and the patio is very inviting. The rooms are beautiful and have great amenities, with specially curated mini bars. Probably the best lighting fixtures in any hotel room we’ve ever stayed in. We use their car shuttle service to go to dinner and back in North Cincinnati, and they were very accommodating. We loved our stay, and can’t wait to come back!

What a disappointment.....for the money {$200 range} one would expect perfection. Bathroom had 'dirt' on the floor and hair in two places in the shower. The shower design is pathetic....you have to be in the shower to turn the water on. You have to get completely out of the shower to access your towel. Sink stopper did not work unless you held it closed and got enough water in the sink to hold it down!!!!???? The pillows were pathetic....quite flat. In the lobby there were signs on all the tables/seating area to access someone to assign you a seat....don't know why when there were multiple parties throughout the area.

Dear gold-vintner, Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback regarding Hotel Covington. It's very unfortunate to see that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Our deepest apologies for the cleanliest and conditional concerns with your guestroom. Rest assured that I will share your commentary with our housekeeping team to better the service we provide. At Hotel Covington, we strive to provide a tailored experience for all our guests and I'm sorry that we missed the mark on your accommodations. Our lobby also serves as Coppin's restaurant so tables are clearly marked to inform guests to see the host stand for service. This area is different from our soft seating lounge spaces that are open to all guests. I do hope that you took an opportunity to address your concerns with us during your stay. We will always strive for perfection and do what's right in the eyes of our guests. I invite you to reach out to me at jham@hotelcovington.com so that we can discuss your stay more and come to a resolution. Sincerely, Justin H. - General Manager

The Hotel Covington was everything we hoped for on our night away. The room was spotless, the staff so accommodating, friendly, and ready to help. We had some luggage trouble, and the staff was quick with a solution, then followed up to make sure everything was okay. Thank you!!

What an elegant venue and they did an outstanding time hosting the wedding we attended. Beautiful lobby with a well curated gift shop and lobby/bar area. Rooms ranged from very spacious to pretty small. The on site Restaurant was good but had slow service for our brunch. The wedding dinner was good. Parking was nearby and only $10 a day. Maybe a weird thing to say, but that bathroom tp was low end and maybe the biggest negative of my stay! VictorB
