This past weekend my daughter got married and the Southern Hotel hosted her reception and the accommodations. I cannot say enough great things about the hotel and the staff. The service we received the entire time was 5 star. Danelle made sure our every need was taken care of. The night of our dinner Cassie was incredible in taking care of our every need. The dinner prepared by Ox Lot 9 was excellent in every course served. Our family and friends were all impressed with everything about the hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. Since we had to have a reduced reception this year, we have already booked the full reception in 2021 at the Southern Hotel. I highly recommend Southern Hotel as a wedding venue, vacation/staycation, or dinner at Ox Lot 9.

This is such a great hotel, and Covington is really charming. Plus there’s excellent restaurants, shops etc among the shady moss-filled trees in such a manageable and nice community. The North Shore is fantastic! Upon arrival, the hotel is easy to find after exiting I-12 and there’s plenty of surface parking. The lobby and public spaces are lovely, open and fresh while very Southern and even beautifully scented. The patio and pool are fab, but my fave is the painted murals and bar area with a great bartender mixing delicious cocktails. Check-in is quick and the property is small—just 2 floors. Rooms are beautifully decorated and beds/linens are perfect. Details abound here!! And with this attention to detail, the hotel staff and management have attended to high standards for your safety right now with hand sanitizer everywhere, masks and plenty of space for proper social distancing. This place is a jewel!!! We will definitely be back

Recently restored boutique hotel in the heart of Covington. The Southern is within easy walking distance of all restaurants, museums, etc. in the historic downtown and an easy .3 mile to the start of the Tammany Trace rail-to-trail path. No fitness center, but the hotel has 24/7 access to the Bogue Falaya Gym about 50 feet out the back door, and bike rentals are only a few yards further away. The hotel bar is intimate and the bartenders really do get to know your name. Rooms are cozy but well furnished, and the entire staff is outstanding. We'd usually stop and chat for a few minutes over early coffee at the front desk. We were there to help with the funeral of a close relative, and, as it turns out, we were the among the last couple of guests to check out before the hotel closed for the coronavirus epidemic. We'll certainly be back in the fall when can hold a suitable celebration of his life.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel! We had our wedding here and not only was the event perfect, but so were the stay and accommodations. The rooms are cozy and clean, and the staff goes above and beyond. We were blown away several times by the service we received during our stay. Our friends and family were all very impressed and loved the historic setting. Cypress bar quickly became our favorite place to grab a drink after our first visit there! I highly recommend Southern Hotel as a wedding venue, place to get away, and evening out for drinks!

I got married at the Southern Hotel in 2016 and have since held numerous work events and fundraising galas at the hotel. Their staff are absolutely incredible, and you can simply not beat how gorgeous this gem is on the Northshore!
