Inspired by John Coppin’s 1906 bet on an unlikely horse, Knowledge, the Hotel Covington is all about high stakes and big dreams. This hotel somehow manages to marry vintage touches and spectacularly modern tailoring; it exudes style, character and comfort. Simply unrivalled in Kentucky luxury, this new kid on the block promises true southern comfort.
Situated in central Covington, on the border with Ohio, the Hotel Covington is ideally situated for a day or two exploring all that Northern Kentucky has to offer. For one thing, you’ll be staying just minutes from the famous Roebling Suspension Bridge—once the longest in the world. Stroll over and gaze at it in awe, then continue with your leisurely walk along the waterfront to Devou Park, which offers spectacular views over the city so you can suss out where you’re going next. We recommend crossing the bridge – and the state border – to Cincinnati and grabbing tickets to a game at the Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, the oldest major league baseball team in the U.S..
You’ll love these lavish rooms which offer style, space and sophistication—and an opportunity to gaze out over the glimmering lights of the skyline. We’re big fans of the personalised suites, in particular the Knowledge Suite: 500 square feet in which you’ll have plenty of room to stretch your imagination and ponder what’s next on your southern adventure.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The Hotel Covington has it all: glamour, grandeur and gourmet delights. The outdoor courtyards and the hotel’s intimate spaces offer you a place to unwind before you head in to dine. Coppin’s Restaurant & Bar offers classic gastropub fare inspired by both the North and the South. The menu is rich with seasonal variations of the best sustainably-sourced local fare—from Bobwhite Quail to Country Ham with Bourbon Honey. Once you’ve dined in true style, you can pick up one of the bicycles offered by the hotel and take off on an evening ride around the local area. It’s safe to say the Hotel Covington ticks all the boxes – and more.
