Rooms & Rates

A $22 million renovation transformed Kentucky’s first modern skyscraper -- originally built as a department store -- into the 114-room Hotel Covington Cincinnati Riverfront. With spaces inspired by the building's history, the hotel, just minutes from downtown Cincinnati, also sports a "north meets south" style restaurant based on its location on the Ohio/Kentucky border.

Rooms are stylish and spacious, with vintage retail-inspired touches (think freestanding wooden clothing rack), plush bedding and polished wood accents, as well as flat-panel televisions and Bluetooth stereo systems. King rooms start at 275 square feet and suites extend to 550 square feet, including lounge seating and courtyard or skyline views. 

The hotel's on-site restaurant, Coppin's (named for the building's original owner), sits in a glass-enclosed atrium with floor-to-ceiling windows and a seasonal courtyard that allows for outdoor dining in warmer weather or cozying up in front of a wood-burning fireplace in cooler months. 

The menu takes its inspiration from both northern and southern states, featuring dishes like the country ham biscuits that the Cincinnati Enquirer "cannot recommend highly enough" alongside "fabulous" wild-caught walleye and corn fritters. The bar showcases local beers -- twenty different varieties on draft -- along with wines, ciders and craft cocktails.

We enjoyed the way the old building was renovated in a very modern style but kept a certain old building flavor. Our room was very comfortable as well as luxurious. I would return just for the bathroom and the luxurious towels and linens.

We met family members for a drink in the lobby/bar area. The furniture looked beautiful and modern but was actually very uncomfortable for sitting and chairs placed so far apart we couldn't hear each other. We moved to a table when it became available and we're happier. Service was lacking and one drink (Seagrams sevevand seven in a tall glass) was served in a small glass with little ice. Server brought more ice and seven up but that is such an easy drink to serve we didn't understand the problem. We would never turn for drinks.
