Kentucky, Deep South
Impeccably groomed, this fashionable hotel’s accessorised with faux fur throws, dramatic feature walls, and industrial black bathroom fixtures. Taking over the century old Coppin’s Department Store, it’s also brim-full with history. Originally built thanks to John Coppin’s winning bet on an underdog horse (this is Kentucky after all), the old store was totally transformed before reopening as Hotel Covington in 2016. On the banks of Ohio River, it’s now decked out with complimentary WiFi, minibars stocked with local goodies, and chic social spaces like The Coppin’s Patio, an urban courtyard within the old department store walls that’s home to lawn games, movie screenings, and music. Other social venues include Artisan Coffee Bar, open till 2.00pm most nights; The Walk Up late-night dining window; and the glass-enclosed Coppin’s Restaurant & Bar with its exposed bricks, raw rustic décor, and all-day dining.
