Covington Hotels Among Best Hotels in Cincinnati, Kentucky

US News ​released its rankings of the best hotels in Cincinnati and Kentucky, and Hotel Covington showed up on both lists.

The boutique hotel in downtown Covington was #2 in Cincinnati and #4 in all of Kentucky. Here's what the magazine had to say:

The Hotel Covington Cincinnati Riverfront, which opened its doors in September 2016, occupies the iconic 1910 Coppin's Department Store building. The Covington, Kentucky, property nods to its roots with the Coppin's Restaurant & Bar and preserved design touches featured throughout the hotel, such as the high ceilings and oversized display windows. Recent guests appreciated the chic interiors, especially in their rooms, which reviewers described as "beautiful." Accommodations are outfitted in rich jewel tones, with velvet tufted headboards and amenities like free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs and minifridges stocked with local products. The emphasis on locally sourced ingredients is also on display in the restaurant menus and at the on-site Artisan Coffee Bar, which uses Carabello Coffee from nearby Newport, Kentucky. And when the weather allows, guests can enjoy the outdoors at The Patio at Coppin's, which offers lawn games, evening movie screenings and a fireplace. Other on-site amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a late night grab-and-go eatery and business facilities. In addition to the eye-catching interiors and delicious restaurant menus, visitors were also pleased with the courteous and attentive staff. You’ll find this hotel across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati.

Hotel Covington was the only local hotel on the Kentucky list, but it was joined by several others in Covington on the Cincinnati list.

The Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter came in at #7 and the Embassy Suites at RiverCenter was #8.

The Radisson Hotel - with its iconic rotating restaurant - was #9.

The Courtyard by Marriott in Covington ranked #12 and the Holiday Inn Riverfront came in at #13.
