When the Southern Hotel opened in 1907, visitors were greeted with the latest amenities: hot water, electric lights and carpeting. Newspaper reports from the grand opening also noted the property's fine china, linens and attentive service. With its grand reopening in 2014, the Southern Hotel began welcoming guests to relax in beautifully-appointed luxury rooms, delight in fine china and luxury linens, and experience personal service and attention to detail that makes for an unforgettable stay. The property includes meeting rooms, banquet facilities, Wi-Fi throughout, a fitness facility, plunge pool, restaurant and chic bar/lounge. The Garden House is the newest addition to the Southern, a spectacular renovation of the 1937 Covington Post Office which includes a 1939 WPA mural by renowned artist, Xavier Gonzales. Located adjacent to the Southern Hotel, The Garden House is situated where the hotel’s tennis courts and rose gardens were originally located in the early 20th century. Be sure to visit the Cypress Bar and try a handmade, innovative cocktail. For a quick breakfast or lunch, there's Scotts' Coffee Bar in the lobby. For dinner, experience the hottest new restaurant on the Northshore, the award-winning Oxlot 9. Named after the Covington's Historic District ox-lots, Oxlot 9 is an upscale southern bistro with a simple yet sophisticated approach to seasonal ingredients found in the region served in a lively and comfortable setting.
