Why you should take your teen on a trip every year. Have you ever stayed at the same hotel several times and it eventually feels like a second home? That is how we feel about Hotel Covington. When we walk in the lobby it just feels like comfort to us. This was our third stay at Hotel Covington and by far our favorite. If you’ve never taken your teen on a special Mom/son trip I highly encourage it.
My son is 14. He loves soccer, shopping, shoes and gaming. He has reached the age where he doesn’t say a lot. You know the one sided conversations that you’ve experienced with teens. Yep, that is us now. But I refuse to give up. And so I took him on the trip just the two of us. He was unplugged from gaming and I saw another side of him. The familiar side that I love.
Why you should take your teen on a trip every year:
Last year we spent four nights at Hotel Covington while my son attended the FC Barcelona Soccer Camp in NKY. This was the perfect location for us! It was convenient to camp and we enjoyed the luxury amenities of this boutique hotel. The staff was so accommodating to us and brought us ice daily for our cooler and filled my sons water bottle each morning. We loved our experience.
When I asked him where he wanted to stay this year he didn’t even hesitate for a second and immediately replied “Hotel Covington, of course”. And so that was that. We stayed in a 2-queen bed city view room. Our room on the 3rd floor was very nice, and the over-sized bathroom was modern and luxurious. We had plenty of room to spread out and didn’t feel cramped at all.
This is a very pet friendly hotel. In fact we saw dozens of dogs while we were visiting. There is a $75.00 fee is required at check-in to allow the hotel to clean and sanitize the room after departure and no more than two pets are allowed per guestroom. However I consider this a bargain if you are traveling with your dog. Something for us to consider next year!
The modern vibe of the hotel is something that really appeals to my son. We enjoyed spending time in the outdoor courtyard (patio). It gave us plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors without leaving our hotel in the evening. The lobby is seriously gorgeous. There is plenty of seating to hang out with friends, grab a drink or read a book and relax.
They also feature an Artisan Coffee Bar located in the lobby of Hotel Covington where you can grab a free cup of locally roasted coffee and a quick breakfast on the go. My son fell in love with the homemade croissants.
He said they are the best he has ever had. He also enjoyed the homemade marshmallow treats. All hotel guests receive 2 coffee tokens in their guest rooms that can be redeemed for a complimentary cup of drip coffee (per day) or a $1 off a specialty drink.
The hotel is home to the restaurant called Coppins. It is simply our favorite spot for a Mom/Son date night! Don’t be concerned if you think the menu is small because every single item we tried was delicious and there is something for everyone. They have several gluten free and vegan options too! I mean just look at his face! That is a happy teenager!
Even my picky teen was happy and that is saying a lot! Eating at Coppins was one of the highlights of our stay! Plus, they will customize to suit your needs. The service was outstanding, and the atmosphere was too! It is the perfect backdrop for conversation.
Hotel Covington is easily our favorite hotel in NKY. It is clean, comfortable, and modern with a nostalgic charm. It is luxurious and really welcoming. All of the staff that we experienced from housekeeping, valet, managers, to dining were friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Hotel Covington if you are looking for a destination in NKY or Cincinnati.
We just wrapped up a fantastic week filled with long talks, many laughs and made memories that will last us a lifetime. This was Peyton’s last year for Barcelona Camp in NKY but we’ve decided to make this trip an annual tradition and I’m all in! 💕 I love this guy so much. There is nothing better than Mother/Son time! So this is why you should take your teen on a trip every year. We are looking forward to next year!
