In the quaint town of Covington, Louisiana, located just across Lake Pontchatrain from New Orleans, the Southern Hotel’s vaunted history of hospitality began in 1907. Established as a physical and spiritual retreat where visitors would re-energize amidst the area’s cool breezes, piney woods and mineral springs, the hotel hosted guests for more than 50 years.
We offer a deluxe double-double bedroom, as well as a traditional king bedroom. Both come with deluxe pillow-top mattress, 37” flat screen TV and complimentary wireless Internet.
VIP Suite with living room area and attached king bedroom. Large marble bathroom with garden tub and separate luxurious shower.
The Garden House is a spectacular renovation of the 1937 Covington Post Office. 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.
In a backlit bar with murals of historic Covington postcards by world-renowned muralist Grahame Menage, you’ll feel you’re in some other time and place. From beer and whiskey tastings to live music, Walker Percy Wednesdays and Hers Day every Thursday, the Cypress Bar has something for everyone.
