The Southern Hotel is located in the center of charming Covington, Louisiana.
When the hotel’s new owners purchased the property in 2011, they were motivated by a desire to return the building to a modern interpretation of what it once was. After a two-year meticulous renovation and restoration, the hotel reopened on June 1, 2014, 107 years to the date from its original opening. The lobby of the hotel is now affectionately described as “Covington’s living room,” and is once again a beloved gathering place. From the furniture in the guest rooms to the artwork in the common areas, the hotel honors Covington’s legacy as an artists’ community by showcasing the work of many local artists; its two suites are named after Walker Percy, who was from Covington, and Thomas Sully, a Louisiana architect; and its meeting room is the Olympia Room, named after the local fifty-year-old Mardi Gras Krewe, and it displays the Krewe’s artifacts and memorabilia for the public to see.
The hotel's restaurant, The Gloriette, is led by Chef Steven Marsella and features local and French-inspired cuisine, all in the warm and vibrant environment of the newly designed space.
A family-owned business, the hotel is committed to elevating the art of hospitality and providing guests with an experience that is rooted in the past, connected to the community around it, and celebrating all of the elements of a good life—good food and drink, comfort and communion, creativity and culture.
