Aparium’s ‘Hotel Covington’ Opening in Summer 2016

Aparium Hotel Group, known for creating and managing locally-inspired independent hotels, announces the expansion of its portfolio with the acquisition of Hotel Covington (638 Madison Ave.). In collaboration with Owner Guy van Rooyen and Kentucky-based Hub + Weber Architects and Plume Interiors + Light, the multi-million dollar renovation and restoration of the 1910 Coppin’s Department Store comes to life in the summer of 2016.


John Roberts Coppin, a horse race enthusiast, cashed in after a lucky day at the track and went on to construct the department store in celebration of his greatest passion – fashion. The former department store, wildly known as the “greatest store in Northern Kentucky,” became the largest retailer in the region, where Coppin and his wife – regular visitors to New York’s fashion scene – showcased the hottest and most sought after industry trends. In honor of Coppin’s success in the mid-1900s, Aparium Hotel Group will manage one of Covington’s most historically significant landmarks and reviving the once prominent destination to become the “fashionista” of hotels for visitors and locals to enjoy in the years ahead.


\"Given its history and meaning to the Covington community, our entire team feels honored to revitalize this building and do right by the site and those living in its surrounding area,\" says Owner Guy van Rooyen. \"We carefully considered each detail within the hotel to instill a historic, but modern-day feeling that will evoke curiosity and nostalgia within our hotel guests,\" he adds.


With hospitality veteran Jack Olshan at the helm as General Manager, the stylish, fashion-inspired hotel is the first of its kind in the up-and-coming community, providing a locally curated destination for visitors and locals alike. Deeply rooted in Covington’s history and culture, the property’s reinvention pays tribute to the building’s past through its intricate design, locally sourced food and beverage offerings, and distinctive in-room amenities.


“Just as it was with the creation of our other properties, our goal with Hotel Covington is to create something special that pays homage to the community,” Aparium Hotel Group COO Kevin Robinson says. “With the restoration of this property, we are once again shining a light and sharing the storied history of an incredible building, which will become a thriving destination for which locals can be proud and enjoy as a new social spot.”
