The first and most important aspect for our wedding was to find the perfect venue. We wanted a modern, beautiful setting; but more importantly, since we were planning this from California, we wanted a venue that included everything, and Hotel Covington provided it all. We held our ceremony on the lawn and our intimate reception in Schepers' dining room, and the night was absolutely magical.Sent on 09/19/2020
In the early stages of planning, I believe Hotel Covington was acquired by Madison Events, so there was a bit of shuffling with employees including our point of contact a few times. However, they were always completely transparent and prompt to let us know when these changes were occurring, and eventually we ended up working with Zoe Mendenhall, who was absolutely amazing to work with. No matter how many ridiculous questions I could come up with, she always cheerfully answered them and responses to emails came within a day. She truly helped to keep me sane while planning a wedding from the other side of the country. The day of the wedding, we also worked with Patty and a few others that kept the day moving along perfectly.
On top of incredible staff, the food was absolutely phenomenal. Several people told me that it was the best wedding food they had ever had, and it really was delicious. I wish I could have those chicken meatballs every day of my life! They were even able to make a few adjustments to specific items to fit our menu.
Finally, the hotel amenities were beyond perfect for accommodating our guests. We easily set up a block, so many guests stayed for the weekend. The convenience of having the wedding, a restaurant, and guest rooms all in one building can't be beat for an eventful weekend (plus you can just delete the whole "transportation" portion of your wedding budget, lol).
I could say so much more about Hotel Covington, but the main thing I want anyone reading this to know is that if you go with Hotel Covington for your wedding venue, you won't regret it. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding weekend!

An Absolute Dream
I wish I could put into words how immensely thankful/grateful I am for the Hotel Covington/Madison staff. Our wedding day was better than anything I could’ve ever dreamed of. The room, the food, the staff, the experience… it was all perfect. It was a fairytale and a day that will play over and over again in my head. If you are thinking about holding your wedding at Hotel Covington/The Madison—BOOK NOW. You won’t regret it. If I could give HC more than 5 stars, I would. We help our rehearsal dinner and our ceremony at Hotel Covington and we received nothing but rave reviews. It was truly everything I ever imagined. Zoe helped turn my wedding vision into a reality. She was with us throughout the entire process, answering every little question I had and ensuring my wedding day was everything I wished for. She is truly one of the sweetest souls and it really was a joy working with her. I don’t know if I could’ve made it through COVID wedding planning without Zoe. Zoe and all of The Madison staff were so helpful in dealing with COVID protocols. I also would like to shout out Patty Cunningham, our night-of coordinator. She was absolutely amazing. She not only made sure my husband and I were taken care of all night, but also our parents. She made sure to box up each flavor of cake/cake pops and she is the only reason we got to try our wedding cake. She was our wedding night fairy godmother. Her attentiveness did not go unnoticed and she deserves all of the accolades in the worldSent on 05/11/2021

Perfect Hotel and Rehearsal Dinner
If you’re looking for a hotel for your rehearsal dinner/wedding needs in the Downtown Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, I would highly recommend considering Hotel Covington. My husband and I ended up choosing Hotel Covington for both our rehearsal dinner and our rooms/hotel block for our wedding in February 2020. Once we did a tour of the rooms at Hotel Covington, I had my heart set on staying there. The rooms are just so beautiful and create the perfect atmosphere to prepare for your wedding. The staff at Hotel Covington were so great to work with and everyone who stayed there thoroughly enjoyed their experience.Sent on 04/18/2021
With respect to the Rehearsal Dinner, we loved the menu options available, and from a pricing perspective felt that it was a great value for the quality of food compared to some other local options. We were also so happy that the Chef and staff at Hotel Covington were able to work with us to customize the menu to meet our dietary needs. Being vegan and having about half of our rehearsal party vegan/vegetarian, it was really important to my husband and I that there were great-tasting vegan options for each of the courses. I think many places we looked at would have treated our dietary needs as an after thought and provided us with a salad, simple entrée, and no dessert. However, Hotel Covington did such a great job of working with us to pick multiple vegetarian/vegan options that anyone would be thrilled to have. The food was exceptional, the room was gorgeous (they make it so easy for you to decorate to your tastes ahead of time), and the staff was all so friendly and provided amazing service. We loved our experience with Hotel Covington and believe anyone else who would choose to stay there would have an amazing time as well.
