Aparium converting 102-year-old building
Aparium Hotel Group is partnering with Salyers Group and the city of Covington to develop and manage The Hotel Covington in Kentucky. The 107-key luxury hotel will be housed in Covington’s City Hall building, a 102-year-old structure that was formerly a Coppin’s Department Store.
Hotel Covington is the first development and management contract for the newly formed Aparium Hotel Group—which was founded when Milwaukee developer Tim Dixon, owner of the Iron Horse Hotel, partnered with Chicago-based hotel executives Kevin Robinson and Mario Tricoci in August.
“This property ideally suits our commitment to delivering Translocal Hospitality in urban markets,” says Mario Tricoci, Aparium’s ceo. “The Hotel Covington will draw inspiration from the local culture and cultivate a following through a sense of civic pride and exciting food & beverage.”
The Covington hotel will be located across the Ohio River from the downtown Cincinnati site of Louisville, Ky.-based 21c Museum Hotels’ latest venture. That hotel will be located in the former Metropole Hotel building.
