Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta
Great Hotel (except for the parking)
My boyfriend and I decided to spend a romantic weekend in Atlanta. After some research, I choose the Intercontinental. We didn't check in until 2 a.m., the staff was very nice and prompt. The rooms were not hotel like (more like a nice guest room at your wealthy aunt's house) and the bathrooms were beautiful. The service was outstanding. We got a great rate ($199 per night with breakfast) and a 4 p.m. checkout.
Although I don't like that I had to pay $15 a day to self park in the hotel's parking deck. Saturday night, due to functions at the hotel the self parking was full. The valet us for free. Very nice until we needed the car back and it took 45 minutes to get my car back. But the 15 valet staff were running around like nuts parking and retrieving cars. They should be more prepared and guest of the hotel should come before vistors. (Parking situation knocked the rating down to 4 stars--why do I have to pay to park as a guest of the hotel?)
Found a new Atlanta hotel to stay at
After years of booking rooms at the Ritz in Buckhead right down the street, we decided to stay at the Intercontinental Buckhead after one of my friends recommended it (she recommends it to out-of-town business clients). Everything was very clean. The rooms decorations are upscale and doesn't feel hotel-like. Attention was paid to detail. Beds are very comfortable- you won't want to get up in the morning. The bathroom has a large sunken tub- great for relaxing with some champagne! It also has a marble shower. Room service was fast. The scallops and risotto were fabulous!
Hotel's location is close to Lenox and Phipps malls. Stay here go to the Tavern at Phipps or Ritz bar for drinks and Hal's on Old Ivy (order the filet) for dinner.
Overall, I would stay at the Intercontinental Buckhead again definitley.
We stayed for two nights at Club Level mid March and will never ever return..
The room looks appealing but it was quite small and from the 22nd floor we had a sensational view of a building site!!
The television was faulty and although we were offered in-room movies for free it did not compensate.
The 'munchies' available at at Club Level must have been tasty but we never appreciated them as they had on every occasion 'run out' and there were only empty plates. At breakfast our daughter was offered a dirty dish to eat her cereal and there were no mugs for coffee so we were given drinking glasses to use.
The location of the Hotel is good only for business and lousy for visitors like ourselves.
Overall we were extremely sad that we even bothered to pay the premium to Club Level and as visitors from the UK we will never return..
I would definately recommend this hotel, it is beautifully presented and the staff are great. We stayed two nights and found the whole experience to be great. The rooms are well presented and the bathrooms are lovely with marble shower and sunken bath.
We ate both nights in the restuarant and the food was superb and they bended over backwards to entertain and look after our 17 month toddler.
The location is good for catching MARTA into Atlanta's downtown, which is about 7 miles away, the traffic into Atlanta is awful so having MARTA was a bonus.
Definately worth staying here if you are looking for a hotel outside Atlanta's downtown.
Stayed here on 2 separate nights in February. Oustanding in every way - couldn't fault any aspect of the hotel. Great staff, lovely rooms and really excellent service.
The ONLY Place to Stay In Atlanta!
I just came back from a long weekend at the Intercontinental. I was there for a conference and could not belive the excellent service. From check in to the wait staff, to bartenders and gift shop attendants - everyone was phenomenal! We were stranded an additional day due to the ice storm (if you are going to be stranded - there is nothing like a 5 star hotel) and everyone was extremely accomodating. The rooms are gorgeous - huge bathtub, marble shower and luxurious beds (feather beds, comforters, pillows). The food was also wonderful -- everything was fresh really good. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat!
I wish every hotel was like this...
This hotel spoiled me forever. I stayed here this past December 2004 and I think I was the first to sleep in the room. I cannot even begin to start with the pros. The bathroom is INCREDIBLE. You DO NOT need to worry about cleanliness here. The carpet is new, the beds are comfortable, the decor is cozy and doesnt at all feel like a hotel room. You walk into the lobby and you feel like you are in the living room of a brand new mansion. The service is amazing. I think the staff had to bend over backwards since they are such a new property and had to live up to the Hype. Usher and Naomi Campbell stayed at this hotel a week before I did and knowing its up to celebrity standards says a lot too. The food is SO expensive though. Make sure you have $ to spend if you plan on eating in. I probably could have lived in this hotel, but did not have the funds for it. Definetely an A+.
WOW! Best Hotel in Atlanta.
I can't rave enough about this new 5 star hotel, from its stunning lobby, its luxurious rooms, and exceptional personable staff. The service is outstanding and every employee we encountered was warm and friendly. This hotel has been open less than 2 months, so everything is new, contemporary and impeccably clean. The hotel's location is also unbeatable and close to both excellent shopping and restaurants. On this visit, I also stayed at the Grand Hyatt which is directly across the street. In my opinion, the ambience, service and rooms at the Intercontinental far surpasses that at the Grand Hyatt. I will be staying here on my next visit to Atlanta.
Stayed just before Christmas 2004. Brand new property. Very upscale and elegant. Awesome rooms with fine appointments. Best hotel bathrooms in Atlanta, and I've stayed at the ATL Four Seasons.
No doubt, this is where I will be staying on my next visit to ATL.
First class experience in Buckhead
We stayed at the InterContienental Buckhead on the second night it was open in November 2004. The lobby is stunning and the room luxurious. The service was also exceptional. We didn't try the restaurant, but the bar offers a great spot for drinks and people watching. The location is right in the middle of Buckhead and close to everything. Checking out took a bit of time, because everybody was still learning the system, but I have no doubt that was an opening weekend issue. I highly recommend this specatular hotel!

... but also mentioned a lot of scientific facts, which I liked personally but may not have been easy enough for all the kids in the audience to understand. But as my mom said, for them it's probably more about just seeing the big birds fly over their heads! It was cool to learn that the great horned owl has eyes that take up 50%25 of its skull space, which doesn't leave much room for developed eye muscles. Instead, it has a very flexible neck (equipped ...
So the area my parents live in has a famous attraction called Callaway Gardens. It's a 2,500 acres of gorgeous land, containing manicured landscapes, golf courses, horticultural centers, chapel, trails, lakes, sandy beach, and more! They hold many special events including concerts and hot air balloon festival! My parents have a family membership, so I went for a drive with my mom. I seem to be spending a lot of time my mom... It's nice! So we went on a scenic drive ...
... 160;It ended up taking 1.5 hours to get the first cable car. Although it is commonly known as Sugarloaf Mountain, there are actually two mountains. Thus the first cable car takes you to Morro da Urca and then a second cable car takes you up to Pao de Acucar. Since it was dusk when I got up to the top of the first mountain, I thought I would quickly grab the second cable car to try to get up there quickly before it ...
Today is our 23/14 anniversary. 23 years together/14 married. We headed over for day 3 of Dragon*con. We decided to attack some more of the enormous Americas Mart shopping area. This time we headed to level 2 section A. We found this amazing artisan who did some fabulous bronze pieces and found a Cthulhu door bell!! It isn't creepy…looks more like a cool octopus. I just adore it. It is going to ...
... was juicy and just as tasty as I thought it would be. The grilled cheeses added more softness and taste than regular buns. It was somewhat more cheesy of course but not overwhelmingly so. The fried eggs were amazing! The egg would definitely be a nice addition to any burger. With the bacon, cheese, onion, tomato, lettuce, and pickles adding the classic taste of a hamburger, ...
