The Atlanta airport is very big! We had to ride a subway to get to our concourse. We walked around in the food court and i got a burrito. We still have one more hour until our flight takes off so we're just sitting around waiting. I am a little nervous about this long flight, but it will be ...
... it's the contrasts that stick with me. On the one Han you have the small and harsh cells. Open to the elements and probably v v cold in the winter months. The isolation cells that would have been depressingly dark and kept prisoners locked up in for 23 hrs a day. But then, in contrast, there are the stunning views towards SF and the Golden Gate Bridge. Which the prisoners would have seen each and every day - reminding them of their lost liberty. More to ...
... was not anything like it is today. The carving was actually started in 1924 but did not get completed until 1970. It was interrupted by financial, political and artistic problems which included two world wars, the Depression and limited technology and so there was no work on it from 1924 to 1964 little if any work was done. So that means when we were there in 1963, the only part of the carving would have been Jefferson Davis' head. It's an interesting story but ...
Today was all about the Civil War, or the War between the States, or the War of Northern Aggression, depending on where you are from. Those from the south usually refer to it as the War of Northern Aggression, since after all, the North did attack the South.

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta
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.
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!
We stayed for two nights at Club Level mid March and will never ever 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!
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!
