Sophisticated wood- and marble-lined common areas, modern furnishings and soft cream-colored details set the business-casual vibe at this 22-story hotel in the center of Atlanta’s affluent suburb of Buckhead. Many of the 422 rooms and suites feature contemporary decor, dark wood headboards, jetted tubs and in-room libraries. You can soothe your shopping muscles with a wade in the outdoor lap pool, or indulge in an organic body wrap at the eco-friendly spa. Afterward, sample more than 14 hams and charcuteries paired with Southern cocktails at the Ham Bar. Locals and guests alike love the sophisticated homey fare at Chef Art Smith’s Southern Art Restaurant (think buttermilk fried chicken with whipped potatoes, garlic green beans and red pepper gravy). Cap the night off with a sampling of the more than 70 whiskeys at the wood-lined Bourbon Bar.
In the Area
The InterContinental will put you in the center of the shopping mecca of Buckhead. A stay in the suburbs is certainly not complete without a trip to the mall. Luckily, the hotel is within walking distance of the exclusive designer havens of Phipps Plaza and the Lenox Square Mall. Looking for something more local? Once a warehouse district, Bennett Street now plays host to local clothing boutiques, antique stores and art shops. Afterwards, refuel with the farm fresh vegetable sampler of local produce and sweet, dried, corn-crusted North Georgia Mountain Trout at the packed Horseradish Grill.
How to Get There
While speaking at a conference at this hotel, hotel employees entered my room without my knowledge or permission and moved my belongings to another room.
This included prescription medications.
There was no communication about this. I only found out when I went to the front desk to ask why my key didn’t work.
I asked to speak to a manager and none were available. I left a message for a manager but he never called back.
Worst hotel experience in years!
We were beyond impressed and thrilled with the care and generosity shown to us during our IHG GT Town Hall on October 3rd held at InterContinental Buckhead. Every single staff member we were in contact with that day was so gracious and just absolutely phenomenal. For lunch they even brought grills outside and grilled everything fresh!
Wonderful place to stay, very comfortable for us all. Within walking distance of a couple of great restaurants. Rooms were very quiet and cozy. Wonderful breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. Bathroom with tub was amazing.
