Historical Traveller Reviews of Intercontinental Buckhead Hotel
The breakfast buffet had all our favorites. It's served in the french restaurant adjacent to the lobby and had french influences, with chocolate croissants and french pastries. Coffee was a european roast. Smoked salmon, made to order omelettes and fresh squeezed orange juice were top notch.
We both had spa treatments. I had a body scrub/massage combo that was very relaxing. You can pick your own fragrant essensial oil that you like before you start.
The pool was huge and peaceful, despite construction on Peachtree. There were plenty of umbrellas to stay in the shade and also cabanas with closeable white drapes that reminded me of the Delano hotel in S. Beach.
The one hitch was a recommendation by the concierge to go to the Palm steakhouse over Morton's, which both are within walking distance. We went to the Palm but a dreary interior, unkempt tourists, and a sour tasting kir royal made us up and leave. We walked next door to Morton's and were treated like movie stars (both restaurants cost about the same). Morton's wine list was also better. It's a strange coincidence, but that is not the first time a concierge tried to steer me toward the Palm restaurant and I had a bad experience.
Now, I am trying to convince my husband to return for our anniversary next month......

Better Than First Classfrom Oceandogg
My first impression of the hotel was Impressive. The structure stood sleek and modern. The valets, who seem like a small friendly army, met you as soon as you wheels stopped in the driveway. They made you instantly feel welcomed. The check in process was seamless it took maybe minutes. The clerk was professional and very friendly and engaging as was all of the staff. You were made to feel that they enjoyed helping you and were not just going through the motions.
Our room was located on the 7th floor on a corner, which overlooked the majestic Peachtree Rd. The bed was pillow-top and very heavenly. The room was without a doubt the cleanest, neatest and up-to-date I have every stayed in. We recently stayed at the Omni also in Atlanta, which is a very nice property, but it does not come close to the Intercontinental. The Bathroom was huge with a condo-sized bathroom. In fact the room was huge, clean and modern. It was decorated with Class, not just placing furniture into a hole. Awesome rooms.
Don forget to stop at the bar XO it looks a little snobby, but its not once you in it’s a very inviting place. Great people Super service. The Terrace just outside the bar that sit slightly above Peachtree Rd in the place to sip drink and watch the world go back. Jermain will make sure you feel welcome.
This is a great property. BETTER THAN FIRST CLASS!!!
Beautiful property, pricy food and beveragefrom SteveBazakas
My only complaint is the price of food and wine. I was going to order room service pancakes for breakfast, and after the fee and tip, it would have cost $25! (without beverages). I was shocked to see that even in the hotel restaurant, they cost $16! Pancakes? I ended up ordering a muffin for $2.75. It was the size of a baby's fist. I expect a healthy mark up on wine, but 4 times the retail price? Come on guys, you don't need to do this.
Great hotel!from gingerk99
The room was great---the bathroom was huge and had a great big sunken tub. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was spacious. I had room service a few times, it was great each time, and the servers were very friendly. One of the times, he insisted on setting up my tray, pouring my milkshake, opening the ketchup, and turning the tv towards me! I almost laughed.
There is internet there, and although they say there is a fee, I used it for free a few times each day. No problems there.
It's close to the MARTA line, a quick walk, and a fairly quick walk to the mall too, maybe 15 minutes at the most. There are also a couple of restaurants in walking distance, like Maggiano's, I believe.

Great Hotel!!!from Harry99
What a great place to stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
We took a dip in the pool right after we got there and it was pleasant because it was heated and the sun had already gone down for the day. I loved the fact that there were fresh flowers everywhere in the hotel - just a nice touch! The facilities for the wedding reception (Ballroom) were wonderful. We also had a lovely brunch the next morning. The food and service during both events were excellent! The bed turned down with a chocolate and a flower at the end of the night was just what we needed after a long night of celebrating and dancing. Everyone from the bell hop to the front desk attendants to the bar tenders to the servers that worked at the wedding reception were extremely friendly. This hotel was wonderful all around and I would definitely recommend it to others!!
First Class Hotelfrom Deb32
Dirty, although pretty, hotelfrom TravelBug35
The television was not working (only "free" channels could be viewed, except ESPN news) and a light was out in the sink area of the bathroom. A workman came to check on these things about 15 minutes after our arrival, but did nothing. We called several people and an hour later were moved to the room next door.
That room also had a light out over the sink and the vanity light (for makeup and grooming) was also inoperable. The worst part came when we went to make decaf following the concert and discovered used coffee grounds in the maker. Yuck!
The hotel and rooms were beautiful, but the filth was inexcusable. The manager offered us a free upgrade to Club Level on our next visit, but there will not be a next visit for us.
Top Local Tips for Atlanta
SUV beware Take the hotel's complimentary ride to the shopping areas. We never got to Lenox Square but Phipps Plaza is a treat. It's super high end retail with Versace, Tiffany's, Jimmy Choos, and more. Three levels of elegance and goodies. But driving in the area is really scary for bigger vehicles. Our SUV barely fit in the lane and there are a zillion roads with a zillion more special turn lanes. Let someone else do the driving (although walking is certainly a consideration... everything is close).
Great South African restaurant in Buckhead! Wonderful restaurant, "10 degrees south"
Take the Marta If you are staying at any of the big hotels in the Buckhead section, you'll find a MARTA stop very close. We took it back to the Airport- 14 stops- but very quick and easy. Since it was so easy and only cost a few $2.75- it would be nuts to spend for a limo or cab.
