“Beautiful hotel with great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

From the moment we checked in, this place was professional. Doormen who actually open the doors, friendly staff with a hello and a wave, nicely appointed room with view of Buckhead downtown, and delicious buffet breakfast. We were college visiting and spent just one night there, but got a great night's sleep. Everything ran smoothly. We walked to the mall and then walked to dinner.

Room Tip: Room on the 20th floor away from elevator was extremely quiet.

Greetings from Atlanta, sambachica. Well, I cannot thank you enough for your review (and for your kind words)! I am confident that we have one of the most professional, accommodating team of associates here at InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, and I'm thrilled that you've witnessed their professionalism firsthand. After all, we wouldn't be a AAA Five Diamond-rated hotel without first-rate guest service. Furthermore, I'm thrilled that you enjoyed a wonderful nights sleep before visiting our local colleges and universities (best of luck with that as well!). Thank you again for your feedback; please come back and let us welcome you again soon! Safe travels.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have stayed at the Intercontinental in the past -- mostly because of location and it allows small dogs...which I did not bring this time. It has a very nice area for the pups to walk and the garden area is a very nice place to lounge outside. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are always clean. However, the 'governors' on the air conditioning need to be taken off! Geez! We are in the south -- we need to be able to set our own temperature in the rooms. I had to call to get this removed -- it can be removed from the computer by calling the front desk. Also, I have never stayed in a room without a "Do Not Disturb" hanger for the door -- you have to request one and they have to come up and bring it to you -- which, is disturbing me. By this point, I'm already irritated with the "extra" stuff that I'm having to take care of just to be comfortable. The night scene at the hotel bar and lobby is pretty lively and entertaining, the appetizers of chicken wings and flatbread pizza were truly awesome! So, I thought the breakfast buffet would be just as pleasing -- it failed terribly!!!! It was $24 per person....my blueberry pancakes were so hard, I could have used it as a disk...there were small sausage and cheese biscuits -- again, when I tried to bite it or cut it, it was so hard that it slipped off the plate. No grits...don't forget -- this is the south. There was bacon and eggs which was fine. No regular toast or biscuits at all...I go back to see if they have made fresh little sausage biscuits and pancakes and they had -- I tried them again, and it was still the same -- as hard as a rock! Basically, I go back and I get a danish to eat with my eggs and bacon. I could not believe I paid that kind of money for bacon and eggs and a store-bought danish. My husband and I were not at all happy with paying for it....we will NEVER eat their breakfast again! Overall, it is a nice place to stay, but there are other hotels in the area that are less expensive and you will get equal or better conditions.

Room Tip: Ask to take the temperature "governor" off the setting as you check in.

Green Features: Although I like to know companies are doing their part for the environment, it should come second to taking care of the customer, being that it is "us" who are purchasing the stays and want to be comfortable during our travels.

My wife and I wanted to spend our first night away from our 6 month old daughter in relaxation. We thought the InterContinental was a great spot to enjoy some time together. The check-in experience was great, and we found the staff extremely friendly and accommodating. However, our experience was downhill from there. The shower had almost no water pressure. We're not unreasonable people and we can live with "weak" water pressure. This was almost non existent. It took 5 minutes to rinse my hair. We decided to try a soak in the gorgeous tub. Once we filled it up the drain wouldn't work and we had to keep the water on to keep water in the tub. Not relaxing. Then, at 3:30AM we were awakened by a huge fight in the next room. We called the front desk and asked for help as it was a physical altercation between a man and a women. They continued to shout and fight until 5AM. It was a disappointing experience for our one chance to get away and relax.

Room Tip: Room 813 had almost no water pressure in the shower.

Just checked out after a four day convention and felt good about my stay. The service struck me as better than most hotels. It wasn't until I got home and realized I forgot my IPod in the docking station in my room. I called the hotel thinking it was likely a lost cause. I was connected to Joe in security. I gave him my story and he diligently tracked down the forgotten IPod and shipped FedEx to me. I'm thrilled and very grateful for the effort and service he provided. Its a great example of how this property treats its guests!!!!

You will be treated like royalty, we got in our room and staff followed us in with a plank of fruit, asked if we needed anything, The view is stunning!!! Their courtyard is like being in someones' personal formal gardens, Food is good in the restaurant, I love their little gift shop and prices are
really quite reasonable. Just had a fabulous time. Within walking distance of lots of great restaurants.Oh, the bathroom is magnificent, marble everywhere. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I was there for a convention and it hit me that they had no free internet for guests, even in the lobby... Weird. While siting in the conference room an enormous cockroach walked on the wall. How dirty is this place????
