I have written about this hotel previously, and it is certainly one of my favorites.
Last evening, while having drinks in the lobby bar, a friend asked why i didnt stay at the St Regis. They offered me a corporate rate and I replied: "Its simple, i like it here. The property is beautiful, the location perfect, and the people are extraordinary....'
One of my guests had met a staff member, Toky, while at an event last week. Toky had created a cocktail that was apparently 'incredible'. Toky didnt let us down. She created another special drink that was FANTASTIC! She went out of her way to help, and did so with a megawatt smile.
We were served thru the evening by Tamara. I will NEVER sit down in the lobby of the Intercontinental without asking for Tamara first. NEVER. She was warm, egaging, helpful, charming, beautiful, and just simply 'perfect'. Every hotel, every upscale lounge, every restaurant,....they should all be so lucky as to have Tamara. She put up with our odd requests, made wonderful recommendations, and we left our table having a wonderful evening...and gaining a new friend.
Now my friends understand why the St. Regis, the Mandarin, and the Ritz (ugh) all pale in comparison to the crisp yet casual southern hospitality here at the Intercontinental Buckhead.
Ive talked before about how wonderful the hotel is. The staff is incredible. From the club lounge on the 21st floor, to the front desk staff, to the spa and pool....everyone is just fantastic.
I am fortunate to live in a wonderful hotel part time in St. Louis, and we also have a wonderful staff. The people can really make the property.
Folks....this is the only place to stay in Atlanta. Period.
PS: The food.....incredible! From the chips to start you off....to the entrees and everything in between. WONDERFUL. Now, thank goodness they have a gym. I need to work off last nights dinner, and the drinks that continued into the club lounge and the mini bar.
My only suggestion: Bar me from the lounge, and take out my mini bar next time. UGH. Im feeling it this morning!
Seee you soon....
