There are so many things that set this hotel apart, and make it refreshingly luxurious! I say "refreshingly" because the luxury is not heavy handed or pretentious - they get it just right. Refreshing! The special nature of this hotel became evident right from the start. As I was waiting in a (short) line (3 people, 3 people working check in), a member of the front lobby team approached us with a tray holding water bottles, and offered them all of us. How lovely. Then, at check in, Vira warmly welcomed me and noticed I had several reservations in the coming week - we are welcoming family members on several different days. I can't say enough about how much she did to help me streamline my reservations, worked to get the rooms we needed, and then on top of it all, upgraded us, and made personally sure that we had a room we would love for this special week. She worked on this over the course of two days, personally seeing to it that things would be perfect. The front desk staff is so smart, and so geared toward being warm and surpassing needs and expectations. I feel like I now have friends and colleagues, and am now committed to the Intercontinental. The hotel is a wonderful blend of current/ hip and luxurious. The lobby seating offers something for everyone - very cool wing chairs that are cozy and private for solo travelers or those having intimate conversations. Then there are groupings of regular upholstered chairs for friends and colleagues. The stylish floor lamps have charging stations discreetly in them - what a great touch. Outside the lobby is a lovely garden with fountain feature and stylish seating - very quiet and pretty. The music quietly playing in the transition spaces of the lobby is actually spa-like - the hotel relaxes you immediately. The outdoor pool is surrounded by teak loungers with cushions and the pool itself is long enough for laps. You can choose to valet or self park in the secure parking lot under the hotel. Very convenient for those who will be going in and out frequently. The location is fabulous - many excellent restaurants to choose from in walking distance, and umbrellas available for borrow. The rooms are clean, well decorated, and again, a nice mix of fresh luxury. Each room has a deep soaking tub in addition to a shower. Room service was prompt, and special requests dealt with perfectly. Honestly, they have covered every single thing, and overlaid it with warmth and a desire to please. I couldn't be more impressed. Job well done InterContinental Buckhead.
