Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in Buckhead on Peachtree Road
  • Marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and separate showers
  • Outdoor pool with plush lounge chairs
  • Classic, elegant decor
  • Luxurious, organic spa
  • Solid fitness center with cardio machines and free weights
  • Professional, friendly staff
  • Restaurant with outdoor patio dining and popular bar
  • Pet-friendly: Pets up to 25 pounds can stay for a fee

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi (both in-room and public)
  • Expensive parking (fee for valet and self-parking)

Bottom Line

The 422-room InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta is classic and elegant -- from the bright, grand lobby with fireplaces and marble columns to the upscale and comfortable rooms. Marble bathrooms in all rooms offer soaking tubs and separate showers, and upper-level rooms have great skyscraper views. The restaurant specializes in southern cuisine, and many restaurants and bars are in easy walking distance from the excellent Buckhead location. Close proximity to Lenox Square Mall and the MARTA transit system are convenient, but the medium-sized pool doesn't impress.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Prime Buckhead location -- great for walking to restaurants and bars -- and also near MARTA transit system

Located in the center of Buckhead's commercial area, there are many restaurants, bars, and attractions a short walking distance from the InterContinental Buckhead. The closest MARTA transit station is less than a five minute walk away. Although this hotel isn't in downtown Atlanta, Buckhead feels quite urban with skyscrapers and busy streets.

About 15 minutes from downtown, Buckhead is an affluent area in uptown Atlanta with tree-lined streets, beautiful mansions, high-rise office buildings, and luxury hotels. It's Atlanta's third largest financial district, and draws tourists and locals with its upscale shops, restaurants, and bars. However, the lively nightlife scene here has died down a bit after an ordinance was passed requiring all bars to close by 2:30 a.m. The area is home to the Atlanta History Center, a 32-acre space with gardens, trails, a historic farm and mansion, and a museum.

  • 30-minute drive to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • 3 to 5-minute walk to various restaurants and bars
  • 3-minute walk to MARTA station
  • 3-minute drive to Philipps Plaza, home to high-end shops and a movie theater
  • 5-minute drive to Atlanta History Center
  • 10-minute drive or 30-minute subway ride to the Atlanta Botanical Garden
  • 12-minute drive or 12-minute subway ride to the High Museum of Art
  • 14-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to World of Coca-Cola
  • 14-minute drive or 28-minute subway ride to the Georgia Aquarium
  • 14-minute drive or 26-minute subway ride to Centennial Olympic Park and the Fountain of Rings
  • 15-minute drive or 28-minute subway ride to the Georgia Dome
  • 16-minute drive or 24-minute subway ride to the CNN Center

 Bottom Line

The 422-room InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta is classic and elegant -- from the bright, grand lobby with fireplaces and marble columns to the upscale and comfortable rooms. Marble bathrooms in all rooms offer soaking tubs and separate showers, and upper-level rooms have great skyscraper views. The restaurant specializes in southern cuisine, and many restaurants and bars are in easy walking distance from the excellent Buckhead location.
