InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta announces has completed a full-property reimagination, inviting a new chapter of Southern sophistication to this Buckhead retreat.
The leading hotel underwent two phases of enhancements over the last year, on the heels of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts’ 75th anniversary. The first stage was completed in late May 2022 with the unveiling of Atlanta’s newest culinary hotspot, The Americano, an Italian-inspired steakhouse; a redesign of the hotel’s lobby lounge to The Great Hall; the addition of Caffé Americano; and a remodel of the extensive premier meetings and events space.
Debuting this month, the second and final phase of the redesign includes the unveiling of a new 21st-floor club lounge, signature suites, and a rebrand of the hotel’s spa in partnership with skincare brand, Biologique Recherche.
“The official completion of the extensive transformation represents the culmination of tireless work on the part of multiple partners,” says Gerasimos Ferentinos, general manager of InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta. “We are proud to reintroduce InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta to both international and local travelers alike. It is our priority to deliver memorable
moments to guests by offering the epitome of luxury, dedicated staff, exceptional amenities, and a warm ambiance.”
Located on the hotel’s 21st floor, the transformed InterContinental Club Lounge offers world-class service and details with dedicated concierge services, which include team members trained with Les Clefs d’Or Concierge standards, to assist travelers with every need and distinctly separate areas created for relaxation, light dining, drinks, and business discussions–including a Club Lounge Boardroom and secluded nook, ideal for private calls or intimate conversations.
The InterContinental Club Lounge experience includes access to daily culinary presentations with welcome drinks, an American breakfast buffet, all-day snacks and beverages, and evening drinks and canapés from 6 to 8 p.m.
Suites feature bureaus and bookshelves finished in a warm taupe lacquer while a lace-like rug pattern evokes charm. Pulling through from the lobby, an original floral art piece by local artist Niki Zarrabi is displayed on the wall for an added decorative touch above a custom luggage bench. By contrast, the Presidential Suite reflects a bolder yet refined design with accent metals, wood texture, and stone throughout, along with new art, honey-toned finished floors, an upgraded fireplace, and an iron canopy bed, all with downtown Atlanta views. The Presidential Suite also features a state-of-the-art Mirror workout system with complimentary access to certified trainers and classes.
The Spa at InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta has partnered with Biologique Recherche to offer guests a new spa experience. As a part of the rebrand, The Spa introduces immersive packages and treatments incorporating the brand’s professional skincare and result-driven products.
Spa-goers are encouraged to indulge in a spa treatment of their choice or in a full day of pampering. The Spa is connected to the hotel’s outdoor saltwater pool and state-of-the-art fitness center.
The restaurant Americano recently announced the launch of its lunch programming. In addition to some of the classic items featured on The Americano’s dinner menu– such as a variety of steak options and pasta staples such as the pasta al Pomodoro and tagliatelle Bolognese—the lunch menu features a selection of sandwiches, salads, and lighter entrees.
