The Presidential Suite at InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta

by Carrie Cox

Oct 26, 2022

It’s not every day you get a tour of the Presidential Suite at a luxury hotel.

When InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta offered such an opportunity, I did my best to remain calm and composed on the outside while doing my own personal ”super happy dance” on the inside.InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10)

Our guide, sales and marketing director Drew Smith, gave Francis X. Gallagher and I a full tour of the property, kicking things off with the Presidential Suite. Anticipating nearly 1,900 square feet of living space (and an unexpected stop on our tour), I did my best to hold my levels of excitement and enthusiasm in check as Drew opened the front door.

Upon entry, wallpaper with floral shapes outlined in soft shades of grey created the feel of a southern salon using a neutral color palate. Just past the foyer, the expansive living room featured clean lines and what I would call “modern male décor” in tones of chocolate brown, light grey and black. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in an incredible amount of light and featured a phenomenal view of the city, with the fireplace and identical bookshelves serving as the key element (and perfect Instagram-able space) in the room.InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10) InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10) InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10)

The separate dining room seated eight, complete with round dining room chairs that resembled bourbon tumblers around the edges of a black and white marble table. The master bedroom was expansive — again with the gorgeous view — and offered a California king bed with a modern canopy structure (sans canopy). Plus, there’s also your own personal Peloton bike and MIRROR by Lululemon for a private morning workout. Finally, a dual-sided fireplace beckons you to see the master bathroom on the opposite side.InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10) InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10)

This is where my happy dance turned into a full-blown, happy-tango-disco-jitterbug all in one.

The master bathroom was gorgeous. Three large mirrors, two vanity areas, dual sinks and a full-sized jetted tub next to the fireplace made my heart sing. The waterfall shower with floor to ceiling glass doors was extremely spacious, featuring two black in-lays within the honey-colored, marble shower walls. The warmth of the lighting, the golden marble floors and splashes of contemporary gold fixtures gave the master bathroom a more feminine feel than the living area in the most subtle way possible.InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10) InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10)

After seeing the fairly good-sized guest bath and significantly oversized walk-in closet (appearing bigger than my college dorm room), Drew also toured us around a smaller suite, the newly re-designed Club Lounge, the pool deck and graciously ordered us drinks at The Americano Bar.InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10) InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta (10)

And while there’s much more to talk about from my stay at this incredible hotel, I’ll save those details for another post.

Until then, may you find opportunities to do your own happy dance as often as possible.
