InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta recently completed its two phases of enhancements on the heels of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts celebrating its 75th anniversary this past April. The first stage was unveiled in May, and included the addition of The Americano from celebrity chef Scott Conant, and a refresh of the meeting and event space. Now, the second, final phase debuts with the unveiling of a new Club Lounge, Signature Suites and a spa rebrand.
Here’s a closer look at the final phase of the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta’s transformation:
- The Club Lounge, on the 21st floor, now includes dedicated Concierge services and separate areas for relaxation, light dining, drinks and business. Daily culinary offerings include welcome drinks, a breakfast buffet, snacks and beverages, evening drinks and canapes.
- Boasting crisp whites, warm gray and jeweled emerald velvet, the Signature Suites boast an original floral work of art by local artist Niki Zarrabi. In the Presidential Suite, find the Mirror Workout system with access to trainers and classes, among other changes.
- The Spa at InterContinental Buckhead now partners with Biologique Recherche to offer an elevated experience with immersive packages and treatments.
“The official completion of the extensive transformation represents the culmination of tireless work on the part of multiple partners,” said Gerasimos Ferentinos, general manager, 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.”
