I was recently in Atlanta for business and had the chance to visit the Intercontinental Buckhead for a one night stay. Since I'm still a IC "Royal Ambassador" I wanted to see how this property treated elite guests. I qualified for a government rate @ $133 and booked the basic level room. A few days before my stay, my online reservation showed an upgrade to an Executive Suite, but the day before I arrived, I was downgraded to an Executive Club King room. I would have fought it if I'd thought to print the confirmation page showing the suite. Unfortunately, I hadn't taken that precaution.
In the end the room was perfectly fine for a one night stay. The Executive Club floor rooms are fairly typical for an upmarket hotel. The bathroom is just off the entry hall:
Surprisingly, the IC Buckhead does not have pay-per-view movies, so I wasn't able to use the free movie perk that comes with Ambassador status.
The hotel does have a pretty good minibar, though:
I guess that this was my Ambassador gift, though other reviewers have reported receiving a full bottle of wine:
I was given Club access so I popped in for a visit. The club is fairly small, but was not crowded while I was there. There is an open (but modest) bar in the evenings:
There are also two fridges stocked with beer and soft drinks. The club offered a better selection of beer than the minibar, including Stella Artois. The food spread was surprisingly good, though my picture of it is not:
Breakfast in the morning was decent, but not memorable:
