Buckhead may be borderline snooty, but its InterContinental is not. This hotel is the perfect locale for those coming to town to do some damage on their credit cards at Phipps Plaza and Lenox Mall, both just a quick walk away; there are also plenty of top restaurants located nearby along Peachtree Road. Rooms are spacious and quiet and outfitted with ultra-comfortable bedding, and most have shower stalls and tubs. Suites and executive-level rooms include a daily cocktail hour. The adjoining Bourbon Bar has an excellent selection of spirits, as its name might imply, and restaurant Southern Art—with its colorful artwork, fun furnishings, and ham bar (yes, a ham bar!)—serves three meals a day with a focus on down-home Southern cuisine.
