InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta becomes ALHI’s fifth Member hotel in Georgia, and the second in Atlanta within the two most popular areas of the city, by joining the luxurious 414-room Loews Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta’s fashionable Midtown district. ALHI’s portfolio also features Braselton, Georgia’s award-winning and recently expanded Chateau Élan in the picturesque North Georgia foothills, just outside of Atlanta’s beltway. While along the Georgia coast of Sea Island is the Forbes Five-Star The Cloister at Sea Island, plus the acclaimed, AAA Five-Diamond The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club; all outstanding venues for meetings of all types.

The hotel’s 31,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space includes the extraordinary 12,000-square-foot Windsor Ballroom, which features lavish décor and versatile space, and which can accommodate up to 850 for a sit-down dinner or 1,500 theatre-style. The lush Venetian Ballroom Terrace is another appealing option. Additional offerings at the 422-room contemporary hotel include the full-service SPA InterContinental, the award-winning Southern Art restaurant by celebrity chef Art Smith, a complimentary state-of-the-art 24/7 fitness center overlooking famed Peachtree Road, a heated saltwater outdoor pool, a grand lobby, and the popular Bourbon Bar. The hotel is just 14 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
"We are very pleased to expand our ALHI options in Atlanta to serve the incredible demand for meetings and conventions that we receive for the city," said Schultenover. "In addition to its terrific location in upscale Buckhead, this hotel is widely acclaimed for consistently providing a high level of service, and for its very friendly Southern hospitality. It is another great venue in Atlanta for the accounts we serve."
