We got a great hotwire deal at the Intercontinental. The room was on the small side (although not by Atlanta standards--having stayed in some tiny rooms downtown) but it was well appointed. Bathroom was gorgeous and spacious with marble tile and a deep soaking tub. The bed was a dream in terms of comfort. The staff was gracious. A small problem with the bathroom sink was fixed within a couple of hours while we were out to dinner. The bar is great for drinks and people watching and on the Friday night we were there had a really good jazz trio. It was a perfect spot for hanging out and relaxing. Location is convenient to restaurants and bars. My only complaint was that check in was slow: not enough clerks and too many in line, but it they did attempt to remedy the situation.
Pros: bed, bar, bathroom
