Washington, DC (June 21, 2013) – On Thursday, June 20, The Willard Intercontinental Hotel graciously opened its doors to welcome General Managers Andrew Coney and Alvaro Rey, of the InterContinental London Westminster and the Intercontinental London Park Lane respectively, to celebrate the long-lasting relationship shared by London and Washington, DC.
The exclusive networking event hosted guest speaker Myron Belkind, Vice President of the National Press Club and former Chief of the Associated Press London Bureau (1980 – 2001), who fully explained the unique political heritage and their powerful designations.
The Intercontinental London Park Lane was once the site of a royal residence and is located just steps from Hyde Park and in view of Buckingham Palace. Three lounges and two restaurants are the perfect setting for some good people watching. This is the prime location to take a walkabout on South Bank, from County Hall to Borough Market.
Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List 2013, the Intercontinental Westminster is located in the heart of Parliment. Its prestigious façade compliments a beautifully renovated interior within an historic building, Queen Anne’s Chambers, to create superb and spacious accommodation and the sophisticated Blue Boar Smokehouse and Bar. If exploring London is your aim, this hotel is within minutes of Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament.
