Interested In Going To The Inauguration? There’s Plenty of Hotel Rooms Still Left

Post By RelatedRelated Post

President Obama will be inaugurated for his second term on Jan. 21 but unlike 2009, DC-area hotels still boast plenty of room.

Some 1.8 million people were at the National Mall for Obama’s first inauguration; this time, city officials expect there will be more than a million fewer visitors. Hotels sold out months in advance in 2009 at a daily of $600-plus, but for 2013 some places still have half their rooms available, and DC residents aren’t too likely to be able to rent out their homes for hundreds of dollars a night.

“Very few hotels are actually sold out at this point, so there’s a lot of availability,” says the CEO of tourism bureau Destination DC.

He expects demand to pick up after Christmas, though second inaugurations tend to attract a lot fewer spectators than first ones. Pricy inauguration packages are still being offered by the city’s finest hotels, but the inauguration itself will be a lot more low-key than the last one, with only three inaugural balls instead of the 10 held in 2009.

  1. Why go to the Inauguration when I got a front row sit on television? Why waste hundreds of dollars on a hotel room when I can relax in my house and watch it live on television? The Inauguration falls on the day we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King birthday. I am more interested in celebrating his birthday than I am in spending money on President Obama.
