Best Hotels for Inauguration 2013


The Inauguration of President Obama’s second term is officially January, 21, 2013. But the days leading up to the ceremony will be abuzz with galas and parties. Several Washington area hotels have already filled up for the weekend. But here is a listing of several that still have rooms available. Many hotels require a non-refundable payment in full at the time of booking and a minimum 4-night stay starting Friday, January 18, 2013. And many have raised their rates considerably for the holiday weekend. These are hotels close to the White House and U.S. Capitol and some on this list are in the nearby suburbs and close to Metro stops.
