The Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C. has “unblocked” rooms for the week of the presidential inauguration, making them available for online reservations. The move implies the chain has conceded President Donald Trump’s defeat.
Rooms for the week of Jan. 16–20 had been blocked from the hotel’s calendar. They are now available, and room prices have spiked to $3,600 a night from January 5-6.
The price surge could be because Trump recently teased an event in D.C. on January 6, which is the same day the Electoral College votes are counted in Congress.
Biden’s transition team has urged to public to stay home during the inauguration, which will mostly be held virtually.
