Airbnb Expects Seven Times More Inauguration Visitors in DC Region Than 2013
Airbnb reservations for the past three inaugurations
The jump in Airbnb rentals for Donald Trump’s inauguration will set records in the DC region.
Airbnb expects 10,000 visitors to shack up with DC area hosts during inauguration in January, seven times as many arrivals compared to President Obama’s second inauguration when Airbnb was obviously not the juggernaut in the short-term rental space that it is now.
“The current record for local guest arrivals — 8,100 — was set on October 8, 2016 as a result of Game 2 in the Washington Nationals’ playoff series with the Los Angeles Dodgers,” a new report from Airbnb notes.

Since Election Day, Inauguration Day listings on Airbnb increased by 80 percent at a median price of $125 per night. Neighborhoods like Adams Morgan, H Street, Columbia Heights and Shaw are seeing the most bookings. As to be expected, the 10,000 Airbnb visitors during inauguration dwarfs the number of guest reservations for the weekends before (770) or after (479) the presidential festivities.
