An Airbnb rental in Cleveland.
In light of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, Airbnb has aired its projections for short-term stays in host cities Cleveland and Philadelphia during the events. Not surprisingly, DC will be sending the most Airbnb guests to both cities.
Cleveland, which is hosting the Republican National Convention is projected to see four times as many guests as is typical, with 1,900 guests spending a median of $300 per night. One out of five of those visitors will be from DC.
Next week in Philadelphia, the Democratic National Convention is expected to draw 2.5 times as many guests as usual to the city of brotherly love, with 5,200 guests spending a median of $100 per night. About 16 percent of those visitors will be from DC.
DC residents may have to brace themselves for an Airbnb influx during inauguration in January, as the number of visitors to the city booking through the site is expected to be four times the norm at that time. Just don’t expect to make your rent for the month during that time by hosting.
