The Obamas Will Check Into the Hay-Adams Hotel
President-Elect Barack Obama and his family have found a temporary home in Washington, DC until he takes office--the old-school luxury Hay-Adams Hotel. The Obamas were hoping to stay in the Blair House, an official government guest residence across from the White House but they were told by the Bushes that the house was all booked up until Jan. 15th.
So with the girls starting school on Monday, the Obamas decided to get a room at the Hay Adams. Or make that "rooms." No doubt he is going to take the Presidential Suite--which has views of the White House, a huge master bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, a large dining area and a gaslit fireplace--but also Obama's staff, security team and other aides will need some rooms too.
If you want a peek at Obama, you can try booking a room at the hotel. Rooms were open next week starting at $395 a night for a superior queen guest room.
