Washington DC Hotel Rates Sky Rocket for Inauguration, One Radisson Offers a Sensible Solution
Every four years Washington, DC and its surrounding suburbs fill to the maximum as travelers from around the world come to celebrate a proud American tradition - the peaceful transfer of power from one leader to another. As the dust settles on the election results, all focus turns to travel to witness the swearing in of 45th President of the United States. The Radisson Hotel Baltimore Downtown-Inner Harbor, just 40 miles from the nation's capital, understands not everyone can afford the price to witness history, and is offering rates that are more than half of their Washington, DC downtown hotel counterparts. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 14 in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area.
"Just like four years ago, our phones are already starting to ring for groups and individual travelers that want a city experience just not a city price tag," said Michelle Donovan, Complex General Manager who oversees this hotel. Donovan credits the success of their Inauguration Promotion to the fact that many group planners realize travelers are only going to be in the city one day, so an hour drive makes sense when the savings are so great. She also credits the location of the MARC train, just a quick Uber ride from the hotel, giving guests a direct line into downtown Washington, DC.
The hotel is offering inauguration rates starting at $135 when booked online and paid in advance. The Radisson Hotel Baltimore Downtown-Inner Harbor only requires a minimum two night length of stay, half of the four night requirements that have become standard in Washington, D.C. With 18,500 square feet of meeting space, the hotel also offers function space for group meals and gatherings to celebrate the inauguration. Group packages include options such as breakfast to go, so guests can enjoy their breakfast on the road, as getting to the National Mall early is a requirement for this event.
The hotel currently has guest rooms and meeting space available. As in previous years Donovan expects the hotel will book quickly and suggests those looking to save call soon. Group planners searching for space for ten or more guest rooms may call 410-385-6570 or click here. Watching history and creating a lifelong memory does not have to break the bank.
