Trump's D.C. hotel appears to concede election by unblocking hotel rooms

The Trump International Hotel had blocked rooms from being booked during Jan. 16-20, presumably in anticipation of his inauguration, according to, a newsletter by investigative journalist Zach Everson that details goings-on at the hotel.

But according to Everson, those rooms were unblocked this past weekend and are now available for between $886 and $2,225 a night.

The room rates are notably cheaper than the ones for Jan. 5–6. Trump has teased an event for Jan. 6, the day the Electoral College votes will be counted in Congress.
