As many as 4,500 hotel rooms have become available in the Washington, D.C., area for the presidential inauguration because advance room contracts were not signed. About 1,500 rooms inside the Beltway and 3,000 outside the Beltway were released. However, with many hotels sold out for the inauguration, the rooms are not expected to be cheap, and they will not be listed on travel Web sites.
