WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - January 20, 2017 is the biggest night ever for Airbnb arrivals in the District of Columbia, according to a new report released Friday.
More than 15,100 guests are expected to arrive during the three-day period of Inauguration activities.
The bookings are an 800 percent increase since Election Day 2016 and are expected to bring in more than $10 million in economic impact to D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
Hosting in D.C.? Good news for you, too. Collectively, hosts will earn more than $5.9 million from reservations. This is 10 times the amount made during this same weekend in 2013.
Airbnb guests are expected to spend $4.7 million at area restaurants, retailers, cafes and more.
