Harrisonburg Hotels Sold Out For Inauguration Eve

While history is being made in Washington, it’s also being made in Harrisonburg.

“I don’t think we’ve ever sold out for Inauguration Day,” says Gini Boyers, General Manager at the Best Western Harrisonburg Inn.

After the election Tuesday, November 4th, everything seemed normal to Clifford Weber, Regional General Manager of Harrisonburg Hampton Inn Hotels, the Sleep Inn, and Candlewood Suites, but that was short lived.

“By the time we came in Monday morning, six days later, that’s when our email boxes were overflowing, our voicemail was about full, with all of these requests. So it was just that sudden, like it all happened over the weekend,” says Webber.

Travelers have booked up practically every hotel from Washington DC to Harrisonburg for the historic Inauguration Day. Valley residents who plan to attend the event might as well stay in the Valley and travel form home.
