They also will receive access to 24-hour concierge service and conference rooms, gym facilities, free wireless Internet access in common areas.”

    Since I’m feeling prophetic, I’m going to just say this: I think this whole inauguration rental craze is slowing down. Act fast JPI before people decide they can experience history just as easily on their couches, as on the cold, packed streets of Washington D.C.
