Obama’s official date for moving into the White House may not have arrived yet. But he still gets a piece of the cake in advance. President-elect Barack Obama and his family will be moving into Washington DC. They will be staying in the Hay-Adams hotel through January 15 (the traditional date for the new presidents and their families to move into the Blair House). He requested the Blair House officials to move into the Blair house two weeks in advance so their kids Sasha and Malia could attend school from 5th January at Sidwell Friends.
The Hay-Adams pent-house suite is usually rented out anywhere between $2,500-$5,000 per night. They must likely have rented out more than one suite since the presidential suite has a single bedroom. The living room overlooks the White House, Lafayette Park, and St John’s Church. The master bedroom overlooks the magnificent White House.
