Washington hotels are getting booked up and charging high rates for President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration Jan. 20. Visitors could stay in nearby Maryland or Virginia. But if crowds make that impossible, Sen. Bob Casey has a tip. He's urging people to stay in his state of Pennsylvania. He's sent his Senate colleagues a list of hotels, some of which are as close as 90 minutes away.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Washington hotels are getting booked up and charging high rates for Barack Obama's inauguration. People could stay in nearby Maryland or Virginia. But if crowds make even that impossible, Senator Bob Casey has a tip. He's urging people to stay in his state of Pennsylvania. He sent his Senate colleagues a list of Pennsylvania hotels, some of which are as close as 90 minutes away. You too could almost see the Washington Monument from your hotel room. It's Morning Edition.
