Obama Family Returns To Chicago After Hawaiian Vacation With Plans To Move To D.C. Hotel

Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha ended Hawaiian vacation on Thursday and flew back to their home state of Chicago.

After a 12-day vacation that included golfing, working out at the local Marine Corps Base, paying respects to his late grandmother, visiting the zoo with Malia and Sasha, and strolling shirtless on the beach, Obama and his future first family are heading to Washington D.C. after making a pit stop in Chicago.

This weekend the Obamas will take up temporary residence at the historic Hay-Adams hotel in D.C. for two weeks before moving into the Blair House, the official government guest residence, on January 15 and finally settling into the White House after the inauguration on January 20.

The family’s stay at the swank Hay-Adams hotel which runs upwards of $700 for a regular room to $6,000 for a Presidential Suite is being funded by private transition funds.
