While the Loews Madison Hotel is sold out for the 56th Presidential Inauguration the hotel has created a unique "Lincoln Bedroom" package, an overnight experience to commemorate Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial celebration and the historic inauguration of Barack Obama as the country's 44th President, that guests can experience after the January 20, 2009 festivities.

The Madison will present a rendition of The White House's Lincoln Bedroom, which will feature a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation "Honest Abe" signed to free the slaves as well as a copy of Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address. A replica of Lincoln's rocking chair and a full-sized bed with decorative headboard and footboard highlight various historical memorabilia in the bedroom.
