Surprise! Washington D.C. has the Most airbnb Listings per Capita

DC Has More Airbnb Listings Per Capita Than New York or Los Angeles

From the Washingtonian, November 13,  2015

There is a proposal in front of the DC Council right now that seek curtail the company’s reach here. A bill pushed by UNITE-HERE Local 25, the union representing the city’s hotel workers, would limit hosts to renting out rooms in occupied units instead of whole houses or apartments. The city’s hotel industry briefly proposed legislation that would have capped the number of properties an individual Airbnb host could list on the site to five (none of which could be located in the same building), but it was withdrawn last week.
