It's Good to Have a Room, Just in Case

All booked: Geffen, Katzenberg, Spielberg have rooms for the inauguration. Do you? (2004 Bloomberg photo)

Is this whole inaugural housing crisis overhyped? We just heard about some out-of-town guys who didn't bother reserving until the day after the election and still had no trouble finding a primo crash pad!

Okay, so they're the biggest moguls in Hollywood -- and their crash pad is the Four Seasons.

Jeffrey Katzenberg told our colleague Leslie Yazel that he called the hotel Nov. 5. "Steven [Spielberg], [David] Geffen, we reserved that day -- boom!" the DreamWorks Animation CEO said. Just like that! "Of course, I have no idea what room I'm in, but at least I'm there."

So he's coming to the inauguration? Maybe, maybe not. Katzenberg seemed concerned about the crowds, the long lines -- stuff you wouldn't expect to be a problem for a guy who donated more than $30K to Obama and Democratic presidential funds and helped raised a million or so beyond that.

Katzenberg was in D.C. on Friday to promote his new 3D film, "Monsters vs. Aliens"; then it was off to NYC for the premiere of "Shrek the Musical." Not a great time to open a Broadway show, huh? "I may need to be on the street handing out fliers," he said.
