HOJO to Don Draper: Sorry About the Pool, Your Next Stay Is On Us

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - We've all been there. You plan a weekend away only to check-in to your hotel and find that a much desired amenity -- the hotel pool -- is closed. It's enough to make a man mad. But, it shouldn't have to. So, to the Don Drapers of the world, the Howard Johnson® hotel brand would like to say this: We're sorry and your next stay is on us.

Now through May 8, 2012, any traveler with the legal name Don Draper can book a free one-night stay this summer at one of the following select Howard Johnson hotels throughout the U.S.:

  • Howard Johnson Plaza Anaheim Resort
  • Howard Johnson Inn San Diego Sea World
  • Howard Johnson Inn Mystic
  • Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel - Miami Airport
  • Howard Johnson Plaza - Portland
  • Howard Johnson Toms River
  • Howard Johnson Rapid City
  • Howard Johnson Express Inn - Arlington Ballpark/Six Flags

"At Howard Johnson hotels, our owners strive to give each and every guest a great stay, one that creates the same happy-filled memories that the brand's legacy is built upon," said Rui Barros, Howard Johnson brand senior vice president. "Unfortunately, sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. This is our way of showing Mr. Draper that we value him as a guest and hope to welcome him back soon."

To book a reservation, travelers should call their desired participating hotel directly and ask to book the Don Draper rate. Numbers can be found below or at www.hojo.com. Reservations must be booked by May 8, 2012 and the stay must be completed by August 31, 2012. Guests will need to show ID at check-in. For full details contact any participating property.
