Our redesigned Howard Johnson guest rooms are a nod to our mid-century modern beginnings. When Howard Johnson himself designed the guest rooms of the past, he incorporated the best of design with the latest amenities to make his guests happy. And we are doing it again with a modern twist on our classic roots, including orange accents and high-tech guest room amenities like USB-equipped lamps and backlit mirrors. Check out some of our redesigned rooms below as they pave the way in this exciting design transformation. 

HoJo's Sweet Escape

Our Candy-Filled Pop-Up Event
From August 22–23, we gave New Yorkers a sweet peek at our redesigned rooms with a pop-up space in downtown Manhattan. The event featured an all-candy recreation of our retro-inspired rooms that tapped into the modern design and playful nostalgia of our new look. Guests of all ages enjoyed one-of-a-kind photo ops and took home sweet treats from the event.
