Orange Wednesday Howard Johnson 50% off Dec 4, 2013

Howard Johnson may seem like hotel slumming for some loyalty travelers, although a bit more politically correct and more affordable than ‘glumming’ it, a phrase Stephen Colbert coined in the November 12 episode of The Colbert Report.

HoJo Orange Wed

Howard Johnson Orange Wednesday will feature 42 hotels across the United States and 17 hotels in Canada at 50% off on Orange Wednesday, December 4, 2013. There will be a limit of 3 reservations taken at each participating hotel on a first-booked order. Hotel stays must be completed by February 28, 2014 using this 50% savings offer.

You’ve heard of Black Friday. You’ve heard of Cyber Monday. Well, now HOJO is happy to present Orange Wednesday!

What is Orange Wednesday you ask?

Orange Wednesday is December 4th, the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving in which travelers can save 50% off when they book up to a three night stay at participating Howard Johnson hotels. To book, just call one of the participating hotels directly using the numbers below and say you want to book the Orange Wednesday rate for an upcoming stay.

This special rate can only be booked between 12:01 AM EST through 11:59 PM EST on Wednesday, December 4th and only the first three travelers to call and book at each hotel will receive the discounted rate. Get those dialing fingers ready!

See you at HOJO and Happy Orange Wednesday!

Howard Johnson is a hotel brand in Wyndham Rewards. You might also want to check out Wyndham Rewards 2,014 bonus point offer for stays through January 31, 2014. This 50% rate discount offer seems to me like it will also apply to the 2014 promotion.



HoJo needs to do some editing to their announcement. Marina and San Diego are incorrect in their address and phone numbers. I placed the correct information here.

  • The first three callers to contact each of the 50 US and Canadian properties listed above participating in the Orange Wednesday promotion will receive 50% off the participating property’s rate of the day for up to three nights.
  • In order to receive discount, guest must call and book directly with a participating property by mentioning the Orange Wednesday promotion only on December 4th (12:01 am – 11:59 pm EST) and complete stay by February 28, 2014.
  • Blackout dates apply. Discount has no cash value and cannot be combined with any other discount, offer, coupon or promotion.
  • Discount will be taken off of individual property’s rate(s) for date(s) booked.
  • Only the first three callers to contact a participating property, mention this promotion and book directly with the property within the promotion period will receive the 50% discount.
  • One reservation and one room per person.

HoJo Marina

On a personal note: Hey Mom & Dad, we can have a family reunion for 3 nights in Marina at $27 per night when you visit in December. That is even less than an IHG PointBreaks night. Being one of the first three reservations should be easy since the Orange Wednesday website has the wrong phone number for the Howard Johnson Marina.

Seriously though, there are some good Howard Johnson locations with low rates for Orange Wednesday reservations on December 4. I’ll try to remember and post this offer again on Tuesday, December 3.

Hopefully the webpage will have the correct hotel phone numbers and addresses by then.
