PARSIPPANY, N.J. (October 4, 2011) – Basketball fans throughout the country can now receive two complimentary tickets to a Harlem Globetrotters show of their choice just by staying two consecutive nights at any one of nearly 400 participating Howard Johnson® hotels.
The promotion, dubbed “Double Dribble,” celebrates the Howard Johnson brand’s renewed sponsorship as the official hotel brand of the Harlem Globetrotters’ 2012 North American tour, and is available to residents of the U.S. and Canada through March 31, 2012, while supplies last.
“This is the Howard Johnson brand’s third consecutive year of sponsoring the Harlem Globetrotters,” said Rui Barros, Howard Johnson brand senior vice president. “What better way to celebrate the continued success of this great relationship than to provide our guests with complimentary tickets to one of the Globetrotters’ many fun-filled, smile-inducing performances.”
A complete list of Harlem Globetrotters shows available through the promotion may be found at www.harlemglobetrotters.com/hojo, while full promotion details are available at www.hojo.com. Reservations must be made through www.hojo.com or 1-800-I-GO-HOJO (1-800-446-4656) using the rate code SFA. Show tickets will be mailed approximately two weeks after reservations are made.
In addition, travelers who prefer a discounted rate in lieu of tickets can save 15 percent off the Best Available Rate, regardless of length of stay, by using Globetrotter Fan Code “LPHT” when booking a room. This discount cannot be combined with any other offer and the rate is subject to availability. Blackout dates and other restrictions may apply.
