Howard Johnson Opens First Hotel in South Korea

Howard Johnson has opened a hotel on the shores of South Korea’s leading island destination, Jeju.

The 241-room oceanfront Howard Johnson Jeju Seogwipo Harbor hotel, the first Howard Johnson in Asia outside of China, is operating under a franchise agreement with local South Korean developer, Windum AMC.

Much loved by honeymooners and holiday makers, Jeju Island is known for its beautiful beaches, waterfalls and volcanic landscape of craters and lava tubes. Hallasan Mountain, a dormant volcano, features hiking trails and a crater lake at the summit, with Gwaneumsa Temple nearby.

Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said, “Howard Johnson hotels are grounded in quality service and an unwavering commitment to making guests feel at home. It's the same warm, friendly experience we've offered for decades – because we know that honest hospitality never goes out of style. With its prime position by the ocean, Howard Johnson Jeju Seogwipo will provide a unique and memorable hotel stay experience for visitors to Jeju Island.”

All 241 guestrooms feature a balcony with either ocean or mountain views as well as beds topped with DuPont cotton duvets.

For parents on-the-go, the family-friendly hotel provides a service for babies with complimentary rental of bathtubs, cribs, bottle sterilisers and bed safety guards.
