At HoJo Anaheim, we welcome everyone that walks through the doors to our iconic orange-roofed lobby to be part of our family during their stay. Of course, we have a big, friendly family that keeps HoJo happy and homey everyday for all of our guests. In fact, many of our HoJo family has been checking-in guests, tending to our landscaping, tidying rooms, and everything in between for years and some even for decades! If you’re a longtime fan of HoJo, many of our staff have likely become familiar faces to you and your own family. I recently caught up with a few of our longest-tenured team members to ask them why their jobs at HoJo are so special. Join me today in meeting some of our HoJo staff!
