8 Hotels With Free Breakfast Included

For many travelers, a hotel room isn’t complete without a complimentary breakfast. While some chains have axed the free meal (such as Days Inn, which reportedly had “possibly the worst hotel breakfast ever”), others keep it alive (like Avid Hotels and Staybridge Suites).

These brands offer free continental breakfasts or even a buffet and often provide build-your-own options like a yogurt parfait bar and a made-to-order omelet station. You can also nab free breakfast perks by earning elite status through loyalty programs and rewards credit cards.

1. Best Western

Typically, you can only get free breakfast in hotel restaurants if you have elite status or are paying with certain credit cards. But there are moderately priced chains that include it as an option for every guest.

Best Western hotels offer a complimentary breakfast at select locations. This includes a selection of cereals, high quality granola and yogurts plus a variety of cooked items.

Marriott typically includes a free breakfast with a stay at many of their brands like Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites and Fairfield by Marriott when you book a standard reservation. However, this is not a chain-wide offer so you must check each hotel location for their specific offerings.

2. Hyatt

Hyatt hotels generally do not offer complimentary breakfast as a standard amenity for all guests. However, the hotel chain does frequently run promotions and packages that include free morning meals as an added perk. Be sure to monitor the Hyatt website and sign up for their email newsletters to be notified of these opportunities.

If you earn Explorist status in the World of Hyatt program, you’ll receive complimentary breakfast for yourself and one additional guest on any full-service stay. This benefit is a major money-saver for families or groups traveling together.

The top World of Hyatt tier, Globalist, offers complimentary breakfast at all properties. Globalist members also get access to the hotel lounge for breakfast if it’s available at the property.

3. Holiday Inn

A bright small breakfast area serves guests with a choice of hot and cold items. There’s also free WiFi throughout the property. This is a great hotel to visit for its convenient location in a busy Manhattan neighborhood and close proximity to Madison Square Garden, Penn Station and Times Square.

A stay at this Holiday Inn Express typically includes a complimentary breakfast for two each day of the stay. This is an amazing perk for IHG Diamond Elite members booking on points, as it’s usually much cheaper than buying breakfast at the hotel.

There are more than 3,000 Holiday Inn Express locations worldwide and while the experience may vary from location to location, they are often a low-cost no-frills option. Some Holiday Inn Express locations have a full service restaurant on the premises while others do not.

4. Holiday Inn Express

With a global footprint of more than 2,900 locations, Holiday Inn Express hotels are popular among business and leisure travelers alike. The brand’s upscale rooms are designed to help guests “Stay Smart” by providing a full range of complimentary amenities, including an Express Start breakfast bar, high-speed Internet access and local calls.

The hotel’s location is perfect for exploring Manhattan, especially since it’s just a few blocks away from Times Square and Hudson Yards. Guests can also enjoy convenient access to Midtown Manhattan and the Garment District.

5. Holiday Inn Club Vacations

Holiday Inn Club Vacations (HICV) is a points-based timeshare membership that makes it possible to travel more than ever. Members can spend extra points for Signature Collection suites at certain resort locations. They can also exchange their HICV resort stay through RCI or Interval International for thousands of other in-network destinations around the world.

The flagship Orange Lake Resort in Orlando, Florida, puts guests close to all the best attractions in the theme park capital of the world. Or, guests can escape to the great outdoors at the Smoky Mountain Resort in Gatlinburg.

Both offer spacious villas and fun-filled resort experiences in exciting destinations. Whether you’re craving beachside tranquility or a thrill-filled city retreat, Holiday Inn Club Vacations has it all.

6. Staybridge Suites

Designed with extended stay and business travelers in mind, this hotel features suites that feature kitchenettes and free laundry machines. It also offers a bar, a gym and a hot tub.

Its breakfast buffet serves a variety of dishes from sizzling bacon to fresh fruits, toasted bagels and muffins, savory eggs and sausages, delicious waffles, and more. Guests can also enjoy coffee and juices.

The breakfast is offered from 6:00 AM on weekdays and 7:00 AM on weekends. The hotel also has a convenient breakfast bar and provides complimentary grocery shopping services. This is a great perk for families who are looking to save money on meals while traveling.

7. Courtyard by Marriott

We all know hotel prices are on the rise, but some hotels have perks that make staying even more worth it. Specifically, free breakfast!

At Courtyard, if you have Marriott Gold status or higher (or the new Platinum status) you can enjoy staff-served continental breakfast each morning. If there’s a lounge, that’s a good option but if the property doesn’t have one or offer an alternative perk for Golds/Platinum members, the hotel will compensate you with a daily restaurant credit.

Hilton offers a similar perk at all properties for Diamond and Gold status holders with a food and beverage credit each day. It’s a nice way to save on breakfast, especially when you can earn elite status with travel credit cards.

8. Hilton

A complimentary breakfast is a nice way to start your day. At Hilton Hotels, you can get a great variety of options, including made-to-order omelets, homestyle potatoes, waffles, and eggs. Some properties also offer specialty items like gluten-free and vegan options.

For Gold and Diamond elite status members staying at Hilton brands in the US, the hotel may provide a daily food and beverage credit instead of a continental breakfast. This can be much more useful than a continental buffet, since you can use the credit for any meal and beverage.

Some Hilton Hotels with free breakfast include access to a lounge for club level guests. These lounges often serve full breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets.
