Marriott will be rolling out their hot breakfast options for a “limited number of hotels” in their brands, including Residence Inn by Marriott, SpringHill Suites by Marriott, Fairfield by Marriott, and TownePlace Suites by Marriott.

Travel trend: Wellness is an important part of future trips

Many hotel brands suspended hot breakfast or breakfast buffet options at the beginning of the pandemic, and Marriott’s new options will be rolling out beginning in October 2021.

According the Marriott, the breakfast “will feature a delicious morning menu that caters to consumers’ tastes for highly customizable breakfast items, from hot sandwiches with a range of toppings to build-your-own bowls piled high with their favorite ingredients.”

Marriott did their research before rolling out the breakfast options. In a survey conducted by the hotel brand, 75 percent of guests preferred a hot breakfast buffet over continental breakfast and 72 percent feel comfortable eating at a buffet again. Not surprisingly, coffee and tea are the number one most requested breakfast item, followed by hot food.

“Breakfast has long been a celebrated experience during a hotel stay – a moment to gather before exploring a destination or a reliable grab-and-go kickstart to the day,” said Diane Mayer, vice president & global brand manager for Classic Select Brands. “Through extensive consumer insights, we recognize that our guests want to wake up to a nutritious and energizing breakfast made with quality ingredients. We are pleased to introduce our new complimentary breakfast that offers mouthwatering, customizable options with an eye towards sustainability.”
