Does your hotel reservation include breakfast?
When booking a reservation for a hotel room, perhaps breakfast is the furthest thing from your mind. If it is, then the next morning you may wake up ready to start your day with a nice breakfast only to find out that the hotel does not offer breakfast service. Needless to say this last minute realization is disappointing , worse so on an empty stomach. Avoid disappointment and hunger pains by planning ahead and selecting a hotel that includes breakfast or at the very least, be prepared that your hotel of choice may not offer breakfast.
What to Expect from Hotel Breakfast Service
With each hotel comes different breakfast service policies and practices. Here are some of the things that you can expect from hotel breakfasts:
Extra Cost or Included in the Room Rate – Sometimes, your room rate will include a complimentary breakfast. If the room rate does not include breakfast and breakfast is available, you have the option of paying extra to start your day the right way – well fed.
Serving Styles – Some hotels offer your choice of buffet style breakfasts served within a specified time frame. Whether or not a buffet is available to diners, you may also have the choice of sitting down to enjoy your breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant – if the hotel has a restaurant. Additionally, if you’re lucky, your hotel also offers the option of room service to serve your breakfast right to your hotel room without having to head down to the restaurant.
Food Availability – Not everyone wants to start their day with a cold bowl of cereal for breakfast. Maybe you’re in the mood for a hot meal. Having the option to choose between a hot meal and a cold meal is always nice for guests. Hotel breakfasts may include scrambled eggs, pancakes, oatmeal, cold cereal, pastries, breads, bagels, juice, freshly brewed coffee or tea, fresh fruit and more.
It is important to note that it is not common practice for breakfast to be included in a hotel’s room rates. Generally, there are additional fees for breakfast. When booking a room online, you’ll want to check out what the room package includes and whether or not it includes breakfast.
What to Expect From Breakfast At The Morris House Hotel
When you book a room at the beautiful and historic Morris House Hotel you can expect a complimentary European-style continental breakfast. Guests have the option of enjoying a hot meal or a cold meal depending upon mood and preference. Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a bowl of cold cereal with a side of fresh fruit.
Whatever it is that you’re in the mood for, it’s there and most importantly it’s fresh. Everything is fresh, even the baked breads and pastries. When you stay at the Morris House Hotel, you’ll enjoy delicious house-made honey & flax granola, Philly Fair Trade coffee, a wide-selection of quality teas and much more. Although the Morris House Hotel is a hotel, it has the charm and appeal of a B&B for guests.
When Making Your Hotel Accommodation Selection
Before making your next hotel reservation, you’ll want to give yourself a heads up about the breakfast options. If breakfast is important to you and you’d like to pamper yourself with a complimentary breakfast to top off your already enjoyable stay (or not) at your hotel of choice, then go for it.
If you don’t mind paying a little extra for breakfast or if you’re really not a breakfast person anyway, then don’t worry about it. If you choose to select a hotel that includes breakfast, then you’ll also want to consider the quality of the food if that’s of importance to you.
If you’re not a big fan of processed foods, consider choosing a hotel that offers fresh foods to start your day with. One thing’s for sure, though, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Starting your day with a healthy breakfast gives you the energy needed to get through the day, so make sure to start your day right when staying at any hotel.
