As COVID-19 spread across the country and impacted the travel industry, many hotel brands were quick to eliminate breakfast options, instead opting to offer simple to-go packages or forgoing breakfast at all.

Now, Marriott is reintroducing breakfast to 4 of their brands, and offering a more premium experience for the morning meal.

Brands With New Breakfast Options

Starting this October, and slowly ramping up throughout the fall and winter, Marriott will begin to offer new breakfast options at these 4 brands:

These tend to be lower-end brands in the Marriott portfolio, with 3 of the 4 being extended-stay hotels intended for longer business trips or situations where you need more apartment-like amenities.

What’s on the Menu

Besides offering Rainforest Certified Coffee, these brands will offer breakfast items that meet 3 main criteria — quality ingredients, customizable meals, and sustainable and environmentally friendly products.

Moving beyond the days of powdered eggs, Marriott is hoping to offer more items appealing to the modern traveler, including:

  • Warm breakfast sandwiches
  • Spinach and cheese crustless quiche
  • Sausage, egg, and cheese on a whole-wheat bagel
  • Jalapeno cheddar baked soufflé
  • Fresh fruit and gluten-free selections

Beyond these items, you’ll also find make-your-own options, including yogurt bowls where you can add toppings, or build-your-own breakfast sandwiches with a variety of sauces and salsas. There will be options to customize your meal to have a more personalized and fresh experience. Previously, breakfast selections were more one-size-fits-all, but now there’s an opportunity to grab a base, add toppings, and enjoy it the way you want to.

To help support the environment, Marriott promises cage-free eggs, sustainably-raised pork, and certified coffee, among a number of other measures.

Bottom Line: The new breakfast offerings will initially start with a few select hotels and then roll out to the broader portfolio over the next few months, so don’t expect these new enhancements in every hotel right away.

Final Thoughts

While these new breakfast items certainly aren’t going to put these hotels on the map with their 5-star counterparts, it’s nice to see an improvement to an otherwise stale offering. These properties tend to cater to longer-stay crowds, so having an upgraded meal on a stay beyond just a few nights will certainly be well-appreciated and make the experience feel much more premium.
