Free or not…………….I do not do these breakfast buffets.
However, my son and family find them a great convenience when traveling with the children. The children can eat and then go back up to room for potty duty and to brush teeth and gives us a good start on the road.
I might sit and have a cup of coffee just to watch the antics of some people. This is a wonderful place to watch thieves in action. I stare in amazement as people cram their handbags with fruit, load their kids down with yogurt cups and fruit and if pasteries are wrapped, they even take handfuls of them for the road. Many people fill their themous or coffee travel cups with coffee, too. Mommies take cartons of milk for their children. One time I saw a man come in and empty a whole bowl of oranges into a cardboard carton. As I watch this each time, I wonder how these people feel such a sense of "entitlement" for what they are doing.
These people, stealing all this food, should be so ashamed of themselves but they seem to think it is perfectly acceptable. We stay in hotels more than the average family and what I am describing is usual and not just a one or two time incident. We see it all the time.[xx(]
I am guessing "your favorite hotel" is Embassy Suites? If not, where?
here are the "levels" as I see them along with my personal habits:
1) Buffet or breakfast with eggs to order and usually has a lox area. – I’ll eat here. I typically rise no later then 4 am but if I’m late and they’ve served any more than 2-3 people, I skip the buffet and grab an omelet cto.
2) Buffet with waffle iron. – I tend to skip these but might grab a waffle if I’m the first one in, and then go get some decent coffee. The place needs to be spotless though.
3) Microwave and toaster plus cold cereal. – I skip it and go find some good coffee.
Very seldom do I travel without bringing my own coffee but my wife travels with me so she handles the details like that.
it’s worth it if it’s worth eating.. my favorite hotel serves an excellent full scale breakfast with the chef popping in and out of the dining room, making sure everything is to your liking, and if not, he’ll whip up something for you personally!
Depends if I’m buying or I’m on an expense Acct
How important is the "Free" "Breakfast" at a hotel to you?
