Which Hotel Chains and Brands Offer Free Breakfast? Info for 130+ Hotel Brands

Why pay for breakfast when you’re on the road when you can eat for free? Check out our table for free breakfast information at 130+ hotel chains and brands, including (a) whether or not elite status is required, and (b) whether or not the complimentary breakfast is continental or full.



At last count, 27 hotel brands offer a complimentary hot full breakfast to all guests, and 12 hotel brands offer complimentary continental breakfast to all guests. In addition, upper-tier elite status members at Carlson, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, and Starwood (now part of Marriott) will net you at least a free continental breakfast at any of properties affiliate with those groups.

Free breakfast, continental or otherwise, tends to be a scarce amenity at most Accor and IHG brands.

Free Hotel Breakfasts: Notes, Comments, and Additional Information

  • A full breakfast is defined as a breakfast featuring at least one hot egg offering (e.g., scrambled eggs) and one hot meat offering (e.g., bacon or sausage). Typical offerings include bacon, sausage, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, omelettes, potatoes, hash browns, oatmeal, pancakes, biscuits, and gravy as well as bread, bagels, muffins, cereals, fruits, yogurt, and juices.
  • A continental breakfast is any kind of breakfast other than a full breakfast. Typical offerings include bread, bagels, muffins, cereals, fruits, yogurt, and juices.
  • Hot egg dishes can be made from reconstituted/liquefied eggs.
  • A sandwich with both hot (scrambled) eggs and meat meets the definition of a full breakfast for the purposes of this article. Hyatt Place skates by on this definition (most of their other hot breakfast dishes incur an additional charge).
  • Starwood is now part of Marriott, following Marriott’s buyout of Starwood in 2016. The elite status programs remain separate, but you can link your Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guests for reciprocal elite status.
  • Accor purchased FHRI in 2016, which consists of the Raffles, Fairmont, and Swissôtel hotel brands. FHRI currently maintains its own separate elite status program, President’s Club.
  • The table lists the minimum brand standard with regards to continental versus full breakfast offerings. While a brand may only require free continental breakfast for guests, some individual properties may go above and beyond and offer a hot full breakfast to all guests, too.
