Hotels With Free Dinner (or Evening Snacks) and Drinks

While 39 hotel brands offer a free hot or continental breakfast to all guests, only nine hotel brands offer free dinner or complimentary food to all guests in the evening. Even fewer offer more substantive appetizers every day of the week.

But if you’re looking to save money on dining expenses when traveling, or are only looking for a light evening snack, the following ten hotel brands should hit the spot with their free dinner (or snacks) and beverages.

It should be noted that it will be difficult to assemble a hearty or healthy dinner (aside from salad) from any of the hotel brands mentioned below. But if you’re only look for appetizers or a light meal, these nine hotel brands should do the trick (at least on weekdays).

For those hotel brands that offer complimentary alcoholic beverages, guests must be at least 21 years of age for locations in the United States of America and availability is subject to local and state laws.

Most locations offer lower-end wine and beer; a few locations may also offer lower-end spirits.
