Hotels with free breakfast: Everything you need to know

Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.

Staying at a hotel that offers free breakfast is a terrific way to save money and time because you don’t need to run around looking for your morning meal or spend a fortune. Some hotels offer free breakfast to everyone, but you can often get a fancier, more substantial meal when you have hotel elite status.

And you might be surprised to find out you can earn status which gets you free breakfast just by holding the right travel credit card or hotel credit card. You don’t need to be a frequent traveler or spend tons of money to get in on this perk. Let’s take a look at a

ll the major hotels with free breakfast. We’ll show you the best chains to look for and how you can do even better by earning elite status with rewards credit cards.

Hotels with free breakfast

Most hotels charge extra for breakfast, but there are moderately priced chains that offer free breakfast for all guests, making a stay at their hotels an even better deal. Upscale hotel chains tend to require elite status for free breakfast, but we, of course, found which ones stand out in this category too.

Hilton

Hilton offers free breakfast across many of its value-based brands, while their more premium brands require elite status to earn free breakfast. These are the Hilton hotel brands that offer free breakfast for everyone:

Other Hilton brands will have breakfast available for an additional cost, but if you have Gold or Diamond Hilton status you’ll get free breakfast at all Hilton hotels. You’ll get Hilton Gold status with the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card or The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card just for having the card. With the Hilton Honors Aspire Card from American Express, you’ll get complimentary Hilton Diamond status by keeping the card.

Even if you only stay at Hilton hotels occasionally, the cost savings of getting free breakfast can easily offset the annual fee on these cards. Jasmin and her three kids stayed at the Conrad Tokyo, where they have an incredible breakfast buffet. Had they paid cash, it would have cost $140 for the four of them, but it was free with her Hilton status.

You’ll also earn Hilton Gold status when you have The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express. It’s one of many outstanding, money-saving perks you’ll get with these cards. Check out our review of the Amex Platinum and review of the Amex Business Platinum to find out more.

Hyatt

There is free breakfast for all guests at these Hyatt hotel brands:

One big caveat with the free breakfast at Hyatt Place is that they require you to be a World of Hyatt member and to book your room directly with Hyatt. You don’t need to have elite status with Hyatt – just being signed up as a member will be enough to satisfy the requirement.

Hyatt offers a ton of premium options that are well presented, which might make breakfast your favorite meal of the day. (Photo courtesy of Hyatt)

Hyatt offers free breakfast at all of its hotels for Hyatt Globalist elite status members, including:

Unfortunately, you can’t earn Hyatt Globalist status just by holding a credit card. The World of Hyatt Credit Card comes with mid-tier Discoverist Hyatt status only. But if you have a lot of Hyatt stays you might consider the card to put yourself over the threshold for earning Globalist status, because you’ll earn five qualifying elite night credits each year. You’ll even receive an additional two qualifying night credits for every $5,000 you spend on the card. And through June 30, 2020, when you open a new Hyatt card you’ll get 10 elite night credits instead of just five. Also, all spending on your World of Hyatt card will earn three elite night credits per $5,000 spent between April 15 and June 30, 2020. So right now Globalist status is a tiny bit closer than it has been in the past.

The good news is that Hyatt breakfasts tend to be very good quality, so earning free breakfast here can really be worth it.

IHG

A few IHG hotel brands offer free breakfast for all guests:

I actually think that Holiday Inn Express offers quite a lot of value and options for free breakfast, especially at its price point. The cinnamon rolls are delicious.

MMS team members are big fans of Staybridge Suites, with its free breakfast buffet and evening socials with complimentary food, wine and beer at some locations. Avid hotels provide at least a light complimentary breakfast, such as premium coffee, fresh fruit, health bars and yogurt. They also offer grab-and-go hot breakfast sandwiches and scrambled eggs on occasion.

Unfortunately, other IHG brands offer no means of getting free breakfast – even for elite status members. Hopefully, IHG will up their game with this in the future.

Marriott

It’s easy to find Marriott hotel brands just about anywhere you go. Marriott offers free breakfast at five of its brands for all hotel guests:

To enjoy free breakfast at one of Marriott’s other brands you will need to have high Marriott Bonvoy elite status. Marriott Platinum, Titanium and Ambassador status members can get free breakfast at most other Marriott hotels, although at some hotels you may receive points or a different amenity.

Free breakfast for Marriott Platinum Elites include these brands:

Keep in mind that this isn’t every Marriott brand. There are a few hotel brands that do not offer breakfast for even Platinum elites. These include:

Best Western

As a rule of thumb, Best Western hotels are proud to offer free breakfast to all guests (at the vast majority of locations, but not all of them). They offer this at Best Western, Best Western Plus or Best Western Premier hotel. You usually find:

  • An assortment of fresh breakfast breads, muffins and pastries
  • A selection of popular cereals and oatmeal
  • A variety of hot breakfast options including French toast, waffles or pancakes
  • Many hotels serve hot eggs as well as a selection of breakfast meats

There are also some options for travelers on the run, like fruit and granola bars. This makes Best Western a good choice for budget-minded folks, especially families.

Choice Hotels

Choice hotels are great value options, and really good for road trips – you can find them even in smaller towns and spots off the beaten path. They offer free breakfast at many of their hotel brands.

You can enjoy free breakfast at these hotel brands:

Some other Choice hotel brands like Rodeway Inn or Clarion will often have breakfast at specific locations, but don’t offer it as a brand-wide perk. Check the location’s page before booking to see if it is offered for that location.

Radisson

Earning breakfast at Radisson hotels is a bit more sporadic. There are definitely many Radisson hotels that will offer free breakfast, but this tends to be left up to local management and is not something that is ironed out chain-wide.

Many of the upgraded rooms (such as “Business Class” at Radisson Blu) do include breakfast as part of the room rate, but having elite status and earning a room upgrade doesn’t guarantee that breakfast will be included with the upgrade. As a rule of thumb, you will want to check each hotel location’s individual site or call ahead to see if free breakfast is included with the stay because it varies based on location.

One exception is Country Inn & Suites, which offers free hot breakfast to all guests.

Wyndham

Most Wyndham brands offer free breakfast for all guests. So they’re another budget-friendly option if you’re looking to save cash.

These Wyndham hotel brands offer free breakfast:

Unfortunately, none of the other Wyndham brands (other than those listed above) offer any way to enjoy free breakfast, even with elite status from Wyndham Rewards. No tier of elite status offers this perk.

Other ways to get free hotel breakfast

If you don’t have elite status you can still get a free breakfast if they the right rewards credit card.

American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts

One of the perks of certain top Amex cards is access to the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts program. For example, if you used your Amex Platinum card to book a hotel through this program, you earn a bunch of extra bonuses and perks during your hotel stay. One of the many perks you get is free daily breakfast for two.

We really like using American Express Fine Hotel & Resorts portal because their prices are typically similar to booking through the hotel directly. And you’ll get other perks like a unique property amenity and guaranteed late check-out. For more details on the program, read our Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts review.

Chase Luxury Hotel Collection

If you have certain Chase credit cards, like the Ink Business Preferred Credit Card or Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, you can access the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection. When you use your card to book, you’ll get perks like daily breakfast for two, room upgrades if available, early check-in and late check-out (when available) and unique property amenities like hotel credits.

The information for the Ink Business Preferred Credit Card has been collected independently by Million Mile Secrets. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Jason and his wife enjoyed an excellent stay at the Park Hyatt Chicago booking through the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection. Along with free breakfast (worth ~$70), they got a room upgrade and $100 in credits that they used for dinner.

That said, if you have any Visa Signature card, you can book through Visa’s version of the program, the Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection. This entitles you to free daily breakfast for two at any hotel available on the site.

In addition, you will earn a bonus $25 credit to use towards other food or drink during your stay. In my experience, the Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection doesn’t have as many hotels in their network as the Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts program, but there are a lot more Visa credit cards supported under the program. In fact, tons of the best credit cards for travel are Visa Signature.

Bottom line

Hotels with free breakfast help you save money and start your day off right. Some hotels like Best Western offer free breakfast to everyone (most of the time), while others only offer free breakfast to elite status holders or at certain brands. For example, with Gold Hilton status (which comes complimentary with cards like the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass Card), you’ll get free breakfast at all Hilton hotels.

Getting a free breakfast, especially if you’re traveling with others, can save a ton of cash. But if you don’t want to worry about elite status, you can still get elite-like perks by booking your hotel stays through the Chase Luxury Hotel and Resort Collection, Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts, or Visa Signature Luxury Hotel Collection.

Do you choose hotels based on whether or not you’ll get free breakfast? What’s your favorite brand?

The Holiday Inn Express cinnamon rolls are truly wonderful. Breakfast aside, I always have a good stay with them for a more or less reasonable price.

There is an error in this article stating that ALL Best Western properties offer free breakfast when in fact many do not. As a Best Western Diamond member even I have to be careful when choosing a hotel if I want my breakfast included. If you want to verify check the Best Westerns around the Toronto or San Diego area many of the Best Western Pluses for example do not offer breakfast for everyone or as part of a perk for Diamond members.

As some one who used to work for Marriott and had the “pleasure” of providing “free” breakfast, I have to ask, Do most people really think this is free? It’s built into the rate of the room. In all honestly you get a cheaper rate if you don’t have breakfast included. Example, Courtyard would charge $179 a night and Residence Inn would charge $229. Same size room. Yes you get a kitchen in RI but SQ is the same. In regards to the breakfast, it’s all frozen prepacked heat and serve food. This is true for most hotels that offer breakfast included in the rate. No thank you. For smaller hotels they would only have a microwave and everything was cooked that way. Eggs, Breakfast meat, oatmeal, etc.

I recently stayed at the Amway Grand which is a Curio Collection Hilton property using my annual free night from my Ascend/Surpass card. All four adults in the room got a wonderful free breakfast. The room would have been around $300 and the breakfast for four another $70 or $80. I have gotten a lot of value from this card and its one I keep.

Do you all have any idea what you are eating for your meals? The MAJORITY of these “free breakfasts” are of SYSCO or GFS quality. Google it or just watch the semi out back unload this junk. Full of empty carbs, processed meats and more chemicals than household cleaners in some of these “foods”. You roll out of there in a insulin induced “food coma” quickly realizing you are hungry again when the levels in your blood have stabilized. Wake up people. Skip the free breakfast and demand a cheaper rate for your room.

I’m Hilton Diamond since 2005 and I had visited Hawaii 4 times since, each time stayed in Hilton portfolio resorts, never got free breakfast on any Hawaii island. Generally speaking: You can get much more value and status recognition outside of the United States.

Hands down the best breakfast is within the Park Hyatt collection; namely the Park Hyatt Milan. With my Globalist status, I was able to select my breakfast order the night prior and set a time to have it delivered directly to my room. Yes, to my room, avoiding a walk downstairs and eating in the lobby with all the other guests (glaring case of first world problems here). There was no cap to the amount I could order as well. Typically even with Fine Hotels and Resorts on the AMEX side of the fence, complimentary breakfasts are capped to $75 USD for the free breakfast credit as I’ve experienced multiple stays at different Ritz Carltons around the world. This was not the case with my Park Hyatt Milan stay. Breakfast that morning came out to nearly €350 and was axed from my hotel bill at checkout. When traveling abroad, you may have to choose between a breakfast buffet where you can eat unlimited of low quality food or you can order on menu for a limited quantity of high quality food. At Park Hyatt, you’re able to get both unlimited and high quality at the same time, for free. How can you beat that?

We’ve had quite a few decent breakfasts at different hotels. Our last trip was free breakfast at a Hyatt and a Holiday Inn. The last was at a Best Western in Gig Harbor which was our favorite-not all gluten-and they kept everything well stocked and fresh! 🙂

Now, regarding the best tasting breakfast, that was also at a Hilton – Tanger City in Morocco. The rooftop location near the pool was beautifully decorated in comfortable Moroccan decor and the food was even better than the panoramic view of the city. Especially surprising to see not one or two examples of typical Moroccan specialties in each station, but least 2 or 3.

I feel that Hilton is the best option. If you’re not covered by the brand itself offering complimentary breakfast to all guests, then you can easily obtain gold elite status through one of their Amex cobranded cards or by way of your Amex platinum card. I believe this gives a competitive edge to them over Marriott and Hyatt who make breakfast much trickier to obtain.

As a vegan, finding breakfast options that include non dairy milk, and non animal sources of protein are pretty limited, especially at a modest price point.

While the Holiday Inn Express free breakfast in the US is quite processed and not great in terms of environment (all disposable styrofoam plates, bowls and cups) or healthy family options, OUTSIDE of the US Holiday Inn Express breakfasts are fantastic! This is fabulous for families traveling together since they are ubiquitous and relatively inexpensive on cash or points.

In the US, Hyatt House or Place has best free breakfast hands down, IMO. Real food with good service and plenty of unique options at each location.

“Do you choose hotels based on whether or not you’ll get free breakfast? What’s your favorite brand?”

Call me crazy, but I choose my hotels based upon where I need to be. For me, typically breakfast only comes into it when my wife and I are on vacation, not when traveling for work. My Hilton Aspire card gives me Diamond status, so no issues there, and I used to (almost) always get breakfast at SPG properties in Europe as a Gold elite, though not in the States. In 2019, I’ll be a Marriott Platinum Elite, so we’ll see what happens there…
