I've heard from readers in the past saying they don't always eat breakfast in the hotel because the hotel breakfasts are usually not very good in this select-service market. Some say they would rather explore the area they are visiting by dining in local restaurants. However, to many travelers, hotel breakfasts are convenient and for many, it is a morning necessity. The Hyatt brand wants its guests to enjoy its complimentary breakfast and are taking it up a notch by offering a new innovative breakfast experience that puts the power of breakfast in guests’ hands with customizable Build Your Own Breakfast Bowls and Greek Yogurt Parfaits.
I've stayed in both Hyatt Place and Hyatt House and on those stays, I thought the brand did breakfast service well. When we were redoing our hardwood floors in our Raleigh home before putting it on the market to sell, I spent three nights at the Hyatt Place near the PNC Arena. The kids and I looked forward to breakfast each morning. It saved us money plus I didn't have to cook breakfast.
Expanding on the “You’ve Come Too Far to Settle Now” platform, the Hyatt Place, and Hyatt House brands are inspiring guests to elevate their on-the-go routine with convenient dining choices that flex to meet their needs. The new Hyatt Place “Build Your Own” complimentary breakfast reminds guests not to settle when it comes toy the most important meal of their day. With the customizable breakfast bowls and Oikos® nonfat Greek yogurt parfaits, guests are sure to find the right balance to fit their morning routine – from premium ingredients, such as cage-free eggs and all-natural bacon and sausage, to more indulgent ones, including a warm caramelized banana yogurt topping.
Now available at Hyatt Place hotels across the United States and Canada, uniquely themed breakfast bowls and Greek yogurt parfaits are offered throughout the week to add variety for guests.

Alongside the new breakfast experience at Hyatt Place hotels, Hyatt House hotels also recently introduced the new “Omelet of the Day,” enhancing the current made-to-order Omelet Bar by giving guests daily breakfast inspiration while on the road.
Additionally, the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands introduced new for-purchase menus in Knowing that traditional meals are evolving and consumers are changing their eating habits, the two brands incorporated new bar bites and shareable items into their menus, including street tacos, charcuterie boards, crafted sliders and more.
