If you’ve ever stayed at a Hyatt Place hotel, you’re familiar with the complimentary continental breakfast that they offer. If you’re not familiar with Hyatt Place, their continental breakfast includes your standard items like cold cereal, fruit, toast, muffins, juice, coffee, etc. They do offer a small menu of hot items but those come at a cost.
I normally don’t mind continental breakfast but there is something about the Hyatt Place breakfast that doesn’t appeal to me. It’s probably the one breakfast that I will actually avoid. In my experience, Hyatt House hotels offer hot breakfast with better quality continental items.
Maybe Hyatt felt they needed to up the ante because they’ve been slowly upgrading the Hyatt Place breakfast with the introduction of its new “a.m. Kitchen Skillet” breakfast menu.
Our new a.m. Kitchen Skillet™ includes:
-Hot breakfast sandwiches, including low-carb options
-Hot sweet items, including waffles, pancake and cinnamon French toast
-Freshly baked pastries
-Thick sourdough and multigrain breads
-Steel cut oatmeal, yogurt, cereal, cottage cheese
The hot menu items are certainly welcome. While I haven’t tried any of them yet, the reviews on FlyerTalk have been mixed. I’ll keep my expectations low but I do appreciate being able to start the day with a warm meal.
The new a.m. Breakfast Skillet menu is not yet available at all Hyatt Place hotels but I’ve been told that it will be coming to more hotels. Hyatt has compiled a list of all Hyatt Place hotels in the United States and color-coded it to show which hotels have the new menu and which hotels do not yet have it.
For those who have tried the new breakfast items, what did you think? Does it add value to the Hyatt Place brand?
