A Complimentary Hotel Breakfast Worth Cheering For

How many complimentary hotel breakfasts have you ever cheered about?  Until a recent stay, my number was less than one.  Typically, I’m greeted by over ripe bananas, scrawny apples, Fruit Loops and semi-wheat bread.  I agree, what do you expect for a free breakfast.  So imagine my surprise when I sauntered downstairs during my recent stay at a Fairfield Inn by Marriott and found real walnuts and a Del Monte SuperFruit cup with no added sugar on the breakfast bar.  Add these items to their bowl of oatmeal with raisins, a perfectly ripe banana, a nice size apple and real whole wheat bread with peanut butter and I was tickled pink.  In my book, it’s a complimentary hotel breakfast worth cheering for. Thank you Fairfield Inn by Marriott! PS. If you are keeping track of the fiber grams, this breakfast had about 19. Here’s the break out:

  • Del Monte SuperFruit Cup – 3
  • Handful of walnuts – 2
  • 1 cup oatmeal – 4
  • banana – 3
  • apple - 3
  • 1 slice whole wheat bread – 3
  • Peanut butter  - 1
