    The Hyatt Place Orlando Convention Center is testing a to-go breakfast option. I'm nor sure if this is a system wide option they are considering or if it may just be a pilot test for this specific property. Three choices are available and appear to be the standard fare they offer regularly. You simply chose which you would like and a time you would like to pick it up. Interesting idea and more customizable than the similar offering that Hampton Inns have been offering for many years.

    This would be good for airport hotels and other places where some guests typically need to leave before breakfast opens.

    The only issue with this pilot program is their only offering the pick up during normal breakfast service hours (6:30 - 10:00am).

    I'm sure that everyone would enjoy earlier availability, but it seems like that would require more staff and additional costs.

    Then they shouldn't offer it, but hey, I forgot, hotels are there to serve guests, don't they? :confused:

    Would be nice indeed, but again, way too many airport hotels aren't really serving up these options to their guests right now.

    Last year I got a lunch-to-go once from a Hyatt Place. :)
    It wasn't part of a regular program though, just a favor in compensation for a certain inconvenience.

    I've been in Hampton Inns that have an early breakfast to go option. Also, Hyatt Place sells some good looking pastries latere in the day. It shouldn't require much to allow someone to pick a convenient pastry from the case early in the morning in lieu of their regular breakfast. This could be combined with self serve coffee (put the urns and paper cups out early) and maybe a container of juice. It should be easy.

    There should be profit in an airport hotel offering a very simple cold breakfast at almost any hour versus having the hotel guests purchase the same at inflated airport prices in the terminal.

    I confirmed with the MOD that this is beta test being conducted at this property (and perhaps others). She mentioned that the Hyatt Place properties are looking for a way to extend an additional benefit to their Plats & Diamonds. She was not sure how they would handle the drink option with the to-go breakfast. I suggested a bottle of water like Hampton Inns do. I also suggested the early am pick option which she thought was a good idea. She said I would receive an e-mail follow-up survey to complete.

    Have you received the e-mail / follow up survey? If so, what where the questions, would be interesting to know. Cheers.

    Meh. The breakfast sandwiches at Hyatt Places I've been to aren't worth the money (even being free). I'd rather pay $3 for an Egg McMuffin.

    Oddly, I haven't received an e-mail survey about the breakfast (or my stay).

    That's odd indeed, especially when she said you will receive one.
