When booking a hotel, is breakfast one of the special features you look for? Do you get frustrated when you feel like a hotel skimps out on those little details that make a huge difference? While we know that safety and cleanliness are one of the most important focus areas to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic and breakfast and evening socials were the first thing to go when things got real, Pathfinder Development has been committed to serving our guests a stellar breakfast as soon and as safely as possible.
When the pandemic hit, hot breakfast, breakfast buffets, and gourmet selections were cut from all the hotel operations across the world. Some hotels went as far as stopping simple coffee service and let’s face it, who can start their day without their morning cup of Joe? Since restrictions have been lifting and some hotels are trying to bring things back a little at a time, Pathfinder Development felt strong about getting our food menu items back to where they need to be so that our guests feel satisfied when leaving any of our kitchens. Unfortunately, some hotels have noticed that cutting breakfast, evening social, and even coffee have cut their costs significantly, and who can blame them? However, we know building an incredible customer experience is still crucial as travel picks back up. Platinum Service is the name of our game and quality matters. According to a Lavidge.com study in 2019, “More than three-fourths (77%) of study respondents rated verbiage about a complimentary morning meal as their favorite phrase when considering booking a room in a hotel or resort.”

So…if a high-quality complimentary breakfast is one of your top must-haves when booking a hotel and you’re looking to travel to Austin, Houston, or Port Arthur, look no further. According to 4hoteliers.com in 2019, Hotels.com did a survey and they found that after they “surveyed 1,000 global jet-setters to find out which of those luxurious amenities matter the most to hotel guests, the results were quite surprising. As it turns out, good food, specifically complimentary breakfast, is the No. 1 perk travelers expect from a hotel.” Many hotels have not brought back their breakfast options. Many are still serving pre-made paper bags with expired products that sometimes end up going to waste. Some may not bring breakfast at all, and because of that and because of the importance that this small, but mighty amenity means to travelers, we promise to not only do it well but do it better. We can’t wait to serve you!
