To ensure a happy hotel guest, offer excellent service, provide a comfortable bed and never, ever underestimate the power of a free bagel: After a good night's sleep, many travelers these days are expecting - and receiving - a good breakfast.

You know the kind, included in the price of your stay and often served in a room just off the lobby of a Best Western or a Hampton Inn - the quiet space that suddenly becomes the center of attention for several hours in the morning.

There's just something very comforting about waking up in a strange city and knowing your first meal is ready and waiting for you as you start your day - no searching around required.

    Got to have a good breakfast after a night of Partying. Especially a free one.

    I knew I was cruising into middle age when I started worrying more about an in-room ironing board and free breakfast and less about how late the nightclub stayed open. What a drag it is getting old...

      Ha! When I was in Michigan this summer, I asked the company to change my hotel. The one they first put me up in had shitty breakfast and no ironing board. That is a deal breaker for me. But the bar next door stayed open til 2. I'm in between ages. X)

    It's better when you can get room service (of excellent Hotel restaurant food) on the Companies dollar. Had some fine meals when I worked in Juneau, AK for a few weeks and stayed at the Baranoff Hotel (part of Princess Tours). All the steak and fresh Alaskan seafood I could take. For FREE!!
