New Breakfasts at Aloft Hotels

News Marriott International has announced the launch of brand new breakfasts at Aloft Hotels. Named Re:fuel, the brand new program is aimed to provide guests with delicious and nutritious breakfasts on demand. These breakfasts come in a shape of a pot and are available in 13 varieties. In their attempts to create both trendy and healthy choices, Aloft offers such ingredients as freshly poached eggs, quinoa, avocado, cheddar grits, pancakes with lemon and ricotta, sweet potato, and more.

The new breakfast pots are already available in the US and soon will be added to Aloft hotels in Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. The hotelier notes that these pots may be different in different regions and will be adapted to local cuisines and tastes.

Ordinary buffet type breakfasts do not inspire travelers anymore. Customization is another popular trend. Pots will different food inside are available on the grab-and-go basis in kiosks or guests can leisurely eat them in the restaurant hall. Each pot has a different design depending on the filling and has a label that indicates its production time.
