Hampton by Hilton revealed this week that it is expanding its breakfast options and redesigning its breakfast serving areas across its more than 2,250 hotels in the United States and Canada. New menu items include additional waffle flavors, Chobani Greek yogurt smoothies and several new hot and savory options.

A recent survey of 1,571 Americans—conducted by Kelton Global for Hilton—determined 80 percent of Americans want a breakfast that satisfies their sweet tooth. To satisfy this large subset of the population, Hampton is introducing new fresh-baked Danish pastries and four additional flavors of waffles. Joining the brand’s malted vanilla flavor, these options—blueberry, chocolate, banana bread and cinnamon roll—will be offered on a rotating schedule and in regular and mini sizes.

Hilton’s survey also found 85 percent of Americans like a hot and savory breakfast. For this group, Hampton is adding egg white frittatas, chicken-apple sausage links and prime rib hash to its current core menu of scrambled eggs and bacon.
