EXPRESS Start™ Breakfast
The real breakfast of champions? The kind that’s complimentary and waiting for you every morning. We’ve got a whole buffet full of offerings ready to help kick start your day.
We’re big on the little things. Like Wi-Fi, coffee and tea, and all the in-room conveniences that make you feel right at home, even when you’re away.
Power up while you power down. Bedside outlets, a plush duvet, your pick of pillows, and a quiet place to settle in means you’ll get some solid shut-eye.
