Every weekday from 6 to 9am, the Element serves breakfast in its pretty lobby area which doubles as dining and a living room. The breakfast gets extended an hour and a half on the weekends and includes more hot dishes. But if you stay during the week, you will always find egg muffin breakfast sandwiches (today was actually a bagel sandwich), cereals, yogurt, various breads and pastries and yes, the smoothie shots.
Additionally, the Element sets up a coffee bar that guests can use throughout the day.
We're not huge free hotel breakfast fanatics mainly because we don't care much for stale bagels and corn flakes but Element's breakfast bar had us going down three days in a row. Quite possibly a record for us. Let's hope more hotels take note.
