I've had this theory for a while

Are hotels the last remnants of "british capitalism"? Stepping into one is like stepping into 1800s britain, with people calling you sir and serving you, rather than just helping you buy whatever product they are selling

AND, they all, exclusively and ALWAYS, serve english breakfast
Why is this and why have hotels been stuck in this british way? why dont they innovate and improve? do people like to be treated like royalty in hotels? i just feel bad

    it's all just a rise to get you distracted from the drugs they are planting in your luggage. Next they'll call the police and then you're screwed.

    In my country 'English breakfast' is just called breakfast.
    I am not from the UK.

    Where the frick do you go outside the British Isles that full english breakfast is the standard? It's almost always either "continental" breakfast or half assed American breakfast wherever I've been.

      >"continental"
      I always found that name weird, like British breakfast was the golden standard and "continental european" was the other side of that coin.

      It's almost as stupid as recruiters who cover "Europe and the UK" region. Lol.

        Continential breakfasts are just a way to sound more fancy even though its cheap. I wouldn't say hotels serve English breakfast.. I dunno maybe American?
        >Eggs
        >Bacon
        >Sausage
        >Breasts/pancakes/waffles
        >Some fruits

        It's called continental because it's the more popular type of breakfast on the continental landmass.

        Go to a French hotel and it's rare to have a cooked breakfast.

      Most hotels in Britain serve continental breakfast too, the big chains at least.

    No, free trade is. Free trade which still runs the world. That's what started the empire, what started it all, trade and money. A small island near Europe that didn't access to spice, much petrol, enough food, EMPIRE was necessity. At it's peak the British Empire was bigger than the EU and subjugating your fellowman to your rule is something we can be proud of.

    "English breakfast", so does that include a hot bar with just hash browns, sausage patties and fake scrambled egg mix?

      It's different everywhere.
      The saddest English breakfast I've seen so far was in Thailand. But even then it had a real egg. That was the best part of it. The toast, sausages, beans etc looked quite sad. I haven't seen one with fake eggs yet, then again I try to avoid eating English breakfast whenever I can. I for one welcome the Chinese expansion. Just give me rice porridge for breakfast. Okay honestly a crossover would be my fave. Rice porridge with some good sausage and a fried egg.

        Alot of ones in Taiwan (most of Sinosphere) offer buffet style, mix of Chinese and Western "Continental" breakfast, Congee with whatever toppings, more fake scrambled eggs, hash browns, and Canadian bacon.

          Yeah, I love those places. Malaysia, too, with their English, American, Indonesian, Indian, Chinese style breakfasts all in one buffet... Heaven. Otherwise I didn't like Taiwan or Malaysia all that much, but the food alone was worth it.

    Ofcourse dude, who don't like getting helped or pampered? It's a hospitality industry after all, if not its rather backward than innovating.. More so in the luxury range where its not all about top amenities/hardwares.

    Regarding continental breakfast, I guess some people rather sticked with the same old food rather than trying unknown local dish in the menu. I've been following some resort reviews for some insight. I've noticed some reviewers from various source in food section often sticked to continental offering rather than sampling local dish (or mixed them atleast). Maybe thats why...

    Why is this a bad thing? Why should every hotel be the exact same soulless box copy and pasted all over the world?
    I stayed at the Flemings Mayfair in London and I enjoyed it, including the full ingerlish breakfast.

    This is your mind on zoomerism. Whole generation that should be flushed down the toilet and redone, but the politicians won't let you kill off such a perfect farmable voter base.

    To everyone saying OP is moronic for saying "British capitalism", I think it's more of an attempt for him to describe the stereotypically socioeconomic idea of middle-class Victorian Brits who talk, dress and act posh and formal as opposed to most representations of modern capitalism where most formality is relegated to business dealings and high spending for shows of wealth is often seen as more trashy than enlightened.
