What do you have ?
I'm pretty chilled about hotel brekkies the morning before a race these days. My second marathon was Paris and I was a bit concerned that there wouldn't be an opportunity to have my usual porridge. As it was I didn't feel very hungry in the morning and breakfast was half a roll, a coffee, OJ and some water. Didn't stop me running a PB and a negative split.
Since then I've been happy to eat whatever is on offer that has a bit of carb in it. Any cereal's OK as long as it's not tooo high fibre, or a couple of slices of toast. I think the evening meal the day before - plus sensible taper, sleep, hydration, etc. - is just as important as being able to fit in your usual race morning breakfast routine.
Agree its personal thing but I swear by 2 poached egss on toast!!! No cooker......bugger that i bring my single gas stove for camping!!! with a little thing that does toast on a hob!!

A smoothie sounds lovely but it would have to be in my bag for 24 hours. Not so lovely...
Before Abingdon last year I stayed at a Travelodge which had no breakfast facility at all. I smuggled my toaster in and had a bagel with honey. If you do this make sure you put a bag or something over the smoke detector though to avoid early morning evacuations.
I've not tried this, but can you mix powered milk with the instant porridge then add boining water?
