“What do you call a hotel that offers a breakfast of Eggs Benedict?"/"A Hollandaise Inn.”

"Hollandaise Inn” is a jocular name for a hotel, seemingly a combination of the names of Holiday Inn and Days Inn. The name “Hollandaise Inn” was print in newspapers in 1977, 1979 and 1999.

“The best hotel for an asparagus to stay at is the Hollandaise Inn” was posted on Twitter on June 27, 2010. “What do you call a hotel that offers a breakfast of Eggs Benedict? A Hollandaise Inn” was posted on Twitter on December 15, 2014.

A riddle was posted on Twitter on June 11, 2015:

Q: Where do eggs stay on vacation?
A: Hollandaise Inn.



Wikipedia: Hollandaise sauce
Hollandaise sauce (/hɒlənˈdeɪz/ or /ˈhɒləndeɪz/; French: [ʔɔ.lɑ̃.dɛz]), formerly also called Dutch sauce, is an emulsion of egg yolk, melted butter, water and lemon juice (or a white wine or vinegar reduction). It is usually seasoned with salt, and white pepper or cayenne pepper.

Hollandaise is one of the five mother sauces in French cuisine. It is well known as a key ingredient of eggs Benedict, and is often served on vegetables such as steamed asparagus.

16 March 1977, Tampa (FL) Times, “There’s a new kind of hotel that offers bloom and board” by Charlie Robins, Baylife, pg. 1-B, col. 3:
I suppose there might be a market for nationally franchised chains of hotels or motels, where ailing plants could take the cure at a Wiltin’ Hilton, or a fun-loving pet asparagus could hit the sauce at a Hollandise Inn.

21 October 1979, St. Petersburg (FL) Times, “Laughing matter: Consider the possibilities of mergers in the food business” by The St. Petersburg Times Comedy Committee, CityPlus, pg. 2, col. 2:
How about a hotel chain for gourmets—Hollandaise Inn?

2 September 1999, Atlanta (GA) Journal-Constitution, “From Our Readers” by Betty Parham, pg. H2, col. 3:
When you go out, what do you eat? “Stone crabs and anything with hollandaise sauce. My idea of a great restaurant would be one called the ‘Hollandaise Inn.’ “
