English term or phrase:comp'd
"The room was clean, we could sleep with the windows open and the area was quiet. The only thing lacking was the comp'd breakfast I would ask for an upgrade unless a croissant and coffee is all you need."
Yes sorry, I meant that the abbreviation "comp." has been verbed and so on and so forth. The verb has not made it into my dictionary though (dated last year).
In any case it is always good to get freebies:)
Hiya... Not quite clear on your note, but here in the U.S. at least folks have made "to comp" into a verb meaning to waive the fee and you can say either "I was comped" or "the fee was comped" and even "will you comp me?"
Odd one, not a contraction I've come across before, but I guess it must mean 'complimentary', unless this in some way relates to a FR text, in which case breakfast might have been listed as 'compris', which then got anglicized...

Explanation: comped (usual spelling) means payment is waived.
Quite familiar with this... I'm inivited to speak at a lot of conferences and the the registration fee is usually "comped"....
