Buffet Hotel is the twenty sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, released on December 8, 2009. On October 27, 2009, it was officially posted on the Margaritaville homepage as well on the Mailboat Records homepage.[2] It is the follow-up to Take the Weather with You.

While making the album, Buffett employed techniques from earlier albums, such as recording later at night after surfing; this resulted in a more laid-back feel. The name of the album comes from a building in Bamako, Mali, which Buffett visited during the Festival au Désert.[3] The album includes "Surfing In a Hurricane".
