The Hilton in some places on the exec floor have a dessert hour and hors d'oeuvres. They serve all types of things from cheesecake to chocolate cake to crackers and sandwiches. But you have to pay for the alcohol you consume at some locations.

Renaissance Wangfujing in Beijing: all you can drink beer, wine, champagne, liquor, fully-stocked hot breakfast, then hors d'oeuvres that could be substantial enough for a meal in the evening. No extra charge for anything. Highly recommended.
