My wife and I stayed at this hotel on the 5th of september. I booked the City Lights Package as a surprise for my wife (just under $400 for one night.) Including a bottle of Champagne, parking and buffet breakfast. Upon our arrival we were told we had to collect our complimentary bottle of champagne from the lobby bar. The lobby bar sent us back to reception who told us that was a mistake and they will send it to our room. We were told that our complimentary drink was at the bar. We went to the bar but there were reservation notices on all the vacant tables due to a conference so we had nowhere to sit. We have never had such a disappointing breakfast at any hotel anywhere in the world, the food choice was limited and poorly prepared, the cut fruit had a fermented taste and was not fresh at all. Upon check out we were told the complimentary drink at the bar was for only one person and were charged for second drink. I could not believe it!!
The only good thing of this hotel is the close proximity to some great restaurants. The next day we moved to the Versace Palazzo on the Gold Coast, what a delight for just a little more, service, food and rooms were simply in another class to the Ridges.
