“DECEMBER AT RIDGEWOOD”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

99% of Baguio hotels were already booked at this time of the year, and we were lucky to get the last 2 rooms of Ridgewood Residence and we are satisfied with our first time-stay here.

LOCATION: So near The Mansion (the official summer residence of the President of the Philippines), Wright Park (where you can go horseback riding) and a minute drive to Mines View. Its away from the busy part of the city and the surroundings are mixed residential and parks too. Tucked in the inner portion of a street so the noise from the main road and passing vehicles will not bother you at all. You can also go jogging in the vicinity/neighborhood and enjoy the breeze.

ROOMS: We got 2 De Luxe rooms with veranda on the 5th floor (don’t worry they have an elevator) at P3200 per room per night, plus an extra bed at P750.00 per night all with free buffet breakfast. Our room has 2 single beds with TV (not flat). No aircon (no need its 15 degrees cel.!!) The 1st room has a view facing the portion of The Mansion and hway and the other room is facing the residential areas and pine trees. The rooms are clean. Bedsheets are clean. Toilets are clean with complete toiletries and towels. Cleanliness checked!

FOOD: Breakfast Buffet is okay. Its limited but I enjoyed it. They have coffee, tea, fruits, juice , toasted bread, cereals ( nuts , milk and raisins are available ), egg, fried rice and 1 main dish for the day. If you don’t like the dish for the day, you can always order from the menu which is a bit pricey.

SERVICE: Great staff. All staff are commendable for good service , politeness, friendliness. During breakfast (peak season) they should add more waiters since the hotel has so many guests for faster service.

Overall this is a nice , clean hotel in a quiet location with real Baguio ambiance. The hotel lobby and dining area have woodlike interior with a fireplace. Cozy. I will surely go back or recommend this place to a friend.

Room Tip: If you booked a room with veranda/balcony request the one with a view of the Mansion.

This is our 4th time already at Ridgewood which shows how much we have come to depend on this hotel everytime we go up to Baguio.

The location, which is a few blocks away from Wright Park and the Mansion, is perfect if you are like us who prefer the quiet and cozy side of Baguio versus the traffic and bustle of the city proper.

We always prefer rooms of the 300 series for its proximity to the dining area and you don't have to go up the stairs and the elevator.

The breakfast spread is a little bit limited with only one meat dish, one egg dish and a vege dish. But I really love their coffee. And I would recommend that you choose the dining options outside the hotel since their buffet is a little bit limited and the price is a little bit steep for its selection.

But the room decor, cozy and homey design as well as the warm and personalized service of its staff would always make us come back to this corner of Baguio.

My family just came back from Baguio and we stayed in Ridgewood for 4 nights. Accommodation and food are very good. Location is convenient to all major attractions: Mansion, Wright Park, Mines View, Camp John Hay, Botanical. Got a good rest and sleep since it is a little bit away from the highway. We will definitely come back to Ridgewood.

I stayed here for a business dinner at Forrest House. It was easy to book and resreve.

The rooms were too small though. There's a discrepancy with their idea of a 'queen sized' bed and a 'single bed' (for some reason they think that they're the same). For the price that you paid, you can at least expect to have the usual sized rooms. The small servings of the plated breakfast also disappointed me after paying P3850 for a night.

One good point is that the location is good. It was in an area full of pine trees. The lobby decors are also worth mentioning. The wood designs are great. They just need to improve on their rooms.

If you are in Baguio only for the weather then this is the place for you. But make sure to reserve the rooms upstairs, not the basement. Mornings in Baguio is really sweet. Cool air and foggy. The rooms are not airconditioned but it gets cold at night, just open the windows. no worroes, the windows are screened, so no unwanted insects. But if you are in Baguio to shop then this might not be a good place for you. The hotel is a bit far from the center of activity. You need to call for a taxi. The hotel is near Mines view, though.
Breakfast in Ridgewood is very Filipino, which is nice. The service employees are ok, some are friendly some are so so.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms upstairs.

My daughter and I achieved what we've been wanting to have - that is, to unwind and have a relaxing experience at a place we're going to stay. Booking at the Ridgewood Residence was a perfect thing to do. The place is clean, the staff are very helpful and accommodating, the food and the room passed my expectations.It is the serenity of the place that really captivated me. After a tiring day visiting places , it was a comfort to rest in a place away from the noise of the city. We would definitely go back at Ridgewood. Kudos to the staff! esp. to the head waiter for being so helpful in suggesting how to maximize our stay without the hassles of bringing our stuffs so we can enjoy the places we wanted to visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A bundle of pleasant ironies, Ridgewood Hotel basks in a seeming anonymity when side by side the big boys and girls in the industry. Quaint yet exquisite, laidback and provincial yet bustling and modern. There’s something about the place and the service that lets your guard down – but not excessively, and lets you luxuriate – but not obtrusively. Opened in 2004, Ridgewood Hotel is built to exude a homey ambiance, accentuated with log interiors, and the crisp scent of pine trees. Baguio is rich in culture and definitely has that distinctive and ironic charm: a bustling business center back-dropped with the cool climate and relaxing natural scenery. Ridgewood Hotel shares in this uniqueness as different tourist spots are nearby. Go horseback riding alongside Baguio’s Pony Boys at Wright Park. Take panoramic selfies at Mines View Park or group shots at the Mansion House. Marvel at the picturesque Camp John Hay. And just be. Where weekend getaways happen, social functions are memorable, and business meetings successful, the unabashed anonymity may be or must be a desirable welcome treat. Ridgewood Hotel is owned and operated by 5R Holdings, Inc. ... more   less
