2011 New Year's Eve Buffets at City Hotels

This post goes totally against the theme (and ideals) of this site as it promotes no bargain at all, but will rather burn several (unworthy) holes in your pockets. New Year's Eve and Day is that time of year when hotels up the prices of their buffets to serve the exodus of revellers wanting to eat out while the numerals of the year increase by a digit. Needless to say, it is not financially the best of times to savour hotel food. But then, who wants to sit at home - watching some boring old TV and eating the regular delivered-pizza - while counting down to the new year? We all need excitement in our lives, plus you have to find ways to spend that bountiful bonus too. So here's a sample of some of the city's top hotels and the prices of their new year buffets:
