The life of a high roller can be compared to that of a Hollywood star. While they may not have paparazzi or sign autographs, they will have plenty of attention from the moment they arrive at valet to the end of the trip, and no request is too big. In addition to fancy dinners, rounds of golf, all-expense paid trips to major sporting events, backstage concert passes and more, among the most popular perks offered to high rollers are luxurious suites featuring private amenities to make their stay a memorable experience.
We have highlighted a few of our favorite properties that really stand out when it comes to luxurious accommodations. Some feature private dining rooms, saunas and patios. Some feature pool tables, exercise rooms and multiple floors. But they all offer top quality service and guest satisfaction.
