NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – “We treat all of our best casino patrons as if they were George Clooney walking through the door,” says Kristin Westberg, Vice President of Marketing at Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino.

To be a high roller at Harrah’s New Orleans means nothing but the VIP treatment before, during and after your stay. “All of our best casino patrons receive service from a dedicated casino host. They help with their travel arrangements, booking their hotel reservations, restaurant, event reservations,” says Westberg.

It also means gifts, and trips and basically anything you want. “Cruises to the Bahamas, Bermuda, Alaska. Premium seating at A-list entertainment and top sporting events. I would say most commonly the special requests are for particular drinks, for premium alcohol.

Gambling got ya thirsty? Head upstairs to your suite! A private butler will fix your favorite cocktail. The suites have all the amenities you could want. “Extra-large bathtubs, fully loaded wet bars, they even have pianos for the music buff,” says Westberg. Even the coffee selection is world-class! “We do things like offer personal bedding or even embroidered, monogrammed linens and bath robes.”

Time here is earned on the casino floor. The most exclusive rewards tier in Seven Stars. “The criteria to become a Seven Stars is significant so we want to make those members feel as special as possible… hot air balloon rides, diving with great white sharks, African safaris!”

150,000 tier credits in a calendar year and you too can be one of Harrah’s happiest high rollers!
