(Newser) – What's $1,000 a night, when you can keep out the riff-raff, eat high on the hog, and get tickets to American Idol? That's the thinking these days at smaller chi chi hotels, where ultra-luxurious grand-a-night rooms are becoming more common, the Wall Street Journal reports. So just how do they pamper the 1% while 99-ers are lumping it at the Holiday Inn?

  • Big room, gorgeous view, and fawning 24-hour staff are givens—as are spas and top restaurants with short waiting lists.

  • A Montage resort in Utah greeted one family with hand-painted signs in their rooms, and procured them the aforementioned Idol tickets. "They can make anything you want to happen happen," says the mom.
  • Montage's Deer Valley resort also puts on your ski boots for you and even buckles them. When you return from the slope, staff awaits your little booties on bended knee.
  • Small, ultra-luxury hotels maintain a better overall appearance, whereas some top-rated larger hotels can grow tired-looking.
