Home > Review of the Wynn Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.
Let me start out by saying that we simply won't have a single word said about Steve Wynn, visionary of the Wynn hotel (and the Mirage, Treasure Island, Bellagio among others). There would have to be a thousand turds lining the plushly-laid carpet of our hotel room at the Wynn for us to even begin to think he is nothing short of a genius - and even then, we would probably think that he created it for our benefit and we simply didn't understand what he was trying to achieve.
To prove this point, Wynn Resorts (the holding company of his hotels) have more Five Star awards from Forbes Travel Guide than any other independent hotel company in the world.
How we explain the Wynn hotels to our non-Vegas friends is along the lines of:
"If the high end hotels of Las Vegas are 5/5, then the Wynn is 10/5."
Now, we say that for several reasons, but we happen to believe that Steve Wynn is a genius for the reason of the storytelling practices that his hotels and casinos employ. It is this reason that the service levels at the Wynn and Encore are just about the best we have witnessed in our travels all over the world.
Everything about the Wynn hotel is just the best, so if you can afford it, then there is simply no other choice of hotel - period. Even if you can't afford it (like ourselves), then we still highly recommend that you max out your credit cards, sell the house, car and kids just to stay there for a few days! For that reason, it'll never appear at the top of cheapo Las Vegas Hotel Deals websites, where it's usually a race to the bottom as hotels get more desperate for business.
The Wynn is like experiencing Rolex, Chanel, Versace, Prada, Bentley and Rolls Royce all mixed together - and then improved somehow.
It seems facile to even describe the Wynn in hotel terms such as number of rooms, how many poker tables, cafes and restaurants, as nothing would really do it justice. Much like the advertisement for a Rolex watch, there should be few words that describe the features. Just imagine the best experience one could have in a hotel, casino, restaurant, stores, golf course, pools and that will be the Wynn.
Yes, that is a SIX-star rating, out of five. The Wynn is the best hotel and casino in Vegas, period.
With a spot on The Strip, The Wynn Las Vegas is one of the more extravagant luxury hotels and casinos you'll come across in the 'Gambling Capital of the World'. Named after owner Steve Wynn, this 2,716-room high rise sets a class and tone of its own. The sheer monolithic copper structure with an emphasis on lush greenery, the Wynn stands out like no other (well, apart from Encore, which looks exactly the same.
Besides holding more Forbes Travel Guide 5 stars than any hotel on the Strip, the Wynn, with its adjacent sister property, Encore, is the once-in-a-lifetime lavish experience every traveler deserves. Located on the northern side of the Strip alongside Desert Inn road (about five miles from the Airport), the Wynn stands within walking distance from the Palazzo, the Venetian and the Las Vegas Convention Center, giving tourists ample options during their stay at the resort. And if you're staying at the Wynn, you can afford a can to Downtown, or the south end of the strip.
Wynn is a five star property rooted on Las Vegas Boulevard. Opening its doors in 2005, it is a mere eleven years since the beds were first slept in. Having 2700 bedrooms it's known for being one of Las Vegas' biggest hotels and we think that Wynn is a striking resort. A must visit.
Built on the site where casino hotel, Desert Inn once stood, Wynn offers high-end suites and villas with elegant décor, overlooking the Las Vegas Boulevard or the on-site golf course with beautiful views of the mountains on the opposite side through chic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Be it the aqua-aerial acrobatics of "La Reve-The Dream", the fascinating night shows at the "Lake of Dream" or the meticulously designed, massive, casino, if you stay at Wynn, there is pretty much a zilch possibility of you getting bored.
The hotel is popular for the eighteen fine and casual dining restaurants it houses, most of which hold 4 Forbes Travel and Guide stars. Chef Ming Yu brings European=influenced Chinese fusion to Wing Lei which holds a Michelin star for exquisite Cantonese and Szechwan delicacies.
There is Costa Di Mare for seafood lovers, the unparalleled SW Steakhouse overlooking the Lake of Dreams, the outstanding Andrea for Asian taste buds, and the oriental Japanese, Mizumi, serving authentic sushi and sashimi. Plentiful cafés and eateries such as Terrace Point Café, known for its breakfast and The Buffet which is regarded as the best in the city among many people that enjoy stuffing all they can down their necks in 45 minutes in exchange for a one off payment.
The hotel provides various recreational facilities such as the spa (and it's a great one), 24x7 fitness center, exceptional Claude Baruk salons, pools, Jacuzzis and a retail shopping space.
If budget is not a concern, the Wynn is the ideal hotel in Vegas bar none.
