Tower Suite

Wynn’s air-conditioned guest rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, with a choice of one king or two queen beds and the option of a mountain or strip view.  Rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean, styled in earth tones and peach hues with plush and modern furnishings.  Additional features include flat-screen TVs, automated blinds, bedside USB ports, a stocked mini-bar, robes, an electronic safe, and an iron and ironing board. Wi-fi and local calls are included.

Bathrooms are equally as roomy and impressive, decked out in marble with brass hardware, double sinks, a small flat-screen TV, a glass shower, and a soaking tub.  In Tower Suites, high-end toiletries extend further than shampoo and hand cream to include mouthwash, hair spray, and shaving cream. The only drawback to rooms facing the poolscape is that noise from pool parties is audible.  However, this can be remedied by requesting a room on the higher floors.

For additional luxury and perks, upgrade to a Tower Suite where guests have more space, larger sitting areas with full-size couches, and free breakfast.  Guests are also granted a private check-in area and access to a private pool.

SW Steakhouse

With 21 restaurants and eateries on the property, guests will find an even mix of casual and fine dining. This includes indoor and outdoor options, as well as cuisine choices of Italian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, and Japanese.  Steak and seafood and American fare are also available, along with an international buffet.

Visitors will also find a total of seven bars and lounges, including Bar Parasol – a specialty bar featuring champagne and caviar, and Eastside Lounge which overlooks the pool at Encore and specializes in handcrafted cocktails.

On-site hotel amenities include multiple pools, two award-winning spas, a fitness center, and wedding facilities, plus two theaters and two nightclubs.  There is also a shopping complex, an 18-hole golf course, and approximately 560,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.  The elegant casino floor is very large at 116,187 square feet, with sophisticated poker rooms that hold daily tournaments.

The Pool at Wynn

Guests might be surprised by the way the floors are numbered.  This is because the hotel was designed with Chinese culture in mind, wherein four is considered an unlucky number.  Therefore, there is no fourth floor or floors 40 through 49 at the Wynn or Encore.

Guests might also be surprised by the daily resort fee of $45 (US).

Overall, Wynn scores high with the majority of guests, many of which are repeat visitors and consider it the Gold Standard in Las Vegas. However, the hotel is not perfect and has been known to disappoint the occasional guest by failing to provide the room that was reserved.
