I stayed at the Wynn a few years ago when I saw Garth Brooks. The concert was amazing as it was in a very small venue. Our room was spacious with a nice view of the golf course in the back. The casino itself is nicely decorated with many luxury retailers within. The Wynn is also home to XS Nightclub which is a lot of fun. It's also nice that the casino is connected to Encore which makes it seem like the casino is a lot larger than it really is.
What can I say about this place? It's absolutely INCREDIBLE. But unfortunately, it's for high rollers, which I am not.
Everything from the landscaping, to the hotel, to the games, to the restaurant is upscale. My goal is to see Garth Brooks there in January, but even those ticket prices are out of this world for decent seats.
This is in no way a bad review of this place, it's just a tad out of my league and probably many of us ACG people.
I miss old Vegas down that way (Desert Inn, Frontier, Westward Ho, Sahara, Stardust.) but Wynn is sort of "unofficially" where the strip now ends. Check this place out if you're a low roller, and gamble at it if you're a high roller :)
Watched a guy lose $250,000 playing craps in 20 minutes right on the floor.(okay he had his own table). he turns to his buddy and says, "Let's go have dinner.... " That's the Wynn. I call it Prosperity Training. The Video Poker is tight, the table minimums can be insane during hot times but WHO CARES! This place is so insanely gorgeous. I mean $17.50 for a meatball appetizer ? It's that last fifty cents that really gets to me. Saturday night the ladies heading to XS is "Sugar Daddy Heaven." The buffet has lost some of its luster. Been downgrade at breakfast from three kinds of sausage to one and amazing exotic fruits to well, fruit. I love when I can stay in the Tower section. This is an experience you don't want to miss. The customer service here is really beyond compare & yes, I brought my wife here and well, now that's that. Its Wynn or nothing. Okay I will go elsewhere to get some decent Video Poker at less than $5 a line but hey..it's the WYNN. Bobby V
What can you say about the Wynn other than it is probably the most elegant casino on the strip?(with the Bellagio and Palazzo finishing a close 2nd & 3rd) It has everything: gourmet buffet, top-notch suites, a tight nightclub (Blush -- the Obama inauguration party was held here), a comfortable gambling environment with great cocktail service, and the prerequisite Vegas show.
Though the casino is geared towards high-rollers, the employees are not aloof; rather they are very friendly. Sign up for a player's club card and you get free slot play (which I was able to double), and earn points to obtain a free buffet token -- which is a great deal considering the quality of the food.
I recommend staying at the Wynn for those discerning travellers who value quality. The new Encore is attached to it, as is the Palazzo (which is connected to the Venetian). You could spend your entire vacation in these four casinos and never run out of things to do... especially if you love window shopping (I'm a fan of the Rolex store).
With the troubled economy wreaking havoc on Vegas casino revenue, you should be able to get a great deal at the Wynn, along with most other casinos. So now is the time to stay at the opulent casino. I'd rather shell out the bucks here than at Encore.
Wynn is an elite casino, and every visitor to Vegas should at least check it out once.
