The flagship hotel and resort in the Steve Wynn empire opened in 2005, at the time the most expensive hotel in the world and the largest privately funded construction project in the United States. With over 2700 rooms on 45 floors it was also the tallest building in Las Vegas at that time. The hotel is ranked among the best in the city, accorded 5 star rating by most every rating company, across all categories.
Unlike most other strip hotels, the crowd-drawing attractions of the Wynn are not located out in front of the building. One must walk inside - and there are no scheduled shows or canals and only one gimmick - an artificial mountain with multiple waterfalls. Also unlike most other hotels, the entrance is to a real lobby and not a casino or shopping venue. The lobby is filled with flowers illuminated by natural light, the flower motif carrying through to the casino. The lobby tile floors are the most striking element - bright, colorful, whimsical - lots of cameras pointed down. The shopping mall is also relatively small and quite sedate, very haute, with a Maserati dealership as its prized vendor.
The Wynn is one of the best 5 star hotels in Las Vegas. By the time I was there my american friends wanted to show it to me and thought it was the most beautiful hotel in L.V. Well , I on't know if it's the prettiest but sure is nice!
It has wonderful shopping and beautiful restaurants. The floors at the entry are lovely, with colourful mosaics and beautiful flower arrangements. It was nice to walk through it and I think it's a nice place to visit on your stay in Las Vegas.
Located within the Wynn Resort is a free show called the Lake of Dreams, which shows every 30 minutes from 6-9 pm. The platform to see it best is by the Umbrella Bar patio. Sadly they had it closed off, so we watched behind glass doors. There is a hidden screen that comes alive with some very spectacular colors and music. There's a couple of restaurants you could watch the show too.
Worth a visit even if you don't stop for a very expensive ($12-17) and very well constructed drink, Parasol Up bar is one of the most striking in Las Vegas. The outdoor patio projects into a lake facing a waterfall, the site of nightly light shows, while the inner area is a three story open room decorated in red and orange with many brightly colored parasols hung upside down from the sculpted ceiling. Access is via symmetric grand circular staircases descending to the lower level.
I personally love the golden facade of the Wynn Las Vegas [See Photo#1], especially as it contrasts with the natural surroundings.
There is a towering mountain, lagoons, waterfalls, [see photo #2]terraced landscapes, and a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole championship golf course. There are flowers blooming everywhere. An indoor atrium near the lobby [See Photo #3] leads you through a path of flowers, trees and lights.
There is a 110,00 square-foot Casino which also has a flower pattern. Supposedly, the 50-story hotel tower has floor-to-ceiling windows that shows sweeping views of either the resort's golf course, lake & mountains, or the Las Vegas Strip.
There are more than five restaurants ranging from the Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare to the ZooZacrackers Deli [see my restaurant review].
There's a nightly light/music/multimedia show near the curtain waterfall that pours into the 3-acre Lake of dreams.
We discovered that the Wynn's elegant sister hotel property [Encore] is located adjacent to the Wynn with two entry points from inside the hotel.
This resort is home to the Penske Wynn Ferrari Maserati dealership and showroom!
Next to the Deli where we ate, there is a 195-seat race and sports book with sports and VIP lounges. The hotel also houses two night clubs, Blush and Tryst.
There are two main swimming pools with a number of smaller pools and jacuzzis. Yes, there is also a European sunbathing pool area available.
For those with money, The Wynn is a beautiful place to stay.
When Steve Wynn opened The Mirage back in 1989, he set new standards that would come to redefine the Las Vegas Strip. No longer just about casinos, the Strip became a synonym for oppulence, style and entertainment. Wynn pushed the limits even further with the opening of Treasure Island in 1993 and the Bellagio in 1998. It should therefore come as no surprise that the Wynn, his company's flagship hotel and casino, should once again mark the beginning of a new era in Las Vegas.
There is no specific theme at the Wynn, other than sheer elegance. There is also no outside attraction to speak of, since Steve Wynn's goal was to bring visitors inside, and hopefully turn them into customers. The minute I walked inside the Wynn it felt like I had just stepped into an interior designer's paradise: nothing in this hotel has been left up to chance, from the floor to the walls to the ceiling, the beauty of the place leaves you speechless. Even the waterfalls outside are obviously part of the hotel's design. Oh and if you're looking for designer clothes, forget about the Fashion Show Mall: Wynn is the place to go for Chanel, Dior, Cartier, Oscar de la Renta and Alexander McQueen, among others.
The seating is very comfortable and very easy to get to your seats. They have a great snack bar to get treats.
This show is hard to explain, it involves water, diving, dancing, ballet, trapeze, ariel displays and your imagination. Excellent and very entertaining. You never know what is going to happen next. Photograph is not allowed, but you can before and after.
While staying at the Encore, I wanted to explore the amenities the hotel had to offer. So I ventured to where the Spa is located. Decorated in an Oriental and Moroccan theme, the spa is opulent and glows in gold and silver tones. I have only been to one other spa, but this one looks absolutely gorgous. I am not surprised it was rated by Forbes as a Five Star award-winning spa. The young hostess was more than happy to give me a tour and I was very impressed with its amenities and tranquility.
Wynn is the new kid on Las Vegas Blvd., and it's worthwhile to stop by and take in the beautiful gardens full of waterfalls. If you're into home decor, the interior is something to see, especially the lighting fixtures and luxurious fabric curtains. The decor theme is funky french country with a bit of asian influence thrown in. The hotel is also conveniently located across from the Fashion Show Mall.
The lower level has a water wall outside that has laser shows starting after dusk, located beside the restaurant Daniel Boulud. The shows are every 30 minutes starting at 7:30 pm, but I would confirm that as I'm not sure if that's seasonal. We didn't see the actual show, but in the evening, before the shows start, the wall and surrounding trees were beautifully lit in morphing colors.
So, I thought the Bellagio was the ultimate of luxury. Boy, am I about 5 years behind. We went into the Wynn because of my aunt's desire to see it. Wow! My dad works in the tile business so I love how he points out how expensive the structures/floors are. The best of the best at Wynn!
We couldn't find many cheap table limits though, in the middle of the day/week so we didn't spend too much time here...but the window shopping is AWESOME! Just be careful not to max out any credit cards strolling through there.
Take some time to relax and enjoy the Wall of Dreams at the Wynn Hotel. It's a large waterfall and lagoon area during the day. At night, the lighting changes and special things appear. The water changes color and images appear as the music plays. It's really quite a spectacle.
There are many different resorts on the vegas strip that could arguably lay claim to the title of most luxurious, however for my money, the Wynn takes that title hands down. The Wynn just screams elegance. The entire hotel is nothing short of spectacular and it is very apparant that no detail was overlooked. There is a ferrari showroom for a $10 fee, but if you don't want to open your wallet to experience the Wynn than you can simply stroll through the lobby garden or take in the waterfall out front. All in all, an amazing building that will be very difficult to top.
This place is a very decent showroom of exotic Ferraris and Maseratis... the cars are dealt through the Roger Penske group and can be viewed for free if you stay at the Wynn, I think there is a $20 fee if you don't stay there... yes, the rich get richer, even if you just want to SEE the cars... I don't know if they allow cameras or not, I didn't take mine out, sometimes these places are funny about taking pictures.
I am a person who loves chandeliers so it just make sense that I will notice them. At Wynn Hotel, I saw different kinds of chandeliers and they are so beautiful...I am amazed how the interior decorator of the hotel chose these beautiful chandelier and they have an outstanding impact to the whole decor and ambience of the hotel, it's walkways, it's lobby, etc.
The chandeliers are absolutely beautiful! Check out the chandeliers and the floors when you go visit the Wynn Hotel...
The Wynn is a newer, jaw dropping Strip must-see. Seriously, I'd pay if this mega hotel charged admission. The vivid floral atrium and main lobby area is simply exquisite (Ok , just look at the pictures here. I mean, really...do i need to say more?)
2010 attractions at the Wynn:
Sinatra Dance with Me
Surely, hotels in Las Vegas are lavish but the Wynn epitomizes big money, with a Ferrari Maserati dealership, a plus golf course, luxury boutiques like Chanel and Dior, exclusive night clubs like Tryst, the world renowed La Reve by Cirque Du Soleil, and since 2010, entertainment by world's best selling Garth Brooks.
If you are not overflowed with cash and platinum credit cards, well, just remember touring this place is still free!
The Wynn is along the celebrated Strip.
