About this hotel

- Upmarket brand-name boutiques and famous restaurants.
- Only the West End and Broadway have more shows than Wynn!
Twenty years ago, if you used the word sophisticated and Las Vegas in the same sentence you would have been certified. Vegas was flashy and trashy, and people came here for gambling, booze and a good time, preferably without the wife. Nobody came to Vegas for fine dining and theatre, and yet today that’s exactly why they come.
Las Vegas now does more business in sophisticated 3 star celebrity chef restaurants than they do on the gaming tables. Mostly this has to do with the efforts of one man; Steve Wynn. He has been instrumental in reinventing Las Vegas as a destination for discerning travellers, and has always, so to speak, put his money where his mouth is. The opening of Wynn was the three-dimensional realisation of his dream – to make Vegas a destination for people with money and taste.
Compared to all the other casinos on the strip, Wynn is very, very different. For a start it is filled with light – no more over air conditioned dungeon-like caves filled with slot machines. Wynn is whimsical and colourful in a very charming sort of way. It is Rococo-like with all the colour and flourish, but without the heavy touches. Such is the care and attention to detail that the Wynn’s strapline for its rooms is “Michaelangelo took four years to complete the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Your room took five.”
For the Wynn, hotel is a strangely inappropriate description. It should be called Wynn environment. It has more upmarket brand-name boutiques than the most cosmopolitan shopping mall, more famous restaurants than most cities, and only London’s West End and Broadway have more shows.
There is also an award-winning casino of course, but you’d be hard pressed to find the time to use it. From the Manolo Blahnik boutique to the surreal Lake of Dreams, from shows such as Le Reve to a waterfall inside Tryst nightclub and from the huge Ferrari-Maserati dealership to the 140 ft man-made mountain, the Wynn has merged fantasy with luxury in a way that will blow your mind.
The stylish rooms are more reminiscent of apartments in Manhattan, London or Rome than hotel rooms. In-room massage, manicure, pedicure and hairstyling services available.
