Wynn Las Vegas is a four-and-a-half-pearl luxury hotel at the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip, a bit far from the action. It’s 2,716 air-conditioned rooms have posh interiors with large flat-screen TVs, marble accents, and gorgeous Strip or mountain views. Upgraded Tower Suites include perks like a private pool, private check-ins, and free breakfasts. Wynn’s sprawling casino is one of The Strip’s most chic, but can be smoky when crowded. The 13 fine-dining and casual restaurants include a steakhouse, Asian, Italian, and American cuisines, plus a buffet with often long waits. Other amenities include multiple pools, a spa and gym, nightclub, golf course, and meeting rooms. Travelers seeking a sophisticated stay without a casino might consider the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas with its Asian-inspired rooms, two pools, and serene spa.
One of Las Vegas' classiest luxury options, with artsy interiors and an upmarket vibe
There’s no doubt Wynn Las Vegas is a top-shelf luxury hotel when it comes to options along The Strip. The 45-story glass-walled tower is set on a 215-acre property that includes The Strip’s only golf course. Its glass-ceilinged atrium is the perfect example of its classy take on Las Vegas luxury, and while it's all quite polished, don't expect anything subtle when it comes to style. It's Vegas, after all. More than 110,000 flowers have been used to create sculptures like hot air balloons and life-size carousels, for a hint at the attention to detail you'll find here. Elsewhere, expect wrought iron accents, lots of rich white hues, mosaics, and just the right level of shimmer. However, we didn’t like the long check-in lines (it took more than 30 minutes to get our room key). The hotel itself feels like a sprawling gilded city, and can be almost intimidatingly large. The size doesn’t detract from its overall regal vibe, though. Unfortunately, like nearly every casino-hotel in Las Vegas, the posh vibe is let down a bit by the abundance of smoke in the casino. In any case, the Wynn attracts a variety of guests of all ages from throughout the United States and around the world.
Long walk from Las Vegas Strip highlights, near the Fashion Show Mall
Wynn Las Vegas is situated at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, across the street (and a seven-minute walk from) the Fashion Show Mall. The location’s a bit quieter than other central Strip spots and a healthy walk -- or most likely a taxi ride -- to nearby attractions. The Stratosphere Hotel and Casino, with its soaring tower and sky-high thrill rides, is a five-minute drive away, while it's 10 minutes by car to the LINQ pedestrian shopping area. The Bellagio’s famous musical fountains and the sights at the Paris Las Vegas are a 10-minute drive away as well. It will take just a bit longer to reach the iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign and the Mob Museum -- which traces Las Vegas’s mobbed up history. Budget 50 minutes by car to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead for those looking to take a day trip. Depending on traffic, McCarran International Airport is a 10- to 15-minute drive from the hotel.
Attractive and bright, with floor-to-ceiling windows, huge flat-screen TVs, and marble bathrooms
With floor-to-ceiling windows, Wynn’s air-conditioned guest rooms make for a light and airy stay. Rooms feature a mix of one king or two queen beds with plush tan headboards, woven-effect walls, and Pop Art-inspired accents. Views of either The Strip or the mountains are gorgeous. Light sleepers should avoid pool-view rooms, though, as even on higher floors pool parties are audible until quite late at night. Standard features include flat-screen TVs with cable channels, Chesterfield-style tan love seats, and marble surfaces. Techie options like console controlled lights, automated blinds, and climate control are a nice plus, too. Minibars are stocked with liquor, beer, soda, champagne and there are abundant snacks (fees will, of course, be steep). Other room standards include irons, ironing boards, robes, luggage stands, and built-in electronic safes.
Spacious bathrooms are clad in creamy marble and feature double sinks and modernist, brass-accented hardware. Glass-walled showers sit next to drop-in soaking tubs. All bathrooms also include small flat-screen TVs, scales, hairdryers, and illuminated beauty mirrors. In addition to the Wynn-branded Molton Brown toiletries, they feature body lotion and an array of other extras. Upgraded Tower Suites are massive and feature full-size couches, marble bathrooms, and perks like private check-ins and free breakfasts. Wi-Fi and local and domestic calls are included in the Wynn’s mandatory resort fee.
Three pools, sprawling casino, restaurants, spa, fitness center, golf course, and nightclub
Given its exclusive playground-of-the-elite vibe, it's no surprise that features here are luxe and numerous. Though all of those extras do mean that fees and price tags aren't low. Of course, some of the Wynn's perks don't cost extra. The pools are surrounded by loungers and umbrellas, and include a huge family pool, and an adult-only, topless-optional pool. The pools also feature heated whirlpools and accessible lifts. There's also a private pool for those staying in the Tower Suites. Cabanas are available, but cost extra.
Wynn’s pricy food options include fine-dining and casual eateries that get mostly positive reviews. Be prepared for long lines though, especially at the buffet. Fine-dining options include Italian, Japanese, American, and Chinese cuisines. Most have dress codes that range from business casual to formal attire. For casual eats, expect Italian, a cafe, tapas, Asian, a deli, and a tasty buffet. The buffet also has all-you-can drink alcohol options for an extra fee. Bars are scattered throughout the hotel. The massive casino is loaded with table games, slots, and a sports and race book. It’s pretty smoky, especially when crowded. When it comes to entertainment, Wynn’s nightclub, Intrigue, takes a back seat to Encore, its sister property next door. Partying guests mostly head there for the pool parties and big-name DJs. The two hotels also share a theater with acts that have included Diana Ross plus a Cirque du Soleil-inspired residency called La Reve.
The gorgeous Wynn spa offers standard services like massages, body treatments, facials, manicures, pedicures, and salon services. It draws visitors staying at the hotel and those looking to sample a bit of luxury who are staying at other properties. The gym is located in the spa area and stocked with treadmills, stationary bicycles, recumbent bicycles, elliptical machines, weight machines, dumbbells, and free weights. Fitness classes and personal training sessions are available for a fee. It’s worth noting that the gym closes when the spa closes, which might be too early for some. Wynn also has The Strip’s only golf course. The 18-hole green was designed by Tom Fazio and offers free Callaway club and Foot Joy shoe rentals.
Multiple designer boutiques, ATMs, a business center, and a car rental office are all scattered throughout the property. There's even a 24-hour drug store on-site. The hotel’s concierge can arrange tours, airport shuttles, dinner reservations, and show tickets. They also rent cell phones, two-way radios, computers, and copiers. Wynn has wedding space for up to 120 people and 200,000 square feet of meeting rooms and convention space. Laundry service is available. Wi-Fi is provided as part of the resort fee, though parking -- sadly -- will cost extra.
