Wynn Las Vegas, known more informally as The Wynn, is the flagship property for Wynn Resorts. It opened its doors on the Las Vegas Strip to much fanfare in 2005 and typifies the second wave of Las Vegas casino hotels that opened around this time, with a focus on modern, luxury aesthetics rather than novelty and themes.
The Wynn Las Vegas has 45 floors and just over 2,700 rooms. It also houses a large casino, a huge retail complex, restaurants helmed by top-tier chefs, a convention center, theaters, and a spa. Together with its annexed sister property, Encore Las Vegas, it is the 7th largest hotel in the world and holds a plethora of five-star awards. The property easily holds its place in our list of the best hotels in Las Vegas.
Even luxury hotels in Vegas routinely offer good value deals, though higher-end properties such as The Wynn don’t often dip below $200 to maintain their image of exclusivity. However, in part due to the pandemic, many five-star hotels are offering steeply discounted room rates, and Sin City is no exception. When I saw an offer for the Wynn of $149 per night (plus taxes and fees), with a third night free if two nights were booked, I couldn’t resist.
I was slightly wary of visiting a Vegas hotel during the pandemic, but the new policies and standards listed on the hotel website ensured me enough to book a stay. I was also keen to see for myself how large Vegas properties and casinos were really handling COVID-19 and if new policies were being strictly enforced.
The good news is that my experience was a very positive one, and I was suitably impressed with how the hotel handled health and safety. The standard rooms, which were really more like suites, were also particularly impressive, and I would place them among the most stylish of those I’ve stayed at in Vegas. The in-room amenities were outstanding, especially for the price. The resort wasn’t quite operating on all cylinders and some of the usual draws, like the live theater shows, weren’t available. But I would still recommend The Wynn as a great Vegas option right now, especially given the current low starting rates.
