Our Encore Las Vegas Review:
Steve Wynn went all out for his latest hotel venture at Encore, shooting his new property on the Strip to the front of the line in terms of room quality and overall gratuitous opulence. Nothing comes cheap at the Encore Las Vegas, but if you can afford a room here then the extra surcharges probably won’t matter anyway.
The 2,000-plus suites of this resort hotel are one of the main highlights, weighing in at around 700 square feet to start. There’s an obvious attention to detail and luxury here. The sleeping area and living space are divided by a partition, thoughtfully adorned with a massive flat screen television and equipped with elegant but not ostentatious furnishings. Everything in the rooms is operated with a single remote, from the curtains to the lights.
And then there are the bathrooms. Unnecessarily huge, with marble and gleaming metal at every turn, and towels and terry robes you could die in. In reality, the room rates at the Encore aren’t celebrity-grade. In fact, the reasonably prices doubles are pretty good value considering how nice they are.
The meticulous attention to design extends beyond the bedroom, evident in everything from the hallways to the poolside loungers. The sun-drenched Mediterranean style of Encore works well in the Nevada desert, where natural light is invited into the resort rather than shunned with blackened windows.
Even the casino employs plantation shutters to create an environment more akin to the Caribbean, letting sunlight peek in during the day. The subtlety of theme is consistent with the new trend in Vegas towards quiet style and away from gaudy stimuli. Good luck symbols are integrated into floors and there are no floors 40-49 (a nod to Asian gamblers).
There are two swimming pools, with one for all ages and the slightly smaller European pool for adults only. Again, the pools and lounge chairs are fantastic at Encore though the poolside food service is disappointing ― more like an airplane meal than a snack you’d expect from Wynn.
Five restaurants are on hand and do a far better job at impressing than the pool grub, from an interesting French-style steakhouse to the comprehensive menu of the 24-hour Society Café. The bars and nightclubs at Encore are rather exclusive, requiring dress codes and deep pockets. Famous live performers are a common feature at Surrender, the main bar, while Tryst offers a more intimate spot to meet and hook up.
The Spa at Encore boasts 70,000 square feet of rejuvenation and relaxation, and is among the top spas in Las Vegas. Another unique feature of Encore is its championship golf course, situated directly behind the hotel and the only one of its kind anywhere near the Strip.
If Encore starts to wear thin, its sister resort, the Wynn Las Vegas, is within spitting distance, offering an even larger array of luxury amenities. Between the two, there’s more than enough fun to go around. While the Encore is anything but a budget casino resort, most guests walk away thoroughly satisfied with their experience.Been here?
