Wynn Las Vegas, which stands at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road, on the site of the former Desert Inn, is the flagship property of Wynn Resorts. The founder of Wynn Resorts, Steve Wynn, resigned as chairman and CEO of the company in February, 2018, rather than face what he described as ‘an avalanche of negativity’ after allegations of sexual misconduct against employees were published in ‘The Wall Street Journal’.
Nevertheless, Wynn Las Vegas, which opened on April 28, 2005, remains a five-star property, where luxury and opulence is the order of the day. The 45-storey Wynn Tower offers 2,716 rooms and suites, all of which have floor-to-ceiling windows. Sizes start at 640 square feet, as standard, but more lavish options include 1,817-square-foot suites with separate living, dining and sleeping spaces and two-bedroom, 3,224-square foot villas, complete with butler service.
Of course, Wynn Las Vegas is destination casino resort, where gaming is the main attraction. The expansive, 111,000 square-foot casino floor is home to a comprehensive assortment of table games and over 1,800 slot machines – traditional classics, as well as the latest offerings – with stakes up to an eye-watering $1,000 a spin. Sports bettors can enjoy the latest action in a state-of-the-art sports book, decked out with wall-to-wall TV screens and comfortable, plush seating.
Other amenities at Wynn Las Vegas include a wide variety of signature restaurants, casual eateries, lounges and bars, catering for all tastes and budgets, a temperature-controlled main pool, two award-winning spas, luxury shopping, an on-site theatre and an 18-hole golf course. According to Fodor’s Travel, ‘It’s classy, not gaudy, and you won’t find better service anywhere.’
