Reasons Why Wynn Las Vegas Is One of the Most Iconic Hotels in the World
Sep 27, 2017
There’s no shortage of Vegas hotels, but the crown jewel of Sin City is undoubtedly the Wynn -- after all, it has the most Forbes Travel Guide 5-Star Awards of any independent hotel company in the world.
Fine dining, casual dining, vegan dining -- you crave it and Wynn will likely have it, with more than 18 restaurants between the main resort and its attached sister property, Encore.
And set your expectations high, because the Wynn restaurants hold more than 45 Forbes Travel Guide Awards.
On top of that, Wing Lei is the first Chinese restaurant in the country to earn a Michelin star.
The accolades extend beyond the Wynn restaurants. During its inaugural year, the Spa at Wynn became the first Vegas spa to receive a Forbes Travel Guide 5-Star Award -- and it’s renewed its standing each year since.
Pool scenes are bragging rights for Vegas hotels, and when the Wynn opened Encore, it immediately claimed them all. Encore Beach Club’s resident DJ lineup features world-renowned artists, such as the Chainsmokers, Alesso and Yellow Claw.
With the addition of Encore, linked by a shopping esplanade, Wynn has expanded its luxury retail roster to include Hermès, Loro Piana and Piaget, to name a few. Lest we forget: Givenchy opened its first U.S. boutique within the resort’s walls.
Its Rolex store, featuring the largest collection in the world, also serves as part museum, exhibiting timepieces from 1905.
The Wynn Dream Beds have a reputation in the hotel industry, and Travel + Leisure ranked them among the comfiest, so expect a good rest no matter your room category.
However, upgrading to a suite has its perks, including a private lobby entrance, complimentary breakfast at Tableau and access to the Tower Suites pool.
Wynn’s host of entertainment spans from music legend John Fogherty to Le Rêve – The Dream -- a water-based performance housed in the hotel's aqua theatre and voted “Best Production Show” in Las Vegas for the past seven years.
Wynn spared no expense when designing its XS nightclub -- nearly every surface is coated in gold -- and because of its iconic reputation, it has landed the No. 1 spot on Nightclub & Bar’s Top 100 List for five years running.
It also offers one of the most unique club experiences: Sunday Night Swim, in which the pool serves as the dance floor, animal floats abound and club attire consists of bikinis.
And just in case you need a hiatus from the Vegas nightlife, there’s an 18-hole golf course designed by golf icon Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn to serve as a mental reprieve.
