Background:

Wynn Las Vegas is among one of my favorite Las Vegas properties. I have stayed here numerous times over the years, and it definitely has a leg up over other comparable properties such as Aria and Venetian/Palazzo to me. I wanted to come with family during the winter holiday season, and so a trip was booked to try one of the new Wynn Las Vegas renovated rooms!

Takeoff Points:

Date of Stay: December 2022
Room Type: Panoramic View 2 Queen
Pros: Nicely appointed renovated rooms, lighter crowds than other mega-resorts, and solid bedding.
Cons: In-room toiletries could be better.

Booking:

I booked my room at the Wynn with a two-night complimentary offer from my Ocean’s Resort Atlantic City Prime Rewards that I got when I status matched in Atlantic City. It took a few weeks for my status to show on Wynn’s system, but once it was there, it was quite easy to make the reservation over the phone. With this stay I got a $50 dining credit, and no resort fees but I wouldn’t have access to the fitness center, or get free Wi-Fi, which was fine by me.

At booking, the agent said I could stay at either Encore or Wynn, and take a one king room, or two queen. Generally, I would prefer Encore as the connected sister tower is more boutique feeling (less crowds) and has larger rooms. But, the Encore hasn’t been updated yet, so I wanted to try a new room at Wynn!

Thankfully, after the renovation that was just finished earlier this year in 2022, Wynn upgraded its two double bedded rooms with two queen beds instead. This is much more comfortable when traveling with a family.

Arrival + Check-In:

After parking, I walked to the main lobby of the Wynn to check in. They had some nice decorations up near the lobby for the holidays, and it felt nice and festive.

Cute sculpture!

I checked in on a Thursday around 8pm, and there was no line to check-in. I was quickly helped by a friendly associate, who gave me a nice high floor room upgrade to Panoramic View on the 53rd floor facing the golf course.

Headed to Room:

Then, I was on my way to the room! There was interestingly a short line for the guest room elevators, which I encountered during my stay around dinner time and at night. They generally weren’t too bad, but perhaps during a peak weekend, it could be worse.

I’ve stayed in both the Wynn King Resort Room and the Two Double Resort Room before the renovation, and if you’re interested you can see my old review here. I really enjoyed the light tones at the time, and was a bit worried when I saw the photos of the renovated rooms online as the rooms looked a lot darker. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised in person. The rooms looked great to me!

The Wynn standard rooms are a roomy 640 square feet, and my room offered two queen-sized beds. It felt very new and fresh.

Wynn 2 Queens

There is a bench in front of one of the queen beds, and a sofa in front of the other. A large table with two chairs also accompanies the center of the room. I felt like the room design was quite good, and it felt spacious.

I liked the Moon desk lamp at the table, as it felt very futuristic.

Minibar Snacks

As with most Vegas resorts, coffee + tea makers are not provided, but they do have minibar items for purchase.

Amazon Echo

There is an Amazon Echo in the room, and Alexa can open/close drapes, play music, turn on/off the lighting, among other functions. The only thing it seems she cannot do is turn on/off the TV.

Two Queens!

I found the beds to be quite comfortable. In general, Vegas five star resorts are not up to par with normal five star resorts, but Wynn may be that exception. The bedding was of high quality, and the pillows were plush as well.

Bathroom:

Wynn Bathroom

I actually thought the bathroom was quite nice, with two separate sinks, a tub, shower and separate W/C. The floating cabinets in between the sinks were quite useful as it allowed for extra counter space. On top of the normal shampoo, conditioner and lotion, cotton swabs, shower caps and shoe shine were provided. The only complaint I would add is that the hotel branded toiletry scent used feels a bit low end and doesn’t smell great.

On the plus side, the TP was really soft. This is something I feel that five star hotels have been cutting back on, but not here at the Wynn!

View:

We faced the Wynn Golf Course, and it was a nice view to wake up to in the morning.

Dining:

I had a nice dinner at the seafood focused restaurant, Lakeside, one night, you can check my review of Lakeside here if you would like. If seafood isn’t your thing, Wynn also has 20+ other dining options on site, so you’ll be able to find something you like.

Great outdoor patio and views!

I also got pastries one morning from the 24/7 coffee shop, Caffe Al Teatro. The pastries were a bit pricey (around $6-7 each), but they were pretty good.

Amenities + Location:

The Wynn property grounds are quite luxurious and very well kept up. The casino floor is probably one of my favorites as it is generally calmer than other hotels, and very clean.

Wynn Casino

There’s a new show at the Wynn that replaced Le Reve. It’s called Awakening, and it’s one of Las Vegas’ most expensive theatricals, carrying a price tag of $120 million.

There is a Spa + Fitness Center, but I did not visit them on this trip. The photos online look quite nice.

Self and valet parking at both Wynn and Encore are complimentary. The Wynn self parking lot was full both nights, and I think it might have been due to Christmas shopping across the street at Fashion Show Mall? So we had to park at Encore, but the indoor walk isn’t too bad.

The Wynn Las Vegas is located on the North end of the Las Vegas Strip. For access to other casinos and attractions, it is connected by pedestrian bridge to the Palazzo/Venetian as well as the Fashion Show Mall. You can also walk across the street from Encore to the new Resorts World Las Vegas. Some may feel like it’s a bit far to the center strip, but I like the location as it’s easily accessible by car, and still walkable (or a quick Uber) to most places.

The Verdict:

Overall, I truly enjoyed my stay in the Wynn Las Vegas renovated rooms. It remains one of my favorite properties to stay in Vegas. Freshly updated rooms along with peaceful and well-appointed common areas make the Wynn a solid luxury Las Vegas resort option.
