The Encore Hotel is certainly a cut (and a big slice) above the rest. Attaching itself to the Wynn only adds another dimension to the hotels amenities. It's just a "class joint" that depicts Vegas in what it used to be, a class town. I've been going to Vegas for over 40 years and The Encore brings back what Vegas used to stand for - elegance. Love the restaurants, the casino floor, the Wynn Sports Book and of course the shops. Great place, fantastic rooms (standard rooms are mini suites) and great pools. They only fly in the ointment might be the crowds at the clubs on Th/Fri/Sat/Sun. But it's really a good thing to see the 20 something crowd having a good time. All in all - a GREAT stay.
