We visited the Wynn from the UK, 9 thru 16 September 2005. Our first trip to Las Vegas and our 40th Wedding Anniversary.
In our view you simply have to make the Wynn your base for your Vegas visit .... the rooms, service and facilities are just excellent ... and it is right on the spot with regard to location of the "new" Vegas.
Spend a little extra on the rooms here to enjoy the place and save money by eating/entertainment ouside, if you have to .... but stay here! Views from the 60 floors are great (golf course, bit of strip to north, strip south) ... we enjoyed watching golf over breakfast in the room (coffee and muffins from coffee shop in Wynn).
In the mall opposite there are 3-4 good to excellent resaurants only a stroll away;
The Capital Grill is fine dining and will set you back as much as the top restaurants in the Wynn but Maggianos (Italian) and Ba Ba Ree Ba's (tapas) are both high quality and not too high priced.
In Maggiano's, share!!!! the portions are huge. Share a starter and share a main ....we ended up sharing a half potion of the main pasta courses at lunch time.
Ba Ba Ree Ba's is tapas so take a good look at ALL the menu and select 2-3 dishes and share.
At the less expensive end but generally good is the OUTBACK Steak House (15 min walk down strip to south of Wynn) Coconut shrimp and Steak good bulk stuff ...even if the surroundings are a little tacky.
Wynn casino great even for novices like ourselves. Minimums a little higher than others but drinks are free and plenty of the best girls in town to serve you!!! Staff always willing to teach and help.
As casinos, do not yet feature strongly in UK ( but shows and good restaurants do!) we decided to allocate funds to gambling and keep shows/restaurants to a modest level .... have fun at the tables.
Overall we lost of course but we did have two good wins at roulette .... placing 10 1$ chips on the same 10 numbers each time ....and doubling up when winning more than 10 chips (high rollers ....not!). We lasted a fair time and cut out when we doubled our money .... but that only hit twice!
The Wynn location directly opposite and connected to the Fashion Show Mall (500 shops)is a massive bonus for the ladies and being walking distance from all the main hotels in central/north strip it is where it is at ....In our view avoid south strip it is not where it is at!
Also visit Freeman Street after dark!!!
We had a great time and the location, rooms and facilities at the Wynn are the perfect foundation .... do not slum it, only the Wynn and Bellagio are worth consideration ... in that order!!!
