Just returned from a 36 hr weekend trip to Vegas with the wife. This is a great hotel to stay in Vegas. Great for couples. Usually travel to Vegas 1-2 times a year and I was very impressed with Encore. Got a great deal online which indicated that we were staying at the Wynn. Front desk said that we would be at Encore. No big deal; they are connected.
The room/mini-suite is awesome. The bedside remote control for the lights, drapes and privacy settings is something I wish every hotel would have. Floor to ceiling windows are nice. Love the rotating plasma tv, and found the selection of international channels very interesting. The bed was comfortable but certain people, like myself, have preferences for a firmer mattress and pillows. The bathroom is great. Separate shower and large tub, dual vanities, make-up area and stool for the wife, and privacy toilet are all extremely nice and clean. The towels are very large and comfortable, and the robes are excellent.
The only complaint I have about the room is that the doors are heavy. I can imagine that some people would find it difficult to open the front door, bathroom door, or closet doors. We did not have any noise problems.
The only restaurant we tried at Encore was Society (due to late arrival and it was the first place we found open at midnight). The food was fine. It's actually more interesting as a place to look into the casino and see the guys checking out the ladies. It's better than any tv show. We ate lunch the next day at Burger Bar at the Mandalay (a favorite of mine - burgers with jalapeno bacon and fried egg are the best), and dinner at Nobu at the Hard Rock. Nobu was pretty good, not great. Had the 100 Omakase dinner. I would say overrated but I would eat there again. Hard Rock is a strange property. So dark, the casino is so small, the poker room is pitch black, and it's so loud everywhere you go, and the front of the hotel is clustered with taxis, limos, cars, etc. Unless you are 21, have a minimum of 7 visible facial piercings and/or tattoos, or are a rockstar, I would not stay at the Hard Rock.
Wife went to the Wynn spa (thought we were staying at Wynn). We stopped by the Encore spa to take a look and the outer waiting area was nicer at the Encore spa than Wynn. Wife thought the Bellagio spa overall was better.
The Encore pools are very nice -noone was there except for one person in a hot tub. It was a bit cold in February. What is strange is that the main pool and the European pool (topless I assume as a sign says no cameras are allowed in Euro pool) are side by side without any type of barrier. I thought that other casinos section off their topless pools and charge a cover (Rio, Mandalay, Mirage, etc.), which I guess increases the perception that Encore is geared towards adults only. Maybe Encore only charges for cabana rentals, as there are many more private cabanas around the European pool than the regular pool.
We walked by Tryst a couple times. It looked like a fun place to be if you're into the club scene. There seem to be a couple different types of lines to get in. Very confusing. I felt bad for the groups of 3-4 guys in line. No way they were getting in.
The poker room at the Wynn is very nice. Fun place to play. Cocktail waitresses are easy on the eyes and service is fast.
