Located on the 4.2-mile Las Vegas Strip in an unincorporated town called Paradise in Nevada, Wynn Las Vegas is a luxury resort plus casino. This 2.7-billion dollar resort was named after Steve Wynn, who is the casino developer, and it’s the flagship property of the American publicly traded corporation, Wynn Resorts. Guests will definitely feel every inch of the VIP.
Wynn Las Vegas History
In August 2001, Steve Wynn revealed plans of a 514-foot, 2,455-room, and 45-story resort and 4-acre lake. The project didn’t have a formal name, and it was to be built on the Desert Inn (D.I.) site. On October 19, 2001, the name of the project was revealed as “Le Rêve,” which means “the dream” in French.
The main tower of the Desert Inn was imploded to make way for this resort 4 days later. On November 17, 2004, the rest of the D.I. was imploded. The project included redesigning of the Desert Inn golf course, and it was given a new name: the Wynn Golf Club. Purchasing private residences located along Paradise Avenue acquired the remaining property. The site that was acquired was 215 acres.
On June 2002, Steve filed for an initial public offering to help fund that project. Steve hired Marnell Corrao Associates, a privately held company that specializes in architecture as well as general contracting services, to design as well as build the resort. The cost of building the resort was $2.7 billion, making it the country’s largest privately funded construction project. On June 23, 2003, the resort was renamed Wynn Las Vegas.
On April 28, 2005, Wynn Las Vegas opened, the fifty-fifth anniversary of the Desert Inn opening. This was half a decade since the day Steve bought the site of the Desert Inn. Early advertising for this resort featured the hotel tower’s exterior images, with Steve standing on the roof, above his signature logo. Also, the initial commercial used to air in local markets, specifically during the Super Bowl, and it was eventually aired nationally as opening drew near. Additionally, a “teaser” site for this resort included the commercial plus a “making-of” video.
Wynn Las Vegas runs a quarterly magazine known as “WYNN”, which is available online as well as in the guest rooms at Encore and Wynn. Transport Workers Union of America (TWU) represents Wynn dealers.
Wynn Las Vegas Style and Character
This curved, copper-tinged building is very attractive thanks to the cursive of the signature of Steve sitting atop the place, which is the mark of the hotel owner who is ready to stand by the high standards promised. It does not fall short, the interiors are an overwhelming mixture of gleaming marble floors, gilt-edged staircases, arched dome ceiling, and the most striking floral displays as if the fictional character Willy Wonka had suddenly gotten in the flower industry. Bold colors – greens, golds, and reds – are popping out from the background creams and whites, and it is really as magnificent as it gets.
Lake of Dreams at Wynn Las Vegas
In the departure from the trend that The Mirage established, which opened sidewalk attractions for drawing in customers, Wynn is constructed such that guests enter the building to see the attractions. When it comes to this building, the main attraction is big, curtain waterfall that’s behind a mountain facing the strip. This waterfall falls into a three-acre lake.
Service and Facilities
The levels of service are impeccable; checking in is an exercise close to star treatment. The amenities are mainly focused on guest indulgence. The Spa at Wynn Las Vegas has a beautiful sunlit atrium as a reception area. The gardens are immaculate around the swimming pool area with temperature-controlled water plus hot tubs and cabanas in abundance. Even if guests cannot stretch to a personal shopper, they can ogle the designer opportunities that are along the Shops At Wynn. When that exhausts them, they can enjoy Reve’s circus spectacular at the on-site theatre.
