Encore - The Real Deal :
Wynn's 'sexy sister' property Encore offers an slightly more intimate take on the mega resort experience. While Encore's designs are some of the best work done by Roger Thomas and Steve Wynn, some of the dining offerings along with recent addition of Encore Beach Club and repositioning the property as a party central don't keep us there. Society Cafe has always been under flavored and over priced, Switch was a failed concept with an insanely priced confusing menu, transitioning once great steakhouse Botero into a pit stop on the way to the nightclub has sent us fleeing from Encore's adored hotel rooms. The casino floor offers great decor, high minimums and a varied mix of really tight slots and video poker. Service throughout is still excellent.
Location of Encore:
Encore Suites at Wynn Las Vegas is located directly to the north of Wynn Las Vegas, across the street from where the New Frontier and Stardust hotel/casinos were. The Riviera and Circus Circus are about 10 minute walk north of Encore. Within walking distance to the south of the Wynn complex is The Venetian and Palazzo and Treasure Island.

Cool Stuff About Encore:
Encore is built over what used to be the second (new) tower at the Desert Inn.
Check out our Encore preview feature story.
Encore is the second tower built by Wynn Resorts on the former site of the famed Las Vegas landmark Wilbur Clarke's Desert Inn. Steve Wynn bought The Desert Inn immediately after losing control of Mirage Resorts during a stock takeover by MGM in 2000. Over the next few years, he and his team of architects designed a master plan for what they called "Le Reve," before setting on the "Wynn" name at the behest of Wynn cronies Steven Spielberg, Barry Diller and Donald Trump. Shortly after Wynn Las Vegas opened in April 2004, Wynn began construction of Encore, razing the final Desert Inn buildings and preparing the grounds and pouring foundations. Encore opened on December 23, 2008. In 2009, they replaced The Strip side porte cochere with Encore Beach Club, a ginormous shrine to poolside excess.

A second spa is located inside of Encore directly above the casino level. Access to the Encore pool is through the swimwear shop on the left. As for the Spa... it's truly one of the more beautiful spas we've ever seen... men's and women's areas, with soaking pools, whirlpools, saunas, treatment rooms that adjust color and music, stone lined carpeted hallways with ancient looking Asian lamps and huge golden Buddahs.
