Encore Las Vegas Resort Suite : The VegasTripping Review 2009

Review of the Resort Suite at Encore Las Vegas

Living Area

Comfy L-shaped couch is suitable for reclining (on the extension) or putting your feet up and reading the latest issue of Wynn Magazine or a complimentary newspaper, which guests can choose from a list of choices provided at check in.

The end tables - and all pieces of furniture - feature 'no slam' drawers. There is a spring loaded mechanism inside which slows them down, and proceeds to close them gracefully and silently. Awesome!

Desk

The desk features two chairs - executive and client - Avaya phone system, fader equipped desk and floor lamp, numerous resort guides, a leather writing mat, two complimentary bottles of water (amen), and a real jade plant. The drawer to the left has all manner of stationary and smaller resort pamphlets. Below the drawer is a USB printer, should you need to make a hard copy.

One nice touch is the rounded forward edge of the desk (inset).

The desk did seem a little cluttered, particularly the unsightly array of cables on the floor by the tripod lamp.

This is the view of the living area taken from the vantage point of the desk. The TV can be seen from both the couch and the desk here. TV programming includes the usual array of channels plus porn and movies on demand. My personal favorite was the Wynn Macau preview channel which featured a resort overview narrated by his Steve-ness himself.

This has to be THE definitive review of Encore's rooms. Nicely done.

I love the houndstooth. Like the lattice pattern, I found the houndstooth used subtly throughout the resort, especially in the spa. Interestingly enough, my room did not have it but all the other ones I saw did.

Room 1948? Is it because the Chinese think 4 is a very very unlucky number? Nice review BTW

taking the Chinese numerology a step further, for the I Ching freaks out there: 1 9 4 8=22, 2 2=4, and as the lovely RockChick already noted, 4 is unlucky. The I Ching is an ancient chinese prophesizing/divination/fortune telling system, basing everything on the numbers 1-9.

Wonderful review, as always. Gracias. Encore's suites reflect everything presented in the casino and esplanade, but in a more subtle, sleek way. The suite itself doesn't look as glitzy as Palazzo's suites, but the overall package seems to be far more appealing than Palazzo. I still regret taking Excalibur's free room offer....

Just got home from a three day stay at Encore and this was nearly the perfect summary of our trip. While we lacked any shower problems, the door had to be pushed on very hard to get open and then closed very slowly unless you push it closed. The house keeper told us that most of them are the opposite, slaming shut way too fast. Left her a $40 tip (since we were going to be there 4 days) and asked for some extra towels ... came back that night to find two stacks of fresh and fluffy towels nearly 2 feet high. She even came back the next day to say thank you and ask if we needed anything else. My only complaint about the Encore is that you MUST go on the strip to get there. Most places have a back entrance for self parking or valet off of Koval or Frank Sinatra (depending on what side of the strip your on) but to get into the Encore you must turn off of the Strip and on to Wynn Blvd. Still the Nicest place on the Strip ATM.

Hi Chuck.... greetings from Deltacape after a long hiatus... That's a great review of Encore... We're planning a visit to the city in a few weeks and will surely check out Steve's new creation... Nice job!

The "Shatphone". In case of emergency, please dial housekeeping or the front desk, for more shat-paper. Thank you, and enjoy your stay.

does anyone have any idea where you can buy the popcorn?
or who packages them for wynn/encore?

I am planning a trip to Vegas in May and my package includes the 700 sqft RESORT SUITE at the Encore. Does anyone have any "tips" or "comments" for me? Feedback on their RESORT ROOMS would be helpful. Do they come with a view? If so ~ what are my options? Thx in advance ~ much appreciated!!

stood at encore last year and will return this year. amazing room with excellent service from bell staff, front desk and maids. my 1 single gripe that I can make is that I was sad to see it was not a jetted bath tub. I kinda expected a Wynn hotel to have that going for it but was disappointed to not see that. everything is phenomenal and is the best room I have stayed in vegas. so much so , i am returning for my bday.
