Review of the Resort Suite at Encore Las Vegas

The Bar

This is the mega-trippy houndstooth wall... which is guaranteed to turn your eyeballs inside out if you stare at it long enough. Set in front of it is a bar cabinet upon which is a lamp and a snack tray. The lamp base looks like a block of melting ice, and was also fitted with a fader button (prominently demonstrated in the video walkthrough.)

The painting above the bar (bottom center) is a reproduction of one of the original 25 lithographs of Henri Matisse's Nadia au Menton Pointu, 1948. This is but one of a number of 'Nadia' pieces by Matisse (more on Matisse later in the review.) Shoe fetishists might be interested to know that Zappos.com sells 'Matisse Nadia' heels... in brown and black.

A weight sensor snack tray (bottom right) is located on top of the bar, and will charge items to the room if removed for over 60 seconds. There is an electronic gizmo bolted to the bottom of the dresser which transmits the minibars 'sale' information to the billing center. Don't blame us if you get charged for everything or are kicked out of the joint should you elect to attempt hacking, defusing or tampering with it. We're just sayin' it's there should you get on your hands and knees and sneak a peep.

Behind door #1 (bottom left) is a slide out cocktail service tray with ice bucket, barman tools, two tumblers and two wine glasses. Note the matching houndstooth pattern lining the tray and red interior, ostensibly reminding you that the real party is downstairs.

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.
