Review of the Resort Suite at Encore Las Vegas

Shower/Bath

The glass enclosed shower stall and tub set up is nearly identical to the ones at Wynn Las Vegas. Amenities and towels are easily at hand, had ample water pressure and was free of debris - an opening week failure at Palazzo. The single lever temperature handle seemed to be a little out of wack in our our room, the temperature was almost unbearably hot unless it was turned down to almost nothing, which turned the forceful stream into a mere trickle. Maintenance promptly sent up a repair person who left us a note saying it was fixed although we barely noticed a difference.

The shower stall also featured a hand held shower wand, with which I did my usual Bob Barker 'And the next item up for bid' routine with. There was no stall-top rain heads as we have seen in nearly all of the newer hotels in Macau (other than Wynn) - a tragic omission. No boobie washers, but who cares.

Amenities in the shower included a quartet of in-house Bambu lemongrass citrus infused goodies - shower gel, conditioner, shampoo and a large bar of bath soap. No tiny cakes of Leatherwood Collection crap, scratchy oatmeal soaps or sugary sented 'ribbed-for-your-pleasure' massage bump jobbies. This is the stuff you slip back in the box and take home with you for a few continued weeks of body bouquet by Encore.

The black marble (inset) shelf is not only quite handy, it continues the black trim motif in the bedroom.

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.
