David Schwartz on Wynn's Return

VegasTripping adjunct professor David Schwartz has a great piece in the lastest issue of Las Vegas Business press on Wynn's re-entry on the Strip. Here's a piece of the action:

From Las Vegas Business Press:

Wynn Las Vegas represents another step in Strip resort evolution: it is a place with more maturity and self-assurance. Spectacle -- be it a pirate battle or faux architecture -- has been replaced by experience. Wynn doesn't try to lure guests in with flash; it assumes they are already coming, and seeks to give them a personally satisfying visit. He has taken the casino resort from the growth-spurt adolescence of the 1990s into a confident adulthood.

Steve Wynn isn't alone -- THEhotel at Mandalay Bay has a similar vibe -- but gambling $2.7 billion on the concept and putting his name on the building made it clear that this would be his defining statement. Wynn invested his very legacy in the new resort, and history will likely vindicate him. Substance over style will be the wave of the future.
