Steve Wynn's Excellent Penmanship

The $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas resort opened its doors April 28, immediately becoming the Strip's It casino. With more than 2,700 rooms, it's also one of the largest. We wondered: With the surfeit of big-budget options available in Vegas these days, is the Wynn a winner?

After giving the resort about a month to work out any kinks, we checked in on a Thursday night, securing a surprisingly reasonable rate of $209 for a double through www.wynnlas vegas.com. (According to the resort, in its first 34 days of operation, the Wynn operated at 91-percent capacity with an average room rate of $308.) We spent a day and a half exploring the casino, health club, pool, restaurants and anything else we could sneak into.

Our first impression: Steve Wynn has excellent penmanship. The developer's artfully scripted surname is stamped everywhere on his property, from the tip of the hotel tower to the teensy pillow atop the downy mound on beds. And Wynn Las Vegas is replete with touches from his previous Sin City projects - Treasure Island, Mirage and, particularly, Bellagio.
