My Experience At Wynn Las Vegas

I have been to Wynn Las Vegas numerous times through the years, but I’ve never had the chance to stay at the hotel.

I’ve visited the casino floor, gambled in the sportsbook, and played my fair share of video poker at the bars. I’ve gone to shows like Le Reve (which has closed) and enjoyed my time at the resort.

The thing that has always impressed me at Wynn is the level of service. In my opinion it’s the best in Las Vegas, slightly edging out Venetian and Cosmopolitan

I don’t go to Wynn very often for one simple reason–it’s really expensive. This is a high-end resort for budgets larger than mine. As a local, it’s hard to splurge when there are so many great deals throughout the city. But when I’m in the mood for good service and a luxury experience, Wynn is always atop my list.

In this Wynn Review, I considered quality of service, amenities, and class of hotel. My review is based on my personal experience and the general sentiment of reviews I’ve read.

Located in the Wynn tower you’ll find The Spa at Wynn, which was recently renovated to have a more contemporary, nighttime design and color palette to align with the mission to soothe and relax patrons. Spa services are customizable and flexible, meant to meet your goals and physical needs.

Encore also offers their spa, The Spa at Encore. The design of this spa differs from The Spa at Wynn in that it emulates a garden oasis with areas specified for complete relaxation. Many of the treatments at The Spa at Encore are Polynesian influenced, such as the Nalu Body Ritual or the Encore Escape.

Restaurants & Bars at Wynn Las Vegas

Expect nothing but the best quality seafood at Lakeside, a four-star restaurant as rated by Forbes. Hawaiian seafood that has been line-caught by a family-owned fishing business is flown into the Wynn every day. Lakeside’s expert chefs highlight the freshness of the daily catch with simple preparations alongside more creative dishes like oven-roasted crab or lobster. The dress code here requires a touch of elegance and formality, and children under five years old are not permitted. This luxurious, fine-dining experience should be on your itinerary! 

Superstar chef Min Kim showcases the best of Japanese cooking at Mizumi with fresh sushi, sashimi, and delicacies from the Far East. Forbes also rated this restaurant with four stars for not only its excellent cuisine but its atmosphere. Guests can enjoy koi fish ponds, a view over private Japanese gardens, and a 90-foot waterfall right outside the restaurant. Menu recommendations include the sashimi usuzukuri and the wagyu hot stone Ishiyaki style. Cap off your meal with a Yuzu highball cocktail and you will feel relaxed and luxurious. 

An homage to everyone’s favorite Italian-American singer, Sinatra embraces the style and culture of Frank Sinatra. This restaurant offers elevated versions of your favorite Italian classics such as osso bucco, spaghetti and clams, lasagna Bolognese, and many more menu options. For a special dining experience, guests can request a table on the outdoor patio, which is surrounded by floral gardens and incredibly cozy, fireside dining. The atmosphere is swinging with classic Sinatra songs and mementos of his legacy. 

SW Steakhouse has a finely curated menu of the best prime beef cuts and certified Japanese/domestic Wagyu are what gave SW Steakhouse a four-star rating from Forbes. Enjoy chophouse classics through a modern, refined lens with dishes like the chile-rubbed double rib eye, which was featured on Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate!” Stay for dinner and experience a multimedia show on the Lake of Dreams, unlike anything you’ll see on the Las Vegas Strip.

Wing Lei is a five-star Chinese restaurant and was the first Chinese restaurant in North America to earn a Michelin star. The atmosphere is luxurious with a dining room drenched in gold fixtures, gorgeous Chinese-style lanterns, and every detail is made to count. Wing Lei serves Shanghai, Cantonese, and Szechuan style cuisine and a highlight from the menu would be the Peking duck that is carved tableside!
