Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
The $2.3-billion sister property to Wynn (connected via a shopping esplanade) is smaller than its predecessor. The 2,034-suite hotel with 185,000 square feet of casino and retail space is massive, but it feels intimate. Rooms are as spacious as they are refined: The smallest are a sprawling 700 square feet, with 42-inch rotating TVs, remote-control blinds, and bedside buttons that activate the do-not-disturb lights on the doors. The simple color palette—primarily black and white softened by creams and browns—is soothing and modern.
