Situated in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Neon Museum is a museum that features old signs from casinos and other local businesses.
When people think of luxury resorts in Las Vegas, Encore is one that comes to mind. It’s the sister hotel and casino of Wynn, which also lives on the site where Desert Inn Resort used to be located. The retail space called Wynn Plaza shares a busy street with all its other neighbors, including casinos like Bellagio Hotel & Casino, among many others.
The Encore and the Wynn Las Vegas have more Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards than any other resort or casino in the world. In 2020, they will be named as the second largest FTG Five Star Resort by Forbes Travel Guide with 2 stars each. Both resorts are also AAA five-diamond award winners every year since opening; The Tower Suites at Encore has received 5-star rating from “Forbes” while The Spa got it for 4 consecutive years now. With a total of 4748 rooms, these two together are currently ranked 7th among all hotels worldwide.
The resort features a massive casino, 60,000 square feet of convention space for business meetings and events with 27 000 sq ft retail area known as “The Esplanade”, a full-service spa & salon to relax in after work or before dinner at one of the restaurants. There are 4 different venues offering guests an array of options when it comes to food, including bars that serve up drinks during happy hour and also have nightly entertainment.
The building is 631 feet (192 meters) in height and 93 feet (28 meters) wide, with 63 floors. Being three stories taller than Wynn Las Vegas at 49 actual levels makes it very tall. This may be due to superstitions surrounding the number 13 as well as 4, which are unlucky numbers for some cultures such as East Asian ones that consider those digits homonyms of death or dying words, respectively.
The resort features a combination of European and Asian influences with whimsical designs, including strong reds and a butterfly motif. Roger Thomas designed the overall theme for this hotel, continuing from their original Wynn Resort’s use of large scenic windows that pervades more areas in Vegas casinos than ever before. Rentable cabanas surround 29 pools at this luxurious hotspot.
The resort’s nightclub, XS, was designed by Steve Wynn and Roger Thomas. It has a space for 3,000 guests with 40k sq ft in its design, including 152 seats in the dinner-only steakhouse, which includes Grammy award statuettes on loan from Sinatra’s estate as well as large photos of him and Stephen. Also included are Wazuzu restaurant featuring modern Asian bistro; Jardin casual dining area; Goodies On Demand cafe all together that gives an idea about what one can expect when visiting this place.
