My stay in a 1,817-square foot Salon Suite a the Wynn in Las Vegas made a routine business trip much more pleasant.
I wrote about how I upgraded here. This review will focus on the suite and hotel amenities. John, my business partner, arrived at the hotel a day before me so I cannot comment on the quality check-in experience. I will note that the hotel has a special entrance and check-in area for Tower Suites.
Wynn Las Vegas Salon Suite
Our suite was located on the 38th floor.
As you walk into the suite, you are met with a large living room with two full-size couches, mirrored ceilings, a bar, a dining room table, and desk.
Just past the entrance, a door on the left opens into a guest bathroom (no shower) and a door on the right opens into a massage room. For a pretty penny, the hotel will send up a masseuse to your room.
The bedroom contains a single king bed with excellent bedding as well as two chairs and a dresser.
The master bathroom is huge, with two closets, dual vanities with plenty of counter space, another dresser, separate water closet, large tub with jets, and a huge walk-in shower.
Wynn Las Vegas Breakfast at Tableau
Since we booked with the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts program, a daily $85 breakfast credit was included. Frankly, that’s not enough at this five-star hotel. Las Vegas used to be the place to go not just for cheap hotels, but cheap food as well. Not anymore…at least at the Wynn. Breakfast ran about $115/day for two and it is not like we overindulged.
Cold-pressed juices are highly recommended..both the green and red…and the cappuccino was excellent.
One morning I had pancakes, the other morning I had a delicious southwestern omelet. John had oatmeal all three mornings.
Wynn Las Vegas Room Service
Room service is available around the clock. On my first night, I had arisen at 4am to catch a 6am flight from LAX to LAS, worked the entire day, and finally finished around 10pm. I was too tried to go out and just ordered a steak with soup and salad delivered to the room.
The food itself was good. My filet came medium-well when I ordered it medium-rare, but I was too tired to send it back and it still tasted great.
Once all the fees, taxes, and gratuity were added, my dinner bill jumped from about $60 to $100. Thus, I don’t recommend room service unless you like throwing away money. I should have gone out…I was just so tired.
Wynn Las Vegas Fitness Center + Pool
Fitness Center access is included in the daily resort fee. Located on the spa level, the hotel has an excellent selection of late-model fitness machines and free weights. I expected the gym to be much more crowded than it was, but perhaps people do not go to Vegas to workout…
Of course the hotel has several beautiful pools, but they were so crowded and it was so hot, I did not visit them. My skin cannot take scorching 110ºF heat.
Wynn Las Vegas Spa
Our AMEX package also included $100 in spa credit. The cheapest spa package was well-over $100, but I used the credit to buy $40 passes to the spa area. I very much enjoyed the tranquil setting, which included a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, and relaxation area. Sorry I don’t have more pictures, but I was lucky to sneak these two below during a brief period when I had the place to myself. Photos are forbidden inside this area for obvious reasons…everyone is in some degree of undress.
The relaxation area includes soft drinks, water, fruit, almonds, and chocolate-covered cranberries.
Wynn Las Vegas Casino
Obviously, the hotel also has a beautiful casino. Since I do not gamble (in that way at least…), I cannot offer any commentary other than there were a lot of people smoking and I could not smell it: the air ventilation system works. One of my salesman lost $60 in five minutes at the craps table…a wonderful demonstration of why I don’t gamble.
Wynn Las Vegas Parking
Valet and self-parking are complimentary for hotel guests. On our way out, we did wait about 20 minutes for the car.
No, this wasn’t ours…
While you are waiting for your car, there is a nice air conditioned sitting area just inside.
Wynn Las Vegas Security
One final note on security. It does appear the hotel takes security very seriously. One morning as I walked down the hall a uniformed employee with a bomb-sniffing dog walked by me. I asked if this was something new as a result of the Mandalay Bay tragedy and was told no, the K9 has been patrolling for explosives (and drugs I suspect) for many years.
To be quite frank, Vegas is not my favorite city…not by any stretch of the imagination. But I appreciated this hotel very much, especially the upgrade, and highly recommend it. In terms of luxury, it did not disappoint.
