Wynn Las Vegas
Perhaps the most luxurious of all the luxury hotels in Vegas: Wynn Last Vegas is the most expensive casino resort and hotel on the Vegas Strip, with a price tag of $2.7-billion, and sits behind an artificial mountain. Its newness still attracts some looky-loos, but the rest of the crowd is more high-rollers and those who aspire to be. Its restaurants are among the trendiest in town, especially SW and Okada. If you’re looking for a high-quality dining experience without the see-and-be-seen atmosphere, make your reservations at Stratta. The golf course was thoughtfully built on the old Desert Inn course and has a stunning waterfall on the 18th hole. The Lake of Dreams show, a highlight of the hotel, can also be seen from the casino level near the lobby. The best rooms are on the 27th to 35th floors. Request a room with the private VIP entrance for only $60 more. You can also ask for a room facing the Strip if you want a view of the Lake of Dreams show from your room, or a room on the golf course side of Wynn for a sweeping green landscape that is ideal if you’re spending more time in your room.
