Wynn Hotel Review

Opened in the spring of 2005, the Wynn Las Vegas is one of Las Vegas’ tallest buildings. Once the site of the legendary Desert Inn Resort, the 215-acre property combines the “Old Las Vegas” tradition with new technology, such as high-speed Internet connections and VOIP technology, in all of the guest rooms. Named for the resort’s owner, Steve Wynn, the luxurious 2716-room resort has rapidly soared to the top of the “best places to stay” list in Las Vegas. With multiple restaurants, a championship golf course, and mid-Strip location, the Wynn Las Vegas is a great choice for a luxurious and full-filled honeymoon.

Dining at Wynn Las Vegas
Restaurants at the Wynn Las Vegas range from fine dining to sports bar. In total, there are ten restaurants and dining areas. Among the highlights of the resort’s eateries are:

Alex – The Wynn’s fine dining restaurant, ”Alex”, is the recipient of AAA’s five-diamond award. Open for dinner nightly, except for Mondays, this restaurant specializes in a mixture of seafood and meat dishes, all making use of the freshest ingredients. Food lovers will enjoy the restaurant’s four-course chef tasting menu, which changes nightly.

SW Steakhouse – The Wynn’s steakhouse is located along the banks of the resort’s scenic lake. It serves up USDA Prime Black Angus steaks and quality seafood, accompanied by traditional salads and side dishes. SW Steakhouse is open daily for dinner.

Menu favorites include ”steak frites” (a New York strip steak with thinly-cut fries), duck confit, and baked halibut. Open for dinner nightly, the Brasserie also offers a choice of ”prix fixe” menus – a good value compared to the a la carte menu.

Okada – A marriage of traditional Japanese technique with abundant American produce, Okada offers surprising and innovative cuisine with an Asian flair. The casually-elegant restaurant is open nightly for dinner, and highlights include a caviar tasting, traditional Japanese tempura, and ”robatayaki” (skewers of marinated meat, vegetables, or seafood grilled over Japanese charcoal).
