The Wynn Las Vegas facility, generally known as simply Wynn, is one of the most luxurious casinos and resorts managed and owned by Wynn Resorts. The facility is located on the Las Vegas Strip. The venue opened its doors fourteen years ago on the 28th of April 2005. This $2.7 billion-worth casino resort is named after the company’s founder Steve Wynn and the company’s name Wynn Resorts.
The luxurious property covers over two hundred and fifteen acres of land located at the corner of Sands Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard just across the Fashion Show Mall. The main hotel facility has forty-five floors packed with more than two thousand and seven hundred rooms which range in size. The hotel area also includes villas and luxurious suites.
Moreover, the resort complex also features a massive 189,000 square feet casino floor as well as a 290,000 square feet convention center and a retail space with over 76,000 square feet area. Together with the neighboring Encore, the Wynn Las Vegas property includes over four thousand and seven hundred rooms which make this resort the seventh-largest hotel area in the world.
Wynn Las Vegas’ Shopping Complex and Other Amenities
As one of the most luxurious resorts in the world, Wynn Las Vegas features many other amenities besides its hotel area, casino floor, convention center and retail including its massive shopping complex Wynn Plaza and Encore Las Vegas which opened its doors back on the 9th of November 2019. Thanks to the Wynn Plaza complex, the facility is now located closer to the city’s main Boulevard.
The company responsible for the resort also planned on building Wynn Paradise Park which would be constructed close to Encore Las Vegas and Wynn Las Vegas. This massive golf course would include a twenty-acre lagoon, stunning waterfront meeting region, boardwalk as well as many other features which would surely bring extra traffic to the resort. However, the entire project was abandoned over a year ago.
