Travel and Leisure Magazine named the Wynn Las Vegas Encore to its “It List: 45 Best New Hotels in 2009” in its June issue. The “It List” is an annual list compiled by the magazine.
Travel and Leisure editors said while there are touches of opulence and luxury around every corner, “we fell for the natural touches: sunlight inside casino and a botanical backdrop of sculpted flower beds, laurel tree, and spotted palms that make the 2.3 million square feet of public space feel downright cozy.”
The $2.3 billion Encore, Steve Wynn’s latest creation, opened last December in Las Vegas. It has 2,034 rooms and suites, 72,000 square feet of gaming space, five restaurants and 11 high-end retail stores.
