We spent 5 nights here (9 - 14 June 2014) and absolutely loved it. This was our third trip to Vegas in 4 years and we have previously stayed at the Trump and more recently the Wynn. We decided to give the Encore a try this time for a change. Good decision.
The Encore lends itself to a pretty varied age group generally but there are a lot of youngsters present in the evenings - I think they come in from other hotels to attend the Encore Clubs. I have heard from other reviews on this site that there was a lot of noise from the Clubs - not so in our opinion but then again we were on the 62nd floor and faced the south side of the Strip (something to possibly bear in mind if you want a quiet room).
Our room was heavenly - it was a suite with a separate bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. I thought nothing could beat the Wynn for room comfort - well, I think the Encore does. The bathroom is identical to that of the Wynn but the room is significantly bigger. We were upgraded to a room on the 62nd floor because my partner wanted a view of the golf course. This cost only an additional $20 a night and we were glad we took it. If I have any criticism of the room (and it is minor) it would be the rather dubious stains on the L shaped sofa in the sitting room. We tried not to think about how these came to be there...
The housekeeping staff are unobtrusive, very low key, work really hard and are excellent at what they do. They keep the bathroom well stocked with fabulous Bambu toiletries.
We loved the pool area - the staff there are all gorgeous, attentive, friendly and are a credit to the Wynn brand. I couldn't get enough of the European pool. During the week you are relaxed with easy-listening music and come the weekend, it gets louder and clubby. We loved both but it might put some older or more conservative types off (my mother certainly wouldn't have approved....) You will encounter a lot of beautiful people at the European pool and no children are allowed in (great - no splashing, inflatables or bombing).
We didn't try the spa but it looked - and smelled - fantastic. It has a Buddha, zen-like vibe and was even relaxing to walk through. The shop located adjacent to the spa was really well stocked (loved the Coola sunscreen brand - we don't get that in the UK) and the girls who work there are lovely.
We didn't do a lot of gambling in the casino - it was a bit smoky, but we ate in some of the restaurants (loved the Asian one - Wazuzu?) and made plenty use of the Eastside Bar, Southside Bar and the duelling piano bar. The lychee martini is to die for...
All in all, a fabulous experience. Pricey - yes, but you get what you pay for and you work hard for your holiday so you deserve it. I was sad to leave but will certainly be back. This is now our hotel of choice in Vegas. Enjoy!
