I stayed at the Encore for an evening on December 27th, less than a week after it opened. A close family friend had arranged for my father and I to have a room through the more exclusive Encore Tower Suites (which feature a separate entrance and a much higher employee/guest ratio, similar to the Tower Suites at Wynn). Due to the buzz for the hotel, they actually ran out of Tower Suites and placed guests, including us, in adjacent rooms in the "Resort Tower".
First, lets be clear: The Resort Tower and Tower Suites are in the same building, and actually connect to each other on ever floor but the lobby. These rooms are simply the closest six or seven rooms on each floor to the Las Vegas Strip. Guests of either side can freely access the other on each floor. The Tower Suites side has a few much, much larger rooms, but I had an opportunity to compare the "standard" suite on both sides and they are virtually identical, however the Tower Suites side uses a different color palette that favors golden hues. The carpet, artwork, and wallpaper of the Tower Suites side is slightly nicer, and the section features its own driveway as well as a guest lounge with complimentary food on the lobby-level. We were able to have access to all of the Tower Suites amenities despite the push to the Resort Side. I do not feel that anyone will feel a difference from the pure aspect of simply the rooms themselves.
Now onto the room: I stayed in one of the standard guest suites, which come in at a minimum of 745 sq ft (69.2 sq. meters). The contemporary design was loaded with superlatives: the layout was very spacious (not difficult, considering the size), the amenities were all of high caliber (including a large LCD TV, an iHome bedside music player/alarm), and excellent views of The Strip, mountains and general area. The bathroom was equally spacious and featured a nice shower as well as quality toiletries.
The general casino areas are attractive, with bold designs and even more natural light than the Wynn. There are influences from the Wynn Macau (designed between the original Wynn and Encore), and the Wazuzu features a large crystal dragon like the one found at the Macau location.
Between my father and me, we've sampled some of the world's finest hotels in the US, Europe and Asia. We agreed that this hotel stands among them, specifically for the high level of service by all levels of staff --not merely those in the Tower Suites section. Las Vegas is a lot like an adult Disneyland in that the staff and atmosphere are aimed to be so pleasing that you don't really pay much mind to exactly how much you're spending (and it can certainly be spendy). This was the first time on roughly 20+ trips to Las Vegas that I actually spent all my time at one resort.
