We were booked into the hotel for 3 nights, there was the usual confusion at check in as they dont have a line system, you just loiter until you see an empty desk then run to it before someone else does. I asked for a strip view on a high floor and thats exactly what I got, with no $20 trick needed. The room was very nice, black and white themed with the most comfortable beds ever.
Previous reviewers have mentioned that the walls in the hotel are thin and you can hear every sound from the next room and the nightclub. I never had this problem, the room was quiet at all times aside from the air conditioning which squeaked every so often.
Yes the minibar is expensive, $4 for a coke, i just went downstairs to the shop near the lifts and bought one for $2.50 instead. No real reason to use the minibar. The hotel has either wired or wireless internet for $13 every 24 hours, I needed internet access so had to use this but didn't think it was excessive.
It is a bit far out at the end of the strip but now there are walkways to get through the hotel through the Wynn, across the walkway to the Palazzo, into the Venetian etc etc.
All the restaurants are quite expensive, I have no desire to pay $110 for a steak or $36 for a fish appetiser, but thats just me. The shops are as expensive in the esplanade, high end designer brands with hoodies starting at $1900.....yes $1900 for a hoodie!
My only issues were that due to 'cost cutting' measures as I was told by the concierge, you now don't get the free slippers, you have to request them, you don't get a turn down service unless you request it. They are even getting a bit tighter on the comps nowadays.
Overall a lovely hotel both exterior and interior, but I think the Wynn still has the edge over the Encore. Unless you get a phenomenal rate for the Encore, stay at the Wynn, better location, cheaper food, better amenities.
