Wynn Hotel History
Wynn Las Vegas is a super luxury resort and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The US $2.7 billion resort is named after casino developer Steve Wynn and is the flagship property of Wynn Resorts Limited. The resort covers 215 acres . It is located on Las Vegas Boulevard and Sands Avenue , directly across The Strip from the Fashion Show Mall.
The 614-foot high hotel has 45 floors, with the 2,716 rooms range in size from 640 sq ft to the villas at 7,000 sq ft . The complex also includes a 111,000 sq ft casino, a convention center with 223,000 sq ft of space, and 76,000 sq ft of retail space. Together with the adjacent Encore, the entire Wynn resort complex has a total of 4,750 rooms.
The resort has earned AAA five diamond, Mobil five-star, Forbes five-star, and Michelin five-star ratings and is considered to be one of the finest hotels in the world. Wynn Las Vegas and its sister property Encore Las Vegas collectively hold more Forbes five-star awards than any other resort and casino in the world. Wynn Las Vegas also made Forbes Award history by earning five-star ratings in every category - Hotel, Restaurant, and Spa - for two consecutive years. It has held the distinction of winning the award in the Hotel Sector for 4 consecutive years, since 2007. Interestingly, the building is the first high-rise to be cleaned by an automatic window washing system.
The site was assembled by buying the Desert Inn Hotel and golf course for most of the land. The buyout included the redesigning of the historic golf course, which was renamed the Wynn Golf Club. The remainder of the property was acquired by purchasing private residences that were generally located along Paradise Avenue. While some owners sold early on, others held out. This resulted in numerous legal actions between the various parties. In the end, the site acquired totaled 215 acres.
Wynn Las Vegas LLC contracted with Marnell Corrao Associates on June 4, 2002 to design and build the resort. Roger Thomas is the interior designer for the hotel, and he designed many of the public spaces, as well as the majority of components of the Guest Rooms and Villas. The original name for the project was Le Rve"" but was changed to ""Wynn Las Vegas"" well before the project was complete. The original name lives on in the stage production. Built at a cost of US$2.7 billion, it was the largest privately-funded construction project in the nation. This compares with the budget for reconstruction with the World Trade Center site which at that time was projected to be $1.7 billion.
Wynn Las Vegas opened on April 28, 2005, Wynn's wife's birthday, the 55th Anniversary of the opening of the original Desert Inn, and five years from the day Steve Wynn purchased the site. Early advertising for the resort featured exterior images of the hotel tower, with Steve Wynn standing on the roof, just above his signature logo. The initial commercial aired in some local spots during the 2005 Super Bowl, and eventually national spots as opening drew near. A easer"" website for the resort included both the commercial and a ""making-of"" video.
The hotel runs a monthly magazine, called WYNN, and is available in all guest rooms at both Wynn and Encore, as well as online at www.visitwynn.com.
On May 12 and 13, 2007, Wynn dealers voted 444-149 in favor of representation by the Transportation Workers Union. The vote is a result of controversial policy changes made by Wynn to share tips with floor staff.
Since the Wynn's completion, the resort and other hotels on the Strip has been shown in many films and television shows based on Las Vegas.
The Encore Theater was home to Beyonc's sold-out I Am... Tour, which was featured in I Am... Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas, filmed from July 30 to August 2, 2009. The resort is prominently featured in the 2009 film 2012, where the film's main characters flee a destroyed Las Vegas by narrowly flying a plane similar to the Antonov An-225 between the crumbling Wynn and Encore towers as they collapse onto one another.
In contrast to his previous hotels Bellagio, The Mirage, and Treasure Island, there is no Las Vegas Strip attraction to draw in passers-by. Instead, visitors must venture inside to see what the hotel is all about.
At its opening, the Wynn was the tallest hotel building on the strip . It was the first Vegas casino to feature a car dealership Other firsts:
It was also among the first casinos to install RFID tags inside chips to better detect counterfeiting.
Additionally, The Wynn is featured as a Top U.S. Hotel by the Zagat Survey.
Wynn Las Vegas was the first resort to include a luxury car dealership. Brand new factory-authorized cars include the Ferrari and Maserati brands. Used cars are sold as-is"" and include other luxury car brands, with some cars on display ranging in price from little more than $100,000 to $1.6 million. The dealership also includes parts and other car-wares.
Non-buying guests of the resort can go into the dealership to take a look around. When the resort opened, there was no fee to enter, but the dealership became so crowded that management began charging $10 for admission; registered Ferrari-Maserati owners are exempted from this fee, as well as children accompanying paying adults. The Penske-Wynn is one of the few casino car exhibits in Las Vegas metropolitan area. Other exhibits can be found at The Palazzo, Imperial Palace and Caesars Palace. However, the Penske-Wynn Ferrari-Maserati dealership along with Lamborghini Las Vegas showroom and dealership at The Palazzo are the only two casino/dealerships in the Las Vegas area.
The dealership is placed near the valet parking of the resort, so that people can look at the model cars while waiting for their own cars to arrive.
The cars are not the only thing that the resort offers with the Ferrari name. A Ferrari Store accompanies the dealership, Offering such goods as apparel, racing merchandise, electronics, and even a home gym all branded with the Ferrari logo. This is the first ever factory authorized Ferrari Store in North America and only the seventh in the world. The staff wear Ferrari pit crew outfits and a sound system blasts engine noises as would be heard on a race track.
In a departure from the trend established when The Mirage opened of providing sidewalk attractions to draw in customers, Wynn Las Vegas is constructed so that visitors must enter the building to view the attractions. The main attraction is a large, curtain waterfall behind a mountain that faces the strip. The waterfall falls into a 3 acres lake.
The show can be viewed from the Parasol Up , and can be viewed through a glass window with no audio. Or, the show can be viewed from Parasol Down, with a larger view. Visitors can go to the platform at the Parasol Down bar to view the show with full-volume audio. Those dining at SW Steakhouse or the new Lakeside Grill"" Restaurant may also have a full view of the show while dining.
The first production show to open was Le Rve. Le Rve is set in a 1 million gallon water-oriented theater where no seat is more than 40 ft from the stage. The production was created by Franco Dragone.
Le Rve was the working name of the resort before it was changed to Wynn Las Vegas. Le Rve"" means ""The Dream"" in French, and the name of the centerpiece painting that Steve Wynn owns, Le Rve by Picasso.
Most recently, Wynn Las Vegas bought the rights to the show from Dragone to make some changes, including the logo. Wynn now owns all rights to the show, with Dragone still in the label.
Avenue Q, a Tony Award-winning puppet and people musical which enjoyed considerable success on Broadway, was the second production show to open at Wynn. It debuted on September 8, 2005, in the 1,200-seat Broadway Theatre and closed on May 28, 2006.

On April 17, 2008, Wynn Resorts announced that Mirage headliner Danny Gans would move to the resort in February 2009. Gans moved into the theater formerly used by both Avenue Q and Spamalot, which was renamed Encore Theater and is marketed as part of the Encore expansion. Gans died on May 1, 2009.
On October 15, 2009 Garth Brooks announced that he would be coming out of retirement to play a continuing set of weekend shows at Wynn starting in December 2009.

Steve Wynn has refused to divulge the financial portion of the agreement however he has said that Wynn will provide Brooks with a private jet so that he can quickly get between Las Vegas and his home in Oklahoma.
On October 19, 2010 Wynn Resorts announced a limited engagement of a new romance, titled SINATRA Dance With Me.
