Wynn/Encore: 250.00 per night: if credit card, they lock the card for 250.00 up front: if using a debit card they take the cash out of you checking account up front, for example, If you are staying 10 days your credit card is charged for 2500.00 if you use your debit card you pay the 2500.00 in cash up front. this is refunded to you on checkout. is this par for all or most vegas strip hotels.? i have stayed an NYY and MIRAGE and TI and were not required to give this deposit. when I questioned Wynn on this practice, they said well, you are saying at Vegas' only five star five diamond hotel and people do tear things up from time to time!
