    What did the in room breakfast include. Was there a price limit or limited menu?'

    At the base of the tower suite elevator there is lounge for invited guest. Can any tower suite guest enter that lounge (sign says invited guest)?

    Thanks for response.

    Good question !! I'm getting comped in the Tower for the first time ever in a month and I have no idea what the difference will be between it and the regular Resort side.

    I get the Tower Suite rooms comped - but I am not full RFB. And, evidently when this is the case, the "free" breakfast ain't free! I was told that since I was comped, I would have to have my host take care of breakfast. So, that being the case, I didn't bother finding out what the "free" breakfast consisted of, I just orders what I wanted. My host did end up taking care of my breakfast...but it ended up being far from free. So, apologies to the OP...I can't really answer that question.

    If memory serves, there was a sign on the lounge by the Encore TS elevators that said "RFB Only" or something to that effect.

    I know no one asked, but I prefer the Tower Suites on the Wynn side (not that I was at all unhappy with the Encore TS).

    A follow up from the Wynn:

    Thank you for reaching out. The daily breakfast limit in our Tower Suite is $40 per person. Unfortunately, line passes to The Buffet are not included.Kindly,
    Wynn Las Vegas

    not sure what they mean that line passes are not included.. i don't usually hit the buffet but the few times i did my tower suites key (not RFB star) always got me in the short line.

    Lounge

    I believe the lounge technically is for comp'd guests (would have a star on the corner of your room key). That said i cannot recall ever having to produce my key for entry.

    Ok, so what are the benefits, if any, in paying for a basic room in the Tower side. The basic room is the same as the basic ones on the resort side, you apparently can't use the lounge, no free breakfast, and now possibly no line pass for the buffet ?! I'm totally confused.

    I believe you still get the free breakfast if you pay for the room. When I inquired, I was told that because I was on a comp, I didn't get the free breakfast. I was under the impression that you would get the breakfast if you paid for the room.

    You also get...

    Separate check-in. I've never waited long at either Wynn or Encore on the resort side - 10-15 minutes, tops. But on the tower side, there's never been more than one person ahead of me. And most of the time, I've just walked right up to the clerk (usually greeted with a bottle of water and cold towel if it's hot out).

    Separate Porte-cochère and, more importantly, cab-stand. More often than not, this isn't a big deal. But it's nice when it's busy.

    Separate elevators and short walk to the room. Again, not a big deal, but occasionally convenient.

    Three or four (sorry, can't remember which) items pressed per day. I didn't realize this the first few stays. But since then, I've definitely taken advantage of this perk big time (of course, I'm a complete moron because I had the temerity to tip the bellman when he picked up and - the horror - delivered the items:rolleyes2:).

    Two free bottles of water/day.

    Turn down service (with two more bottles of water if you move the ones from the afternoon from their original location).

    A little more peace and quiet than the typical strip hotel, IMO.

    Generally, better service.

    Is it worth the ~$100/night premium (based on a quick look at rack rates)? Dunno...I probably wouldn't pay it unless I was getting a suite. But if you're comped, want to splurge, or can find a deal, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    You do get the in room breakfast..$40.00 per person and no resort fee. During my recent booking I was asked if I would want to stay in the the Tower Suites for an additional $80 per night. I will be notified within 48 hours of check in if I got the upgrade. It sounded like it was worth a try..Resort fee with tax is about $28.00 and leaves me at $52.00 cost. I think it might be worth a try..

    That’s right. I forgot about the waived resort fee. A $52 difference doesn’t seem at all unreasonable to me.

    "temerity"

    LOL. I was just poking fun at the argument that was going on in another thread about tipping.

    I really don’t know what protocol is. I pretty much just tip anyone who comes to my room to do something for me, whether it be picking the clothes up or dropping them off. Of course, I’m usually not in room for one of two events, so it’s usually only one tip.

    thecarve, when you stay in the suites, is the incidental hold more? or is it still $150/night?

    Sorry, sco. I can't remember.

    I assume it's the same $150/night that the Resort side holds. But I have to admit, I usually just zone out to whatever they're saying. I just want my keys so I can get my gamble on...where do I sign, dammit?!:eek:
