    I was playing around on Google Maps the other day checking out the current state of the Echelon (err, Resorts World) property. While in the area, I noticed that on the Wynn above the Lake of Dreams is 3 suites looking rooms with their own plunge pools.

    Does anyone know if they are suites and what room type they are?

    It looks like they're Tower Suite Villas. I would guess that they fall in the same category as fairway villas, just on the other side?

    Stormhawk is pretty much right.. These are also known as Apartment Villas. A completely separate category from Fairway Villas.. As the Fairway Villas are on the golfcourse, while these aren't. When you enter the Tower Suites entrance, there is a walkway to the left with elevators to these villas. One is for 1-3 and the other is for 4-6 if I recall.. Steve lives in one of these. Utterly opulent Villas from the pictures I've seen. I forgot how much Steve "pays" the company to stay in these villas, or how much is "charged" as part of his compensation, but it was reported in a previous SEC filing I saw.

    here is a closer up shot from above taken from my stay there in the TS section

    Thanks for the info, ez. This is the kind of quirky stuff I like finding out/researching about Las Vegas. It's not "hidden" per say, but it's not readily available info.
