    I've been to Vegas dozens of times. I've stayed at each of these places and I like them all. I just can't decide where I want to spend my summer trip. So, I'm hoping that by getting opinions of what others like, I might get a fresh perspective on things.

    So, assuming...

    1. Prices/upfront comps are identical (or close enough to be unimportant in the decision-making process)
    2. Trip will be during the summer months (most likely mid-July)

    Which of these three places would YOU choose? And, why?

    The games at Cosmo are rigged. I never win anything there.

    Plus all those pretty girls walking around are uptight or something. They ignored me completely no matter how hard I stared at them.

    I would go with Wynn. Great pool for the summer months, decent casino, great restaurant and great rooms

    In the past I would say Encore because I like the rooms a little better but I do like Wynn casino better.

    I'm taking my second trip to Vegas in July. I think I want to do something a bit (quite a bit) nicer hotel wise this time around. I liked The Wynn enough that despite my room comps at CET properties I'm going to stay there.

    Honestly is there a bad room to have in that building? It seems like all the rooms are great for views. Last time I had an awesome view of air conditioners.

    Voted Wynn.

    I agree. Unless you want a party scene with hot young girls and a terracE, go with cosmo. Truthfully, i feel the only thing cosmo has to offer are hot girls and a terrace with a view of bellagio fountains.

    Carve, you already know Wynncore like the back of your hand so no need to explain.

    Two fairly relevant factors, though. Don't ya think?

    I am leaning towards Wynncore. I just haven't spent all that much time at Cosmo (relatively speaking) and wanted to see if anyone would come up with any reasons for choosing it that I hadn't thought of.

    I really enjoyed Aria during my last trip (my first time there in 4 years). But their damn green A/C is almost worthless and therefore a no-go for me in the summer months.


    Thanks for all the responses and votes, gang. :beer: (I am a bit surprised to see Encore lagging by so much, though.)

    These are my to goto properties and even though Encore is my favourite hotel on the strip i like to mix it up and stay at Aria and Cosmo as well. That balcony at Cosmo is really hard to beat and that view over the B is especially nice in the summer months. For me it would come down to which room I'm staying in, if i can get a terrace suite or above i go with that over a regular room at Wynncore towersuites. Where did u stay last time? I find that mixing it up once in a while is nice so you can experience different restaurants and atmosphere.

    I have been in the Encore rooms but never stayed.... I vote Cosmo because the Balcony and the young ladies....

    That being said I think that Wynn/Encore have a better casino...

    Encore Tower Suites, though I love the Comso balcony. If I could split them up with a long stay I would do both.

    I booked direct as a wynn insider. So hoping thatll make me look like an upgradable customer. May consider the 50$ trick

    They'll give it back and tell you that you may tip them when the transaction is done, but not before. The best you'll get for free is a panoramic room, which is just a room on a high floor. Nice, but hardly worth a fifty (maybe a twenty?).

    The standard rooms are pretty damn nice, though. Enjoy!

    No it won't. You can ask for an upgrade and they may offer a panoramic view room for $20 extra per night

    The under 40 will like prefer Cosmo over Wynn and Encore. Better location and younger better crowd at the casino.
