    Hey People

    Not long till I am off to Vegas.

    But whilst the current trip with the lads is all organised I am still thinking about my trip next year with the wife.

    Last year we stayed in a Lakeview Bellagio Suite in the Spa Tower and loved it.

    Was thinking about staying somewhere different this ytear and thinking wither Cosmo or Wynn/Encore. Probably go for a Terrace Suite at Cosmo.

    What is the difference between the Tower Rooms at Wynn/Encore at the regular rooms. Are the stand alone pools or other extras? Anyone stayed in the regular suites as opposed to the Tower Suites that could offer any guidance?

    Cheers

    Tower suites has their own entrance and their own set of elevators. You can still use the main resort elevators to get to your tower suite, but there is also a private set of elevators and a separate check-in. The tower suites area also has a separate pool area (between the tower suites check-in and Tableau at Wynn).

    The Tower suite rooms have floor to ceiling windows and taller doors and the rooms are bigger--one additional window bigger for a regular tower suite room.

    The other thing about the tower suite rooms at Wynn is because they are on the far side of the hotel, you have less issue with noise at night from the clubs, particularly if you choose a golf course view.

    If you can wade through the other stuff, the wife posted some shots of an Executive Tower Suite in this thread. That's the smallest of the suites.

    The tower suites are run like a separate hotel. Best way I like to explain it is, staying in the "regular" Wynncore is like staying in any other giant, high-end strip hotel - whereas staying in the "tower suites" is more akin to the level of service you'd get staying at a Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, or Mandarin Oriental in any other city, even if you aren't a known casino guest or "high roller". That's the main difference. The other perks are separate pools, free breakfast, much shorter walk from elevators to room, etc. You will also get slightly better seating at the Wynn restaurants, late reservations for spa & restaurants, etc. if you book through the TS concierge (useful if you're not a player & don't have a host), and it used to - not sure if it still does - give you a line pass at the buffet & terrace cafe if you had a tower suites key.

    Cheers for the replies everyone.

    Ardee - trip report was great - very helpful

    So overall do you think worth the extra $$$ if I can afford it - I think i'm leaning towards the Tower Suites - sounds like what i'm after.

    I just want an experience that the wife will really enjoy and those little touches sound like it might just be ideal - I particularly like the idea of getting better seating at the resteraunts etc.

    I did not find any size difference in Tower or Regular Wynn rooms.

    If you do a search in google, you will find the king suites are given a range of 700 to 745 Square feet. That difference may be what the Tower Suites represent. 45 square feet may not be that noticable to the minds eye without a side by side comparison.

    This

    As Jilly says though, you do get a much higher level of service staying in the Tower Suites and it was worth every penny I felt when I stayed there.

    Marky147;

    Do you mind sharing the cost difference between the two? I have a King Suite reserved next month, and it may be worth checking into for an upgrade on arival.

    The curvature of the tower means south facing rooms are 45 square feet larger. Otherwise, Tower and Resort Suites are totally identical size-wise.

    Honestly the rooms themselves as Mike said are identical and if you've never stayed at Encore, you'll be blown away by the gorgeous rooms and resort in general. So it really depends if it's worth the addl money to you to have the private check in area and the private pool and free breakfast. I know for us, we rarely eat breakfast and just have coffee and then have an early lunch at the pool. Plus that private pool is small for my taste and I really like how the Encore resort room elevators take you right to the Lobby Bar for coffee in the morning. Decisions, decisions.... But it's a fun one!

    I love the Encore, beautiful hotel, beatiful rooms, and great staff. My only complaint is if you prefer to be able to travel to different spots by foot, it's a bit away from other hotels I enjoy (I am an Mlife player and do not like Treasure Island). Typically my journey from Encore begins by making my way over to Venetian, then to Harrahs and hop on the monorail. (I'm a taxi nazi sometimes). This all being said, i've never stayed at the cosmopolitan, however I would love to try it sometime. I've had a great time gambling there and they have some excellent restaurants. Best of luck to you.
