"The Absolute Best in Vegas"
Everything about Encore/Wynn is better than anything else in Vegas. It is simply like staying at a different city.
Beautiful, clean, not as gaudy as the rest of Sin City, the only hotel that is a reasonably close second place is Bellagio (Built by Steve Wynn).
If you can, spend the extra to stay in the Tower Suites at Encore. On expedia, it wasn't that much more expensive, and includes a separate entrance which is really convenient for quick taxi rides away, and free wifi and a free room service breakfast. Also no extra resort fee, and free use of the gym.
You also get to check in at the much smaller, more comfortable and quiet lobby.
Every single one of the staff that I interacted with was friendly, knowledgeable, and polite. They all ask you how you are doing, and if you are having a good day. They don't hustle you or "upsell" you in the bars and restaurants. They are upfront and polite. They remind me of the old Ritz motto "we are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen." I'm pretty sure they copied that principle and went even further with it.
If you have a chance to do the Encore Spa, it is not to be missed. With a massage or other treatment, entrance is free of charge. It is the nicest, most well-appointed spa I have ever visited. The water cycle is amazing: waterfall shower, steam room, sauna, cool water plunge, jacuzzi, then the really cold (70 degree) water plunge. Afterward, I felt like a new person.
