    Somehow we've gotten comped for two nights, could have been three, but I couldn't schedule three days before the weekend. Any tips for me? I am mostly a slot/vp player. What should I not miss? Any ideas appreciated. How much are resort fees? Parking?

    I loved Sinatra. The food was excellent!

    I'm a little late hopefully you haven't gone yet. You shouldn't have any resort fees on fully comped nights. Self parking is $15 per night and valet is $20 per night. They have hourly rates those are for a 24 hour period. I haven't had a bad meal at any of the restaurants. SW is excellent, Charlies is good and fun, Alegro is also very good, Wazuzu at Encore is excellent Chinese.

    Good luck!

    One thing to note is that Wynn/Encore does not comp drinks at VP bars. They do on the floor, as far as I know, but not at the bartops.

    Let me know how you all's trip goes. I have been thinking about giving Wynn some more play, (mostly slots) usually stay at Venetian/Palazzo now.

    Just read, Wynn stopped charging guests for parking. I would also ask at check-in if resorts fees will apply to comp'ed nights (they are likely to cover that anyway). Naturally, you may want to ask for a strip view as golf course view is no more as I recall with construction back that way. I would suggest a visit to the sports book (the bar) for VP. That is one heck of a book! And they serve food there as well. Have a great time.

    Last time we stayed on comp nights, it was Dec 2016, there was no resort fee but didn't get any of the "amenities" included with the resort fee, so would have to pay for WiFi and fitness center pass.

    OK. I have just booked my July trip and am so excited that I may ramble a bit, but Wynn is my absolute favorite place on earth! As you walk around the hotel, look for fantastic art. There is a floral art area, compete with a hot air balloon made of flowers. There is a life-size sculpture of Popeye that is guarded 24/7. Follow the Esplanade signs and exit out the door of that area and their as a water fall and also a fountain show outside, complete with music and water dancing … just like Bellagio, but smaller. My favorite restaurants are Allegro (Italian) and Red 8 (Oriental). Both are right off of the casino floor. If you have the opportunity, go see Le Reve. I don't think you will be disappointed. The restaurants tend to be a little higher priced, so there are food courts at V/P next door and Fashion Show Mall across the street. If you get a table or seat at the Parasol Bar (Up or Down) in the evening, you can see the water show. Lakeside and SW are wonderful and if you choose to go, ask or wait for a patio table so that you can see the water show. There are four different versions of the show that go off every 15 minutes at night. Make sure to get your "Red Card" from the player's club. You will get a free spin for prizes. My good friend witnessed someone win $10,000 in Free Credit on their free spin. They have many pools. They are spectacular, but go early or reserve a spot or cabana. Most importantly, take some time to just walk around the casino and take it all in. It is simply amazing and beautiful. We mostly gamble at Wynn, but Encore is connected and has a small casino. We prefer Top Dollar slots and Encore has more of them.

    MOST IMPORTANTLY: Don't upgrade to a suite at the Encore if you are staying Thursday through Sunday. Trip Advisor reviews state terrible noise from the many night clubs. We stay in the Tower Suites at Wynn and ask for a high room away from the night clubs specifically. We've only been able to feel the pulsing of the music on one stay.

    Someone sounds bit excited for July visit. LOL. Have a great time but ready for the bad news? I think Popeye has moved along. Don’t recall seeing old pop earlier this month. Enjoy.

    My recollection is that it was owned by Steve personally, rather than being company property, so I wouldn't be surprised if it left along with him. That said, there was also chatter going back a while that they were going to move it to Everett once that property got closer to completion. However, given that (1) that's still a year away, and (2) Steve's basically been scrubbed from that whole project, if it's indeed gone, I have a feeling it's primarily related to the de-Steveing of the resort.

    De-Steved - I like that. Kinda like him to also be de-something else for his past behavior.

    He's slated for the Encore Boston - can't wait until next June for a high-class casino on the East Coast
