This resort next to sister property Wynn has design elements in public spaces that include Venetian-glass mosaic floors and pearl-inlayed marble from Asia. "Swanky and modern" quarters are "bright and open" with lacquered ebony, mirrored walls, white sycamore furniture, hounds-tooth patterned wall panels, and views of the skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. Wazuzu celebrates the flavors of Asia; Botero, serving steaks and and chops, morphs into a club at night.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The $2.3 billion sister property to The Wynn (connected via a shopping esplanade) is smaller than its predecessor. It's difficult to describe a 2,034-suite hotel with 185,000 square feet of casino and retail space as intimate, but Encore feels friendlier and has more sex appeal, in part because the decor is very, very red—from the butterfly-patterned carpets to the Rubino glass chandeliers. Encore's most sultry space by far is the Botero steak house, one of five restaurants, and out on the European Pool deck, where topless babes sunbathe while their companions smoke cigars and play blackjack. Rooms, thankfully, don't have scarlet fever and are as spacious as they are refined: The smallest are a sprawling 700 square feet, with a 42-inch rotating TV, remote-control blinds, and a bedside button that activates the do-not-disturb light on the door. The simple color palette—primarily black and white softened by creams and browns—is enhanced by the range of textiles and textures, from the plush velvet sofas and wispy chiffon curtains to lacquered dressers and coarse houndstooth wall coverings.—2009 Hot List
