Encore Las Vegas, is the newest tower, which consists of over 2,000 rooms, located next to Wynn Las Vegas. On a trip to Las Vegas earlier this summer, I decided to stay at Encore, as I’ve never stayed here before and was able to find a decent price for this hotel.
This property is part of the Fine Hotels and Resorts program for those holding the American Express Platinum Card or the The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN.

I arrived early in the day, and was pleased that an early check-in was available upon arrival. Despite the hotel not being too busy, there was still about a 15 minute queue to check-in.
The agent checking in was was friendly and informed that we had been upgraded to a Encore Panoramic View Queen Suite, which is essentially just a room on the higher floor, since all of Encore rooms are suites.
The room was spacious and had a nice couch in the corner, as well as a desk with two chairs.
Encore minibar in case you want some late night gummi butterflies.
The bathroom was large and had a separate shower and a tub.
Additionally, there was a dual vanity, with a television on the side which was a cool feature if you wanted to watch some TV while getting ready.
As I had a $100 spa services credit, I opted to get a spa day pass each day which costs $40 per day. Just charge it to your room, and it should automatically be taken off your folio before you check out.

There were several hot tubs and cold plunge pools in the spa.
Additionally, there was a nice steam room and sauna.
For breakfast, we chose the Buffet, which is located in the Wynn, and there were ample items on the buffet including a dessert bar.
Encore has two pools at their hotel, their main hotel pool which is located off the front desk area.
Additionally, there is the adults only pool, which is located behind the XS nightclub. It may look quiet now, but it gets lit in the evening. There’s also an outdoor gaming pavilion which has a few blackjack tables by the pool for Encore guests.

I was impressed with Encore Las Vegas, and would consider staying here again on a future visit to Las Vegas. Booking through American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts was a great choice, despite having this hotel offer a spa services credit as the special amenity, as I enjoyed getting a spa day pass both days.
If you hold either the Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN, be sure to take advantage of this great property.
If you do want to book through Fine Hotels and Resorts, you’ll select Wynn Las Vegas, and then from the room categories you’ll choose a room that says Encore. When it comes to upgrades, typically you won’t be upgraded from Wynn to Encore or vice versa.
