One of the things we were most looking forward to on this last trip to Vegas was seeing all the new hotels that were built since our last trip. We were especially wanting to see the Wynn & Palazzo. They did not disappoint. **photos after the jump. click to enlarge**
We went to the Palazzo through the Venetian. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that the air smells like a fresh, clean flower, even in the casino where people are smoking. You don’t even smell the smoke. It’s awesome! I love all the parasols in the Palazzo. And all the fresh flowers. It’s all just so gorgeous.
You can walk across the pedestrian bridge from the Palazzo to the Wynn. The Wynn has a big water feature just outside of its casino entrance. Lots of people taking photographs there. We went in through the Esplanade entrance. The Esplanade is their shopping mall. Gorgeous ceilings. So many chi-chi shops. All empty. We’d pass the shop entrances and the shop workers would be standing in the doorways looking at us. All tall and intimidating and probably European. Sorry, Lars, we’re in a recession and I’m not in Vegas to spend $2500 on a pair of sunglasses! On the way to the casino we passed the lobby. Stunning. The Wynn is really a photographer’s delight. My favorite part was the twinkle light gardens. So beautiful. I want to go back and get married there! But I’m already married and CSP told me to get a grip.
