Steve Wynn took all the lessons learned with the Golden Nuggets, both in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and turned them into the Mirage, the resort that became the model for themed resorts for years to come. That success has driven us through the wild success of Bellagio, Wynn and Encore, Wynn Macau and Cotai, and the wildly inventive ideas coming to this day with Wynn Paradise Park, Wynn West, and Wynn Boston Harbor.
PLANET HOLLYWOOD Las Vegas Resort was my home away from home before moving to Las Vegas. The first time I stayed at the casino was during the renovation from Aladdin to the casino we know today.
This is not just another slight step of evolution like one saw from Wynn to Encore. Wynn Palace is a full blown new species with all the DNA of Wynn’s hotels dating back to even, one would argue, the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.
I, as an architect, can’t help but look back on Roger Thomas and Wynn Design and Development. Wynn D&D, and Roger Thomas, have been the driving force behind Wynn’s properties dating from Atlantic City through the newest venture in Cotai
