Zagat's 2006 Hotel Guide Gets It Wrong
The latest megaresort to open in Vegas, this Steve Wynn property has just about everything: a 111,000-sq.-ft. light-filled casino, a dozen restaurants from top chefs including Daniel Boulud, a collection of upscale boutiques, an art gallery of masterworks by the likes of Picasso and Van Gogh, an 18-hole Tom Fazio/Steve Wynn golf course, a full-service spa, a man-made mountain with a five-story waterfall and two showrooms (one housing a new aquatic show by Cirque du Soleil founder Franco Dragone); accommodations include Fairway Villas facing the greens and a VIP tower with a separate entrance.
Steve Wynn gives us the most material of any hotelier ever, at least in the year 2005, and all Zag can come up with is this drab paragraph of nothing? This Zagat's Gets It Wrong has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the rooms, or the service at Wynn, all of which we could debate endlessly. No, Zagat got it wrong by saying absolutely nothing about one of the biggest hotel openings of 2005--and this is suppose to be a guide for the year 2006. Don't let the future pass you by.
