Wynn Week Begins
April 25, 2005 at 10:04 AM
By this point we all know that Wynn Las Vegas opens its doors this Thursday. Furthermore, we are all well aware of the supposed shroud of secrecy around the $2.7 billion megaresort.
Turns out, last week, Wynn gave the Las Vegas Review Journal a sixty minute tour of the most expensive hotel ever built on a per room basis.
Emperor Wynn, who has named himself the sole spokesman for his property, had this to say about his new creation:
"The systems and entertainment attractions are very hard to describe. That's the reason there hasn't been a lot of chatter about the hotel. It's not because we're trying to keep a secret. This is a place that does not lend itself to verbalization. So, when you start to describe them, you resort to strained attempts to communicate something no one has seen."
