Late in the summer, VegasChatter learned that the Wynn Las Vegas was giving its resort deluxe rooms a fresh new look, which they would be rolling out through 2011. Yet while we always love a good hotel renovation, we didn't see much difference in these new rooms versus the old ones.
In fact, most of the furniture was the exactly the same except that the rooms now sported tufted leather couches, plusher desk and table chairs, lighter walls, new carpeting and different drapes. But as it turns out, those little touches really matter a great deal.
We spent the night last night in a renovated room on the 23rd floor and the new "neutral and creamy" decor gives the room a much lighter and fresher feel, which is actually a bit unusual in Vegas, where so many hotel rooms use darker decor and furnishings (The better to hide the stains you see.)
