    What is the design style of Wynn Tower Suites?

    One of the major motifs at Wynn is nature and the concept of bringing the outdoors inside. The major mosaic motif is floral, and you’ll find lots of trees, foliage and windows. All of the plants and trees here are real. You’ll also notice that these elements help Wynn feel like a residence, as do all the mirrors. Steve Wynn wanted to build a large resort that would retain a feeling of intimacy. One of the analogies he uses for Wynn Las Vegas is that it’s like New York — large, densely populated and divided into small neighborhoods. Only two of our restaurants are located off the casino floor, for example, and all of the others are nestled within the resort to be discovered on their own.
