I'll give you an update since I'm staying there for a night in a little over a week.
A little off topic but I wondering how Wynn's tower was architecturally situated. On what level do the tower suites start and what does the Wynn floor plan look like? Thank you.
Yeah, this topic is probably better some other place.
Floor plan for the tower? It's a curved line with rooms on either side of a hallway.
The Tower Suites portion is the Southern side, about a third with the Resort Tower the rest of the hotel.
I believe the Tower Suites start as low as the 8th floor.
For all of the fuss made about pedestrian access from the Strip, I have always felt vehicle ingress/egress and parking were the true "fatal" design flaws of the Aladdin. The subterranean entrance, once you find it, has all of the charm of of the Holland Tunnel. Self-parking is an equally unpleasant experience, due to both the long walk, and what I felt was a lack of security. Failure to address either issue will diminsh whatever positive changes they do implement for the rest of the property.
