Mary A's Reviews
Hotel Reviews: 1
We did a day trip to South rim with maverick, airplane from lv to gc then trolley type bus with a couple of stops - was a very good day and well organised. You could upgrade to helicopter flight to go in the canyon too.

We've previously stayed at el tovar hotel at the South rim, the sunset and sunrise was spectacular but it is a long drive from lv.

For me it's such a long walk through the hotels to the monorail you might as just well walk up the Strip!

Wynn is at the bend on the Strip, not that far from the Bellagio in my opinion - I'd walk it - past Caesars, Treasure Island. Think the Wynn is opposite the shopping mall.

Love visiting the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon - we did a flight to the GC, helicopter down to the river, boat up the river then flight back (something like that anyway)

I did a horse ride/BBQ one time that was fun

The Mob Museum in old Vegas is good for a couple of hours

We donít really do buffets, but with our package in the Encore we get a free buffet each a day

Im hoping we can just perhaps get a f&b credit instead, worth a try 😁
I love Aria. The Wynn buffet is amazing but too pricey for us without a discount. Hope you have a wonderful time.

October we were there and we had vouchers from My Vegas I have been I donít know but at least 20 times since 1992 and last time I was underwhelmed with things we used to love. Carnage at Miarage we used to love but this time I thought it slightly better than pret.

We were invited guests to the opening of Encore, only 400 rooms occupied, lots of nice gifts slippers, robes etc, free bars all day and until the gaming floor was opened to the public, I was 10m from Steve Wynn when he said ďlet the games beginĒ great experience lovely resort I hope you enjoy it.

Apparently its improved since. Maybe had complaints? Its free so we will go anyway. I like to try a little bit of everything so bound to be something I like, and as I say it was really good in February.

A trip to the South rim can be done in a day, but only if you really can't see the chance of going again and spending an overnight on site or nearby, such as Williams,. Its worth pointing out that Vegas is surrounded by great places to visit such as red rock canyon, valley of fire, hoover dam, lake mead and death valley plus others that can be visited without taking out a whole day.

Iím hoping for another deal, as itís really expensive otherwise.

You have these little m&m looking cars, open top, drive all around red rock, pick up and drop off.

If I can master the add picture app, I will add them, they go into my added pics, but donít add? 🤣
We saw them last month, it looks so cool (annoying when youíre in a car and get stuck behind them though! )
