I will be in Vegas in late October and want to stay in one of these two hotels. Which one would people recommend, Venetian/Palazzo or Wynn/Encore? Which hotel within the respective resorts would you recommend? I'm looking for comments primarily about the hotels and their rooms. Beds, bathrooms, decor etc. The casinos themselves aren't a big deal for me.

Why not make this a poll?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Out of the four, I vote for Encore. The bathrooms are amazing and I like the sleek, contemporary design throughout. The rooms at Aria don't even compare.

Good point. Should have thought of that. How do I edit the original post to include a poll?

I'd just like to say that I'm very interested in this as well, any comparison between the two would be appreciated.

I've stayed at Encore and have no regrets. Absolutely one of the nicest places I've ever been to. Big rooms, comfy beds and great dining. Can't go wrong with wynn/encore.

I've stayed at the Wynn and likely my next Vegas trip will be the Venetian set.

We loved staying at the Wynn and it was a top notch experience. I liked it far more than the Bellagio. Drink service was great (slower at slots) and the casino is excellent. See my review. What I like is that the hallways and ends of the casino contain some natural light. The colors in the casino I think are amazing, but that is a personal preference. I felt like a valued customer there despite my generally low level of play.

I think pluses for the Venetian/Palazzo is that the canal shoppes and St Peter's square are amazing, and you have a much greater variety of choices (most of which are in the square). Wynncore I think has the better experience overall with restaurants (with the exception of Bouchon). However, I do not like the casino nearly as much because of its overpowering smell (also a preference) and the fact that it's underground.

Don't think you can go wrong with either. I'd stay whichever one was cheaper if there was a big price difference. If not, I'd probably pic Encore.

I have stayed at Palazzo twice and Encore once. I prefer Palazzo. Encore is nice, but I preferred Palazzo for a closer walk to some of the Central Strip areas. I liked the Palazzo room better as well (I love the 'sunken' living room). Unless I missed them Wynn/Encore only had fancy restaurants while Venetian/Palazzo had fancy and not-as-fancy (Grand Lux, Food Court)
