You Can Get In….But You Can’t Get out

A booking snafu has left us stranded for an extended stay in the La Vegas Airport….

Wrong date on the ticket….and we are at a standstill…. a holding pattern….on the ground….

Lucky for us….this day…… a Rep. for US Airways…was actually at the outside desk….and went over and beyond….the call of duty…

Thankful…is the appropriate response… especially when all that is on the front page lately is the downside of air travel….and personnel…per the Sun Sentinel..a few days ago…

She managed to find us a straight flight to Fort Lauderdale…..on another airline….7 &1/2 hours later….

the alternatives were really bad…..we are so grateful to her…and you can bet an email to her employers will go out ASAP!….

Had some food in the airport southwestern restaurant….found a couple of seats….and hunkered down…with computer….papers….and taking turns walking….until the luggage can be checked in….

Final comments on Vegas….

a few extras….see previous posts …under Misc. category…….a few thoughts….

I wonder if the meticulous Mr Wynn….is aware that his cocktail servers are wearing the identical outfits as those at the Golden Nugget?…. Would he be chagrined to learn this…..or is he fully aware and paying homage?….

If you have a choice….turn away the taxi vans….the drivers are definitely not as savvy as those driving the sedans….they were infuriating with adding time …by using longer routes….

It is mind boggling the amount of disposable income….from young twenty-somethings….especially young Asians….

Young Asian women …in the Louis Vuitton store buying the luggage pieces like they were knock-offs…

everywhere you looked….major bags and baubles….

We fortunately had the chance on our way out…to finally see The Wynn pool area…. ( put on the back-burner …. due to cooler temps)….it felt like walking into another time…. of affluence and decadence…simply awestruck by the details ….( as we were with all of the never-ending special details throughout the rest of the resort )……..cabanas….with flat screen TVs….2 tiered pool choices…many hot tubs….a european type adult pool…complete with a band-shell…tables and chairs in the pool itself…and of course a huge bar…..upstairs was even more luxurious for those who were staying in the “Tower” suites…

A two tiered system was definitely in play….if you were in the Tower..you had a “fast pass” to restaurants etc…as well as special accommodations at poolside…

Amazing also …is just how many are in the employ of the hotel…not only in the casinos… almost all are connected by earphones….and an observant guest can appreciate the dynamics of it all…

Just a few minor negatives….we found …the beds were too hard…surprisingly…. not the pillow-top expected at most such highly rated hotels of late….

The Wynn rates 41/2 stars in the guide books…

No newspaper delivered each morning…at the door…

Charging to use the fitness center….seems a pass on this charge would go a long way…. heard some grumbling at check-in….

and finally…. using the BCbythesea hubby’s long-time personal rating system….the hotel pen….it was lousy…again a surprise for us after hearing of Mr Wynn’s overlooking everything personally in his hotel….down to the smallest details…. regaled by the papers…just not the pens…. so it seems…

Still…highly recommend… The Wynn….definitely…a win-win…..for us!

only 6 hours to go…..
