Wynn Macau : The MacauTripping Review 2007
Detailed Photo and Video Review of Wynn Macau
Resort Elevator Lobby
Much like the Resort Tower at Wynn Las Vegas, the decor of the vestibules and hallways consists of contrasting dark chocolate and creme hues. On a table to one side are two lamps, an oddly interesting vase and another house phone. A door leading to the ice machine room is on the opposite wall. The frosted glass doors to the ice room not only hide and baffle the noise of unsightly ice machines but they tell the visitor immediately upon arrival where, exactly, the ice machine is located. If I could add up all the frustration and time I've spent searcing for ice machines in hotels, I could probably sit through a large portion of the first two chapters of The Godfather Trilogy. This is a subtle touch that invisibly adds to the overall experience of the resort experience. It is the sum of these touches that provides the effortless splendor of Wynn Macau.
The hallways of Wynn Macau's resort tower are lined with large mirrors, photos of different types of Calla Lillies (zantedeschia aethiopica) laid atop stubbly grooved dark brown wallpaper. The photos of Calla Lillies - primarily used to symbolize elegance, purity and grace - is interesting for a number of reasons. Calla Lillies were one of the main subjects of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings, which some art history majors believe are vaginas. Knowing Steve Wynn's interest in the masters of modern painting, these Wynnginas are extremely appropriate. My wife carried a bouquet of Calla Lillies when we got hitched at The Wedding Salon at Wynn Las Vegas in 2006.
Walking down long straight hotel hallways that seemingly extend on into infinity inspires vertigo unparalleled since Willy Wonka unveiled his chocolate factory. Wynn Macau's tower hallways' sloping curve eliminates this nauseatingly uncomfortable experience and replaces it with a heightened expectation of what surprises are right round the corner.
What was around the corner, at the end of the hallway was room 737, the last room on the right.
