In 1985, architect Joel Bergman was killing time during a routine layover when he was handed a note from his boss, Steve Wynn. The note told Joel to change course and head to North Carolina. Immediately. When a rather weary Joel arrived at about 2 a.m., Wynn greeted him with "let me tell you about the incredible place we're going to build in Las Vegas." When the sun rose a few hours later, Wynn went off to fulfill a golf obligation. Joel went off to find a drafting supply company. Four years later, they stepped back and viewed their creation: the first mega resort ever built on the famous Las Vegas strip. Today, the 3,000+ room resort is a luxurious oasis for desert travelers. Comfortable rooms come fully equipped with all the amenities a guest would expect to find in a AAA Four-Diamond rated space. Five acres of pools, lagoons and waterfalls provide refuge for travelers seeking to escape the desert heat. Visitors can marvel at the 20,000 gallon salt-water tank, view Siegfried and Roy's famous white tigers, or play with the resident dolphins. When guests get hungry from all their relaxing and marveling, they can munch on everything from steak to frozen yogurt. Last, they can top off the night with a show or watch the explosion of the world's only desert volcano.
