American casino hotel company Wynn Resorts has opened Encore Boston Harbor, a luxury resort and casino located in Everett, Massachusetts.
Encore Boston Harbor, a $2.6bn single-phase development, comprises a 210,000ft² casino; 15 dining and lounge venues; 671 guest rooms and suites; 50,000ft² of indoor and outdoor event space; an ultra-premium spa; and six-acre Harborwalk.
Designed by Wynn Design executive vice-president Roger Thomas, the gaming resort includes structural and design elements similar to properties in Las Vegas and China, but remains distinctly Bostonian with New England provisions and hospitality names.
Dining outlets range from the brand’s Las Vegas locations such as Sinatra and Red 8 to local concepts Fratelli, a casual Italian restaurant, and Memoire, a nightlife fantasy by Boston’s Big Night Entertainment Group.
The welcoming porte cochere features a 7ft polished convex mirror sculpture named Torus by David Harber centred in a parterre garden and a custom brick-paved floral entry carpet.
The gaming area is divided into two levels, with high ceilings and hand-assembled red Murano glass chandeliers.
The first floor offers more than 3,100 classic and modern slot machines, 143 table games and a casino bar located at the heart of the casino beneath a grand staircase.
The second level includes an 88-table Poker Room, flanked by secluded terraces overlooking the gaming floor.
The exclusive gaming area located off the main Casino Floor features 53 high-limit slot machines, video poker and reel games, and two private high-limit gaming rooms.
At 650ft², the Premier King and Double guest rooms are the largest hotel accommodations in New England. Signature Suites increase to 1,350ft²; 18 two-bedroom residences are 3,350ft²; and two limited-availability villas total 5,800ft².
The Encore Boston Harbor includes a spa, salon and fitness amenities across a 26,000ft² facility.
Encore Boston Harbor is also the only 24hr art destination in Boston, featuring modern, contemporary and pop-culture art.
Luxury retail esplanades house Wynn Collection, Wynn Beauty and Wynn Men’s, featuring fashion collections from top designers.
Encore Boston Harbor also includes more than 50,000ft² of modern conference space on the lobby level and 21,000ft² of seasonal outdoor space overlooking the Boston Harbor and skyline.
Event space includes 10 break-out rooms, a promenade and a 37,000ft² single span grand ballroom.
Encore Premium Harbor Shuttles transport guests from Boston to the resort.
