Conde Nast Traveler readers choose Wynn as best Las Vegas hotel, and Waldorf Astoria as L.A.’s No. 1
Conde Nast Travelers Readers’ Choice Awards 2017 selected Wynn and sister site Encore as the best pair of hotels in Las Vegas. In L.A., the newly opened Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills took the No. 1 spot.
More than 300,000 readers responded to the magazine’s 30th survey in categories such as best hotels worldwide, best cities in to visit, best cruise lines, best airlines and more.
In choosing Wynn and Encore, the magazine’s website said: “From the Venetian-glass mosaic floors to white sycamore furnishings, everything about the hotel oozes luxury,” the magazine’s website says.
These hotels are small, by Vegas standards. Wynn has about 2,700 rooms and suites, and Encore has more than 2,000 suites.
The survey released Tuesday also noted that while Las Vegas “was struck by a horrible tragedy this fall, it showed—and will continue to show—a remarkable knack for resilience and reinvention.” A gunman killed 58 people Oct. 1 after shooting into crowds at Route 91 Festival from a room at the Mandalay Bay.
Here are other hotels that ranked in the top 12.

4. The Venetian
10. Mandalay Bay

3. Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood
