"Wynn Palace is arguably the most beautiful hotel in the world, which is a wonderful thing to be able to say,” said Steve Wynn. “But it is not in London, Paris, New York or Rome. It is in Cotai, in Macau, and sits here for all the world to come and see. It’s our gift to the community, to the public. It will be here forever and it’s perhaps unlikely we’ll see a place of this scope and artfulness in our lifetimes again."
