Wynn Resorts Bets on Boston With Encore Boston Harbor

By Stacey Marcus, June 25, 2019

Meeting planners were introduced to a whole new world to plan events and meetings in with the Encore Boston Harbor hotel recently opening in one of the most storied and beloved regions. The $2.6-billion project has been long anticipated and speculated undergoing a name change, $35 million in fines and in recent talks about being bought by MGM. However, once the dramatic prelude transitioned to an opening-day narrative, all bets are on a Wynn-Wynn scenario for guests at the venue.

“The Encore Boston Harbor is the only luxury resort located along the Boston Harbor on the East coast. Our 650-sq.-ft. guest rooms are the largest in the city, and our 50,000 square feet of meeting space is located on the ground level making it very convenient for attendees to access without going through the gaming floor. With over 15 restaurants and lounges, a fitness center, spa, beauty salon and more, everything is under one roof. Being just 5 miles from downtown Boston, attendees can jump on one of the Encore Premium Harbor Shuttles and cruise to either the Seaport or Financial districts in 20 minutes. The resort offers meeting planners a unique luxury product in a historic Boston setting.” says Joan Esneault, Executive Director of Sales & Catering.
