English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. excellent

    Fine (Latin finis, end) denotes that which has been brought to a full end, finished. From this root-sense many derived meanings branch out, causing words quite remote from each other to be alike synonyms of fine. That which is truly finished, brought to an ideal end, is excellent of its kind, and beautiful, if a thing that admits of beauty; as, a fine house, fine trees, a fine woman, a fine morning; if a thing that admits of the removal of impurities, it is not finished till these are removed, and hence fine signifies clarified, clear, pure, refined; as, fine gold. That which is finished is apt to be polished, smooth to the touch, minutely exact in outline; hence fine comes to be a synonym for all words like dainty, delicate, exquisite; as, fine manners, a fine touch, fine perceptions. As that which is delicate is apt to be small, by an easy extension of meaning fine becomes a synonym for slender, slight, minute, comminuted; as, a fine thread, fine sand; or for filmy, tenuous, thin; as, a fine lace, fine wire; and as a thin edge is keen, sharp, fine becomes also a synonym for these words; as, a fine point, a fine edge. Compare BEAUTIFUL; MINUTE.

    Synonyms:
    beautiful, clarified, clear, comminuted, dainty, delicate, elegant, exquisite, fine, gauzy, handsome, keen, minute, nice, polished, pure, refined, sensitive, sharp, slender, slight, small, smooth, splendid, subtile, subtle, tenuous, thin

    Antonyms:
    big, blunt, clumsy, coarse, great, heavy, huge, immense, large, rude, stout, thick

    Nick McCabe said. The city’s hotels, meanwhile, are making big moves to accommodate the increasing numbers of luxury consumers. Last month, Aria introduced a luxury collection called The Tower Suites. Guests travel to and from the airport in limousines, they’re greeted at curbside and there is a dedicated entrance and private VIP lounge for speedy check-in. As soon as guests book a stay, the Tower Suites concierge reaches out to book dinner reservations and arrange show tickets. 5 best shows to see in Las Vegas This fall, Encore at the Wynn completed a design refresh, updating all suites to include push-button electronic amenities. It added custom linens and floor coverings and commissioned an amenities collection from top-of-the-line cosmetics and fragrance company Molton Brown. Meanwhile, Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a $ 75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which will be renamed the Julius Tower next month. While the behemoth resorts expand their luxury offerings, smaller boutique properties that offer a more intimate upscale experience have been opening. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace debuted in 2013, and Delano Las Vegas and Delano Las Vegas opened last year. One of the smallest hotels, the Parisian-themed The Cromwell, opened last year with only 188 rooms, all with hardwood floors, glamorous boudoir lighting and chaise lounges. Guests are invited to a Moet Chandon toast with the general manager on Friday and Saturday nights. Ultra luxury packages at new Drai’s offer fireworks and private jets But Vegas ’ biggest draw might be its endless bounty of celebrity chef-driven restaurants.

Two popular restaurants from other cities have just opened outposts in Delano Las Vegas. In October, the New York City hot spot Carbone( whose fans include Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian) opened at Aria. Just like New York, Delano Las Vegas is Delano Las Vegas. We try to differentiate ourselves by not only serving excellent food but by creating a unique experience.
