The Luxor Hotel and Casino Las Vegas

Friday, October 23, 2015
Luxor is one of the most known hotels in  Las Vegas because of Egyptian theme,  interior walls of a pyramid style tower and  twin ziggurat towers.  It has two hotel buildings, the Pyramid and the Tower:  the Tower is newer but i think the Pyramid is pretty cool because your window in the room is at an angle.

We stayed at Luxor for 5 nights in mid October and were really happy with everything. Luxor hotel  is located further end of the strip, but right down the street from the airport. Its always fun to walk into this hotel.  Just seeing the pyramid structure is really cool. Since Luxor is at the end of the strip, it's nice that there's a tram that connects from Luxor-Mandalay- Excalibur,  from there you can walk to New York New York or cross the strip to hop on the bus.

 
The hotel is named after the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) in Egypt
Luxor Pyramid and Sphinx: (Trivia) The ominous black pyramid of the Luxor Casino-Hotel is the largest in America: 36 stories tall. The only reason it wasn't built taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza is that it stands opposite the Las Vegas International Airport. The Sphinx is 110 feet tall, a full two stories taller than the original.



The Luxor has received recognition as being among the most recognizable hotels on the strip because of its unique design.

ROOM/AMENITIES:

This hotel is a perfect example of you get what you pay for. We wanted a decent hotel room in the strip that is inexpensive with respective room amenities. The pyramid room we stayed at has a slanted wall with a window, it has a decent size of room.  Their amenities are your basic shampoo, body wash, lotion, and soap (one of my favorite scents by the way). My husband and I are positive travelers.  Our room were clean and comfortable it had everything we needed for well, a mini fridge may have been nice too.  The pool area can be crowded on summer and they close it during winter. Luxor has quite a few restaurant with different cuisine. I was pleased with the food on site, but I preferred to visit other hotels for the all day buffet.
