On our first trip to Las Vegas we stayed at Luxor Hotel and Casino for 5 days. The structure of this Hotel is truly amazing. It has a new highly modernized and contemporary design pretty decent rooms lining the interior walls of a pyramid style tower and contained within twin ziggurat towers. The hotel is named after the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) in Egypt. Inside and outside interior really makes u “WOW ”. The window design as slope to make you feel that you were in a Pyramid Side. The climate here is between 79-85 degrees F (F stands for freaking hot ha ha!) no doubt this area is really a desert.
Trivia: Luxor Hotel Las Vegas is designed by hotel architect Veldon Simpson and interior designer Charles Silverman, the Luxor has received recognition as being among the most recognizable hotels on the strip because of its unique design. The main portion of the hotel is a 365-foot (111 m)-high, 30-story pyramid encased in 11 acres of dark bronze glass.The guest rooms are situated on the outer walls of the pyramid and are reached by riding in "inclinators" that travel along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. The hotel also features a 29 million cubic feet (820,000 m³) atrium, which was the largest open atrium in the world when it was built in 1993.The hotel is marked by a 140-foot (43 m)-high obelisk and a 110-foot (34 m)-tall re-creation of the Great Sphinx of Giza. The tip of the pyramid contains a fixed-position spotlight that points directly upward and is claimed to be the brightest beam in the world at over 42.3 billion candle power. (by:wikipedia)
