Have to disagree, having stayed in both the Tower and Pyramid. I prefer the Pyramid, where the action is. The Tower is a much further walk, much quieter, and has a regular hotel feel. Blah. Staying in the Pyramid is totally different. Walking through the halls you can hear the jangling of the slot machines below (but the door to your room should drown out that noise). You know you're in Vegas! The rooms are also slightly smaller if a bit nicer (IMO) because of the slanted windows. Kinda fun.

The only caveat is you must ask for a room on a higher floor (say, 10 and above), and away from the Ra Nightclub as the bass from the music gets filtered to some of the hotels on the lower floors.

Weather will be hot, hot, hot. But, most of the Luxor rooms now offer 2 free passes to the spa so you can go soak in there for free instead of being by the (crowded) pool.

We stayed at the Luxor last year and really enjoyed it. The casino is huge, the whole place completely OTT, but magnificant. There are lots of pools, entertainment and the service throughout is excellent.

The only downside is the location - at the very top of The strip, but don't let it put you off.

We chose a tower room as they are slightly bigger - the pyramid rooms have a sloping wall which takes away some of the space. The tower rooms also have a bath and shower (separate) as opposed to the pyramid rooms only having a shower.

All the rooms are well appointed and quite plush, so I don't think you will be disappointed either way.

We too went in June and to say it was hot is an understatement. It never went below 106 degrees, take plenty of water with you when you take a walk. You tire very quickly.

Have fun

I had friends that stayed here and preferred the tower rooms. Looking at these posts, I think that's a personal preference whether you want a more unique looking room that could be loud but is convenient to casino, or a more standard room that is larger and quieter.

I visited Luxor last year and was really turned off by the shopping areas below the casino level. It was very claustrophobic and I did feel as if I was buried in King Tut's tomb. They did have a nice pool area though and easy access to Mandalay Bay.

My husband and I stayed at the Luxor last June and we had a ball. We preferred staying in the Tower room because it was more spacious and it had both a shower and a bathtub. The hotel is connected by walkway to the Excalibur and Mandalay Bay. You don't even have to walk the streets to get to either hotel. This is great especially in June. The weather in June is HOT HOT HOT, totally, totally hot. I burned so bad out there. I even wore sunscreen and still got toasted. It was like someone took an iron to my skin. Be careful. Take a sunscreen #30 or more. My husband and I walked so much while there, make sure you bring comfortable shoes or sneakers. Make sure you walk in out of some stores while there so you can cool off. Take in a movie or two or go out when the sun goes down and then sleep in the day.

Either way, enjoy yourself

I agree with most of the comments above re. the hotel, but I notice several references to the pools. A word of caution. When we were there, none of the pools was deeper than 3 or 4 feet. This, in my opinion, qualifies only as a wading pool. You will not be able to stand up to your shoulders in water, if that's what you're hoping for, so "cooling off" in the pool brings with it the risk of sunburn (as stated above).
