With its iconic beacon shooting into the desert sky, Luxor Las Vegas is one of the most recognizable resorts in the area, and the pyramid shape makes for an interesting casino.
Some of the standard rooms are a bit dated but the price reflects that. Brown is the color of the desert, but the neutrals used throughout the room feel more blah than on-theme.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Yes, the windows in the pyramid are slanted, just like you’d expect.
Small and reflective of the era in which the casino was built.
The Luxor pyramid creates a grand atrium that greets guests and draws their eyes upward toward the iconic beam. Egyptian-themed décor keep the atmosphere fun and are a delight for children.
Four large pools, four whirlpools and 21 private cabanas are available at the Luxor’s expansive pool area.
Each summer (May to September) the Luxor’s pool hosts Temptations Sundays, the longest-running LGBT pool party in Las Vegas.
Nurture Spa and Salon offers massage and body treatments, facials, sauna, steam room and a variety of hair, nail and make-up services.
TENDER Steak & Seafood channels the American West and uses sustainable, small farm and seasonally procured ingredients. Public House channels the popular East Coast tavern and upscale American food.
Aurora channels the spirit of the northern lights (aka aurora borealis) while it serves signature martinis, mojitos and margaritas.
The Luxor is connected to its neighbors and sister properties Excalibur and Mandalay Bay via interior walkway and tram. The Las Vegas Strip is also pedestrian friendly and taxis, shuttles and ride-share services are readily available.
Neighboring property Mandalay Bay offers a variety of dining options in a more mature setting. For even more options, visit other Strip resort properties.
Any of the nearby Strip properties will have plenty of drinking options. South of you, Mandalay Bay will feel a big classier. North of you, Excalibur will feel on par with the Luxor.
WHY WE LIKE IT
While slightly dated, staying at the Luxor is family-friendly and a memorable experience due to the unique architectural and strong Egyptian theme.
