We stayed at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in early March of 2013. This is the first time we have ever been to Vegas so choosing a hotel was a great chore. After researching for months we adventually choose the Luxor because it had all of the amenities and shows that we were seeking.
We booked our vacation through Vegas.com and were not disapointed with this website. It offered everything that you needed to book a Vegas vacation at the lowest price we could find. Also, this website has so much information for the Vegas virgin.
Now on to the hotel... this is a very large hotel and casino. It is easy to get lost here. The bonus is that it is connected to both the Mandaly Bay and the Excalibur. You do not even have to go outdoors if you wish to only visity these three hotels.
There are three main areas of the Luxor hotel. The Pyramid, East Tower and West Tower. We origionally booked a standard King Pyramid room at a very good rate. When we arrived at the hotel it was later in the day and we were given an upgrade to a standard Tower room. When I say standard, I mean standard. You can compare this type of room to a Holiday Inn with better decoration and maybe a more comfortable bed. I am sure it does not hold the same standard as lets say the Bellagio or even Treasure Island.
In the room was a bathroom with a small shower and a seperate soaking tub. There were no vents in the bathroom. In the bedroom area was a very comfortable king sized bed, two chairs, small table, desk, and a rather large tv/closet armoire. There is no coffee maker, mini fridge or any other luxury that you might expect. There is an alarm clock, an iron, and a blow dryer. Thats about it. There was maid service daily and staff was very pleasant and helpful. Housekeeping did not delay to bring extra towels, blankets, etc.
The location of the Luxor is not the best in Vegas. It is all the way at the end of the strip. Be prepared for a LOT of walking if you want to sight see. The closest monorail is at the MGM for the Vegas strip. It is quite a walk to just there. I am sure there are other transportation options though. Just ask the helpful people at the front desk. If you are walking though be prepared for lots of homeless persons asking for money and men standing on the sidewalks passing out cards for prostitutes (maybe thats your thing though... no judgement here.)
The shows that are offered at the Luxor are outstanding. We saw Chris Angel and Carrot Top. These are shows not to miss if you come to Vegas. The hotel also offers Fantasy, Menopause the Musical, Titanic and Bodies exibit.
The food here ath the Luxor was just OK. Our favorite was T&T. Very good Mexican food with a beautiful presentation. The Watermelon Margarita was the best I have ever had.
The casino was very large. Easy to get lost in. Staff very helpful and friendly. The only thing that would not bring me back here was the Timeshare people who basically harass you every time you walked past them. These people offer you discount show tickets (they are not free) if you attend a 120 minute presentation. Please, I was almost trapped, but I then came to my senses. These people want to trap you and put you on a bus that goes who knows where and trap you until you agree to buy a timeshare. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
Overall, this was a great place to stay. If you are looking for luxury then the Luxor is not for you.
