    The Luxor closed all of the wonderful stores that offered authentic Egyptian trinkets and papyrus paper. The hotel looks "retro" now with all Egyptian things being replaced by racy photos of women, timeshare vultures, a pearl in the shell store, a young trendy women’s clothes store, and a food court that has only a few vendors. If you want authentic Egyptian merchandise, go to the Tropicana Hotel’s shopping kiosks. There are two stands with lots of things to look at. What is the Luxor good for…the “Body” and “Titanic” exhibits. Want Krispy Kreme’s? That place is gone too. This hotel was revamped AGAIN to bring in the twenty-something crowd, hopefully, they have a lot of money to spend! Stick to the Venetian or Caesar’s Palace for true luxury as the Luxor will disappoint. If you have kids, find another venue unless you plan on hiding their eyes on the way to the Titanic and Body exhibits.

    The most distinctive-looking casino on the strip's skyline, and that's saying something. The light coming out the top (the "Sky Beam") is a nice guide when you get disoriented while walking the strip at night. (They claim it's visible from outerspace, which I guess could be useful for some.) The inside is a little less impressive, in my opinion, but it's still worth visiting. Per another review on here, the railings on the upper-level hallways are alarmingly short. How no one's ever tripped over themselves and over the edge on a drunken, early-morning walk back to his room is beyond me.

    One of my favorites.  It's the pyramid hotel, so if you're on one of the higher floors the views of the casino floor are pretty cool.  It's a little erie that the railings on each floor are only a few feet high though; it's a long fall onto the slot machines.  The rooms are nice, the slanted windows make for a different sort of layout.  The elevator - actually called an inclinator - goes up on a slant, and if you're on one of the higher floors you have to change elevators.

    I've stayed at Luxor 4 times but not since they closed their best restaurants and repositioned the hotel to appeal to a younger audience.There are better choices among mid-priced Strip hotels

    Our last visit was in Jan 09. My wife and I go to Las Vegas at least once a year. We usually stay at the Luxor for overall value. The Casino is layed out nicely, with plenty of action, what ever kind you are looking for. We ate dinner at The Cat House our first night there. It was very enjoyable and delicious. The rest of the meals were at the buffet and at the coffe shop. My wife was gambling quite a bit and was winning so our meals and last night was comped. I was gambling also but not winning, so I stoped..I like the location of this property. Mandalay Bay is next door which we like also, and Excalibur. If you are interested in the action around Ceasars then Luxor is a bit of a trip. I would recomend a property in the middle of the strip then. MGM Grand, New York New York, Tropican, and Monte Carlo are all very easy to walk to. We are already planning our next trip thanks to the comp we recieved for 2 night stay.

    We've stayed at the Luxor about 15 times over the last eight years. The Bad: The base rooms in the Pyramid section are rather noisy (all the noise from the attraction level filters up the pyramid). The cocktail waitresses on the casino level could use some lessons on being polite (example: being refused a drink while watching my wife play slots - she said I also had to be playing to get a drink...very presumptuous on her part as I has already lost $200). The Luxor Steakhouse has very poor service ? we will not be going back there after getting such poor service. Reserved rooms are not always what you requested ? a couple visits our rooms were not what we reserved, but in Luxor?s defense they swapped us over to the correct room the next day. In some respect it seems like the staff at the Luxor has become somewhat jaded over the years as I have noticed a decline in hospitality and service (and not just at the Luxor I will add). The Good: The Tower section, although away from all ... Read more

    Please, please, please be careful when leaving your vehicle with Luxor Valet. I dropped my vehicle off with the Valet guy. He asked me if I'm going to be out quick and if I want him to park my vehicle nearby. I said yes, thinking what a great idea and that was very nice of him. When I got my vehicle back a half hour later, there was a lot of damage to the passenger side quarter panel. I ask the Valet guy what happen to my car and he said he doesn't know but he will have the security guard do a report and they would be able to figure out what happen with video cameras. The security guard took some pictures of the car and had me fill out a report. He said that they would have to investigate this claim and pull all the videos. He then gave me a phone number to call their Risk Management 36 hours later. Now come to the good part, when I talk to Risk Management adjuster from Luxor, she asks me to go and get an estimate and fax it to her. After looking at the estimate which cost $19... Read more

    Five of us went to Vegas for a friend's bday. From day 1 things went wrong- they didn't have our rooms ready (eventhough it was past check in time) and then they sent us to smoking rooms, the front desk staff was beyond rude and never apologized or even acknowedged their screw up, they lost our luggage when our room was finally ready, the food was barely ok, and the wait staff at the bars were extremely slow. Spend a few extra dollars and stay some place where you aren't treated like trash from the moment you walk in the door. We had a blast when we weren't at our hotel...and so we spent our money elsewhere. And from the looks of others staying we weren't alone. This final story says it all--When we checked out we saw a bride trying to talk to the front desk about how they also screwed up her room and had treated her wedding guests poorly....she was on the verge of tears. DON'T STAY THERE!

    We have stayed at the Luxor once a year nearly since it opened, and it has fallen far from the glorious adult theme park resort hotel that Veldon Simpson first designed. Especially since the MGM Grand corporation has bought the property, they've been systematically ripping out most of the Egyptian-themed decor. The carpets and mattresses in the pyramid have needed replacing for years, and yet the corporation is too busy putting in new ultrabars and restaurants masquerading as whorehouses, instead. Everything seems to be desperately tailored to try and attract the young male demographic, but it's all turning into a giant generic Vegas barn. Thank heavens for the attentive Casino Slot Hosts, who are virtually the only thing left worth coming back for.

    I booked a room at the Luxor this weekend after reading the mostly positive reviews here, and am very happy I did. Most of the hotels on the strip are overrun with children and babies and extremely overwhelming, not the Luxor. It's sleek, relaxing, modern, and the Egyptian theme is not as overwhelming as you might think. Overall, very pleased!!

    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Luxor on our very first trip to Vegas together in 2006. I had heard mixed experiences about the hotel/casino so I decided to try it out for myself. The hotel/casino is amazing! We didn't have to wait long to check in and we were early!!! We were offered to be upgraded to a tower room which showed great customer service. We spent a total of three nights here and WE LOVED IT!!! The food was great, the pool was awesome. We were not too thrilled about Club RA, but we did get in for free. Other than that everything else was more than great! I would definitely return back here the next time we are in Vegas and I have recommended to all my friends and family! Staying at the Luxor was a great experience!!!!!

    I've stayed many hotels in Vegas, places like Mandalay Bay, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, Orleans, Hard Rock, MGM and Rio, but the Luxor is by far my favorite. I really don't why, I guess many would think its kind of corny decor and over done, but I like the feel of it. Love the casino and they way it's set up and this place has some great places to eat. Luxor steak house was incredible, They have a deli, a pizza place, Fusia (asian) and in between Mandalay Bay and Luxor is the best burger joint in Vegas called the Burger bar. The Spa suite is the way to go, your in the pyramid, with an awsome view in a nice big spa tub with some wine and your woman...doesn't get any better than that.

    We had specified a non smoking room and were placed in the west tower (dump) in a smoking room that smelled so bad and had peeling wallpaper and burned my eyes from the smokers who were there before me. We waited in line for everything. The food sucked and the service sucked. Next time we will be staying at the Venetian, Mandallay Bay, Bellagio or in a better place. If you like a dumpy old smokey hotel with bad service than the Luxor is for you.

    I must admit... I just love the whole Egyptian theme to this hotel and I have always loved the design of everything here. This is one of my favorite places to stay, not because it is the nicest on the Strip, but because it is really nice and still a moderately priced stay. The rooms are probably about middle-of-the-road and are comfortable and worth it. The staff isn't really overly friendly or rude either. I do love the buffet here, especially for breakfast.

    We have stayed at the Luxor twice. We were first here two years ago and the Luxor was a great place to stay. The first time we stayed in a tower room. That room was clean and modern-very nice. However, the second time we stayed here the room was in the original part of the hotel, the Pyramid. This room was in need of some serious updating. The age of this hotel was evident in all of its decor. The pool was the most modern amenity. The novelty of the whole pyramid thing was neat. Hotel staff was not especially friendly and helpful. One great thing was the entertainment in the Nefertti Lounge. At the time we were there David " The Sax Man" Brown was playing there. This two man group was something special and we enjoyed their music tremendously. It appears since the MGM group bought the Luxor that the changes made have caused prices to increase and service to go downhill.

    My stays at the Luxor have been wonderful! As with any Vegas Strip hotel, you can pretty much expect all the grandiose visuals and lavishness, but the Luxor also has the Nefretiti Lounge that is a more relaxed atmosphere with some great music. The casino is on par with the rest. The interior is what makes a Luxor stay a must.

    So the outside is really neat and inside the casino and lobby area is a novelty if you're never seen it. Otherwise it is pretty much just like any other average place out there to stay. It is getting to be one of the older joints out there and I guess they are doing some renovations. So if you get a free room outta them, take otherwise, stop, look, listen, and rubberneck - then leave.

    Overall average. I was here at the beginning of October for a bachelor party. The rooms were in need of some serious updating. The age of this hotel is evident in all of its decor. The pool was the most modern amenity. The novelty of the whole pyramid thing was neat and yeah, those elevators are zany. It was nice to catch the neighboring hotels through the tunnel, though. Ate at the buffet one day and it was massive but nothing special. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The in-house nightclub, RA, was ?under renovations?. Funny but the website mentioned nothing about being closed. That?s the frustrating thing about business who can?t update the most dynamic information source available, the World Wide Web! At the time I wrote this review, the website still says nothing about being under renovations or closed. Maybe it?s no longer being renovated. Who knows? We weren?t expecting much from RA since it?s old news but we were hoping to possibly get VIP or ?no line? and party in our own... Read more

    This is a great place if you like pyramids. The rooms are really neat and the elevators are crazy. I like the fact that you could walk to 3 hotels without going outside.

    We love to gamble and eat here however the rooms leave something to be desired. In most hotels, the elevator is close to the gaming floor but not here. You must walk by the meeting rooms to arrive. Also the rooms are on the small level, I think the pyramid design has something to do with it.

    If you travel into Las Vegas at night, the beacon of light from the top of the pyramid lets you know that you have arrived! It practically guides you into the city The Luxor resembles the most lavish idea of a house; a house of black diamonds, topped off with a chimney of white diamonds. The slopes of the pyramid allows for an unique experience riding the elevators on a thirty-nine degree angle, to an ancient pyramid in Egypt. This is the best first place to stay if you want an experience within an experience.

    My friend got a suite on his birthday for a small group party. The room was nice and HUGH! It's located on the very top of the Pyramid. The glass window was angled and tint, so we could hardly see the view when it got dark and since that it's located on the south trip, we could only see not-so-attractive hotels below and desert far ahead. It's a very quiet hotel. The hotel is so hugh that it's very far to walk everywhere; to parking lot, to the pool.

    The beds were not very comfortable and the lighting was terrible. But, the location was nice. There's a food court in the hotel which is great for late-night snacking and breakfast. Also, the tram to Mandalay and Excalibur was convenient.

    Mon Oct 30 2006

    This isn't a 5-star experience, but it's pretty good for the price. The rooms are a little shabby and are definitely in need of better lighting. However, there are reasonably priced food options in the food court, even late; a nice pool/jacuzzi area with plenty of lounge chairs and towels; and, a convenient tram to Excalibur and Mandalay. If you're looking for a basic launching pad to experience and enjoy Vegas, the Luxor fits the bill.

    Only rant is the incessant interuptions by the staff trying to "give" you "free shows" etc. Every time we left the hotel or returned, someone stopped us. Irritating, at least to me. Otherwise, loved the place!

    In Short This Luxor's unique 30-story, black-glass pyramid design has made it one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world. It combines value with upscale surroundings, attracting plenty of families and couples. A life-size replica of the Great Temple of Ramses II is prominently featured inside the awe-inspiring atrium, which at 29 million cubic feet is one of the largest in the world. The hotel's 4,408 well-appointed rooms are luxurious with Egyptian decor.

    This is the second year in a row that myself and friends have stayed in the Luxor Pyramid room, and if we hadn't liked it the first time, we wouldn't have come back to stay there again! Last year from the moment we checked in there was an odd smell in our room, so we called the front desk, and they offered to change our room right away, no attitudes or questions about it. This year we had a wonderful room, and we received a mini fridge free of charge for our entire stay. If you're looking for a good place to eat, a nice casual place is La Salsa, delicious mexican food, and excellent margaritas. For a more sophisticated place, try Fusia located on the walkway to Mandalay Bay, it is absolutely delicious, probably the best meal I had in Vegas, we ate there 2 times in 1 week. Our waiter was Jimmy, he was fantastic, highly recommended. The pool area is clean, and the staff are friendly. The only suggestion is perhaps having an adults only pool (there are 4 pools) since myself and friends di... Read more

    We stayed 3 nights in Aug 2006, we were continuously bothered by marketers in the lobby who wanted us to look at Condos to get a discounted show ticket. The Pyramid cafe was closed for a re-model and the only place to get Breakfast was not that great. The West Tower rooms have no coffee pots at all, or view, they want everyone to go down to Starbucks or McDonald;s at the rise of dawn. Not even a place to get ice in the hall.. The pool closes at 8pm, I thought this was Las vegas.....They should offer more being at the other end of the strip. And most all of the casinos had no waitresses serving drinks unless you were a high roller.

    Very average and impersonal. Half of the pools, which are nothing special to begin with, were closed during spring break! Got stuck in the West Tower with no view. Loved the valet service, though.

    This is the hotel I always stay at when in Vegas. I love the rooms within the Pyramid, the staff is friendly, and I'm always lucky at the crap tables. Not to mention The Luxor Steakhouse has the best Bone in Rib-Eye!!! This place is awesome!
