The Luxor, located at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip, makes its presence known throughout the valley not only by shining the world’s strongest beam of light into the sky, but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned entertainment, fascinating attractions and comfortable accommodations. It has shed much of its ancient Egyptian image and moved into this modern era with a more adult-oriented theme as well as ultra chic bars and lounges.
A present-day wonder, this 30-story pyramid contains many amenities. Spacious rooms surround the world’s largest atrium, which boasts shopping, dining and plenty of good entertainment. The casino, at 120,000 square feet, is one of the city’s biggest, offering an array of the latest slot and video poker machines, table games, a race and sports book and the Bruce Buffer Poker Room.
The smaller, more seductive Savile Row is situated next to it. A 2,000-square-foot haven, Savile Row is reminiscent of the street by the same name in London. Flight is the perfect spot for club goers to grab a few drinks before buckling their seatbelts for takeoff. At Liquidity, the casino’s water-themed center bar, guests will appreciate the sleek, high-tech design. Other nightlife options include the hip lobby bar Aurora.
Dining choices range from the around-the-world selections of More the Buffet to the rocking T&T (Tacos & Tequila) that features the innovative cuisine of celebrity chef Richard Sandoval. For a wide selection of breakfast and lunch fare, step into the Pyramid Café and explore its many comfort food options. Tender Steak & Seafood offers the best in surf and turf as well. The stylish American-style pub, Public House, is a popular favorite.
During the summer months, guests can be spotted soaking up the sun at the expansive five-acre pool deck through windows in the walkway that connects the two-story parking garage to the hotel. Located in the pool area, Nurture Spa & Salon lives up to its name, offering a steam bath, whirlpool and sauna, along with an array of facials and body treatments.
On the atrium-level, entertainment abounds. Enjoy the prop comedian Carrot Top and “Fantasy,” a sexy adult show featuring powerhouse vocals from Lorena Peril along with a bevy of gorgeous topless dancers. And the ladies of “Fantasy” aren’t the only bodies drawing crowds at the Luxor. “Bodies…The Exhibition” features 21 whole-body specimens in various poses, preserved using a method known as polymer preservation.
Cirque du Soleil has also brought its own brand of magic to the Luxor in conjunction with “Mindfreak” magician Criss Angel. In “Criss Angel MINDFREAK LIVE!,” you’ll be mesmerized by a surreal world where it’s often difficult to tell what’s real from what’s imaginary.
Indoor walkways make it easy to visit the Luxor’s surrounding hotels, leading south through The Shoppes at Mandalay Place to the Mandalay Bay and north to the Excalibur. A free tram also links the three properties.
Please note all of the hotel rooms are non-smoking. There is a $300 cleaning fee for guests who smoke in any of the rooms.
Self-parking fees are: Free for less than one hour; $5 for 1 to 2 hours, $8 for 2 to 4 hours, $10 for 4 to 24 hours. Valet fees: $10 for 0 to 4 hours; $15 for 4 to 24 hours.
