If you travel to Orlando, FL, you can easily find yourself amidst a mix of varying cultures if you brave high ticket prices and screaming children. The people behind the kid friendly Disneyland threw together a slew of cultures to create a slightly more mature space for adults to enjoy. Not to be outdone by some oversized playground, the City of Las Vegas worked to mix numerous cultures within its stockpile of casinos. Adding to this Nevada-based mature Epcot is the great pyramid that houses the Luxor Hotel and Casino. Adorned in decor and wall art that transport it’s guests to ancient Egypt, the Luxor finds itself at the top of Sin City’s top ten resorts.
It’s not everyday that the average Joe gets to brag about his trip to Egypt, but a stay at the Luxor should be close enough. Within the walls of this overly shiny pyramid are a selection of comfortable and stylish rooms for guests to call home for a short period of time. The choice of room can be selected from a list of six different styles. The Pyramid, Tower, and Player deluxe rooms are fairly basic in both size and style. Don’t take basic to mean “bland”, though, as a mix of contemporary furniture and comfortable, plush furniture put these rooms a step above those at any normal hotel. The Pyramid and Tower Luxury suites near double the size of the deluxe rooms, adding an on-suite living room and oversized bathrooms. Tower Luxury suites also come with a wet bar, breakfast nook, and an on-suite spa. Close to tripling the size of the smallest room is the Tower Premier Suite, which includes all previously mentioned amenities with floor-to-ceiling windows offering exquisite views of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Luxor’s volley of entertainment is an impressive mix of Criss Angel’s Believe by Cirque du Soleil, live performances by Carrot Top, Menopause the Musical, and the erotic stage show Fantasy. Furthermore, guests can partake in self-guided tours through two world renown, limited run exhibits – Bodies and Titanic. The BODIES Exhibition delves deep into the physical makings of the human body utilizing real specimens, while Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition is a thought provoking walk through the last surviving pieces of the ill-fated Titanic. Night-lifers will find enjoyment in Luxor’s premier nightclubs, LAX and Cathouse.
Starve is one thing you won’t find yourself doing during your stay at Luxor. Gourmet steaks and fresh seafood grace the menu of TENDER, while T&T offers an exquisite menu of Mexican food. Rice & Company can whet that appetite for sushi and chinese food and the Backstage Deli is the perfect place to get a bit of that New York feel. The on-site buffet, MORE, is sure to please anybody with a growing appetite.
Though there is definitely a contemporary look to the Luxor Hotel and Resort, subtle touches throughout the establishment give off that Egyptian feel, adding to the elegance of an already impressive location. Despite being on the far west end of the Strip, guests of Luxor will be thoroughly entertained.
