The Luxor Hotel is located towards the end of the strip in Las Vegas. It is just opposite the Excalibur hotel, and is of a very interesting design. The Luxor Hotel is shaped like a pyramid, with a tall, bright light on the top. The entire hotel has been decorated to an Egyptian theme, making it an incredible sight both inside and out.
As you enter the hotel you will be able to see the casino floor straight away, then you can head up to your hotel room, which is also decorated in an Egyptian style. The decoration is consistent throughout the entire hotel – even down to the Egyptian canal running through the building.
Rooms at the Luxor Hotel aren’t cheap but there are sometimes deals that can be had during midweek. The hotel also has restaurants and night clubs that people can spend their money on. The casino areas are well lit and they feel open allowing easy movement without feeling closed in.
A stay at the Luxor Hotel will be a comfortable and relaxing experience. The best time to visit, if you want to look around the rest of Vegas, is during either the spring or the fall months. During the summer, the temperatures get quite hot in Las Vegas – reaching over 100 degrees. In the Winter, however, it can sometimes snow, which makes the strip even prettier.
If people are staying at the Luxor Hotel but want to see a show somewhere, there are two ways to accomplish this. Walking is pretty easy if people are going over to the MGM. Other hotels may be a little farther and if walking is too hard, taxis can get people to wherever they need to go to.
A lot of people walk everywhere in Las Vegas – the strip is small enough that you can do this, but, if you dislike crowds, you may find the sidewalks too busy for your tastes, and may wish to find an alternative way to get around.
For dining, you could explore the strip, or, if you prefer, take advantage of the buffet meals which are offered at the Luxor Hotel.
The food served at the buffets is good, but not as good as the fare on offer at the more upscale restaurants in Vegas. It is worth experiencing a meal at one of the more upmarket restaurants at least once, but for the rest of your trip you will likely be happy with the buffet.

Room comfort and quality
Value for money
The entire hotel has been decorated to an Egyptian theme, making it an incredible sight both inside and out. It offers one of the best bargains on the Strip, even though it’s slightly farther away from the action. Luxor won’t win any awards for its facilities. The amenities are good, the shows are all right and the dining choices are limited.
