I stayed here over the weekend a few weeks ago! They elevator going sideways is cool! Our room had an amazing view of the strip! The hotel itself is linked to Mandalay and Excalibur! I stayed in the pyramid! It is gigantic! The service was great. The only thing I didn't like was the BUFFET!! It was eh...

The Luxor is not only one of the best hotels on the Strip, but it has also become a hotspot for LGBT events. The hotel hosts weekly LGBT pool parties, as well as a fashion show called Closet Sundays. You can also arrange same-sex commitment ceremonies at the facility's wedding chapel.Recommended for:LGBT

My sister booked a room here for her bachelorette party and got some great specials with her M Life points. There was quick valet service, good maids, and lots of shops and restaurants. I had to eat McDonald's a couple nights after clubbing but hey, when you're hungry that'll do. LAX is in this hotel; had a REALLY hard time getting in, even after we were promised a guest list, etc.
The pluses, it's an easy walk to the Excalibur via the moving walkway. Nice staff and overall, had a great stay here!

I always love walking in this hotel. I have never stayed here, but I have spent some time in the hotel...Love the karaoke station, big margaritas, and the club!

This hotel was a great stay, i went for my 21st birthday and i really enjoyed the stay here the staff was amazing the pool was big and good to relax the only downfall of this hotel that its far away from everything and its at the end of the strip so trying to walk everywhere was kind of hard.

MGM Resorts International owns a dozen huge properties in Las Vegas:
Aria, Circus Circus, Luxor, MGM Grand, Monte Carlo, Signature, Four Seasons, Bellagio, Excalibur, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, New York New York, Vdara, and the Mandarin. 13 if you count THE Hotel (really part of Mandalay) separately, like they sometimes do. Then 14 if you count CityCenter, and 15 for CityCenter Residences (timeshares) but then back to 14 because I think they don't own the Mandarin anymore.
Anyway, a huge corporation, owning half the Strip or more. Their M-Life frequent spender card is good at all the proporties to build freebee points.
5 of their properties are linked together on the south end of the Strip, and 3 are prominent: Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay. These 3 are connected by a free tram system between them. There are also connective walkways between the three.
Where Excalibue is more of a family place, and Mandalay Bay is a higher end, more sophsticated place, the Luxor can be described as a place for the youth set. They have exhibits like The Human Body on the mezzanine, and the sophmoric comedy of Carrot Top.
The nightclub, lacking creative naming capabilities, or seeking a particular Westchester district of Los Angeles crowd, is called LAX.
And in the casino, they play loud club music all over, so it is hard to hear the numbers called on the Craps table. And most of your fellow players are noobs on the gaming tables, not knowing the rules or the bets.
The rooms are average hotel rooms. The most unusual thing is of course the Pyramid Shape, the huge light beam shining into the dark nigth from the top of it, and the diagonally moving elevators. It is a clever idea, until you get inside one drunk and try to stand upright as it moves sort of sideways.
The Egyption themed decor great outside with the Sphinx and Obelisk, but indoors it is drab, like being inside a dustry tomb in some places (like the buffet room). The pool has a huge waterfall contraption in the middle, but you can't use it for a slide, just a small waterfall.
So if this is your first time to Vegas, and if you are in the 21-29 age group, this isn't a bad choice. They offer cheap deals on rooms, and I got a special show rate of about $60, and in the past got internet deals under $100 a night even on a weekend. But no bath, only a shower in the Pyramid rooms. You are probably better off room wise, in the separate tower.

I don't know too much about the service there - my friends took care of all of that. The only thing I was to do was to show up and add fuel to the fire that was the party. The hotel itself, judging from what I recall from the party - the room was nothing special other than the fact that it could hold a dozen plus people including alcohol. ;D The inclinator things were alright. I have to admit that the place is confusing - not that I really care at that point. Not many things matter when under the influence and surrounded by a bunch of friends. After what seemed like an hour of drunk asking we finally found our way to the front. Don't ask me how, but somehow we ended up in a limo on the way to Rain. HAHAHAHA! That's good enough for me.
1 star because my friends picked it
2nd star because they didn't throw us out or have us arrested for lewd behavior
3 star because they limos out front that took lewd acting fools like ourselves

I was at this hotel shortly after it opened in the early 90's. The rooms are shaped funny because it has to accomodate the sloped outside wall. I stayed in a room with a king size bed not a suite OK. That means without getting on your knees, one cannot look out the window and there is a tendency to bang one's head on the ceiling. Ideal for short but if you are tall, not so good. Good proximity to MGM and others. Was a Very family orientated hotel when I was there.

Had a great time at the Luxor... Unfortunately the pool party was closed and that frustrated me a little but overall I had an amazing stay. The casino was fun!

Great prices, clean/spacious rooms, and a killer buffet. I love the Egyptian theme and the attractions include Chris Angel's magic/illusion show, Carrot Top's comedy show, and Thunder Down Under. Downside: it's at the end of the Strip, away from most of the Vegas action. But the Monorail's nearest station is just across the street at the MGM Grand, accessible by a 10-minute walk across the sky bridge.
