Of our 6 visits to Vegas we have stayed 4 times in the Luxor so I guess you can say its our all time favourite. The second largest hotel in the US with over 4500 bedrooms, this is real value for money. The hotel has rooms in the main Pyramid, a black glass creation with a laser beam shining out of the pinnacle at night which they say can be seen in space, and two black glass towers, east and west . The atrium could hold nine 747 jets and is the biggest in the world.The hotel is nearing 12 years old and on our third visit we thought the rooms were looking tired, but on the fourth visit we were put on the 16th floor in the east tower and all the rooms and recently been refurbished and were excellent. The rooms are huge anyway but with new carpeting,drapes and furniture the whole place went back up in our expectations. A wide selection of restaurants to please everyones taste, and we have tried them all and been disappointed in none! Just love those slices of pizza up on the mezzanine floor! or the young waiter in the Isis restaurant whose job it was to offer slices of lemon or lime for your mineral water!

Unique Qualities: It really is breathtaking on first entry to this hotel. Huge obelisks and Egyptian mummies fill the Reception area and this is the only hotel with 45º slanting elevators. There are some amazing shops, with one selling real Egyptian artefacts where Michael Jackson was supposedly said to have spent 100s of 1000s of dollars.
