    We are staying at the Luxor for the first time.
    Can you tell me about the rooms. Even though I hear the tower rooms are nicer. I am hoping to get a pyramid room. I have always wanted to stay in one. Just to say I did I guess.
    I'm also interested in the blackjack there. Any good? Or is it crappy like all the other strip properties bj?
    This is our first time on the south end of the strip.
    Any must do or sees in the Luxor?

    Our Pyramid room was great when we stayed in September. None of the leaky plumbing or other complaints people have listed here.

    Do call the front desk if you have any concerns and they will address them promptly.

    I stayed in a tower room last year it was really nice! I was pleasantly surprised. The decor is a little ugly, but the room was clean and seemed updated enough to me. Those are a little far away from the action, but not so far that it was super inconvenient.

    Been a few years since I stayed in the Pyramid, but they are pretty old... I guess it's all a matter of preference, some people don't really have an issue with the older stuff, or have a higher tolerance. They do have crummy cheap beds, and no bathtub. It's also weird because the windows are slanted you can't really see much out of them.

    I've never stayed at an MGM property, high or low end, and had an issue with it being dirty or in disrepair, personally. Even Excalibur, always clean.

    Luxor's best feature is being attached to Mandalay Bay, because it's awesome lots of great dining, shopping and gambling over there... I really enjoyed my meal at Tender Steakhouse, delicious, good prices, for 2 of us, no alcohol it was only around $150. Also it's convenient having the food court I find for an easy breakfast. I did the Titanic exhibit, that was cool, if you can get a discount it's worth doing. Also Carrot Top , by far one of the best shows in Vegas, definitely check him out! Also, not many rooms have strip views there, so I wouldn't go looking for one.

    We stayed in a players suite in the tower but I agree that the pyramid might be less pleasing. Don't get me wrong we had a blast when there but the whole place needs some attention. Nothing major. They have a pyramid room with a hot tub right next to the window. Check em out. They always looked cool to me.

    As far as the BJ we didn't play but the table areas were always lively. I personally really liked the casino. My wife did really well on a popcorn slot next to one of the entrances.

    Don't know if its still there but they had a place were you could get HUGE margaritas :licklips:. My wife got one. Had to be 2 feet tall. She got smashed :wink2: . I even saw someone in the casino with one about 3-4 feet that came with a shoulder sling.

    Its an older hotel but you said you wanted to do it once. Bottom line I bet you will still have lots of fun, its Vegas. :beer:

    The rooms in the pyramid are OK, just that the tower rooms are more recently renovated and seem brighter/have better lighting.

    The tower rooms will also seem to have more space: because the pyramid room has that sloped wall (which you'll likely bang your head on, everybody does) it does reduce walking space for a portion of the room for taller people.

    Otherwise they are just rooms. There is nothing across the hallway as thats the overlook to the casino and atrium below... so you can look all the way down if you want. There is an inclinator (elevator) in each corner.. because its going up on a slope it does feel a little bit of a rough ride (its going up on a track so its a bit ka-chunka ka-chunka ka-chunka as you go up).

    Well its kind of the same as other strip properties: to offer low limits the low limit tables don't have very favorable rules, but there are higher limit tables with better rules.

    There is lots to see: they have a good pool, a few attractions, Mandalay Bay and Excalibur are connected to Luxor (by walkways or by shuttle), there is an MGM outlet store in the walkway to Excalibur (discounted MGM property merchandise), lots of dining options, expanded and updated food court, NYNY, MGM Grand and Tropicana are all pretty closeby.

    If you plan to see a few attractions they have a discount pass you can buy at the Luxor box office: its $57 and you can use it for three different attractions: Bodies, Titanic, SCORE!, Shark Reef, CSI Exhibit, NYNY Roller Coaster and Sigfried and Roy Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat.

    You will probably get a coupon book when you check and that will have a bunch of discounts and coupons for stuff at Luxor, Excalibur and Mandalay Bay (2-for-1 show tickets, discount drinks, dining coupons, store discounts, etc).

    And if you need stuff for the room (beer, water, pop, junk food, cigarettes, etc) there is an AM/PM Arco gas station right across the street or if you cross the street and head south a little bit there is a liquor store and another convenience store in front of Mandalay Bay (and a couple more blocks south you can walk to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign).

    Thanks everyone. Its been a couple of years since I have been to Luxor. I will have to do a search on it. We are using MyVegas points for the room. I wanted Aria or Mirage. Instead I decided on Luxor to surprise my husband. When the Luxor was new he always said 1 day he'd like to stay there. Now he will get his wish. Heck he'd sleep in a cardboard box as long as it was in LV.

    Is it easy to get in & out of valet there? We will have a car & I know we would rather valet than self park.
    Thanks everyone for your input.

    I've stayed in the pyramid twice and once in the tower. Second time in the pyramid was a suite. I kept bumping my head looking out the window! The "inclinators" are cool when you've had a few. Needs an update but nothing horrible.

    Thanks Chuck, I'm sure we'll hit our heads a few times too. After a few drinks we won't even care.

    We've stayed at the Luxor three times. The first time, we got a spa tub suite in the pyramid - it was a bit worn around the edges, but still nice. I only bumped my head on the windows twice. The second time we got the same type of room, but it was monsoon season, and the seals on the windows seemed to be worn out - it reeked of mildew. The third time we chose a room in the tower, and we were very happy - luxurious furnishings and a big marble bathroom. The pyramid rooms are something you might want to experience once (if it's dry), but the tower rooms are far superior.
