    We'll be spending two mid-week nights in November, and it's through MyVegas so the price is not a factor...... We were leaning toward Excalibur because we love kitsch, but we also like clean/comfortable/safe/some luxury......... Any thoughts are welcome!

    There is no luxury at the Ex. Safe, probably. Clean. Sometimes.

    I havent stayed at the luxor for a while but just got back from NYNY. Its mid level at best but it was clean, good service and decent food. Rooms were always clean. I would take nyny over the Ex but not sure on Luxor. You cant go wrong, you're in Vegas!

    Caveat: I have not stayed at any, but if you like kitsch, excalibur might be fun. The rooms will absolutely be nicer at NYNY, but I personally prefer the casino at Excalibur. NYNY's casino always seems a little small for me/choppy.

    I think all will be safe. Remember, a "low"-tier hotel in Vegas is like a standard hotel most anywhere else. Check on oyster.com for pics and see what you like best.

    On Luxor, also a decent casino and a cool hotel. Just avoid pyramid rooms if possible, from what I've read. Tower rooms are better.

    Where ever you stay, if you gamble at all, make SURE to stop by the mlife desk before you check out, and ask if you've played enough to have any resort fees or other charges removed. Even if they only remove one night, it's a win, and if they dont, you're not out anything!

    Whatever you choose, have a BLAST!!!!

    I haven't stayed at any of these but I've visited all three. During no-pool season I too would choose nyny. Fun, lively place to gamble, and they have the very affordable Stupididiotic store for kitschy shopping. Even sapphire mlife members get a discount there. Plus, I always have a hard time finding my way out of Excalibur. With nyny you're already within shooting distance of lots of otjer casinos. Have fun!

    I have stayed a couple of times at excalibur, I always believed it was nice, clean, I like the casino a lot. I have also stayed at Luxor, it would be hard for me to choose, I usually go where the FP & RC is best :)
    comment before about tower tooms better than pyramid rooms is absolutely true, it is a bit of a walk to the tower though.
    I have never stayed at NYNY but played there, but to me the casino always looks a bit too crowded even if there are not that many players....

    Excalibur definitely not. I always liked NYNY. never stayed at Luxor, but the decor seems very nice, and I've always liked the inside.

    Hey thanks very much y'all! Great feedback. We settled on Excalibur b/c I have two nights with MyVegas, and we have to pay for one night and it is by far cheapest at Excalibur. "Stupididiotic" Store?!?! Sounds like my kind of place, I will check it out!

    We've stayed at Flamingo, Caesars and Mirage on the strip in the past, but never stayed at this end so it will be fun to be close to all three, Excalibur, NYNY and Luxor as well as MGM. Gonna be a good time! Thanks for your input!

    I have stayed at all 3. If $$ is not an issue, no question for me that NYNY is the best of the 3.
