Can anyone shed light on this for me because I'm searching videos and not finding anything ....any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance .

    Towers are far better. Closer to the pool, more modern, and just nicer in general. The only reason that I'd stay in the Pyramid would be for the kitsch factor and experience.

    I agree Towers are a much better option, definitely more updated and nicer all around.

    Same as above. I’ve only heard about the tower suites, but I’ve stayed in a pyramid suite and it wasn’t that special other than your staying in a pyramid. I’d be curious to see if they are indeed updated though, mine was not...

    Some pyramid rooms/suites are renovated. But renovation can go only so far.
    It can't enlarge the room or remove the slanted ceiling of the pyramid.

    If you can get a Premier suite in the Tower instead of in the pyramid, I'd take it.

    They have "Premier" suites in both the pyramid and the tower but they are completely different layouts.

    I stayed in the pyramid version before the renovation and it was kind of cool with the Egyptian theme. But now they've de-themed it and IMO it's not worth having to ride the crappy elevators in the pyramid unless you REALLY want to stay in the pyramid.

    The Luxor website has pics that I think accurately represent both.

    Pyramid version:
    https://luxor.mgmresorts.com/en/hotel/pyramid-premier-suite.html (scroll down for a set of 4 pics)
    This video will give you an idea of the pyramid version layout. It has the new decor. The thumbnail/preview image they used for this video is completely wrong, as you'll see.




    Tower Version:
    https://luxor.mgmresorts.com/en/hotel/tower-premier-suite.html (scroll down for a set of 4 pics)
    This is a video of the Tower Premier:




    There's also a "Deluxe Premier" version in the Tower that's 150 SF larger than the plain "Premier"

    Here is a walkthrough of a Pyramid Premier Suite.


    While generally I agree the Towers are nicer than the Pyramid, this would be one of the exceptions.

    Like the Tower Premier Suites, The Pyramid Premier is on the top few floors. The Pyramid Premier is actually slightly more recently renovated. I think the suite is just cooler with the slanted walls and that you are staying in a very unique hotel.

    I was in the Tower one bedroom standard suite last week - plenty of room for one or a couple... I've stayed in all the tower suites, each step up is worth it if you like a lot of space. Ask for the West Tower if you want to be closet to the pool.

    Adding to what @Chuck2009x said, I learned during my last stay at Luxor that the additional 150 square feet in the "Deluxe Premier" compared to the "Premier" consists almost entirely of an additional half bathroom. Otherwise it's basically the same as the Premier.

    So, here's a weird thing, if you look at the Tower Premier Deluxe walkthrough on Luxor's website, you'll notice there isn't a powder room, just the Master.
    The regular Tower Premier Suite has the extra 1/2 bath. So does the Pyramid Premier.

    Personally, I prefer the Pyramid because of the shorter walk to the casino. When it comes to the room, I am not that picky. As long as it is clean, and the water is running, I am happy.

    Lux is our home away from home. No visit to the motherland is complete without a stay there. We definitely recommend the towers for sure. West tower is closer to the pools and a little shorter walk to the casino than the East. If you've never stayed in the pyramid you might want to just to say you have. Although after your first night my guess is the novelty will wear off. The towers are largely renovated and the rooms are very nice. Lux gets a bad rap but we love staying there.

    We've stayed at Luxor 3 times in the last 2 years. Once in a Tower Suite and twice in the Pyramind King Corner Suite.

    We liked the Pyramid better and felt it was quiter than the tower.

    Welcome to the board! The Tower Suites have all been newly renovated, most of the Pyramid Suites have not.

    Video of the basic Tower Suite:




    Video of the basic Pyramid Suite:




    I recently stayed in the Tower Suite in March and liked it. As you can see in the videos, the Tower suite is a "true" suite with a door between the living room and bedroom while the Pyramid suite is one large room. Towers have nicer TVs & fixtures, the Pyramids have the large tub by the window.

    A lot of people who recommend the Pyramid do so for the novelty of it and riding the inclinator up to the room but the Tower Suites are definitely nicer, newer, and what I would recommend.

    Hi there and Welcome!
    The tower for sure is my vote. I am 6'2 and much prefer my room not have slanted walls, much prefer equal height ceilings across the board. Love the larger bedroom and living area being seperate from each other. I stayed in the West Tower and while it is a little bit of a walk to the elevators it really didn't bother me.

    Pyramid premier suite is completely different from the pyramid corner suite and they have been renovated. A pyramid premier is the largest one bedroom suite they sell to the public by a lot at 1600 [edit - I was browsing rooms this evening and its listed as 1200, not 1600, but the point is it's huge and nothing like the corner pyramid suites] square feet give or take. This room is on my bucket list because I want to stay in the pyramid but not in a garbage room. Like someone else mentioned, it's the one possible exception to tower being better than pyramid. The 1br tower premier is newer and no funny shapes, but the pyramid one is much larger in terms of square footage. It's a matter if personal preference. If it was a regular pyramid corner suite then all tower suites win hands down, but this pyramid room, I havent been in one yet but it's on my list. It's the only one I'd pick over a standard or premier tower 1br.

    Here's a few pics from when I stayed in the Pyramid version in 2017. The furniture was beat up , but I think overall it all worked better than what they have in there now. Which is irrelevant now of course.

    Tower for sure, if available. At this point, the pyramid is a novelty. The biggest downside to the towers is that they're kind of a hike from the casino, but no worse than getting from Delano to the floor at MB.

    I love the old Egyptian themed stuff. Luxor should have kept the theme just updated things so it didn't look so dingy. People pay good money for example for themed Penthouses at Disneyland/World as an example. Just put good TV's, linens, tubs, lighting, etc. in there and it would do well.
