Luxor Las Vegas
The Luxor toll-free number is 1-888-777-0188 and is located at 3900 Las Vegas Blvd. South, in
between Mandalay Bay and The Excalibur. Luxor is a midrange property a step above "budget" resorts like
Circus Circus and Excalibur; and not quite as fancy as "luxury" resorts like Venetian and Bellagio.
We've been a guest at the Luxor twice (in the mid to late 1990s) and have no complaints. UPDATE: We stayed at the Luxor for a third time,
in late December 2006. Other than the inclinator interiors looking a bit old and beat up, the place hasn't changed much in 10 years.
The RA nightclub has moved out but everything else we remember from previous trips is the same.
Luxor offers a unique option: living inside an actual pyramid. While other properties are set up to LOOK LIKE something, the
Luxor's main building is actually a giant pyramid rather than a facade or "false front" like New York New York's
fake skyscrapers or Excalibur's fake castle.
Stepping out of your room puts
you onto a walkway on the inner pyramid wall overlooking the casino and other ground level attractions.
No other property offers this perspective and feeling of spaciousness (rather than stepping out of your room
into a narrow hallway; you have the entire emptiness of the pyramid structure overlooking the casino before you.)
There is a guard rail for safety but I've heard a few people have suicide-jumped to the casino floor.
They also have newer "tower" rooms if the pyramid arrangement does not appeal to you. We also advise
staying on a high floor or making sure your room does not face the casino if you choose to stay in the pyramid, as the lower floor rooms are not
insulated from the casino noise. Floors 10 thru 24 should be quiet. Floors 25 thru 30 are very quiet, being
sealed off from the open pyramid interior. Kind of like the top point of the pyramid is a self-enclosed mini hotel.
So if you want quiet and don't care about being able to see the casino
from the hallway, stay on the top floors. We were in room 30023 in December 2006 and it was awesomely peaceful.
Helpful hint: sign up for a slot club card and you can use it
in the future to get on the "VIP line" during check-in.
