Excalibur can accommodate over 4,000 people. It's also in a great location, only a walkway from New York/New York and the MGM Grand. Also, if you book online, upon arrival you will receive excellent money-off vouchers, including a marvelous 2-for-1 offer on their buffet lunch--the standard price of $10.99 already represented great value for money. The dinner buffet is only a few dollars more, the food was great--they have an excellent carvery section of turkey, prime rib, and ham, a Mexican and a Chinese corner, and a lot more.
Circus Circus has always been toted as the place to stay with children. However, Excalibur is a much more pleasant hotel with just as many distractions and shows for the family. Another advantage of Excalibur is the size of its casino floor, and unlike its neighbouring hotels, it has $5 tables available for all the classic casino games.
The hotel also has excellent spa and gym facilities and a perfectly adequate pool area. A good tip, though, is although the official check-in is at 3pm, the reception rarely turns early-comers away (we checked in at 12) and even has a red door sign to alert the cleaning staff you have arrived early and your room needs preparing, which is a facility that Luxor lacked.

Service staff is prompt. We requested extra pillows and within 15 minutes they arrived.
The price range listed above was a special offered at the time. I believe that normally, rooms run from $75-$200.
There are four separate towers, two on either end of the hotel. If you''re not careful, it''s very easy to get turned around in there. Of course, you have to walk through the barrage of slots and tables to get to your room, but that is par for the course.
Each tower has a security guard and only keycard holding guests and their parties) are allowed up to the rooms. I rather enjoyed that aspect since it prevents for ne''er-do-wells from creating a ruckus in the residences.
There is a food court on the 2nd floor of the hotel (accessible through the main casino) which includes a McDonald''s, Cold Stone Ice Creamery, Krispy Kremes, Wetzels Pretzels, and Cafe Expresso.
There is also Sir Galahad''s Pub & Prime Rib House as well as Regale Italian Eatery for those who want a little more sustenance.
There is plenty of parking, so no need to valet unless that is your preference.
Slots seem to pay out fairly. I won $80 on my first pull, but still kick myself for putting in two coins instead of three.

Although the outside is bright white with colorful turrets of red, blue and gold, the dark color scheme in the guest rooms is a bit dull for my taste but the location and price compensate and since this is Vegas, you''re not in the room much anyway. On the plus side, the rooms are large with 2 queen size beds and our room had a large picture window with a good view of the strip. The bathrooms are also large and contain a hairdryer and the usual toiletries.
One of the features I really like is the security. You can''t get access to the tower elevators where the rooms are unless you show your room key. Since my husband usually stays up later to gamble than I do, this security helped me to feel very safe heading up to my room alone at 2 a.m.
Excalibur has a shopping arcade, lots of restaurants and an extremely large casino. If you hear loud trumpets, it means that King Arthur and his court are in the neighborhood and you may want to keep an eye out for their procession.
The large outdoor pool is sort of U shaped with a rock ledge and small waterfalls diving the sections. A lifeguard is on duty and there is a small shop beside the pool where you can buy sun screen, etc. if you''ve forgotten yours at home. Naturally, poolside beverage service is available and this is a great place to relax and recoup your energy for another round of sightseeing and/or gambling.
There are a number of large, popular casinos in the immediate vicinity, including New York, New York and The MGM. The Luxor and Mandalay Bay are a short monorail ride away.
The price is downright cheap - double rooms start at $59.00 but I''d recommend paying a bit more for a room with a view of the Strip - it''s quite spectacular at night.
