Luxor Pyramid

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by LoisRose on January 8, 2005

Upon entering, I was awed by the view of the inside of the pyramid to the top. This is one of the least "casino-like" casinos in Las Vegas. The lighting is subdued. The entranceway is lined with huge Egyptian-style statues, not slot machines.

I don't smoke, and after all the stinky casinos I walked through on this trip, The Luxor was refreshing. It actually smells wonderful!

Near the escalator to the second level, I noticed the emanation of a wonderful essential oil fragrance. I am allergic to perfume, but this was a very pleasurable fragrance and added to the ambience. The King Tut Museum is only $5 and features full-size replicas of all the most interesting artifacts from the original collection.

I loved the shops full of Egyptian items on the second level. I noticed the wedding chapel decor is not "Egyptian," but rather "American."

We did not stay here, and from what I've heard, the pyramid guest rooms leak when it rains—so it seems the tower rooms are the best option for winter if you plan to sleep here.
