Elevators creepy on the angle. video poker tables not so good. Drink service seemed very good. Great variety in food choices. I thought the breakfast buffet was good.
Tender is an excellent steak house. Employees friendly. Wi Fi bad.
the food is reasonably priced. i signed up for a return visit via checking out grandview. if this is terrible somebody tell me. the casino was alive with lots of machines and a good amount of tables. i thought i even saw some 8/5 bonus poker, but i have not seen it on the sites that record this stuff. all in all a pretty cool place except like the last reviewer said resort fees.
Luxor Las Vegas Review (Sept. 2011): Hotel/Casino located near South end of the Las Vegas Strip nestled in between the Mandalay Bay and Excalibur hotels. Parking/Transportation: Didn't use their parking garage as we didn't have a rental. It's very easy to get around the neighboring two casinos, i.e. Mandalay Bay and Excalibur Hotels via their free tram system. If you want to continue on to the rest of the strip Northbound, you have to get off the tram at Excalibur and transfer to the Monorail, which you can hop on at the adjacent MGM Grand casino station. Gaming: I didn't see too many Blackjack $.25 machines, wish they had more of those. Drink service was ok, but could've been more timelier when we were playing Caveman Keno. The more video poker machines the better. Restaurants: Pyramid Cafe was ok. We took our meal to go. Had the ribs which were decent. There are two Starbucks inside the Luxor. One of them gets real busy, had a line halfway down the hall, the other end doesn't get as busy. Love their chocolate croissants... Rooms: We stayed at the Celebrity Spa Suite and received a real good discount on the jacuzzi suite. Well worth it, even though we got stuck with paying their rip off Resort fee charges. MGM - We do NOT want to pay Resort fees! Do I have to say it again? I will avoid staying at any MGM resort hotels as long as you charge these Resort fees. Harrah's doesn't charge any Resort fees, guess I will be staying with them more often in Vegas, oh well.
First off, I love the idea/concept of this casino. I love how many of the older hotels (Luxor isn't that old but you know what I mean) are themed. A Giant Pyramid that send a beam of light and illuminates the South Strip at night. How genius?!
Anyway, if you only see or do one thing at The Luxor, check out the Bodies Exhibit. It is not gross, but rather extremely fascinating. You even get to hold a real human lung! I'm telling you it's not gross at all. It's weird how all that stuff under our skin looks and this will give you a REAL look at it.
