Luxor Hotel Las Vegas Review: Budget-Friendly Resort with Great Amenities

Editor’s Rating: 3/5

Pros


Cons


One of the best things about Luxor is that it has everything you need right on site. There’s a casino, several restaurants, bars, a spa, and four shows. So you can easily spend a few days here without ever leaving the hotel.

Luxor is located on the south end of The Strip, between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur. Just keep in mind that if you want to explore other parts of Las Vegas, you’ll either be walking a lot or hailing a cab.

Key Features

  • Luxor is a hotel and casino located on the south end of The Strip.
  • The resort is home to four shows including Blue Man Group and Carrot Top.
  • The rooms at Luxor are small and simple; the newer tower rooms are more luxurious.

Room

Luxor is one of the most iconic hotels on The Strip, thanks in part to its iconic pyramid shape. Luxor’s pyramid rooms are some of the most unique in all of Las Vegas. To get to your room, you’ll ride an elevator that moves diagonally up the side of the pyramid. These rooms are small but simple, and they’re a great option if you’re looking for an affordable room on The Strip.

Luxor also has a newer tower that features more modern rooms and suites. These rooms are a bit more expensive than the pyramid rooms, but they offer more amenities and updated decor. If you’re looking for a more luxurious stay, the tower rooms at Luxor are a great option.

Luxor is one of the most affordable hotels on The Strip, especially during the week and offseason. That being said, some of the rooms are starting to show their age. I’ve only been in the pyramid rooms, they’re basic hotel rooms that are perfect for a budget-minded traveler. So if you’re looking for a cheap hotel room in Las Vegas, Luxor is a great option. But if you’re looking for a luxurious stay, you might want to consider another hotel.

Pool

If you’re looking for a place to take a dip and soak up some rays on The Strip, look no further than the pool at Luxor. With four distinct pools to choose from, there’s something for everyone at this iconic hotel. Here’s what you need to know before you go.

There are four pools on the pool deck at Luxor, so you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. The family pool is perfect for those traveling with young children, but don’t let that deter you away if you don’t have kids. The other three pools are great for adults looking to relax or party—or both! No matter what kind of atmosphere you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.

Guests have access to free towel service, lounge chairs, and poolside amenities like cabanas (for a fee). The only thing you’ll have to worry about is finding a spot to put your towel—they fill up fast! Make sure you bring your sunscreen, there’s not a lot of shade.

If you’re looking to make a day of it, the Luxor pool is a great spot for a cocktail in the sun. They often do pool parties and have DJ music playing on busy days. So whether you’re looking to relax or let loose, you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

Luxor also has a food court with various fast-food options, a Starbucks, and a deli. So no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll be able to find it at Luxor.
