Luxor Hotel, Las Vegas

Luxor Hotel is one of Las Vegas biggest Hotel. I was here around four times during my two months stay in Las Vegas. The first time we went here, we bought some tickets for shows like watching in the Luxor IMAX Cinema. The first ride we had was like we were in the space ..like the Star trek..you’re familiar with that movie right??? Due to my motion sickness problem, I stopped the movie…sorry I just can’t take the motion that I felt like vomiting while travelling in the so called space journey “kuno”… We also watch another movie, feeling like we are down the ocean…that was very fantastic and amazing how the ocean life was presented!!I love this hotel!! it is also very nice. I am feeling that I am in Luxor, Egypt…great experience!!

The Luxor is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It was one of the city’s first fully-themed megaresorts. Ground was broken for the Luxor in 1991, that same year construction began on the Treasure Island and the current MGM Grand. It has an Ancient Egyptian motif and contains a total of 4,407 rooms lining the interior walls of a hollow pyramid and contained within twin ziggurat towers that were built as later additions. The hotel is named after the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) in Egypt, the site of the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor Temples, and scores of other pharaonic monuments — but no pyramids.

In July 2007, owner MGM Mirage announced plans to thoroughly renovate the Luxor, spending $300 million to remodel 80 percent of Luxor’s public areas, removing much of the ancient Egyptian theme and replacing it with more adult-oriented and modern lounges, restaurants and clubs.[1] Among the distinctive changes to the exterior occurred in mid-2007, when management covered one of the pyramid’s massive black faces with a 15-story sign that advertises Absolut Vodka. On June 16, 2008 the sign was taken down.
