Last Glimpse of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas

This is one of the last pictures I took inside Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Luxor, I am not talking about Luxor in Egypt here but about Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, is also the last hotel I visited before I flew back to Europe. I felt like visiting Luxor in Egypt every time I go inside this hotel. Take a look at it below!

The Luxor is located on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, opposite the McCarran International Airport. The resort is flanked by the Mandalay Bay to the south and by the Excalibur to the north; all three are connected by free express and local trams. All three properties were built by Circus Circus Enterprises, which later became Mandalay Resort Group.

When it opened on October 15, 1993, the pyramid was the tallest building on the strip and took 2 years to build and a total of 968 workers; it cost $375 million to build. A theater and two additional hotel towers totaling 2,000 rooms were added in 1998 for $675 million. In June 2004, the Mandalay Resort Group was purchased by MGM Mirage, adding this hotel to its vast array of properties on the “Strip”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxor_Las_Vegas
