There are many gorgeous hotels to choose from in Las Vegas but none quite as iconic as the landmark Luxor at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip! Where else do you have the chance to stay in a pyramid?! It is the perfect family destination in Las Vegas!

Family Fun at Luxor in Las Vegas
The famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada welcomes you as the start your drive down the Las Vegas Strip. Shortly following is the Luxor pyramid.
If you fly into Las Vegas at night like we did, you’ll see the Luxor Sky Beam of light that shines out of the top of the pyramid from high up in the sky. It is the strongest beam of light in the world at 42.3 billion candela, enough to be seen from airplanes and even space!
There is no hotel like the Luxor! The gorgeous black glass exterior in the shape of a pyramid is a sight to see as is the replica of the Great Sphinx of Giza at 110 feet tall at the entrance.
The atrium inside is the world’s largest at 29 million cubic feet. Much of the Egyptian decor, attractions, and costumed staff has been removed and updated for more modern look, to my disappointment. Some statures still remain and there is no getting around the fact that you are staying inside a pyramid!
It was quite strange to ride the inclinator – the Luxor elevator. This elevator doesn’t go up and down, instead it travels at an incline at a 39 degree angle to take you to your room!
We stayed in a Pyramid Deluxe Queen Room with two queen beds, a sitting area, flat screen TV, and of course, a slanted large window. I’ve always wondered what the rooms inside the Luxor looked like, especially the windows!
My kids were pretty excited to look out of the slanted windows down onto the pools! What a unique view! The room was spacious at 420 square feet, perfect for families. There was even room for a roll-away bed so my kids could sleep comfortably as well.
The Luxor offers a dessert oasis with four large sections of pools that equal 19,000 square feet of fun with a 125,650 square-feet pool deck! We were disappointed that one pool was only for those paying extra and two other pools were closed during our stay. However, the pool below offered cool refreshing entertainment for our family in the 100° days!
There is also a pool-side store for things you may have forgotten like pool toys, swimsuits, and sunscreen as well as a snack stand for refreshments.
We were at the Luxor long enough to take in a show but there are several shows at Luxor including Blue Man Group, which is family-friendly. For the adults, check out the casino with over 2,000 slot machines and 87 table games to choose from.
There are many restaurants on-site to choose from including a buffet, deli, cafe, Tender Steak & Seafood, Rice and Company, and a food court with fast food options. There is a Starbucks Coffee practically around every corner too if you stayed up too late the night before! If you prefer, you can order meals with in-room dining or take-out with Pyramid Cafe Delivery.
The Luxor is connected by bridges and local trams to Mandalay Bay at the south and Excalibur to the north.
