Sleeping in a Pyramid


I'm not a huge fan of Las Vegas but, a couple of years ago I had to attend a conference there and the hotel I was given was the Luxor, that giant pyramid on the Las Vegas strip.  I have to admit, I did enjoy my room with the slanted wall and those elevators that have to jog sideways a little as they get to the higher floors.

The main floor center of the hotel is where the casino is located with all it's noisy machines and busy tables.  Above the casino on the second floor is a sort of play area with amusement rides, restaurants and entertainment venues.

I believe that's sushi bar in the photo to the left.




























I do enjoy all things Egyptian so I have to say that I did admire the effort that was put into the interior.  It did give the feeling of a giant temple.   Of course those giant video screens and noisy slot machines wouldn't have been present back in ancient Egypt.  At least I don't think they were.  :-)

If going to the Luxor casino can rive a feel for visiting Egypt, then without leaving Vegas you can travel to ROme, Venice, the Itallion Lakes (Bellagio), Monte Carlo, tropical islands, Rio, Paris, etc,

Had a fun time there with my son his wife and grandson. I thought the same as you before going, but we enjoyed the slanted ceilings and Egyptian influence. We had a hot tub at one of the windows and had a fantastic view.
