LUXOR

Architecturally speaking, the Luxor, with its pyramid design and Egyptian theme, is the most unique resort in Las Vegas. Named after Egypt¹s most exotic tourist destination, Luxor Las Vegas stands 30 stories tall, topped by one of the world¹s brightest beams of light, has 120,000 square feet of casino space and 4,408 rooms -­ making it the second largest hotel in the United States. This entertainment destination hosts a wide variety of first-rate entertainment, award-winning restaurants and state-of-the-art gaming features.

Accommodations: In the main pyramid building, there are 2,526 rooms and suites that cling to the inside of the pyramid. Each room has a sloped wall and bank of windows with views of The Strip and surrounding mountains and a door that opens to overlook the pyramid's interior atrium. There are 1,950 additional rooms in the adjacent tower just north of the pyramid. The rooms are accented with wooden furniture that's etched with Egyptian characters.

Casino & Gaming: The casino, with the usual mix of slots and table games, is among the largest on The Strip and one of the most attractive with its sandstone walls decorated with colorful Egyptian murals and bas-relief sculptures of ancient kings and queens.

Attractions: Pharaoh's Pavilion has a variety of attractions. King Tut's Tomb and Museum is there, an accurate reproduction of Howard Carter's 1922 find, often called the most significant archaeological discovery of modern history. The burial chamber and treasury room feature more than 500 replicas of mummies, Egyptian furniture, a chariot, pottery, baskets, jewelry, linens and other artifacts. Other features in the Pavilion include Pharaoh's Theater, home of "Midnight Fantasy"; the IMAX Theatre; "In Search of the Obelisk" motion-simulator ride; and Games of the Gods Arcade. The gift shop sells Egyptian antiquities and keepsakes. The year-round pool complex has five pools and four spas. Be pampered at the Oasis Spa.

Entertainment: "Blue Man Group: Live at the Luxor" took up residence in the Luxor Theater in March 2000. Three men in, yes, blue greasepaint present this weird but wildly inventive and universally funny show.

Dining: The hotel has seven restaurants. Topping the list are Isis for continental dining; Papyrus for fine Asian and Polynesian cuisine; Sacred Sea Room for fresh and salt-water seafood; and Luxor Steakhouse. You also can find a 24-hour coffee shop, buffet, deli and ice cream parlor.
