Luxor Las Vegas is a 30-story casino hotel situated on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The hotel is owned by Vici Properties and operated by MGM Resorts International and has a 120,000-square-foot (11,000 m2) casino with over 2,000 slot machines and 87 table games. The hotel is named for the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) in Egypt.
The casino opened in 1993 and was renovated and expanded several times. Later renovation work modernized the design of the property and raised the hotel’s capacity to 4,407 rooms, including 442 suites. The hotel’s rooms line the interior walls of the main tower, which has a pyramid shape, and the 22-story twin ziggurat towers.
Luxor Las Vegas includes 20,000 sq ft (1,900 m2) of convention space, four swimming pools and whirlpools, a wedding chapel, Nurture Spa and Salon, and 29 retail stores. As of 2010, the Luxor was designated as a 4 Key rating from the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, which evaluates what is known as “sustainable hotel operations.”The hotel features inclined elevators which travel up the side of the building on a 39-degree incline. Luxor Las Vegas also has the largest atrium in the world (by volume) 0.82 million m3.
It may not be ancient, but the Luxor is technically as much a pyramid as any found in Mexico or Egypt. The Luxor pyramid is, in fact, one of the largest pyramids in the United States and one of the tallest in the world. At around 350ft (107m) tall, it’s dwarfed only by two of the pyramids in Giza, Egypt.
