A sleek, glass-cloaked replica of Egypt's iconic pyramid, Luxor is an exuberant hotel studded on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip. Established in 1993, this hotel is fronted by a giant, rather elegant sphinx. A locus of all things luxury and entertainment, Luxor is home to a sprawling casino, clubs, a spa, and other high-end facilities. The pyramid reaches 350 feet into the air, the equivalent of 36 stories. It is one of the world's largest atrium and a crown jewel of Las Vegas. This luxury resort nestles amid many splendid edifices like Mandala Bay and Excalibur. Perhaps the resort's most defining feature after its facade is the intense Luxor Light Beam that crowns it, being nothing less than a beacon of light for the hotel.
