No. 6 Luxor Hotel & Casino
The world’s strongest light beam shines nightly from the giant pyramid that is Luxor. That and its other “ancient” elements—replicas of Cleopatra’s Needle, the Sphinx, the Great Temple of Ramses II—haven’t changed in the 20 years it has been open. But the rooms, shopping, and entertainment have had some much-needed work done, most notably along the sky bridge that connects Luxor to Mandalay Bay. Look for all the traditional games on the casino floor, but if you’re a rookie, make a beeline for the poker room where you an get free lessons.
The Buzz: Luxor is known for its quirky entertainment, such as prop comedian Carrot Top, and the Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil joint performance, "Criss Angel Believe." Urban dance crew Jabbawockeez arrives in the spring of 2013.
