Ancient Egypt 21st Century Las Vegas
Welcome to the Luxor Hotel. This homage to ancient Egypt is simply stunning and well worth a visit. Not only is it one the biggest hotels in the United States – 30 stories high, with a staggering 4,400 rooms – but it is largely built in the shape of a 365-foot (111-meter) high pyramid.
To complete the Egyptian theme a 140-foot (42.5-meter) tall obelisk and a 110-foot (33.5-meter) high recreation of the great sphinx of Giza stand guard at the front of the Luxor Hotel. Some say the Hotel is cursed, and will stay that way until a giant eye is placed on the top of the pyramid.
Spotlight on the stars at the Luxor Hotel
You can’t fail to notice, especially at night, a spotlight on the top of the pyramid. It points straight up into the sky and the light beam is visible from outer space. It is quite possibly the brightest beam of light in the world.
