I have stayed at the Luxor before but only been inside the Monte Carlo. For those of you that have stayed at each, which do you prefer and why. I am bringing my wife out for her 50th and looking at staying at the Monte Carlo, strip view, 23rd floor or above. I want to have a nice pool with plenty of sunshine. That is one thing I do remember is that the Luxor has an awesome pool. Coming out the middle of June.
