Luxor vs Excalibur

Hello All,

Looking for some advice. Trip will be late march with 4 guys in their late 20s/early 30s. What hotel would be better for us. I am looking at the tower deluxe rooms at Luxor or the contemporary rooms at excalibur. How do the pools compare? How do the rooms compare? Do they both have plenty of bars?

Thanks

Minneapolis...

Go toward midstrip where the fun is - anywhere close to the perfect location which is the Mirage would be good. I'd prefer Luxor over Excalibur though if those were my only choices.

Stayed at both...Luxor wins slightly on room and being inside a pyramid while in Vegas is cool. Buffet at Excalibur is slightly better than Luxor...but both are bottom end of hotels. I'd spring just a little more and go to NY NY or Monte Carlo. A bit closer to things and we like the other food options much better. Not a pool person so can't help there. Excalibur feels like a casino Disney would have built, but really run down now.

I have stayed at both in the past and prefer Luxor. IMO, its just a nicer property with more to offer. Both pools are decent (both are on youtube if you want a visual) Excal pool seemed to have more under 18 kids when i was there 4 yrs ago. If those were my choices, Luxor would be my choice. Im with the others tho, I would also look at prop up the strip. MC seems to be a better choice for not much more $$. Pretty sure you will have fun wherever you stay. Good luck

Luxor is a step above. Excalibur is always crowded, annoying, filled with annoying timeshare people, staff trying to get in your face about shows, it's just--obnoxious. The ONLY thing good about Excalibur was the pools. That place looks ridiculous from the outside, stinks on the inside and is practically a dump.

Luxor has Flight and Cat house, both nice places for cocktails. It's just a nicer atmosphere. The rooms are okay if you're in a suite or updated room. It also has LAX Nightclub right across from Flight.

I'd choose Luxor hands down over Excalibur.

For four guys def. Luxor. I personally love it. I love the little drink place right by the check in, if you keep your cup you get discounted refills. The lax is also a cool club. The pool is nice as well. Nice size and not too many kids, you can also bring outside drinks in AND they don't search your bags. Which I guess is a big deal to some because people like to bring in their own alcohol.

Excalibur tower 1 rooms, are circa 1990 when it opened. tower 2 are more remodeled, but dark and rather cheap. The casino can be fun, lot of beer drinkers, younger, rougher crowd. Cheap tables. Cheap food. Luxor has really old pyramid rooms, but the casino is more upscale, but not fancy. Crowd (and women) tend to be a little classier here as well. Tower rooms are larger, cleaner and more modern than the pyramid or tower 1 rooms. Luxor would be my suggestion of those two.
