Luxor Pyramid Premier Room Review
Luxor Las Vegas opened in 1993 when Vegas was focused on family friendly theming (Excalibur, Treasure Island, MGM Grand). Since then, most of the Egyptian theming has been removed. Still, staying in one of the rooms in the pyramid is a unique experience. Fortunately the rooms in the pyramid were updated in 2021 just shy of the property’s 30th birthday; though most of the furniture is hand-me-downs from Bellagio.
Previously I had stayed in both a Pyramid and Tower Room. I was looking forward to seeing the updates to the Pyramid Rooms and the mid-week rate was only $36.62 after tax per night. Resort fees add on an additional $39.68 per night but are waived for MGM Rewards Gold elite and above. With their partnership with Hyatt, I earned stay credits and World of Hyatt points for my stay.
I was assigned room 15064, a Two Queen room.
The pyramid has 30 floors, so my room, on floor 15, was right in the middle. To get to the rooms in the pyramid, you take one of the incline elevators that travel at a 39 degree angle. You then walk along an interior hallway that overlooks the atrium. For some reason a large scale model of New York New York is behind some of the interior theming.
Once inside the room, the bathroom is on the right. The room is on the smaller size at 420 square feet. There is no added security lock on the door; just the deadbolt that is engaged by turning the door handle to the up position.
The beds are against a blue and orange accent wall that matches some of the other finishes in the room.
Against the angled windows are a couple of chairs. I had a view of the pool area but due to a window decal/advertisement on the outside of the building, most of the outside light was a dark blue hue.
The beds faced a large closet and TV feature. There was a cabinet meant for a mini fridge but it was just an empty space.
The bathroom also received some superficial updates; though the toilet and shower doors are not new. There is a single sink but plenty of counter space that is only slightly taken up by the piles of towels.
The bath products are individual bottles and a bar of soap. I found it lower quality than some of the other MGM properties but functional.
Overall, it is nice to see some updates to the aging property. If you can stay mid-week, the rates are quite low and still earn Hyatt points and elite night credits. There are many better hotels in Vegas but the Luxor is a little better than it was.
