Review: Luxor Las Vegas Tower Luxury Suite

The Luxor is one of MGMs “lower end” property, but its appeal mostly comes from its pyramid shaped design, which is iconic along the strip. In addition to the central pyramid, there are two, newer, towers, which are adjacent to the main building.

While these towers are newer, and supposedly have better rooms, I’m curious to see what the pyramid rooms looked liked since I wasn’t all that impressed.

I was upgraded to this Tower Luxury Suite thanks to my MLife Platinum status, which I find quite useful at MGM owned properties. Initially when checking in at the front desk I wasn’t offered this room category, but after matching my MLife number to the reservation, the agent stepped away to talk to a supervisor for a moment, before giving me this quite large room.

It’s worth noting that the towers are a little bit of a walk from the central area and front desk. While not that far, it’s not right around the corner either. Plan on 10 minutes to get you from A-B with a decent paced walk.

Opening the room door, you’re greeted with a seating area and wet bar to the left.

The bar took up the entire length of the wall and featured a refrigerator and sink.

A TV stood next to the couch, and there was an ethernet cord there for wired internet. This hotel did not feature wireless internet, which is something I cannot fathom in a Las Vegas strip hotel. I ended up pickup up random signals from across the area, some of which affiliated with the hotel, but those would only last for a few moments and disappear. As far as connectivity goes, this was one of the worst hotels I’ve been at. When I tried to use my phone as a hotspot, the signal wasn’t strong enough, either.

To the right of the bar was the entrance to the bedroom, which had a closing door for privacy.

The bed was comfortable, but on the harder side. An arm chair sat in the corner.

Off of the bedroom was the large master bathroom.IMG_3718

Bath products were not replenished daily, and I also found towel replacement hit or miss as well.

My Take

Unless you’ve got a reason to specifically be at this property, or have free night credits, I would avoid this property 0 if anything, solely due the lack of housekeeping service and, more importantly, lack of connectivity. For me, that’s important that I be able to connect to free internet right away, and especially in an area where cell service may be blocked by building construction, it’s even more important to have reliable wireless.

    I stayed at the Luxor in one of the pyramid rooms back in 2010. It was terrible; I would compare it to a Motel 6. I had a view of the airport. The only redeeming thing about it was the fact that I got to take the diagonal elevator to my room on a high floor. Yes, in the pyramid there are elevators that go diagonally up the side of the pyramid. It is actually a very cool experience and one I am not sure you can find any place else. Not sure if you have to be a guest to take them or not, but worth checking out.
