Hear ye! Hear ye! Gather round, fair maidens, brave knights and jesters of all shapes and sizes. Prepare yourselves for all the righteous revelry of the Middle Ages, minus the black plague and with much less chance of being executed for being a witch. If you've ever fantasized about staying in a castle, but didn't feel like giving up TV, room service or indoor plumbing, Excalibur is the ideal mix of modern convenience and seventh century style.Have a few wee ones you'd love to take on vacation before it's time to kick them out of the castle? Excalibur is the perfect place for a family getaway. Let your kids, and yourself, go wild playing arcade and all other sorts of games in the Fun Dungeon – the most fun you can have in a dungeon without being the dungeon master. The pool area has a waterslide. (Note: Waterslide is probably not historically accurate.) And the Tournament of Kings, a show fit for royalty, or anyone who's a fan of jousting, will enthrall fans of all ages. Once the kids have gone to bed, the adults can indulge in the naughtier side of nightlife with Thunder From Down Under, a raucous adventure full of the hottest men of the Outback stripping down to their knickers for your enjoyment. If the biggest reason you want to rule a kingdom is to see nearly naked men dance for your pleasure, then this is the show and the venue for you. And never let anyone tell you to rethink your priorities.Once you've worked up a medieval appetite from watching hunks dance and sword fight, or from doing whatever it is you choose to do in the dungeon, Excalibur has a variety of restaurants for you to slam your goblet on the table and demand more mutton. The Steakhouse at Camelot, a Zagat Award winner, prepares fine cuts of beef, fresh seafood and decadent desserts. Enjoy Old World hospitality and family-style service at the beloved Italian restaurant chain Buca di Beppo. A bountiful selection of small-batch comfort dishes abounds at The Buffet at Excalibur. And if you're so over the royal treatment, head to the not so subtly named Dick's Last Resort to savor a menu of pub grub complete with Macho Nachos, Mumbo Jumbo Chicky Wings and the Big Ass Burger all while tolerating the sarcastic staff who make you feel like a whelp being walloped for something you know you totally deserve.On the weekends an area dubbed "The Party Pit" features table games set near a stage topped with scantily clad dancing girls. And the 12-table poker room hosts a sexy "Strip Poker Tournament" on Saturday nights, where guests can watch a lovely lady remove items of her clothing on losing hands. But if you want something more romantic, have a fairytale wedding in full garb, or whatever you happen to be wearing when you decide to get married, at the Canterbury Wedding Chapel.For a family affair, or an affair of the medieval kind, Excalibur has excitement, extravagance and an extra helping of magic that will make you feel like you've been exported to a far off land. Really you'll still be in Vegas, so you can easily take the monorail down to Luxor and Mandalay or walk across to New York New York. But Excalibur is all about embracing the fantasy. So live it up ye kings, queens and knaves. The glory of Excalibur awaits thee.

Great Price and much better than I expected
PostedSeptember 3, 2012
I was very satisfied with my reservations through Vegas.com. Hotel had many extras that i was not aware of. Inside all hotels pretty much the same. The other higher hotels are just appearance and can stay anywhere and still see all the hotels. The worst part of our trip was people standing on corners to give out nasty cards to men seeking companionship but that has nothing to do with hotels. The strip is long we walked the entire strip, buy a bus ticket that is good 24 hours and get on and off where u want, it was worth it. I made a reservation for another hotel that was under construction and then read reviews that sounded awful, Vegas.com let me change that reservation with no hassle to Excalibur and I was very satisfied there. I would book again thru Vegas.com for my next trip. Loved it there so much to see.

If you're looking for luxury, Las Vegas is definitely the city to be in. However, if you're looking for the I-want-to-pretend-I'm-a-celebrity-and-indulge-in-the-best kind of luxury, then The Palazzo Hotel and Casino is the place for you.As the younger sibling to its sister property, The Venetian, The Palazzo has fully embraced the spoiled youngest child stereotype with posh rooms, upscale dining and high-end shopping.To truly capitalize on the Palazzo's luxury, you'll want to stay in the Prestige Suites -- the exclusive concierge level on the 23rd floor. Here you'll enjoy champagne at check-in, afternoon tea, personal concierge assistance and more. However, if you're saving your dollars, know that the standard room in this all-suite hotel has a minimum of 720-square-feet to make your stay as indulgent as possible.  And if a show is on your agenda, you'll be an elevator ride away from the hotel's theater where "Frank - The Man. The Music." plays. Starring impressionist Bob Anderson, the production depicts the legendary entertainer's music from three distinct perspectives -- the recording studio, television specials and personal appearances.Now we get to the good -- we are talking lip-smacking, order seconds good -- stuff. The restaurants at The Palazzo are nothing short of delicious seeing that they originate from the who's who of the culinary world. Take Cut by illustrious chef Wolfgang Puck. This stylish steakhouse offers cutting-edge interior design and a sophisticated menu of the finest prime beef. But that's just the beginning. There's also Carnevino, an Italian-themed steakhouse by Chef Mario Batali, with an international wine list from winemaker Joe Bastianich; Morel's French Steakhouse & Bistro, a contemporary restaurant where traditional French cuisine meets the popular flavors of American cooking. Plus, you can experience an amazing evening of modern Brazilian/Japanese cuisine at SushiSamba or enjoy a delicious specialty hamburger with a variety of unusual toppings at i?burgers.Hungry yet? Hopefully because in addition to the aforementioned, world-class chef Emeril Lagasse opened the elegant Table 10 to showcase his distinctive Creole cooking. But, if you're mood isn't quite feeling a white tablecloth, guests can also check out the laid-back, party atmosphere in his sports bar, Lagasse's Stadium. Here Lagasse combines snack favorites with his bold culinary creations. At Lagasse's Stadium you will also enjoy plush stadium-style seating, skyboxes, an abundance of big-screen TVs, billiard tables and an outdoor patio just steps from the Strip as well.Speaking of casual eateries, check out Grimaldi's, the famous Brooklyn-born, thin-crust pizzeria for an anytime bite or try out the wide selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner items -- along with 20 fantastic desserts -- at the Grand Luxe Café.But wait, there's more! No, not more restaurants (we think The Palazzo covered every dining craving possible), but better yet, the bars.Since no truly epic story ever started with a salad, to get the good times rolling and to make them last, the Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar and the Fusion Latin Mixology Bar pour an array of decadent hand-crafted cocktails, beers and wines. In addition to The Salute Lounge, which features high-energy bands, and the Laguna Champagne Bar, which is perfect for more intimate mixing and mingling.And if you are the type who likes to arrive at a destination that will meet all of your requests for an all-encompassing experience, Lavo, a restaurant with a fusion of chic design and signature drinks, is certainly the place to be. Operated by the same people who created Tao Asian Bistro and Nightclub, it offers fine Italian cuisine and a sexy bar vibe. The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo has bragging rights for bringing Barneys New York to Las Vegas. The 875,000-square-foot Grand Canal-themed mall flows from the indoor canal at The Venetian all of the way to the Waterfall Atrium at The Palazzo and presents shopaholics with an exquisite lineup of approximately 160 upscale fashion, jewelry and lifestyle stores. And if you're one of those who likes to literally shop until you drop, make sure you drop in the vicinity of the hotel's five-acre pool deck. Situated on the fourth floor, the five-acre facility is merged with that of The Venetian. In total, there are seven different pools (including the adults-only Azure Pool), four hot tubs and 41 cabanas. Or guests can seek out a pampering experience at Canyon Ranch SpaClub- A tranquil sanctuary with a sauna, a steam room, more than 80 treatment rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness studio, a 40-foot rock climbing wall and a grill that serves healthy gourmet cuisine… oh there you go, more dining!Since it's adjoined to the gigantic 4,027-room Venetian, anything that's not at The Palazzo is just steps away, like Broadway-caliber shows, including "Rock of Ages."The Palazzo proudly and rolls out all the latest trends in retail, restaurants and luxurious living. Coexisting with Las Vegas' neon displays and non-stop action, guests can revel in it all in their own private room atop one of the city's favorite resorts.
