Discover the days of yore on your Vegas vacation. The Excalibur endeavors to re-create the Middle Ages, a time filled with adventure and enchantment. Centrally located amid all the action at the southern end of the Strip, the storybook-like fortress boasts a drawbridge and moat. Other medieval touches can be spotted throughout the architecture and décor, such as turreted towers, stone columns, wood paneling and candle chandeliers.The Excalibur is perfect for families because they can let their young ones act like knights and fair ladies. The Fun Dungeon is among the themed activities. It's packed with carnival-style games. The expansive pool area has a thrilling waterslide -- as well as 17 decked-out cabanas for parents. After dark, everyone can attend the "Tournament of Kings," where they'll experience the gallantry and equestrian feats from one of the tales about King Arthur. The arena is spectacular, and in addition to cheering on your knight, there is a three-course dinner to be eaten with your fingers.Opened in 1990, the castle has undergone extensive "modernization" to appeal to singles and mature travelers without kids. Additional entertainment offerings are definitely geared toward grown-ups. Women will go crazy for the hot Thunder from Down Under troupe (the men strip off nearly everything onstage!). Plus, disco aficionados will revel in the rich vocal harmonies at "The Australian Bee Gees Show."Only a fabled resort can bring you dining beyond the ordinary. For gourmet fare, the Excalibur features The Steakhouse at Camelot. A Zagat Award winner, this steakhouse 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. Johnny Rockets serves favorites for breakfast, lunch, dinner including hamburgers, fries and premium ice cream shakes. Or grab quick, casual meals in the Castle Walk Food Court. Extremely large at 25,000 square feet, it's home to Schlotzsky's, Cinnabon, Hot Dog on a Stick, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, Pick Up Stix, Tropical Smoothie Café, Auntie Anne's Soft Rolled Pretzels, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Popcornopolis. (Note: The bountiful Excalibur Buffet is closed for remodeling but will reopen in January 2015.)The over-21 crowd will have a blast at Dick's Last Resort. It's perfect for nightlife-loving visitors. The bar and stage in there are always rocking, and when guests get hungry they can turn to a menu of pub grub complete with Macho Nachos, Mumbo Jumbo Chicky Wings and the Big Ass Burger. Or spend a high-energy night in the Octane Lounge, a classic rock bar with a display of custom-designed motorcycles. Among the signature drinks are the Blood, Sweat & Gears Cosmo and the High Octane Kiss, served by bartenders dressed in black leather.The resort's casino floor has also assumed a party-like vibe. 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. The Lounge, also located on the casino floor, features Miami all-girl band Dollface who perform a variety of music styles from pop to punk.Staying at the Excalibur is not about roughing it. Most of the rooms have been renovated and offer a contemporary take on castle-themed accommodations. The widescreen rooms come with granite countertops, 42-inch plasma TVs, pillow-top mattresses and iPod-compatible clock radios. Even the standard rooms are very comfortable with wood furnishings, cable TVs and hair dryers.Need a bit of pampering? Everyone can be a king or queen for the day at The Spa at Excalibur. Overlooking the pool area, it provides a selection of massages, facials, scrubs and wraps and uses Aveda products exclusively in its treatments.And romance never goes out-of-date at the Excalibur. The Canterbury Wedding Chapel is cherished by couples who wish to celebrate their big day traditionally or in medieval attire.If your family or friends are looking to get away from it all, the Excalibur promises endless activity for all ages -- while still being a child-friendly haven. With an ideal location on the Strip as well as a tram that connects it to the Luxor and Mandalay Bay, the Excalibur is a good-quality, value-oriented resort. In fact, if a trip to the real castles of England is out of your price range, then a visit here will more than suffice.

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.

There are luxury hotels, and then there's The Palazzo. Since opening in 2008, as a sister to the beloved Italian-themed resort The Venetian, it has become the benchmark for extravagance, impeccable service and hospitality. The resort is largest LEED-certified building in the world as well. During the construction of The Palazzo, some 70 percent of waste materials were recycled, diverting nearly 42,000 tons from the landfill. Numerous green initiatives regarding recycling, energy, water, air quality and cleaning products are also in place here.Located at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, this property commands stunning views -- especially for guests staying in the Prestige Suites, its exclusive concierge level on the 23rd floor. All of the accommodations, however, are suites and boast exceptional comfort. Elegant while expressing warmth through modern décor, the suites start at 720 square feet in size. They're all appointed with Egyptian cotton sheets, pillow-top beds, multiple flat-screen LCD televisions, a DVD player, an in-room safe and a private work desk with wireless internet access. In addition, the spacious bathroom boasts a 20-inch LCD television, a Roman tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower.When it comes to entertainment, there's nothing like "Panda!" This multi-faceted production, which is closing Dec. 30, 2014, comes from Beijing and features acrobatics, martial arts, music and dance. Among the talented cast are the China National Acrobatic Troupe and Shaolin Monastery Kung Fu Monks Troupe. A tribute show about Frank Sinatra called "Frank, The Man, the Music" will debut on Jan. 27, 2015 and star impressionist Bob Anderson.The restaurants at The Palazzo come 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. Then there’s Carnevino, an Italian-themed steakhouse by chef Mario Batali, with an international wine list from winemaker Joe Bastianich. Morel’s French Steakhouse & Bistro is 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.World-class chef Emeril Lagasse opened the elegant Table 10 to showcase his distinctive Creole cooking, but guests can also check out the laid-back, party atmosphere in his sports bar Lagasse’s Stadium. He combines snack favorites with his bold culinary creations here. There's 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. And a broad selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner items -- along with 20 fantastic desserts -- is available at the Grand Luxe Café.Pleasure seekers will find a fusion of chic design, state-of-the-art technology and signature drinks at Lavo, a restaurant and nightclub operated by the same people who created Tao Asian Bistro and Nightclub. With more than 20,000 square feet of space, it offers fine Italian cuisine, a sexy lounge and one of the most energetic dance floors in town. To keep the good times rolling at night, the Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar and the Fusion Latin Mixology Bar pour an array of hand-crafted cocktails. The Salute Lounge features high-energy bands, while the Laguna Champagne Bar is perfect for more intimate mixing and mingling.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 themed mall stretches from the indoor canal at The Venetian all the way to the Waterfall Atrium at The Palazzo and presents shopaholics with a dizzying lineup of approximately 160 upscale fashion, jewelry and lifestyle stores. If you need to escape to a place that inspires relaxation, head to the resort’s five-acre pool deck. Situated on the fourth floor and reminiscent of a Roman garden, the gorgeous 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, it boasts 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.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, such as "Rock of Ages."Defining the spirit of elegance and charm, The Palazzo proudly delivers 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 from a room atop one of the city's most revered resorts.
