If you stay at the Luxor hotel you'll always easily be able to find your way back to it no matter how directionally-challenged you are. Not only is its distinctive pyramid shape one of the most recognizable landmarks in Las Vegas, all you have to do is look for the world’s strongest light beam shooting up into the sky from the top. It's so bright that on a clear night, it's visible up to 275 miles away by airplanes at cruising altitude.When the Luxor opened in 1993, it proudly touted an Egyptian theme with things like a Nile River ride and a replica of King Tut's tomb. Today, you'll still see replicas of Cleopatra's Needle and the giant sphinx outside, but Luxor has traded most of its Egyptian roots for a hipper, more high-energy vibe.Luxor is one of the most unique places to stay in Las Vegas. There are 4,400 rooms and suites housed inside the pyramid and two 22-story towers. If you're staying in the pyramid, check out the Luxor's version of a thrill ride. You'll have to reach your room by "inclinator," an elevator that travels along the inner surface of the pyramid at a 39-degree angle. We're willing to bet you’ve never had an elevator ride like this before.There are plenty of ways to get your party on at Luxor. Start out at Flight, a bar with cocktails, beers and inexpensive shots. It's a great pre-game before clubbing at LAX, a two-story nightspot for the hip-hop and Top 40 crowd. If you want something a little more laid back, the lobby bar, Aurora, is open 24 hours and serves contemporary cocktails. Just look for the cool lighting effects on the ceiling that mimic the Northern Lights.Luxor has dining options that will satisfy just about every taste. T&T (Tacos & Tequila) features a combination of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and a rock 'n' roll atmosphere. Our advice: stop in on Sundays for the Mariachi Brunch and kick that hangover with specially priced margaritas and bloody Marias. Those with gourmet tastes will enjoy a good steak or fresh seafood at Tender. On the go or traveling with kids who are picky? There’s also a food court with fast food favorites.There's enough entertainment and attractions at Luxor to keep everyone happy. Guys will love the sexy ladies of "Fantasy" and hilarious prop comedian Carrot Top cracks everyone up. Your teenager will dig the hot urban dance crew Jabbawockeez, who perform in the show "PRiSM.” And magic lovers will be mystified by "Criss Angel Believe." Cirque du Soleil joined forces with the "Mindfreak" magician to create this show filled with illusions.Guests of all ages will want to explore Luxor's two museum-quality exhibits. "BODIES...The Exhibition" illustrates the inner workings of the human body by showcasing real bodies and organs. Sounds like it could be a bit gruesome, but it's actually really fascinating. "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition" tells the story of the doomed ship through a display of authentic artifacts and some eerie re-creations of the Grand Staircase, the Promenade Deck and a first-class cabin. Plus there is a 15-ton piece of the ship's hull (the largest piece ever raised from the wreck) on display. Guests at Luxor can also easily take advantage of amenities at either Mandalay Bay or Excalibur next door. Mandalay Bay and Luxor are connected by The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, which houses unique shops and restaurants. A free tram also provides easy access between all three hotels.There are dozens of ways to stay busy at Luxor but maybe your vacation is all about relaxing. They've totally got that covered too. Four large pools, a whirlpool and 12 private cabanas make up the Luxor's five-acre pool area. There's also a spa where you can be pampered with an array of treatments.

Good enough for a quick stay at the right price

Luxor is by no means one of the Strip's premier hotels but it works if you don't have high expectations. Stayed in a Tower Room. Seemed slightly bigger than pyramid room. Nothing great but if you're paying $60-$80 it's fitting. Check in was good and location is great. Overall, good enough!

Check out a photo of The Signature at MGM Grand. Take a good, long, hard gander at it. This is what a sophisticated Vegas getaway looks like.Soaring 38 stories high, these three graceful towers stand like giant gold exclamation marks near the massive 5,044-room MGM Grand.However, The Signature isn't the kind of place that lingers in the shadow of a megaresort. Showcasing its own bold style, it offers a vacation experience to be envied.Of course, if you stay in any of The Signature's three identical towers, you'll have access to all of the nonstop excitement and entertainment at MGM Grand...just with a little breathing room.It typically takes less than 10 minutes to walk from the farthest Signature tower to MGM Grand. The towers are all linked together and connected to the mega resort via moving walkways.But we digress...let's get back to what can you expect while at The Signature.It's a nongaming, nonsmoking, all-suite resort. That means there'll be no noisy slot machines and no clouds of smoke hovering about. And the staff will bend over backwards to assist you.The accommodations are condo-style with either one or two bedrooms and small kitchens. Most of the suites offer private balconies. You'll have incredible views of either the Las Vegas Strip or the surrounding valley (and from some suites you can actually watch the planes take off and land at McCarran International Airport).Each tower has its own heated outdoor pool -- and as a guest of The Signature, you can swim at the Grand Pool too. You'll find a gift shop, a Starbucks and The Lounge, a swanky place to enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail, in the first tower. The first and third towers contain fitness centers. The second tower is home to a deli called Delights that serves a lot more than sandwiches (you can get a good skillet scramble for breakfast or one of several different pastas for dinner).Then again, The Signature boasts such an incredible in-suite dining menu, you may not want to go out to eat. Available around the clock, it features items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, appetizers, snacks and desserts as well as bar selections. You can even request a box of handmade chocolate truffles or an artisan cheese spread be delivered.And, as mentioned earlier, anything that The Signature doesn't have, MGM Grand does. With the additional dining, entertainment, nightlife and shopping opportunities just a short stroll away, The Signature offers the best of two worlds: luxurious accommodations fit for a VIP combined with all the action of Sin City. This a place to stay that doesn't feel like Vegas, except when you want it to.

Really nice if you're priority is quality on a budget!
PostedNovember 6, 2012
The Signature is a great place to stay if you're looking for quiet quality and you can handle about a 10 minute walk to the MGM Grand Casino. It is usually priced right and the service is top notch. The rooms are well above average and the bathroom is awesome. I will be back.

Do any of your rooms have two queen beds?

All of the rooms are king bed with a pullout sofa bed.
