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.

This was our first trip using Vegas.com. The discounted gift cards we purchased from Costco made a good deal an outstanding deal. Everything was perfect... I would definately use Vegas.com for my next trip to Las Vegas.

About one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip sits the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino. Sci-fi fans may remember seeing it bombarded by Martians in Tim Burton's 1996 cult film "Mars Attacks!"Opened in 1986, the mid-sized, 711-room resort may be a little rough around the edges but is still a cool classic in the city. The Gold Coast tends to attract an older clientele and caters to a mix of locals and visitors.The property retains the feel of a Victorian-style gambling hall. The front desk and lobby are quaint with a mixture of wood paneling and brass fixtures. The central gaming floor, on the other hand, is truly grand with a domed ceiling, eight elegant chandeliers, stained glass windows and hanging flower boxes.Although referencing the past in decor, its casino heralds the future. Guests can play 48 different table games here. They'll also discover more than 2,100 slot and video poker machines. Surrounded by 38 huge flat-screen TVs, the race and sports book is a high-tech facility with 30 interactive betting terminals. Plus, there's an expansive 720-seat bingo room upstairs, where eight action-packed sessions are called daily.Two of Vegas' favorite Asian restaurants can be found at the Gold Coast. The first is Ping Pang Pong, which may sound like a silly name but actually boasts a kitchen and graceful dining room that are serious about Chinese fare. Chefs prepare a multitude of specialty dishes from the country's various provinces. In contrast, the Noodle Exchange is a less formal eatery with a plentiful selection of broth, Ban Ban and stir-fried noodles for meat lovers and vegetarians alike.As befits a western-themed hotel, the Gold Coast has a traditional steakhouse, the Cortez Room. It serves a wide-ranging menu including perfectly seasoned and slow-roasted prime rib, Steak Diane, Chicken Oscar and Seafood Olympia.For casual dining, the Ports O' Call Buffet will take you on a culinary journey around the world. Or just drop in on T.G.I. Friday's, the chain restaurant that is open 24/7, for some mouth-watering pub grub.The intimate Gold Coast Showroom, swathed in timeless red decor, showcases a variety of acts including magic, live music and ballroom dancing. In addition, guests can try for a strike in the 70-lane bowling alley on the resort's second floor. It features state-of-the-art equipment along with bumper bowling for kids.A delightful freeform outdoor swimming pool, a fully stocked fitness center, a beauty salon and an old-fashioned barber shop round out the offerings at this charming Vegas property. And if Gold Coast guests want to get out and about without doing the driving, they can hop on a complimentary shuttle to the Strip and The Orleans.
 

When does the shuttle bus shut down to get back to the gold coast?

As of June, 2012, midnight was the last pickup.
