How does the idea of sideways elevators grab you? Or pyramid-shaped windows in the rooms? Everything’s a kick at this Tut-meets-21st century hotspot, and you get the exotic theme at a great location for the right price. Play a little black jack along the edge of the faux Nile with reeds and plastic obelisks. Take in the hydraulic motion machine adventure ride, which is still one of the best around. Rooms at Luxor are large for the city and full of upper Nile atmosphere. The pyramid rooms are best, but standard rooms are very comfy as well.
