First of all, this hotel is definitely located on one of the nicer parts of Las Vegas. My husband and I walked around in the morning to get breakfast & it seemed really safe. The hotel consisted of several buildings, which were a little hard to navigate. The buildings looked nice from the outside, the pool looked clean, and the landscaping was decent. Parking was convenient to our room. There were some bad things though. Whoever designed the hotel was clearly inexperienced and just shoved things wherever they would fit. There was only one elevator per building. Our room was allllll the way at the other end of the hall. The elevator is inside what appears to be an old closet. The beds were small for two people (only full size), but they were soft & comfortable. The room was huge! The bathroom had a tub (without a shower curtain) a walk-in shower, a nice long counter, and the toilet was in a small room with a separate door. The shower didn't have shelves for shampoo, shaving cream, face wash, etc. However, the 2nd day we were there, I got out of the shower and noticed bloody fingerprints on the back of the bathroom door frame.... I was scared after that. The food was EXPENSIVE. The only available Internet cost $13.99 a day and was dirt slow.
I recently spent two nights at the Tropicana for a reunion with old friends. Anyway the room was incredible! It was simply lovely. The casino itself is looking beautiful, especially the stained glass ceiling. The pool setting was to die for! They are in the middle in the middle of renovating, which appears to be coming along quite well. I believe when completed, it will be very nice for either an individual visit or a small convention. Rates were excellent. They need to have some classes on detail and customer service. One detail was while in the gym one day, there were no sanitary hand wipes. The next day there was no water. There was no way to change the tv channel from sports. The room was way too warm and could use some more ac. There needs to be one employee dedicated to this area. Other areas of customer service could use some training as well. While the customer service was not bad, it was far from award winning. Overall, I had a pleasant stay and for the money, it could not be beat! Would recommend it.
I stayed at the Luxor during a business trip for several days and the rooms were somewhat small, but well decorated and in good condition. My only complaint is with the lack of Wi-Fi access for my PC. One of the Luxor's webpages says that wireless access is available and lists Blackberrys, Treos and other devices that it supports. I had mistakenly assumed that I would have wireless internet access for my computer, but when I inquired at the front desk, several hours after checking in, I was told that the hotel doesn't offer Wi-Fi access and that the only way to get internet access for my PC was to pay $12 per day for an in-room ethernet connection. After running to an internet cafe for a few days, I later found that there was an unsecured hotspot near the Starbucks in the lobby of the Luxor, although this seemed to be owned by some other business in the area.
Excellent service. Turned up on time and my pre-packed gluten free breakfast and lunch were both good. comfortable journey in a comfortable vehicle. The day was a wonderful learning experience where I learned the history, geology and ecology of the places we visited - and in an academic depth and detail that I would never have expected from a simple day tour. This was due to the expertise of the guide, Ralph, who is punching way below his weight as a mere tour guide. His guidance and knowledge made the day a tour which I would highly recommend to anyone interested in more than surface detail. Also this guy's personality and patience deserves acknowledgement - well done Ralph and Casino Tours and Travel - I take pleasure in recommending both .
I always visit for their Carnival Buffet when I am in Vegas! It is absolutely excellent....so much delicious food you just can't choose where to start in the line! The wait staff is very attentive and you definately leave feeling like you got your monies worth! I suggest getting there early because it's no secret and the lines back up quickly! Because the hotel/casino is not directly on the strip, I suggest you also take advantage of the Parade in the Sky after your belly is full! It's definately fun and directly on top of the casino. It's definately worth seeing on your next visit to Las Vegas!
Drai's Afterhours is a beautiful establishment featuring a cozy, candlelit atmosphere. The staff is delightful and bars are fully stocked!! Bottle service is the best way to enjoy, and Drai's boasts a well-rounded bottle list, including Magnum bottles of Cristal and Dom Perignon Rose served with freshly sliced strawberries and homemade whipped cream. Most importantly, however, is the music: house music is played nightly by Drai's fine roster of globally known dj's. For those who love hip hop, the VIP bottle room is where it's at... Truly an experience in the finest that nightlife has to offer!
If you've ever been to a nightclub before and hated the fact that you have to go home when the club closes, then you don't have to worry about going home if you head over to Drai's Afterhours. They keep the party going till the sun comes up. With two different types of music a house room and a hip hop room, you get your blend of the music you want to hear. Drai's is definatly a place I like to party at if I don't want a fun night to end. It's the best afterhours club in Vegas.
Appreciate the great customer service receive for every visit I have come to Excalibur. They have great promotional rate offers as well as non-promotional rates. Like the casino especially Keno. Like the shops and restaurants as well. It is a well rounded hotel & casino to stay for newcomers or those who may not want to venture to far. To those of you wanting to try here and if finances allow get the rooms with a view of the strip you'll enjoy it. I am a repeat guest for about 3 years now. To Excalibur staff and management keep up the good work. AW-Cleveland, OH
Their wedding chapel was AMAZING! It was everything I dreamed of. Their employees (Cristina, Dominique & Ivory) were professional & thought of a lot of things I never did which prevented disaster! Price was decent, everything flowed wonderfully. Photography quality was phenomenal, was only upset that he (David) never got just my parents & I and my husband w/ his parents. There was only "all the parents & us" picture. :( Make sure you ask for what you want. It never occurred to me, everything goes by so quickly!
Every part of our trip with Palace Station has been Great. Make sure to check in to a Tower room and not a Courtyard room. They are newer, bigger and better. Its worth the couple of dollars and the comfort level is worth it. The Buffet is the Best price in all of Las Vegas. Lots of Good food at a affordable price. The Strip is the same food at 3 times the price. The game odds seem to be much better than the strip. Over all it's been a really Great stay
