The sphinxes and Egyptian pyramids of Luxor

The hotel is built inside a large pyramid, complete with a sphinx and ancient-Egyptian style buildings that help to reconstruct the atmosphere. It is among the largest hotels in the United States, with over 4000 rooms all housed inside the pyramid.

Among the twelve skyscrapers rebuilt on the facade of the hotel (the unmistakable Empire State Building) whizzes by a roller coaster (skyscraper roller coaster) on which, if you have the guts, you can take a nice ride.

MGM: the hotel dedicated to Hollywood

This is the hotel that takes its inspiration from the lion of the Metro Goldwyn Meyer (you know? The one that roars just before the movies start) and that boasts the largest number of rooms (over 5000). It was inaugurated in 1993 and has proclaimed itself as "The city of fun".


The hotel actually resembles a bustling city where thousands of guests and visitors cross their paths without ever stopping.

To inspire this structure is the romanticism of Paris with the tall Eiffel Tower standing out in front of the entrance and the romantic city districts inside. The property has 2.916 rooms and is connected to a partner hotel, the Bally, via a short internal walkway. Among the attractions stand out the spa, and a sort of shopping center rebuilt in the style of the Parisian streets of the 20s with shop windows and restaurants.

Caesars Palace: the glories of ancient Rome

In this case it is the opulence of ancient Rome to relive in the imposing hotel opened in 1966. The hotel is divided into five buildings, each with its own name: Augustus, Centurion, Forum, Palace and Roman. A few steps away you can see one reconstruction of the Colosseum (which actually has little to do with the original). It is a theater built in the early XNUMXs for a series of performances by Céline Dion. Over the years it has been the venue for concerts by other great singers such as Cher and Elton John.

Wandering around the hotel you will meet easily historical characters in costume and you will lose yourself among the many services: a large wellness center offering treatments of all kinds, a beautiful lounge bar on the terrace overlooking the complex, a full-service business center that rents cell phones and provides internet access, elegant gardens and swimming pools and a replica of Michelangelo's David (perhaps they got confused about history for a moment…).
