Featuring a 30-story black glass exterior topped with the world’s brightest light beam, the Luxor is one of the most recognizable buildings on the Strip. Opened in 1993, the hotel was originally designed with an Egyptian theme, but the theme was slowly phased out during a decade-long renovation officially announced in 2006. The third-largest hotel in the world, the Luxor offers 4,400 rooms and suites lining two towers as well as the resort’s iconic pyramid. Highlights include the 120,000-square-foot casino, celeb-frequented nightspots like LAX, and acclaimed shows such as Carrot Top and Cirque du Soleil’s Criss Angel Believe.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
