The Luxor, the great black pyramid on the Southern end of the Strip, is a nice hotel to stay in during your trip. It is easy to find and get to from the airport, however, if you want to see the main attractions of the Strip, be prepared to walk. That said, it's located next to Excalibur and Mandalay Bay, and the walk to both is easy.
I stayed in one of the Pyramid rooms, which means I got to ride in the Oscillator, which takes you sideways up the Pyramid. There are other rooms located in a separate building, which are normal hotel rooms. The room was spacious and clean, so it was worth the price.
The Luxor contains a nice casino in the "second floor" which is the lobby area. Below, there are shops and the Pharoah's Feast, which as far as buffets go in Vegas, is not really worth the price. Overall, the Luxor is a nice place to stay, if you want to stay in one of the theme Resorts on the Strip.
