This architectural wonder stands out like a jewel in the desert on the Las Vegas strip. The Luxor’s 30-story black glass pyramid, modeled after the famous Egyptian structures, and the hotel’s towers mimic the splendor and beauty of the ancient world with a mix of modern technology. The spacious rooms are decorated in Eastern finery and surround the world’s largest atrium. Guests can also enter the hotel through the 10 story glass Sphinx to feel as though they have traveled through time to another world. The world’s most powerful light beam (a 42.3 billion candlepower ray), sits atop the pyramid. When this light beams up into the sky, it’s visible from 250 miles up in the air!
