The Luxor To Get De-Egypted
The latest Las Vegas hotel to get a makeover will be the Luxor. As the Las Vegas Strip moves away from the its more theme park-like phase, the Egyptian theme of the Luxor seems a bit dated. Of course when your hotel has a giant pyramid it's a part of a challenge to stray from the original game plan. Nevertheless, the change is on. The pyramid and the beam of light will stay but the Egyptian theme inside will be toned down. Some changes are already underway such as the transformation of the Egyptian-themed RA nightclub being replaced by the soon-to-open LAX. The Egyptian-themed restaurants and shops are gone and according to this KVBC article, a possible name change, to The Pyramid, was even floated around.
