I like Luxor. It’s a little over the top. It’s now a little more off the beat and path. They have great rates for the hot days of summer and they are very accommodatING.
The line waiting to check in is still an epic battle of patience. I almost made $20 by getting almost to the front of the line and then offering my spot for $20, but the gentleman in charge of “queue maintenance” was having none of it.
When we got to check in, we were very lucky to get a wonderful young woman from Chicago who was of Polish decent…my friends, whom I was with are Polish citizens. We hit it off right away and she was extremely accommodating and friendly.
Off to our suites to toss the luggage….I was up for a swim and it was only 6:30pm. But, as Iook out to the pool people are moving out…being directed out. This seemed odd. Note…I hadn’t been to Las Vegas for a stay in about four years…but it was a Sunday so I figured, ah…maybe the help needs a little break. Was I wrong.
Evidently, the latest fad in Vegas is the all night pool party…invite only…only the chiche’ and riche’ get to come and party the night away. I guess this is the trend now all over town…and it’s not just Sundays…the hotels have to make more money and monetizing the pool every night after 7p is exactly the way to do it.
I saw recently there was a fire near the Cosmopolitan pool. Clearly, I am not the only one who is disappointed with the pool hours in Vegas.
