Mandalay Bay and Luxor Casinos, 2021Yes, we are all used to the history here for my posts, but... mainly these are casino/hotels at the end of the strip during the buildup in the 90s when themes were king.
ArrivalI drove south down I-15 to the Russell Road exit and turned left a couple times to the free parking at the Mandalay. Easy, no stress, clean lot.
The ExperienceThe Mandalay Bay struck me as a place where you want to eat. They have food places coming out the wazoo and all of them look nice. I would say if you're looking for dinner, here you go.
SummaryIf you're not looking to do much on the strip and are just wanting to hang out, swim and eat? The Mandalay is very aggressively priced for you to do that. With the airport actually right across the road, it's close, and Uber or the city bus is an easy option. Taxis will take you to California first then back to jack up the fares.
If you are looking into a more activities-based trip, like shows and displays, the Luxor is also very well priced. They are connected, you can stay in either. A 4 Seasons and Delano hotel are connected to all of them if you want a real luxury hotel experience in the complex.
I think I'm going to look at this area next time around, even if they are not Marriott properties.
