Las Vegas Excalibur Hotel Mini Guide
Where can I Find the Magical Excalibur Hotel?
The address of the hotel is 3850 Las Vegas Boulevard South and it’s found on the intersection with Tropicana on the part commonly called ‘The Strip’. Driving along the strip, you’ll find it hard to miss with the towers and turrets making it look like a Disney castle.
How do I get to the Excalibur Hotel?
Flying in, you’ll land at McCarran Airport, Las Vegas’ international airport, only five miles from the city centre. Access is easy with the direct route from the airport to the hotel taking about 10 to 15 minutes. There’s a choice of ways to get there but make sure that they’re air-conditioned, especially in summer when the days are almost always over 100 degrees.
What is the Hotel Like?
The hotel has a magical feel to it with the façade set up as a medieval castle. The interior follows a similar theme and is a firm favourite with children.
What is Dining in the Hotel Like?
You can dine in style there or you can choose delicious burgers, a food court or an ‘all you can eat’ buffet. The highlight of a stay there is the restaurant 'Dick’s Last Resort' where, a la Fawlty Towers, guests ‘enjoy’ a meal whilst being teased and insulted by their host, Dick, and his sidekick Taco. Such is its popularity that you will need to book well in advance to get a table.
What About Entertainment?
There’s the huge casino that everyone associates with strip hotels but there’s also great entertainment elsewhere in the hotel with, for the ladies, ‘Thunder From Down Under’, a male strip show, and for everyone, the Tournament of Kings, where in the style of days of yore, knights, dressed in suits of armour and bearing their lady’s favours, mount chargers and joust (almost to the death!). It’s noisy, exciting and sometimes scary but great fun. You can also see regular concerts; currently showing is the Australian Bee Gees tribute band.
Can you rent a car from your hotel in Vegas?
Yes, car rental is available directly from the following hotels in Vegas;
Boys and girls who dream of being knights in shining armour or damsels in distress would love to stay at the Excalibur. From the eye-catching façade looking like a cross between a Disney castle and a French chateau, to the continuation of the theme inside, you’re sure to have such a good time, it too may become legend.
Tournament of Kings’, a permanent show there, begins with a medieval banquet with food served by wenches and eaten without cutlery. A medieval jousting contest follows, set out exactly as it would have been done hundreds of years ago.
