Todd got this great shot during a recent road trip. Excalibur offers everything you’d expect from a Las Vegas hotel – from dining and entertainment, to non-stop Las Vegas casino action. Named for the mythical sword of King Arthur, Excalibur uses the Arthurian theme in several ways. Its facade is a stylized image of a castle. Until 2007, a wizard-like figure representing Merlin looked out from a high turret (since replaced by a figure advertising Dick’s Last Resort). Excalibur is situated at the Tropicana – Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The hotel is linked by overhead pedestrian bridges to neighboring casinos to the north (New York-New York, across Tropicana Avenue) and to the east (Tropicana, across the Strip). There is a free tram that connects Excalibur to its sister MGM Resorts International properties to the south, Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
