I needed a place to crash for one night before my stay at the Wynn Las Vegas, so I decided to take advantage of my mLife Platinum status (for the last time, sadly) at the Excalibur. For $77 a night, including resort fee, it was a no-brainer!
A Review of the Excalibur, Las Vegas
I ubered from Las Vegas McCarran airport, which only cost $12 one-way. Drop off is not at the main entrance, but rather at the Royal Tower of the property. This requires a lot of walking to get to the main check-in area. Since I was a Platinum mLife member, I was entitled to check in at the VIP lounge, which was great! The agents inside were incredibly nice, and we were able to help ourselves to a few free beers while we waited for the formalities to be completed.
They were sold out that evening, so no upgrade for us, unfortunately. The weirdest thing awaite me in my made-up room. Above, you’ll notice Butterfingers, as well as some loose change and a slot machine payout ticket. This was all left by previous occupants, most likely a (very) late check out. Everything else in the room was cleaned. So strange!
I didn’t use any of the other facilities this trip (besides the casino), but I have used them in the past. The pool is usable, if a bit plain for the Strip. I love the location of the hotel, but that’s about where it ends. It’s old and dark, but it’s perfect for those on a budget on the Strip!
