Photo Review of the New Widescreen Rooms at Excalibur

Excalibur Widescreen Rooms Review

The Widescreen room advertised two Sealy pillow top mattresses, which, to my surprise, were incredibly hard and uncomfortable. I had no trouble sleeping, but it was a serious downgrade from TI's Elite SensaTIonal beds. One of the comforters was already ripped, most likely by an out of control three year old who had too many doughnuts. The two beds were nice and high off the ground, with the standard number of pillows, a huge (uncomfortable) hot dog pillow, and padded headboards. Nothing special. No reading lights, no throw blanket, no extra pillows. I expected the beds to be decorated with more than just a large pillow. But then again, this is Excalibur, not Bellagio.

The nightstand had an ok looking corded phone and an alarm clock with "iPod" inputs. They put one auxiliary jack in the alarm clock and call it "iPod compatible." Smooth. The Excalibur branded pens and writing pad were nothing above average.

That horrible hanging lamp has got to be a leftover from the old rooms with a new shade on it. And you're right, that dresser the flat screen is "on" looks beat up.
But this is definitely a step up for Excalibur. I used to stay there when I was a teenager with my family and we always had the old crappy rooms.

I've stayed at Excalibur many times over many years and can't argue with some of the reviewer's comments, but I feel that the reviewer is a bit too critical of this hotel. For someone who in not interested in "Five-diamond luxuries" and the price that goes with them, I feel the Excalibur's new rooms make for a nice hotel. As for the bathrooms, I've always liked the extra large shower and the tile has never been an issue.

Last month, I had another opportunity to stay at Luxor (tower room), which I do occasionally, and I always feel the Excalibur's rooms have the edge on Luxor's even though the general ratings show the Excalibur below the Luxor.

Excalibur is by no means perfect, but if you are looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced place to stay, give it a try.

I agree, I was a bit too critical on Excalibur, but then again, I'm too accustomed to the Wynn's amenities. But for the price, the rooms are great, and as I said, they beat most of the non-renovated rooms in the older hotels.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, pick on them all you want, I'll take it for $27 a night. I will even put up with the snob at the desk.

Other than time at the pool or at the (generally friendly) bars, I will be spending my time ($) elsewhere.

Gotta save for those fried twinkies. :
