Excalibur is a medieval themed hotel and casino complex that is owned and operated by MGM (3850 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109). It was opened in 1990 to great fanfare. It formerly had an image of a wizard outside the front of the resort which has since been replaced. It features almost 4,000 rooms and covers a massive 100,000 square feet on the casino floor. It’s one of the most impressive looking casinos on the strip. The castle design looks almost as though it has come from a Disney movie. It uses the mythology of King Arthur and Camelot in order to add some mystique to the location and it works very well. While it might not feel as serious as some of the other casino resorts on the strip, it’s without a doubt one of the most striking and is definitely one of the most interesting.
