Excalibur Hotel and Casino is a Casino and Hotel positioned on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, in the United States (US). It is also operated by MGM resort international in the US.
Excalibur, named for the mythical sword of King Arthur, uses the Medieval theme in different ways. Its front is a stylized image of a castle until 2007; a sorcerer-like figure representing Merlin looked out from a great turret (since replaced by a figure advertising Dick’s Last Resort).
Excalibur MGM Resort
Excalibur is located at the Tropicana – Las Vegas Boulevard point of intersection. The hotel is connected by above pedestrian bridges to neighbouring casinos to the north (New York, across Tropicana Avenue) and to the east (Tropicana, across the Strip).
A free tram links Excalibur to its sister MGM Resorts International properties to the south, Luxor and Mandalay Bay.
Excalibur Resort Started
Dick’s Last Resort restaurant started at Excalibur in June 2007. Dick’s is known for its uncommon dining experience in which servants deliberately act unpleasant towards guests. Employee “Taco” is considered Dick’s mascot and entertains visitors with his own interpretation of The Bellagio fountain show using water dispensers behind the bar.
Excalibur’s food court housed one of the several McDonald’s in the world to vend Pepsi instead of Coke until the restaurant closed in early 2016.
Excalibur Resort Plan
Excalibur was planned in line with the “theme resort” plan famous among several Excalibur casino operators during the 1990s, which added the traditional Las Vegas gaming experience coupled with family-oriented elements.
