LAS VEGAS, NV -- As it nears its fifth year anniversary, the Luxor Las Vegas resort has already earned top honors from some of the world's most discriminating travelers -- the readers of Gourmet magazine.

In their special "Rooms at the Top" section of the May 1998 "Hotel Issue," Gourmet reported Luxor Las Vegas as ranking among the top fifty U.S. resorts. This comprehensive readers' survey elicited responses from thousands of subscribers, who named their favorite hotels and then rated them according to fifteen criteria -- four of them food-related. The results were then broken down into 10 areas of the U.S., with Luxor Las Vegas ranking among the top five destinations in the Pacific Northwest & Mountain States category. The survey was conducted by Monroe Mendelsohn Research, Inc., an independent market research firm in New York.

"We are thrilled that the fine cuisine, luxurious amenities and high level of service we provide our guests has earned us this coveted recognition," said Vince Matthews, vice- president and general manager of Luxor Las Vegas. "This honor comes just as we approach our fifth anniversary in October, demonstrating that our mission to create a world class, all-inclusive resort is on target and on schedule."
