While most families wouldn’t even think to bring their children to Vegas, you’d be surprised at how many hotels and resorts are geared toward the family experience. For example, at Excalibur, you can immerse the whole family in the fun of games and themed dÈcor. Yes, this entire hotel is filled with King Arthurian decorations and an exterior that looks like a genuine castle with colored flags, drawbridges, and a moat. You can’t help but get excited when you first walk up to the hotel as this really brings out the kid in everyone.
Though the Excalibur is working to tone down their themes, it’s still just a bright and fun for the children who walk in. You can see a virtual dragon and a wizard ‘battle’ it out in the front of the hotel or in recent years, attend a male stripper act. Things are changing at the Excalibur as more hotels try to lean toward a ‘no children’ tone. Will that eventually happen? Only time can tell.
Until then, Excalibur is open for family business with a large sprawling design that’s easy to become lost in. The casino is right in the middle of the large middle section, so you’ll have to walk through it to get anywhere, but it offers you plenty of slot machines to enjoy. You might also want to head to the Medieval Village where you can shop and eat at medieval themed restaurants. Most choose the Roundtable Buffet as it offers something for everyone in your group. You might also want to check out the Tournament of Kings dinner show.
There are two different kinds of hotel rooms to choose from right now ñ those that are original and those that have been updated. Both are fairly large in size to accommodate an average sized family. Nightly rates start out at $49 and up.
