Orlando Perez was packing up his car after a night in Las Vegas and didn't notice that he had left his backpack sitting in the parking lot of the Luxor.
In it: his $13,000 Rolex. The 32-year-old Los Angeles man returned to the casino to have breakfast and take a final few shots at the craps table when he realized he'd lost much more than his chips at the table.
"I thought it was gone, but one of the employees said I should check with security," Perez said. "They had it."
A Luxor employee had found the backpack and turned it in — with the Rolex still in it.
"That's honesty," said Perez, a hospital appointment clerk for Kaiser Permanente. "It may have been a guy. It may have been a girl. I waited around and wanted to thank them. But I never got to whoever it was.”
One of the most iconic resorts on The Strip, the Luxor pyramid invites curiosity while the resort’s interior rewards visitors with equal parts excitement, mystery and intrigue.
This 4,405-room resort features a wide variety of entertainment including world-famous dance crew Jabbawockeez (spring 2013), the Cirque du Soleil production CRISS ANGEL Believe, the provocative adult revue, FANTASY, the hilarious comedy of Carrot Top, Menopause The Musical and the exclusive LAX Nightclub.
The property also offers a spa and salon, wedding chapel and inviting pool complex and is connected to Mandalay Bay through The Shoppes at Mandalay Place — a collection of unique boutiques and restaurants.
With a 120,000-square-foot gaming area, delectable restaurants and top-notch nightlife and entertainment, Luxor provides an unparalleled travel destination.
