The beautiful marble entrance with sparkling mosaics depicted the Eight Wonders of the World. The porte cochère featured smooth curves which mirrored the tower's dome and large lit "Landmark" logos adorned each side. The mosaics were removed around 1974. During the 1983 remodel, silver outriggers were added to the porte cochère and additional outriggers, which contained red neon lights, circled the outer perimeter between each outrigger.

Landmark's rotunda was used as the entrance of the fictional "Tangiers Hotel and Casino" in the 1995 movie "Casino". A large Tangiers sign was added to the front wall and a pillar was built into the entrance which matched pillars inside the Riviera casino (used for the interior scenes) so it would match the interior scenes aesthetically.
