If Don Draper from the hit show Mad Men popped into Santa Rosa, he'd probably park himself in this 1950s-style resort just beyond downtown; the rooms have been updated since the property opened in 1957, but they've still got high ceilings and that old-school flair. The iconic throwback is a vertical marquee with Flamingo emblazoned in neon letters. The hotel's restaurant is a hot spot for a power lunch, and the lounge hosts epic karaoke sessions on weekends. And how about this for retro cred: back in the day, Jayne Mansfield partied at the Flamingo.
