Flamingo Las Vegas Review

This elaborately landscaped, pink, classic-era resort with a 15-acre pool complex is still one of the best in town choices in town, and "Go" rooms (which run about $50 to $100 more per night than standard rooms), with MP3 docking stations and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, are downright stylish. Be sure to check out the on-site wildlife area, complete with a koi pond and, naturally, a flamboyance of flamingoes. Another big attraction: the Margaritaville-themed casino-within-a-casino.

    Flamingo Las Vegas Review

    I recently attended a conference which was held at the Flamingo. I stayed in a Go room, which was nice. The bed was very comfortable. The room is done in a modern style. However, they missed the mark in a couple of areas. First, the bathroom has a sliding glass door, which does not close completely. I like a little more privacy. Also, there are no hooks for towels, robes, etc. - which was inconvenient

    The hotel facility is a bit tired compared to some others nearby. That said, our stay was comfortable and being in the same hotel as my conference made it very convenient. Just be aware that it's not an elegant atmosphere - ex. music at the pool is VERY loud.

    Very Disappointed

    My wife and I love Las Vegas and would take 1 or 2 trips a year before we had children. One of our favorite places to stay was the Flamingo. We even honeymooned there! It had been 9 years since we had been there when we had the chance to go this June. Since it had been so long I did my research because I knew so much had changed. I checked out Fodor's 2008 Las Vagas Guide from the library. This guide was way too generous to the Flamingo. So was the Flamingo website. We were shocked at how worn the Flamingo has become. They have not maintained it well at all. Fodor's listed it at the top for Pool Scene. It was a great pool when we went 9 years ago but now it is dirty and not maintained well. We had to change rooms 3 times just to get an acceptable room. Finally we got a GO room that was very nice, but they made us pay extra. The Flamingo as we knew it does not exist anymore.

    What a dump!

    WOW-what a dump. The only way they could "REDO" this place would be how they did the Sahara-implode it. Rooms are old and tired, decor is vintage 60's trailer park and service is just sad. Food is as sad as the rest of the experience.
