It seems from the reviews on the Flamingo that I have read that it is a love-hate relationship. What to do!! Are the pools at the Flamingo heated?? I have a room booked at MGM but some of these reviews are tempting.....

MGM is a good hotel and has a large pool area with the lazy river. It is a HUGE property though ... lots of excellent restaurants to choose from. Easy access to NY/NY, Excaliber, Luxor and Mandalay Bay. A long walk to the central strip area though.

HOWEVER, The Flamingo is very, very central. Plus The Flamingo pools are very nice (lots of palm trees, etc.). Stayed with several gal pals for a long weekend in May at The Flamingo and had a fine time. The casino is older but not bad. You can very easily go over to The Bellagio, Caesars, Plant Hollywood to check out their stores and casinos from your base at The Flamingo.

We didn't stay in a GO room when we were there but we were in a very large (albeit un-updated) supposedly "executive level" room.

Based on my fairly recent experience at The Flamingo I would stay there again for its location and pools. Restaurants ... not so much. The other hotels have much better choices.

We've stayed at both. Monte Carlo had the nicer room; Flamingo had the better location.

Another vote for the Flamingo--nice rooms, great location, love the pool, and less expensive.

This post is old, but I wanted to share that I just recently stayed at the Flamingo and got a great mid-week rate of $30 per night! No resort fee at this hotel either. It rocks!
