Las Vegas, 2016 Hotel, The Flamingo

At the beginning of April, I went on a trip to Vegas with a group of about 12-13 friends. I took a few pictures and wanted to recap the trip here in a few installments. Starting with where we stayed.

TheFlamingo

We stayed right in the middle of the strip at The Flamingo which has a crazy 3,626 rooms!  Part of the hotel is remodeled (they are referred to as the GO rooms) and we stayed in one of those. We had a double queen bed overlooking the pool and the High Roller Ferris wheel. The Flamingo is part of Caesar’s, Harrah’s, Bally’s, The Cromwell, The Paris, Planet Hollywood, The Rio, The Linq and others (all under the Caesars Entertainment umbrella). If you stay at any of these properties I highly encourage you to get a Total Rewards card that you can use on all purchases and gambling at all properties to go towards points and discounts. No complaints with the hotel – check-in/out was a breeze, the rooms was always clean, had a little fridge and comfy beds. The location was excellent.

Besides the hotel and casino, the Flamingo has 2 pools, a spa, salon, shopping, wedding packages, restaurants (Center Cut Steakhouse, Paradise Garden Buffet, Margaritaville, Beach Club Bar & Grill, Carlos ‘n Charlie’s, and a food court with pizza, subs, etc.) and more. There are a few different bars on the property including Bugsy’s Bar. A little bit of trivia we learned is The Flamingo is named for Bugsy Siegel’s girlfriend Virginia Hill. He called her Flamingo for her long, skinny legs. Not sure if that is good or bad? Haha. And of course, you can find actual flamingos on site in the garden courtyard that has a wildlife habitat for the birds, fish and turtles. Shows at The Flamingo were a comedian, Donny and Marie Osmond and Olivia Newton-John.

The Flamingo is also a stop on the Las Vegas Monorail which was quite handy. We used the monorail a few times going as far north and south as it travels. You can certainly walk the strip but after a few days, your legs and feet will be wanting a ride.

I would certainly stay here again or recommend this property to anyone.
