“New Fab rooms are "almost" just that - FAB!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We were lucky enough to be able to squeeze in one last trip to Vegas this year, and gambled enough last time to earn a comped room at a few select Harrah's properties. We had our choice of Imperial Palace, Rio, or Flamingo. We like Rio, but being off the Strip is a hassle, even with their free shuttle to the Strip. When we looked at room options at the Flamingo, we saw we could choose from a Deluxe room, or a Fab Deluxe room with a Strip view. After a quick Google, we learned that a Fab Deluxe room as a newly remodeled room that wasn't supposed to be available until the beginning of 2012. We figured, why not?

We booked 3 free nights in the Fab Deluxe room, hoping it's what we really ended up with, since the stock hotel pictures online looked pretty nice. And how much time do you spend in the room anyway?

Our flight was delayed, so we ended up checking in close to 8pm. We tried to check in using the stand-alone computers in the lobby, but couldn't (I'm guessing since the room was comped?) At the check-in desk, they couldn't accommodate our King request, but we did end up with a Fab Deluxe room.

The room was really nice, and looked almost like the stock picture, except the walls weren't pink, they were a nice medium beige. The fake hardwood floor was a nice change from carpet and the beds, although not Heavenly, were comfortable. Our view was from the Imperial Palace side of the strip, so from one end of the window we could kind of see the strip (Mirage, CP), and from the other end of the window, we could see the Hilton and the mountains. I would call it a Partial Strip view. It was quite a long walk from the elevators. Definitely not the location you want if you aren't up for walking too far.

The only thing about the room that didn't seem remodeled were the bathrooms. (Maybe they were, and they weren't much to start with). There wasn't anything wrong with the bathroom, it just didn't see to fit with the rest of the remodeled room. Plain white/off-white floor tile, one sink, low old-style bathtub and shower curtain. The water pressure and temperature were perfect, though.

As for the rest of the hotel - it was fine. Easy to get a slot machine, even though there were alot of people walking around, in all age-ranges. We saw older people, bachelorette parties, and couples with kids.

We only ate a Johnny Rocket's for a late night snack, and it was decent. Service was fantastic. Sodas/water in the hotel gift shop were pretty pricy - it was cheaper to get a soda out of the vending machines near the guest rooms. Stop somewhere else like Walgreens/ABC store if you want snacks/drinks.

Great location mid-strip, and a quick walk to Ceasars Palace, O'Sheas, Bellagio, and just slightly longer to Paris, Planet Hollywood, Venetian. Easy to get a cab if necessary.

Would I stay here again? If the Deluxe Fab room was comped - yes. If the Deluxe Fab room was at least $100 less than staying at a neighboring property such as CP or PH = yes. If the prices were close PH, probably not - their rooms are huge and we really like that property (see my other review).

If it was full price and we could get comped at Rio - probably not. That's extra gambling money! But the Fab rooms are worth a try if you can get a decent price. We're glad we tried it.

Room Tip: If you have problems walking long distances, ask for a room near the closest elevators. The elevato...

We booked a Go Deluxe room at the Flamingo Hotel for our first trip to Vegas. The lines to check-in can be long, but we were pleasantly surprised to find out upon check-in that we had been upgraded.

It's what everyone hopes to hear when checking in to a hotel, but what we heard next was even better "Oh, it's not a small upgrade either."

Opening the massive double doors to the Cosmopolitan Suite was a complete surprise. The combined lounge/dining area was huge, with stunning furniture and the most incredible view of the mountains. The sunset over those mountains is just exquisite!

The bathroom had a generously sized shower, a spa bath, his/her sinks, and a television within the mirror. There are two toilets located in this suite.

The bed was plush, and massive with clean, crisp linens. If it weren't for the excitement of the Strip I could have easily spent days in that bed.

I also adore the pink/brown decor of the rooms. Everything was perfect.

The GO pool was closed during our stay for what I understand was due to the cold, strong winds experienced at the time. The all ages pool was open, however make sure you head to the pool in the earlier half of the day to catch the sunlight.

The only disappointment was the Wi-Fi. It's is not cheap, and you will be charged per device.

I will definitely stay at the Flamingo Hotel again!

Room Tip: It is my understanding that the cheaper rooms are not worth it. Definitely go for a Go Deluxe or bet...

We stayed here while they were renovating, had a regular deluxe room, heard the Go room is better but we had our room comped at no charge so didn't bother paying extra for the Go room, as room is not that important to us, as long as clean etc we are happy. We usually stay at Imperial Palace but tried Flamingo for our first time since we mostly gambled at flamingo last trip. We love this location, centre strip, our room faced right across from Caesars Palace, great view (see pic). Our room was on 16th floor, no fridge (they wanted $15 extra per night for a fridge), our room was spacious, no problems at all, had safe in room. Not too far from Casino which is nice, some hotels have you a mile away from casino and strip entrance. We ate just at the fast food places they have there, and mostly played in the poker room, excellent drink service, great poker room with lots of tables active. We will definatley stay at Flamingo again, suits all our needs, I have attached photos of our room but remember these are now old rooms as they are currently renovating all rooms to laminate flooring, flatscreens etc.....

Went with a group of buddies so we weren't overly concerned with getting a fancy room. However we were surprised at how nice & clean the room was. Picked this hotel based on the great location & it didn't disappoint. Didn't really stay in the room much but it was more than acceptable. Casino environment was pretty good as well...a lot of fun on the floor. For being an older casino it really looks good.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade when checking in or a Go room.

Love the Flamingo....great location, great room, great view! We've stayed here many times and it never disappoints. This year we were comp'd for our room and upgraded to a "GO" rooom. We love those "Go" rooms. Everything was very nice, the carpet was a little stained and the couch thing in the room had a couple stains on it but we don't spend too much time in the room and it's an amazing location. The shower's are great in the Go rooms, lots of hot water and lots of pressure. Will definately stay again, we had a great room, near the elevator (a plus!!) and it was nice and quiet.

We were booked into the go rooms with a view but the view turned out to be the parking lot so we changed.The new room was centre strip but that was all that was good.The carpet was disgusting ,the sink and tub were rusting and there was mold.The mattresses needed to be replaced and the bottom sheets put on the mattresses didn't cover the mattresses.
The hotel was busy and the line ups at the front desk were always long,Once in your room guest services (EX405) were very helpful.
There were many young people at the hotel and although they were crowded into rooms around us they didn't cause us a problem.
We wondered if the other hotels in this hotel's group had been allowed to also fall into disrepair .We e-mailed the hotel to express our concerns but did not receive a reply.

I got married at Flamingo Garden Chapel and also stayed for 6 nights in a Go suite, we had an amazing time, didn't have any problems with cleanliness or service it was all fantastic. Our family also stayed (not in a Go suite) and all their rooms were clean and well maintained, even the smoking rooms.
The location is excellent and plenty of places to eat etc within the Flamingo.
Couple of slight issues, there is some construction so part of the casino was boarded off, and I found the spa could have been improved, had a spray tan and the room was bad, trailing wires etc!! But I loved the Flamingo and will be staying there on our next holiday : ) x
