We have been to Vegas many times and decided to try a new hotel and I have to say that after reading the reviews of the Flamingo, I was disappointed.
First the pros: Airport Check-in is a MUST! It saves A LOT of time. Good location on the strip and monorail. Players Club line was always short and ran smoothly. Casino was not smoky. Nicely renovated rooms and hallways (make sure you ask for one). The food was wonderful, especially the buffet.
Now the cons: Had to change rooms 2 times because we weren't in a newly renovated room at first and it was far from clean. The pool was extremely crowded and full of wild kids and guys trying to pick up anyone. There are only 4 pool cabanas for rent and they are always reserved so if you want one, make those reservations early. The walk from hotel rooms to anywhere was tremendous. Not much variety in the casino for it to be as large as it is. Plus parents hauled their kids through the casino like it was an adventure park.
The staff at the front desk doesn't appear to be happy at all, but you can find a someone willing to help you eventually.
After all our problems, we ended up with a nice room overlooking the Balligio and fountains, but we will stay somewhere else next time that caters more to the adult crowd.
