Traveled to the Flamingo Las Vegas October 2014 with a group of friend for what was ostensibly a stag. In reality it was an excuse to repeat a great trip with the same group of guys back in 2010. Although the Flamingo seemed a little worn out back then, this time it felt downright decrepit. Fortunately our room was recently renovated. That and a great pool is the end of any quality this hotel & casino has to offer. Everything about this place seems worn out. The casino stinks of carpet fresh and stale cigarettes and the hallways look like they haven't seen fresh paint or carpet in decades. Despite a plethora of security cameras in the casino and lobby areas, I counted not one in the guest areas like the hallways and elevator areas. The safety and security of guests does not appear to be a factor at the Flamingo. Which brings me to the elevators. The closest experience I've had to the elevators at the Flamingo is Disney's Tower of Terror. Precipitous drops, doors opening before the elevator has arrived at the floor, finding the selected floor, stopping inexplicably, and a floor selection panel that seems to flash to some unheard music and then loose all the selected floors. In this case I don't just blame the Flamingo but also what ever licensing body that governs elevator maintenance and repair in the state of Nevada. I fear the next time I hear about this issue will be on the news. I also have to mention the piddling charges on check in. Maybe it's common at other hotel/casinos but it sure starts your experience on a bad note.
I find all this unfortunate. The Flamingo has to be one of the best locations on the strip. Great access to the mono rail, right nest to the Linq and High Roller and a bar right on the strip. Half the entertainment of Vegas is watching the show that is the people walking up and down the strip. This is a building with great bones in the center of the strip. What's need is an owner who can see the real value and potential of this building. Gut it rebuild it and have this bird emerge a Phoenix.
