“Major Overhaul Required”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

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.

Service was OK
ELEVATORS DID NOT OPERATE WELL
Always found congestion at check in and Check out area. Needs a bigger Lobby.
Room I stayed had window broken and when called house keeping, no one responded
Room service needs menu update with more choices and broader timing.



Room Tip: Elevator service was poor

My expectations are somewhat low when traveling. However, when I first arrived at this property it was a nightmare. The valet line at 7 PM on a Friday were long - so why not self-park? It took almost a hour to find a parking space because of the limited spaces. When we checked-in, it took thirty minutes on the elevator to travel 15 floors. In fact, it appeared that only two elevators were working that weekend. Trying to stay positive I overlooked these flaws. Our room was decent with a great view of the Strip. Knowing that the check out line was going to be outrageous on a Sunday, I opted for the in-room video check-out. That was broken. Not a problem, I will go down to check-out. I took me quite some time to get down to the lobby, because guess what? The elevator stopped at every floor down. Okay, now I am going to say something at the front desk. Couldn't do that. The check out line was outrageous! Just dropped my keys in the express box and left. The pool was closed to a private event and was still charged for the resort fee. Truly disappointed with this property.

Room Tip: Simply ask the front desk.

The Flamingo hotel is a great spot. The staff is friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a coffee maker and refrigerator. The view of the strip was excellent. It was a busy week with the fight in town but we were still treated wonderfully. I would recommend this hotel to all. There is a pool and a wildlife habitat also.

The room was small and we were way down at the end of the hall, no view of the strip, but we were only there one night, Nice place to stay. We would stay here again on a future trip to Las Vegas if we find a good Total rewards offer.

The family pool was lovely. The chapel was a beautiful place to have a wedding. The garden stunning With the cascading waterfalls as a backdrop for wedding photos. The salon downstairs did a wonderful job with hair and makeup. It was a great time had by all.
