Holiday Inn Flamingo Las Vegas-Room 320, Dates of stay 26-29 May 2011.
We arrived after 10pm so no free shuttle from airport. Taxi was about $15 with tip. Check-in with Jeff was easy. He changed our room from a king to two queens. There is no advantage being a Priority club member as there are no upgrades because there are only two types of rooms. The website mentioned executive floor but nothing such exists according to one of the front desk guys. We had breakfast included-not a $10 voucher as advertised but a coupon for an entrée and one drink (juice or coffee but not both). Room was ok with view towards vacant lot so quiet. A/C worked well, nice tv with limited channels. Comfortable chair with lamp in corner. Light bulb replaced in lamp between beds as requested. Bathroom nice with low tub-easy to step out of. Toilet didn’t always flush on first try. Shampoo, cream, soap provided and ok. Plenty of towels. Shuttle was ok and usually available but only to preset locations. We would take to strip and then wander back on foot. Usually stopped at Tuscany on the way back. Terribles nearby but very smoky because of poor ventilation. I won’t return there again unless staying within area. No complaints with front desk staff. For breakfast, try to get lady. One older man seemed bothered to serve and took 3 requests to get ice water. One younger guy was ok but lady was the best. We didn’t use the pool or exercise room but did print out boarding passes for our return flight. They stored our luggage since our flight wasn’t until 5 pm. Great shuttle ride to airport. Biggest scare was waking up at 3 am with no electricity. It was dark since there was no emergency lighting in room. Phone didn’t work so I used cell phone to call front desk (fortunately, I had called when we were to arrive late so number was still in recent call list) Nice lady said whole block was out but not sure why. I was a little concerned because who would notify us if we had to escape. No lights so there would be lots of people in underwear or less evacuating! After about 45 minutes, electricity came back on so just a false alarm.
One strong recommendation: The Envy Steakhouse at the Renaissance for Sunday brunch. $29.95 includes bloody Mary station, wines, and French champagne plus omelettes and other breakfast selections, prime rib, shrimp, oysters on half shell, split crab legs, cheeses, desserts, and more. A Liberace type piano player with several older women made even more special. Have the shuttle take you to the convention center and walk back. We took the shuttle to the Venetian and walked and walked but found it and had the best Sunday brunch ever. A definite must do on the next trip.
I would probably not stay here again unless I got a great rate or couldn’t get one elsewhere. Most staff were nice, hotel was clean, but location was not the best. Stay here if you just need to relax or want to get away from crowds. Shuttle makes a very positive statement if you don’t arrive too late to use it.
