The rooms have been renovated and the entire property has slowly gone through a transformation. New restaurants, great shows, and a sprawling pool area make the Flamingo Las Vegas the type of place you'll stay at over and over. Carlos 'N Charlies is open with a lively back patio and you know that Parrot Heads love Margaritaville.
What to Expect at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
The Flamingo Las Vegas with over 3500 rooms seems a bit confused when you look at a resort map but you can overlook that because for the price you get a center strip hotel that has all the amenities that the mega resorts have.
Wait, the new FAB rooms are a must see at the Flamingo Las Vegas. These rooms might make you a regular in the middle of the Las Vegas strip.
The Flamingo Las Vegas is where the modern Las Vegas era began and it is still visible in a casino that is right up against Las Vegas Blvd. Plush gardens have sprouted behind the large hotel towers and you'll encounter wildlife that is different than the spring break crowd. Walk among the ducks, the fish and of course the flamingos and forget you are right on the Las Vegas strip

What You Might like at the Flamingo Las Vegas
The location is perfect for walking to all the major casinos and the monorail. The newer towers at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino have inexpensive rooms that offer space and updated décor. The older towers look a bit more worn, however; they are usually cheaper as well (NOTE: Recently renovated).
The pool area is large and easily competes as one of the best on the strip and it has a separate family area where kids have access to the slides without the beer can holding patrons competing for space.
What You Might not like at the Flamingo Las Vegas
The Flamingo Casino is small and on a busy night, it’s possible that you might not find a blackjack table.
There will be a long wait to check-in and then you must make your way through a maze of corridors to get to your room. The room though usually is nice and affordable. The limits at the tables are not absurd.
Suggestions for the Flamingo Las Vegas
It’s not the real thing but Margaritaville will give you a sense of being stranded on the Florida Keys with nothing but alcohol and music. Spend an afternoon there and enjoy the art of doing nothing. The pool area will keep you in the sun for longer than you thought possible and the wander just out the doors and the LINQ entertainment complex will dazzle you with bars, restaurants, and the High Roller observation wheel

Rooms at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino: 3600+ rooms in what seems like 12 towers but really is only three. A general rule to follow is the newer the tower the bigger the room and the better the accommodations. However, prices do go up with the quality. The décor is right on the cusp of tacky Las Vegas and I love that. Prices generally are just below $100 per night. However, if a big convention is in town the prices go up to around $150.
It is not unheard of though to get a weekday rate of around $70 per night.
