Now we are talkin’ Las Vegas Classic. The Flamingo was built by infamous gangster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. It was the first ‘European style hotel on The Las Vegas Strip (meaning it did not have the ubiquitous sawdust on the floor of the traditional Gamblin’ Halls of Las Vegas at the time.) Siegel designed the pool to always be in the sun, a very cool feature. It also was the first to feature A List entertainment, evening gowns and tuxedos. All of that is all but gone, they do, however, have real Flamingos. It is worth it to stop in and breath in the faint trace of yesteryear. Live it up you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!

On my visit to the Flamingo Hotel I really liked the atmosphere. The hotel seemed to have been renovated a little bit. The property seemed really bright and airy. From the time I entered the Casino I was greeted by warm smiles from the friendly staff.
The casino area seemed a bit bigger than I remembered, and I liked that the air in the casino felt crisp and clean. They had a lot of table games so I didn't have to wait to sit at a black jack table. The cocktail waitresses seemed to come around quite often which everyone at my blackjack table enjoyed. Even the people at my table seemed friendly as well and it was definitely a great night at the Flamingo.Recommended for:

The Flamingo is one of the old school Casino/Hotels in Las Vegas. Most of it's contemporaries have been torn down or are on their way down. Desert Inn, Stardust, etc.
Hilton bought it quite a while ago to add it to their huge flagship Hilton on the north end of the strip near the convention center (well at the time it was huge, now it is being dwarfed by new projects).
It has been remodeled and spruced up by Hilton, and now it really serves as a mid-level Casino/Hotel offering for Hilton in Vegas. Hilton has several large Condo/Timeshare properties now for non-casino vacationers, and the Hilton still serves as the flagship. But, a few years ago, Hilton sold this property to Harrah's Group.
As such, the hotel is nothing special for Vegas goers, and in this town where the hottest thing is whatever is the latest and largest, the Flamingo dwarfs in comparison.
Perhaps the best part of the hotel is the large tropical courtyard with its lush greenery. They do offer a lot of cheap room specials, so it isn't a bad choice for value travelers who still want some Vegas luxury, and don't want the riff raff in the next room that comes at the Circus Circus, Hooters, Stratosphere or Excalibur.

You can't beat the location and nostalgia of Flamingo. We never did find the live flamingos though we walked all over and asked numerous staff people for directions. I would have like to check out the pool but it's too cold for all that in December.

We Weren't Built on the Strip
The Strip Was Built Around Us
The Flamingo is one of the old school Casino/Hotels in Las Vegas. Many of its contemporaries (Dessert Inn, Sands, Stardust, etc.) have been torn down. Others like Circus Circus are dwarfed by their more modern and shinier successors. As such, this Hotel is nothing special for Vegas goers, and for folks like me, this is where the meeting was held, so why not stay here?
My upgraded Room (in the Spa Tower) was about $80. It was roomy, clean, and comfortable, albeit dated and in need of refurbishment. And at this price, there was no coffee in the room or anything else past the most basic of amenities. In hindsight, I should have maybe splurged and stayed somewhere fancier, but considering the short stay and my focused business purpose, I did just fine.
The Conference Center part of the Hotel was much better. The meeting rooms were comfortable and very conducive for business. The Lunch Buffets were fabulous and the service in this area was excellent. It was also nice to wander out into the outdoor green belt and view the Pink Flamingos, despite the John Waters flashbacks.
Gamblers also have their choice of the main casino areas or a separate Margaritaville area. I was a Good Boy in staying of this sort of activity or any subsequent search for lost shakers of salt.Recommended for:

Stayed here once eons ago. Still remember the super colorful hallways, and the weird way to walk to the pool. The $2.99 prime rib special was a hit with the family back then.
Fast forward to now. This place is old and well, not really worth visiting since they don't have $2.99 prime rib dinners anymore (semi-kidding). The casino floor is still good though for some low minimum table gambling.

Stayed here for three nights in a GO Mini Suite during a bachelor party. The GO suites are very nice but others in our group were in standard rooms and they were definitely dated. The hallways on the lower floors were in awful shape with the carpeting wrinkling up, creating trip hazards all over the place and just looking generally crappy. The casino has a good variety of games with reasonable limits but the low ceilings and the decor feel like they belong on Fremont Street. Adding to that feeling is the stretch of casinos around it: Bally's, Bill's (now a construction site), The Quad, Harrah's, Casino Royale ... not exactly for high rollers. It is easy to get across to Mirage, Caesars and Bellagio, though.
