Lower budget in a great location
Posted Mar 27, 2017
I stayed here in March 2017 in the Habitat Tower. If Las Vegas was the United States, The Flamingo would be Florida.
Location - You're within walking distance of a good chunk of the strip. Plus they have a monorail stop for easy access to further locations. High Roller is nearby.
Pool and Habitat - I could see the flamingos and koi from my room. The pool is huge and tropically themed.
VERY quiet HVAC system - I hardly even noticed it being on.
Casino security is on it. They tracked me down after I left a voucher at the bar.
Good for those on a budget. Seemed popular with families.
Its out of date - Room furniture was old and banged up. Bathrooms were clean, but the counters are old school marble looking formica. The trim on my counter had fallen off leaving exposed plywood. No consideration given for charging mobile devices except in wall outlets. Elevators look like almost like service elevators, but signage said they're being updated.
Limited room service on weekdays.
It's nowhere near the level of the modern hotels on The Strip - In some casinos, you arrive and are wowed. At The Flamingo, you walk in off the Strip sidewalk. This is great for access to the room (again, location), but the crowd is your typical tourist out walking the Strip.
Resort Fees: No one likes these. No one.
Overall: Good for budget minded tourists who want to be in the middle of the strip that don't mind not being wowed by their home base.
