Bugsy Siegel's desert dream, The Flamingo, has anchored the Las Vegas Strip since they started rolling dice in 1946. This self-contained casino and resort offers everything an adventurous vacationer could want — including a Wildlife Habitat and a 15-acre Caribbean-style water playground. Set on the famous four corners of Las Vegas Blvd. and Flamingo Road, this hotel combines heart-pounding Las Vegas excitement with hospitality and service that's second to none.
Flamingo Hotel Las Vegas is a large—it has over 3,500 rooms—so it can be confusing, even when you have a map. However, the benefits of staying at Flamingo Resort far outshine that possible downside. The Flamingo is unique among Strip hotel and casinos in its long heritage and in the lush gardens behind the hotel towers. If you feel like immersing yourself in a natural setting and forgetting the sometimes frenetic atmosphere of Las Vegas, you can do it here.
The Flamingo is central on the Strip, so it easy to walk to other major casinos (or to the monorail) for sightseeing or to visit attractions and shows. At the end of the day you can return to Flamingo Hotel, where prices are usually cheaper than at mega-resorts.
The Flamingo casino is a little on the small side, so it gets crowded. Be sure to head to the casino a bit early if you want a hassle-free gambling experience. If you're in Vegas more for the entertainment, the Flamingo will hit the spot. The Second City comedy club makes its home at the Flamingo, and it is not the only entertainment option. With all the benefits, what's not to like about the Flamingo? It's certainly worth a visit.
