The Flamingo Las Vegas is an iconic Strip hotel, known for its history with the mobster "Bugsy" Siegel, who built in in 1946. In the years since, the hotel has achieved the distinction remaining open and un-imploded–no small feat in modern-day Las Vegas. Far from leaning on its hotel laurels, the Flamingo has stayed busy over the past few years with property-wide renovations.Las Vegas Flamingo's GO Room — Photo courtesy of Flamingo Las Vegas
Remodeled rooms feature an updated color scheme that sneaks in the Flamingo's signature pink. The GO rooms were completed first, and in 2012 the FAB rooms became available. Room amenities have been upgraded, and include pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs, artwork, and wooden floors. With the Flamingo's terrific center-Strip location, guests can get rooms with great views of Las Vegas Boulevard. The Flamingo has long been a good choice for travelers looking for wallet-friendly room rates plus a great location. The newly renovated rooms now give guests extra value for their room dollars.
Throughout the rest of the Flamingo, other projects have added a new section to the casino and a new restaurant. The property's face-lift coincides with the new development next-door, the Linq project, which will be located between the Flamingo and the current Imperial Palace. Linq will include a 550-foot Ferris wheel, shopping, dining, and entertainment. The project is currently expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
