Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

Las Vegas. The name says it all. Vegas is a crazy place where anything goes. For my first adventure in Vegas I stayed at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino, centrally located opposite Caesar’s palace on the famous Las Vegas Boulevard Strip.

The FAB Deluxe Double Queen room was spacious, clean and modern thanks to its recent renovations. The great location of this Hotel is a major selling point, and there are endless meal and gambling options both within the casino or only a short walk outside. The views of the strip from our room were breathtaking and we also witnessed countless infamous Vegas weddings taking place below in the Casino’s garden chapels.

My favourite part of the hotel is their beautiful outdoor areas that include a tropical Wildlife habitat that is the home of their famous flamingos.

There is also a 15-acre Caribbean style water paradise with a pool to suit everyone!

During my stay the casino was mid renovation and there were many construction sites outside the casino which made parking and drop off areas quite confusing at times. The casino itself is also quite smoky in comparison to other casinos we visited during our stay in Vegas, but as a old hotel this is not surprising. However the hotel is reasonably priced and for its great mid-strip location I would recommend staying them as an option for your next visit to Vegas.
