Aug 29th, 11 am Vegas time - we left fl this am on SW, uneventful flight we checked in late thought perhaps our bags may be not arrive with us.. but low and behold they were first off! Arrived in LV pretty much on time 9am, grabbed our luggage and out to the cabbie line. It was short, we got a nice driver who to us the via freeway, after asking - he was very nice. Arrived at Flamingo about 9:30... pretty dead all around the cabbie was telling us how the place has been dead... We walked up to check in got in the line for rewards members and no wait! Nice older guy checked us in.. gave us a room on 25 the floor said it was quiet and wanted us to have a good view. Room would be ready at noon... no prob!!! So we gave our bags to bell desk... he said that no charge for rewards members to check in at noon... yippee.. OK -- off for now... check in later.
