    1st time staying at Flamingo if you don't count a Saturday nite only about 12-13 years ago. Curious what your suggestions would be on a room location. We have reserved a Go Deluxe and are Diamond checking in with other Diamonds and 1 - 7 Stars cardholders. Know it will be crowded for the holiday but we are checking in on Sunday 12/28so may be ahead of some of the crowd. Thinking the noise from Cromwell may not be an issue except for NYE with the pool being closed. Can anyone suggest a location we might ask for upon check-in? Not sure if strip view is the way to go with the ads that cover some windows. Wonder if a High Roller view might be better....we are very unsure and thought I would ask some of our experts on their thoughts! Thanks....

    The GO rooms I stay in are on the 26th floor and above, those are above the window advertising so the view is awesome. The noise from the Cromwell is ridiculous, I was at least half way down the length of the Flamingo and could still hear the boom boom boom base. You shouldn't have that problem in the winter, I will be there the same week as you and am counting on that, although I will say I slept right thru it. The Flamingo rooms are so right-on-the-strip, and with the floor to ceiling windows, you will have a fabulous view. Main priority is above the 25th floor to get above the ad wrap.

    Ohh oh, I stayed In a flamingo go room about 1.5-2yrs ago. Lots of noise now with the Cromwell?

    And have regular rooms been renovated? Or go rooms the most modern in there?

    Thanks

    OMG yes! My room overlooked Caesar's at the front of the property and was probably about half way down the property and I could still CLEARLY hear the boom boom boom base from the Cromwell pool party. The diamond check-in person told me the rooms I usually stayed in, those that overlook the fountains and Bally's/Paris had the worst noise with lots of complaints, but I could still really hear it in my room even on the 26th floor. On the Sunday night, I looked hard to my left and there wasn't a single person in the Cromwell pool area at all, but the music was just as loud. I will say it didn't keep me from sleeping at all.... I take a couple of sleeping pills each night in Vegas (mainly so I forget there's a casino downstairs.. LOL) and those do help.

    I also had problems with the wireless service in that room, so my host is moving me further down the property during my Dec trip. I was glad to be further from the Cromwell, then remembered it's December, I'm sure there won't be pool parties then! Dang.

    As a note, I stayed in the Go Rooms on the 26th floor that overlooked the fountains and Bally's when all the construction was going on and never once did I hear anything. I could see guys banging with hammers and jack hammers, but not a peep. Just some perspective on the noise level of the Cromwell pool party music!

    The regular rooms have been renovated more recently than the GO rooms, although the bathrooms were not. The regular rooms are fine, the one I stayed in had a very hard bed and I despise hard beds. I like the big TV, the glassed in shower, the tv in the bathroom mirror, the refrig, and the nice soft bed in the GO rooms.

    Okay, good to know. Last time I stayed there, construction was going on BUT the LINQ and Cromwell weren't. I just booked a flight/hotel Flamingo. Cheap. But I guess there is a reason for the cheap.

    Where would be the ideal location/area in the hotel for the quietest GO rooms? I noticed you said 26th floor and above? But any other tips for a light sleeper? And I do have sleeping pills as well, if needed. :)

    I will be there Sept30-Oct3/14

    wife and I stayed at Flamingo a few years ago for NYE. We had a high level room facing Bally's. Went up there at midnight and watched the fireworks. It was much better that standing on the strip at midnight like we did the year or two before.
