    I just got an offer in my email for MGM that would give us a West Wing King room and $75 dining credit for $125 more than our Flamingo Go Luxury Strip View room.

    Can anyone who has stayed in both tell me more about what you liked?

    Flamingo seems like a smaller Hotel, which might be nice. But MGM would mean more options on MyVegas rewards, more central on the strip (I think??).

    Flamingo we probably have a view of the Bellagio fountains.

    This is our first trip and likely out last for a couple of years (Kids want to go on vacation too....... go figure.....)

    Also, if my husband booked 2 nights and I booked 3 nights would we both be able to get the $75 dining credit on our trip?

    Help me make a decision!!

    Go with the flamingo....you will be closer to all the action and the go room is slightly better than the west wing. And actually the flamingo is way closer to centre strip, MGM is on the south end of the strip!

    MGM will provide better options for restaurants and the casino itself is a bit more upscale. The casino at Flamingo is dated but still a fun environment. If you are someone who is going to stay at your resort the majority of the trip then MGM is your choice. If you want to travel around to different resorts the location of Flamingo is superior.

    I would go with Flamingo. You would probably both get the dining credit at MGM if you book two separate reservations.

    I have stayed both and would go with flamingo. The west wing rooms can be a hike and also reminded me of a an inside cruise cabin. I didn't like it at all.

    Used both rooms on my last 2 trips

    Flamingo has a much better location and the GO room is a lot bigger than the mgm west wing room, i would not use the mgm room for a couples vacation, more than fine for a solo trip

    but The mgm is a much nicer property and has a lot more to offer

    The West Wing at MGM is actually the old Marina Hotel in which i have stayed at in the 80's. MGM used to be where Bally's is now.
    I would choose Flamingo. Centrally located and a great pool and lots of dining options right next door at the LinQ.
    I have also stayed at MGM and the property is very nice, however, the rooms are still the Marina........which was great in the 80's.
    So, West Wing no.........Flamingo GO.

    Flamingo Go room...the WW rooms at MGM are smallish. Like the location of Flamingo better. MGM is a much better property overall, but the Flamingo gets the nod for the better room comparison, location, pool, and easier access to the strip.

    FYI - When you book MGM through My Vegas you get West Wing. I've done that for three nights (separate) now and never had a problem getting bumped up to the main tower by asking.

    This is awesome! Thanks for all the replies.

    After talking it over with my husband, we are sticking with our Flamingo room. Wish we were going sooner though!!!
