I just got home tonight and had a great stay at the Flamingo. I had a comped FAB deluxe room and used the $20 trick to score a mini suite on the 5th floor. We arrived around noon and there were only about 5 people in line and the TR line was moving very slowly so we waited about 10 min in the regular line. The room was very nice over all. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The bathroom was very small for a suite though. We had some friends who stayed in a FAB deluxe with strip view and I was glad we got the upgrade. The FAB room was very nice and did look new, but it was tiny compared to the minisuite. Also, even though they were on the 22nd floor, the music from Pure across the street did keep them up at night. The property itself is not nearly as bad as people have let on. Yes, it is an old property but the vibe is very fresh and young and it was packed every night. The rooms were clean unless you are a serious nitpicker. I would stay there again.
