We returned home in the wee hours this morning. This trip was to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. It was a 3 generation event. My Mom and I travel almost annually to Vegas and stay at Flamingo. We have never been to Vegas this late in the year. It was HOT, hot as in furnace blowing in your face hot! I will report a couple of observations........ We arrived Monday evening at 8:00 pm. A few people ahead of us in line, it moved quickly. Our front desk agent Ruth was delightful. I asked for an upgrade to Go room, was willing to pay for it. She gave us room 27047 overlooking pool and High Roller. Executive floor so a bit more room. Room was very clean Elevators a nightmare! We learned quickly not to use to Spa tower as half of the elevators were out of service. There were signs telling guests that later in the week. In the mornings, it seemed even the main elevators were not all in use. Stopped on almost every floor even if no peeps ready to get on. Now the pool...........no wristbands the night before as far as I can tell. We got in line at 8:30 for 9:00 am opening. Very confusing as to what pool line was what. For the adult pool, the line snaked back almost to Carlos and Charleys. The first day we got frustrated and found the line for the other pool. We got three charis no issue, not many kids around. Drink service good. Second time we lined up at 8:30 as well. At least this time they had security checking ID's while in line. That saved some time. They did check all bags and no food or drink allowed in. Even empty water bottles! We got three seats but quickly moved back to other pool. Far too crowded and chairs right on top of each other. To be fair, we only stayed until lunch time as the heat was oppressive. I am sure if my daughter had been there with friends of hers, the GO pool would have been where they stayed. We checked out without going to front desk as line ups were a mile long. There are errors on our bill that I am trying to rectify. The parking garage always a challenge but seemed a little better than when we were in town in Vegas. Still so frustrating. Overall our experience was great. My daughter loved it, my Mom was just happy to be with us and I would return to Flamingo again. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone has!
