    I lucked up and got 5 nights comped at the Flamingo for fight weekend (4/29-5/4). The wife wanted to return to vegas because her 22 yr old son (my step son) was traveling with his girl that weekend but their travel partners just backed out! I think that she is concerned about those 2 being in Vegas by themselves on that crazy weekend. Any reason worked for me, although we just returned from Vegas on March 25th!!

    To say that I was shocked when I pulled out my TR offers and saw that those 5 days were being offered, is an understatement. The next day when I checked the fight Friday and Saturday were listed as $211.00 and "options". I haven't stayed at the Flamingo in probably 10 years. I don't need to hear any of the bad stuff about the hotel ( I can pull that up elsewhere in VMB). I am curious about the FAB rooms ( 2 queens non smoking). If anyone has had any experience with those then please let me know about any reccomendations. I'm platinum and I believe that I can check in at the Diamond registration so I'm not opposed to asking about a specific room before the week end fight crowd arrives ( I arrive Weds night, the wife arrives the next day). We check out Monday 5/4!!

    We have stayed in the Fab dbl queen room and it was nice and clean. The bathroom is small and the floor in the room can be a bit slippery so be careful. We just ask for a quiet room. You'll be in Vegas in a clean room....enjoy!

    I stay in these rooms regularly and never had an issue. True you're not going to get glamour and style but it's made up for in location. You'll get a standard room (clean, but in need of renovation in my view). A nice easy walk onto the strip and great pool! And comped :drunk:

    They are more than fine. Everything is clean, and roomy. The rooms are easy to get to.

    Thanks for the quick feedback beckers, simpatt and EC Vegasfan. I guess I'll have to get used to a room with out carpet. that sounds like the main drawback. Comped makes it all worthwhile!! Plus I sleep like a baby!!
