    I'm considering going in October and thinking of splitting my time between Flamingo and the Wynn. I know, quite the big difference, but I love experiencing the full spectrum of Vegas. My question is, what room is better Flamingo Room or GO Room? I would do a strip view, king bed for either. Both options would be comped. I stayed in the GO room about 6 years ago, but it says the Flamingo room is recently renovated. From pictures I would think Flamingo Room is better, but I was curious if any of you have first hand knowledge? Disclaimer - I don't care about glass showers, jet tubs, etc. I just want CLEAN and newer if possible!

    Thank you!

    You can do Flamingo, just dont touch the doors or buttons in the elevators. I recommend Paris to experience the CET versus Wynn LOL

    I didn't care for the Go Room, especially the frosted glass sliding door for the bathroom. If you're alone, no problem. But with a room mate, whether friend or significant other, it lacks privacy when performing certain tasks.
    And either the walls are really thin or the people next to us were particularly loud. I couldn't get any sleep with those assholes partying next to us.
    I'd assume the Flamingo Rooms are better, but never tried them myself.

    Flamingo rooms were completely renovated last year. Go rooms were done around 2008.

    I had a Go room last year and it was fine for a comp to have a place to wash up before a red eye flight.

    Exactly... Go rooms were the way to go back then. Now? Not so much.

    I agree, but for some reason Paris says sold out every day of the month?! I’d even be willing to pay a little more for Paris. I have time, maybe things will change cause clearly they are not sold out!

    Anyone know anything about the Flamingo Executive Room? I noticed it says it is has all the amenities of a Flamingo Room, just larger. I'm curious if Executive means better floor/view, etc? Anyone stay in one recently?

    I just booked the Flamingo Executive room for this Friday-Sunday. I'm hoping to get upgraded to a Flamingo Junior Suite. I'm not sure why I booked Flamingo when I have every other property comped except for Nobu. I'll report back on the room if I keep the reservation.

    I've stayed in all of them. I would take a standard Flamingo room over a standard GO room.

    The Flamingo Executive room is larger than the standard Flamingo room. It has a small couch and a table with 2 chairs. That table with chairs may come in handy currently considering the restaurant situation. You might find yourself grabbing food to take and eat in your room.

    The Flamingo Junior suite is a small suite with a separate bedroom. It's nice, but it is small for a suite.

    I'd take a GO Mini Suite over all of them. No separate bedroom, but the bed is in an alcove-type area with a tv for the bed(there's another tv in the living area). It also has a ceiling fan above the bed, which I love. There's a two door(doors actually open like normal doors) closet that is quite large. And the shower still has those wall jets, which are nice. The couch opens into a bed if you need that. It's a spacious, comfortable room. One of the better mini-suites I've seen.

    I have a GO room right now and it is horrible. They said it has been recently renovated but everything is totally worn down, I would hate to see what a FAB room is like, since this GO room is on par with a non-renovated Motel6 room.

    By the way, the Flamingo pool situation is horrible. Everyone is suppose to text at 10 am to get on the list to go the pool, and I am 0 for 3 days now.

    Overall, I would strongly advise another Caesars property. I was at Harrahs Vegas in February and it was awesome. I am switching there now for the rest of the trip.

    I've got a comped Go Executive for the first 5 nights of my trip next summer, but might cancel it and just do two lots of 5 nights at Paris instead.

    Wanted to tick the dirty bird off, but having second thoughts now, lol.

    This leads me to my next question....

    I could stay in a Paris Burgundy room fully comped or Flamingo Go, Resort, or Executive fully comped...which do you think is best?

    Paris only is offering Bugundy or Burgundy end of hallway. I have always wanted to stay at Paris but afraid the burgundy rooms as the “worst” option.

    I like more amenities at Paris...Pool, Food, Casino floor, connection to Bally’s so it seems like an obvious choice. However, I feel the room options are better at Flamingo...curious your thoughts...

    After reading about the pool situation at the Flamingo I'm considering changing my reservation to Bally's or Paris. With the high being 114 degree this weekend I won't be able to last longer than an hour at the pool. I'd like to be pop down quickly, get some sun, then get back to the tables.

    Usually I pick my hotel based off comps and where I enjoy playing VP while having a breakfast beer. I have all of the CET casinos comped this weekend, but since bars are closed I don't have a strong opinion on where I'm staying this weekend.

    That’s the thing, I have all CET properties basically comped for when I wan to go. The only one that I would consider that isn’t fully comped is Caesar’s and honestly I’d rather pay a little more for Caesars. However, if I do go fully comped I’m debating between Flamingo or Paris. I have never considered Bally’s and Harrahs property just doesn’t do it for me. So the big debate is Falamingo, Paris or extra for Caesars?! I love/hate these decisions!lol

    I've stayed in a Paris Burgundy room and though it was really nice. I'd rate it better than a Forum room at Caesars. The shower is huge and the bed was comfortable. I like Caesar's but prefer to be on the east side of the strip so I can easily hop from one craps table to the next.

    There's no debating that Paris is a much nicer property than Flamingo. Do you ask for backend comps at the end of the trip? Cost of the room is one thing to consider if you do.

    I never have asked. I’m not a high roller, or ever felt I spent enough to ask...
