It all started with the Flamingo. Located smack in the middle of the Strip, this hotel and casino is symbolic of classic Vegas. The original Flamingo, opened in 1946 by notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel, sparked the beginnings of a city which would become the entertainment capital of the world. Guests of the modern day Flamingo will enjoy comfortable accommodations within easy access of all the Strip has to offer.
The Flamingo Las Vegas offers 3,565 guestrooms and suites, with the modern Flamingo Go Rooms offering amenities such as iPod docking stations and flat panel TVs. The hotel features 15 acres of stunning gardens with lush flowers, palm trees and waterfalls. Stroll through the Wildlife Habitat featuring swans, turtles and, of course, a flock of live Chilean Flamingos. Take a dip in one of five pools, including the 80-foot-long heated Flamingo Pool open year-round, or the secluded adult GO Pool which features European-style sunbathing and private cabanas with bottle service, 52-inch plasma TVs and Xboxes. A spa and fitness center is also on-site.
The huge Caribbean-style casino houses 70 gaming tables, a race and sports book and more than 1,600 slot machines. The Caribbean theme continues at singer Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville restaurant with live nightly entertainment, five bars and two outdoor patios offering views of the Strip. Other dining options in-house include the all-you-can-eat Paradise Garden Buffet, Hamada of Japan with teppanyaki-style cooking and the classic Steakhouse46. The Flamingo also offers 24-hour room service.
For those planning a wedding, the Flamingo offers a choice of six romantic venues. Couples can say "I Do" in front of a picturesque waterfall surrounding by tropical gardens, or at an indoor chapel at the highest peak of the garden hills. Wedding coordinators are available as well as a variety of wedding services.
