I think this is my 3rd review of Flamingo over the years...after a while of staying away we have returned and are happy there. Location really can’t be beat. We are Seven Stars level with Caesars Rewards so this affords us a little extra love when it comes to rooms, checkin/out etc. Check in was a breeze in the VIP check in room, but as I mentioned in my last review, we really miss the VIP experience that used to happen in this area with a little cookie and possibly a cocktail at check in. Now all that is offered is water. We were given a newly remodeled Fab Suite on the 28th floor. The room is a full 1 bedroom suite with a living room, dining room, wet bar and foosball table off the living room. Also a water closet off the living room. Down a hall with a huge set of closets you come to the bedroom which is quite large. Bathroom is dual vanity and has separate shower and large soaking tub. Bed was comfortable, room was super clean and air conditioning worked very well. View was of the pool/habitat area. Fantastic room, even though it is pretty far away from the habitat elevator banks.As many have complained there are timeshare hawkers in both the lobby area and at the entrance to the habitat elevator banks. While annoying, we have just gotten used to walking by and not even making eye contact. While they try to engage you, they will leave you alone if you do not engage with them back.Unfortunately this trip, we were disappointed as the Laurel Lounge has now been closed as well as the steakhouse, it is all walled off as they are remodeling for a new steakhouse soon to come. In the last few years Flamingo has certainly not been a destination for exceptional food...it really is a wasteland now. A “food court” a chain Mexican restaurant and Margaritaville are all that is on property. But...since it is Las Vegas, there are so many choices within a short walk it really isn’t as horrible a situation as it could be. One of the things I like most about Flamingo is that it is built right on the strip, so not that far of a walk from the elevators to get right out on the strip.The casino is the same as always...a fun eclectic crowd, sometimes loud but definitely bustling. It was Rodeo time and while Flamingo had rodeo aficionados, Linq and Harrah’s really seemed to cater to them and that made those two casinos a little more active. Drink service was just fine while I was in the casino...I always tend to start my gambling in the casino room nearest the lobby because Lory is one of the servers there, and she is awesome. Always remembers us and even remembers our drinks! Biggest shortcoming in the casino is the restroom...there is only one for the entire casino floor and it is always a disaster, wish hotel management could do something about that...it really brings the whole evening down when you are having a great time, but then have to hike yourself over to that one horrible restroom. And hopefully management reads this review since I am going to make one more criticism...the elevators, both lobby and habitat...Why are there two separate call buttons for these elevators? Take the habitat banks...two sets of 4 elevators on each call button. So people push both to get the fastest elevator. Can’t blame them they want to get where they want to go...but then the other set still stops at that floor even though there is no one there. Had one elevator ride down from the 28th floor only to stop at 3 different floors with no one there to get on. Can’t you designate one set of elevators for floors 2-16 and the other set for floors 17-28 or something like that?Rant over...we still love Flamingo even though it has its challenges. staff is always great, location can’t be beat and new room renovations have really brought the place up!
