The Details

Flamingo Las Vegas

Flamingo Las Vegas will reveal 2,307 refurbished hotel rooms, on sale now for guest arrivals beginning Jan. 2. The new accommodations will update the rooms for a more stylish and contemporary feel.

The refurbishment, which was designed by Westar Architects, is currently under way, with the first 500 rooms available to guests starting in January. From then on, the resort plans to complete approximately 100 rooms every 11 days and finish the project in late 2012. This will conclude the final phase of standard room upgrades, which will add to the Flamingo GO Room build-out that began in 2006 with 1,032 rooms and suites. 

“Flamingo has established itself as one of the Strip’s original resorts with a classic nostalgia reminiscent of vintage Las Vegas,” said Rick Mazer, president of Flamingo Las Vegas. “The upgraded rooms will build upon the elements that Flamingo is most known for while brining a completely new energy to the property for an unforgettable Vegas experience.” 

The new rooms will be designed to create a residential feel through a combination of modern decor and simple luxury, such as wood-toned furnishing and flooring. Flamingo pink will also be present in the redesign for a splash of Flamingo’s signature touches. Contemporary chaise lounges, patterned rugs and vintage Vegas framed artwork will also be included for stylish appeal, while upgraded beds with pillow-top mattresses, plush linens and faux fur throws will be incorporated to address the comfort side of guest stays. FAB rooms will also be equipped with 32-inch flat-screen Plasma televisions as a modern convenience. 

Flamingo’s refurbishment will help keep the centrally located Strip resort’s more than 3,500 guestrooms and suites modern. The resort also features a 15-acre pool and wildlife habitat complete with waterfalls, island vegetation and tropical wildlife, as well as three distinct pools, multiple outdoor wedding gardens and a variety of restaurant and entertainment options. Updates to the hotel will also include a new eatery, Carlos’n Charlie’s, which is set to open this winter. 

Rooms start at $85 per night with no resort fees.
